Apache RR 310 is the flagship model from Indian two wheeler manufacturer TVS. It is the only fully faired motorcycle that brand sells and it is also the most powerful motorcycle from TVS. We have seen many videos where the Apache RR 310 can is involved in a race with other motorcycles. Here we have a video that shows how the Apache RR 310 performs among other 300-cc segment motorcycles in a highway top-speed race.
The video has been uploaded by Ayush Verma on his youtube channel. The video shows TVS Apache RR 310 racing against Kawasaki Ninja, KTM RC 390, KTM Duke 390 and Bajaj Pulsar RS 200. First, it is against the Kawasaki Ninja 300. Both motorcycles start racing and immediately as expected Ninja 300 takes the lead and maintains it till the end. Second round of the race where riders switch the bikes the result was the same but however, the Apache had took the lead in this round for quite some time before being overtaken by Ninja. That could have been because of the riding style and the weight of the rider.
Next it races with the KTM RC 390 which is one of the most powerful motorcycle in the segment. The result in this race was also no different the RR 310 was left behind and the KTM RC 390 had won the race. Till now in the video, the Apache RR 310 was only competing with fully faired motorcycle. In the last round vlogger had ridden the RR 310 against the KTM Duke 390 which is a street naked motorcycle and again one of the most powerful motorcycle in the segment. As expected, the Apachhe RR 310 was left behind and could not match the sheer power from the Duke 390.
As a bonus vlogger races it against the Pulsar RS 200 as well. He mentions that this was done for fun and both bikes belong to 2 different segments. In this round both RR 310 and RS 200 get a rolling start and the race starts only when the bikes hit 120 kmph mark. The Pulsar RS200 as we know is less powerful than the RR 310 and as the race starts, the Apache smoothly overtakes the RS200.
TVS Apache is by no means a slow motorcycle. In comparison to the other motorcycles in the segment it generates less power. recently TVS launched the BS6 version of RR 310 and it gets a changes like a BS6 compliant refined engine, a new fully digital colour TFT display, 4 riding modes and so on.
