TVS Motors has put out a teaser of the Apache RR 310S sportsbike, which will be launched on the December 6th, 2017. The fully faired sportsbike will be the most expensive bike produced by TVS Motors. It is expected to be priced at Rs. 1.8 lakhs, making it the flagship bike from the Indian motorcycle brand.
It will be the fastest and most expensive Apache ever built. The Apache RR 310S is expected to be a proper track oriented sportsbike, similar to the KTM RC200 and RC390. It is likely to be priced in between the two KTM motorcycles.
The bike shares its engine with the BMW G310R. The exact state of tune has not been revealed yet. On the BMW, this 310cc engine produces a peak power of 34 Bhp at 9,500 rpm, and a peak torque of 28 Nm at 7,500 rpm. The single cylinder engine gets liquid cooling, fuel injection, four valves and twin overhead camshafts.
It is paired to a 6 speed manual gearbox. We do know that the Apache RR 310S will be very fast as there have been many spy videos of the bike doing over 160 Kmph. So, power and torque figures should be more or less similar to those on the BMW bike, or even better.
Suspension on the new TVS bike will be a highlight. The front end will have upside down forks and the rear will feature an adjustable monoshock. Since TVS races its bikes extensively, suspension set up is expected be a high-point on this bike, making it a very sharp handler. Braking will be handled by petal disc brakes both at the front and the rear. It will have anti-lock braking system as standard. We expect the bike to weigh less than 160 kilograms given how quick it has been on the road. Over to the launch.
