TVS is on its way to launch the first fully faired motorcycle in its catalogue as Apache 310RR in India. The biggest ever Apache ever developed by TVS gets the 313 cc engine from the BMW G310R and also shares the same frame with the latter. Let us remind you that the Chennai based company had joined hands with BMW back in 2013 to develop mid segment bikes and the BMW G310R was the first product of the strategic partnership. The TVS Apache 310RR is also more or less on the same lines too.
TVS Apache 310RR is the most daring attempt by the company so far
TVS is the third largest manufacturer in the Indian two-wheeler segment and has kept to manufacturing lower segment scooters and motorcycles. However, the Apache line up comes in three different engine capacities now and has maintained quite an image for TVS. With the TVS Apache 310 RR the company wants to lure the performance oriented bike enthusiast in the Indian market. The new motorcycle gets a 313cc engine and produces a 34BHP of power and 28nm of torque.
While the power figures might not be exceptional or even close to the competition bear in mind that the bike is manufactured locally by TVS in India itself which will help the company to price it really well. The Apache 310RR also marks the debut of first fully faired motorcycle by TVS and while we have not seen the bike in full flesh but we remember how the TVS Akula looked like at the Auto Expo 2016 and boy are we excited.
Launch and Price of the TVS Apache 310 RR motorcycle
The TVS Apache 310RR will launch in India on the 6th of December and mark the entry of Chennai based company into performance bikes in the country. The bike will compete with the likes of Kawasaki Ninja 250, KTM 390 and the soon to be launched BAJAJ-Husqwerna motorcycles. Although the motorcycle makes lesser power than the competition TVS is hoping that its price will be its selling point instead. Expect the TVS Apache 310RR to launch at a starting price of 1.7-1.8 lakh rupees in India.
