The price increase will come into effect from 1st January 2020, which is likely to be the date when the Apache RR 310’s BS6 version will be launched in the Indian market.
Edit: The price mentioned in the article is not an official announcement from TVS. The pricing mentioned in the post is erroneous we have received an official communication regarding the same from the company. The updated prices of the BS6 variant of the Apache RR310 and other products will be shared officially on the TVS website as and when it happens. The documents in this post are not official as per TVS.
The leaked document on Team-BHP also suggests that other scooters and two wheelers from TVS Motors will also get significantly pricier. The lowest price hike will be on the TVS XL100 moped, which will get pricier by Rs. 7,450. Most of TVS Motors’ commuter motorcycles and automatic scooters will see price hikes between Rs. 8,000-10,000. The bigger price increases will be on the Apache range of sporty motorcycles, of which the RR 310 is also a part.
The Apache RR 310 is TVS Motors flagship motorcycle, and is powered by a 313cc, four stroke single cylinder engine that it shares with the likes of the BMW G310 R and G310 GS. The engine is liquid cooled, fuel injected, and runs a four valve head with twin overhead camshafts. It produces 34 Bhp of peak power and 28 Nm of peak torque, and is paired to a six speed manual gearbox that’s now offered with a slipper clutch as standard.
While the slipper clutch was added to the Apache RR 310 recently, owners of the initial batches of the sportsbike can get the slipper clutch retro-fitted. The Apache RR 310 is sharply styled, and looks like more a 600cc motorcycle than a 300cc bike. It gets a red coloured trellis frame, which looks quite striking. A full fairing is standard, and the Apache RR 310 has aggressively styled body-work all around.
The bike gets upside down front forks and monoshock rear suspension. Brakes consist of petal discs at the front and rear. Dual channel ABS is standard. Projector headlamps are standard up front while the LED tail lamp gets a very distinctive design that makes identifying the Apache RR 310 very easy even from a long distance. Apart from selling the Apache RR 310 in India, TVS Motors exports this sportsbike to many countries around the world. The motorcycle is available across all TVS Motors dealerships in India. TVS Motors also runs a one-make racing championship around the race-spec version of the Apache RR 310, which makes a lot more power and torque than the road going model.
