Apache RR 310 is one of the best marvels of Indian automobile design. Even though the power train is from BMW Motorrad, the sports bike is entirely designed by TVS in India.
Just glancing at the bike makes it hard to take your eyes off it. The unique shark-inspired design gives the bike killer looks and powerful vibes. The motorcycle is built on a lightweight, racing-origin trellis frame, which offers superior structural efficiency and better stiffness.
The bright LED headlamp looks like shark eyes giving a piercing beam of light that cuts through darkness and provides superior visibility. It also gets equipped with daytime running lights.
The 11-litre fuel tank is strikingly muscular and robustly built, which makes the bike look like a mighty beast. The fully-faired cowl covers the engine and looks like a true blue sports bike.
The upswept rider saddle has a height of 810 mm, which makes the riding experience extremely pleasant and effective for riders. The step-up rear seat makes the bike look razor-sharp, and it gives a comfortable travelling experience to pillion passengers.
The extreme rake tail incorporates sporty LED taillights inspired by snake fangs, which gives the rear a lean and mean look. The motorcycle has a sophisticated and advanced wind tunnel that’s painstakingly designed and tested to provide best-in-class aerodynamics.
The upswept black exhaust pipe ticks the right boxes in design and looks. The wheels are typical of a high-quality sports bike.
TVS Apache RR 310 comes in two colour options:
TVS Apache RR 310 comes in one variant:
The SmartXonnect multi-information race computer displays all crucial information about the bike, including navigation and cellular notifications for your commute.
Michelin’s patented ACT+ technology tyre has water evacuation siping and provides wet-weather longevity. The tyres can withstand any weather condition and terrain in the country and beyond.
The bike has a KYB mono-shock and monotube floating piston hydraulic stopper that delivers a smooth ride even on the roughest road. Like a shark with gills, the motorcycle gets equipped with a patented deflector cowl with Gill vents that provides a passage to hot air from the engine.
The intake design uses the sports bike’s dynamic air pressure, or rams pressure, to increase the static air pressure. The ram-air intake is a unique manifold system that forces outside air into the motor.
Engine coolant jacket optimisation lets the cylinder head reduce engine temperature by 40°C and has the best heat management capacity. The six-speed shift gearbox gets optimised for strength, quiet, high-speed running and quick and efficient navigation.
The bike comes equipped with DRLs to provide better visibility during the day, and the shark-inspired halogen headlamp renders brilliant light at night, while the daytime running lights render extra visibility. The bright and multi-colour LED tail lamp illuminates when brakes are applied.
You can connect Apache RR310 to your mobile phone via an exclusive TVS mobile app, and the GPS and navigation feature gives the precise location and ensures smooth navigation.
The Glide through technology enables the bike to crawl at a lower speed and provides more low-end torque.
The name of the bike alone gives away its displacement capacity. Powering the motorcycle is a 312.2 cc single-cylinder, four-stroke, four-valve, reverse inclined DOHC, SI engine mated to a track-tuned six-speed gearbox.
Unlike its BS4 predecessor, the BS6 engine offers four riding modes—Rain, Urban, Sport, and Track. In the first two riding modes, the power train can churn out a maximum power of 25.8PS @ 7600rpm and a maximum torque of 27.3Nm @ 7700rpm. In the last two modes, the mill can generate a maximum power of 34PS @ 9700rpm and a peak torque of 25.8Nm @ 7600rpm.
The engine features a cylinder head, devised and manufactured to have the best heat management. The engine coolant jacket optimisation reduces engine temperature by up to 40°C, enabling the power train to rev and perform better. The engine also has Gill vents that expel hot air from it.
The unique reverse inclined Double Over Head Cams (DOHC) engine effectively uses the upstream air through the air filter with ram effect.
A six-speed gearbox handles the transmission of the bike. A four-piston radial fixed calliper 300mm petal disc with ABS at the front, and a single-piston axial floating calliper 240mm petal disc with ABS at the rear perform the braking duties.
The motorcycle is built on an aluminium Trellis frame and directly connects the steering head to the swingarm pivot using a metal tube arranged in triangulated reinforcement. A KYB inverted cartridge telescopic fork takes care of the suspension at the front, while a two-arm aluminium die-cast swing-arm, mono tube floating piston gas assisted shock takes care of the suspension at the rear.
The petal disc brakes are light in weight and disperse heat more efficiently because of a reduction of over 20% of their surface area.
