There is a new web report that puts the launch of the TVS Apache RR310 S in December 2017. The report stops short of revealing the exact date of launch. The report also goes on to add that the bike will have a price tag of around 1.8 lakhs, making it the most expensive bike that TVS has ever sold in the Indian market. The Apache RR310 S, first shown as the Akula concept, will be TVS Motors’ flagship bike.
Talking of specifications, the bike will feature a 310cc four stroke engine borrowed from the BMW G310R. This engine will have a four valve head with twin camshafts. Liquid cooling and fuel injection will be standard. Expect peak power to be in the range of 33 Bhp, generated at around 9,500 rpm while peak torque could be around 28 Nm, generated ar 7,500 rpm. The bike will feature a 6 speed manual gearbox.
The bike will ride on alloy wheels fitted with tubeless tyres. Both wheels will have disc brakes for effective braking with ABS offered as a safety measure. The bike will get a new trellis frame, and this is the first time such a frame is being offered on a TVS motorcycle. In terms of performance, it will be TVS Motors’ fastest ever bike with a top speed of over 160 Kph. The bike is expected to challenge the KTM RC390 in terms of performance.
Spyshots that have nearly revealed the bike indicate that it will be a racy, fully faired model with an aggressive riding position. It will have upside down front forks and a monoshock rear. Since TVS Motors tests its bikes extensively on the track and also has an ongoing racing effort, we expect the bike to have track-tuned handling dynamics. The Apache RR310 S is expected to be a great handler, with aggressive power delivery.
