The TVS Apache will be launched on the 6th of December, and media rides will start from tomorrow. The bike will be unveiled at the Madras Motorsport Race Track in Sriperumbudur, Chennai. Even before the official reveal, here are a few spyshots of the bike that have been leaked from the race circuit.
The leaked pictures clearly show many details about the new TVS machine. The bike gets a full fairing with enough wind protection at the front. It also gets split headlamps. It looks like a proper race bike, and is probably the best looking affordable sportsbikes in the country at the moment.
The new Apache will be the fastest and costliest bike that TVS Motors has sold in the Indian market. It is expected to command a price pf about Rs. 1.8 lakhs. Rumours put the top speed of this bike at 165 Kph. The 0-60 Kph acceleration will be nothing short of maniacal at 2.73 seconds.
The bike will use a 313 cc single cylinder, four stroke engine. This engine, which gets fuel injection and liquid cooling, is expected to produce at least 34 Bhp of peak power and 28 Nm of peak torque. A six speed manual transmission will be standard on the new bike.
TVS is well known for running a racing program that allows the company to develop bikes on the race track. This gives TVS bikes excellent road grip and handling. The Apache RR 310S will be no different. It gets a trellis frame that is light yet very stiff.
It also gets upside down suspension at the front made by Kayaba, and a single monoshock at the rear which is gas charged and adjustable. The brakes on both wheels are pedal discs and ABS is standard. The Apache will also have an aggressive riding position. It will take on the KTM RC390.
