2018 TVS Apache RR 310 Colours:
The motorcycle comes in 2 impressive colours – Racing Red and Sinister Black.
The Apache RR 310 is powered by a unique reverse inclined DOHC (double overhead cam), 312cc, single-cylinder, 4-stroke, 4-valve, liquid-cooled engine. This facilitates a compact layout for an ideal power-to-weight ratio and better mass centralization. The motor develops 34 PS at 9700 rpm and 27.3 NM at 7700 rpm.
The engine is mated to a 6-speed super-slick gearbox. The fully faired motorcycle is claimed to reach a top speed of 160 km/h and can accelerate from 0-to-100 km/h in just 7.17 seconds.
The advanced aerodynamics package of the TVS Apache RR 310 promises the lowest coefficient of drag in its segment. It uses an all-new, race origin, light-weight trellis-frame chassis for enhanced stiffness in straights, and flex for dynamic cornering capability, that results in best-in-class riding dynamics.
The TVS Apache RR 310 is equipped with a race-inspired vertical speedo-cum-tachometer with 18 racing tell-tale diagnostics, and a comprehensive post-ride analysis. The motorcycle is also fitted with first-in-class bi-LED twin projector headlamps for maximum reach and visibility. It runs on Michelin Street Sport tyres and is the first sub-500cc motorcycle to use these.
TVS Apache RR 310 features a fully-faired, sporty design with superior ergonomics to ensure maximum ride comfort. The Thermal Management System on the motorcycle is fitted with a special gill profile to shield the rider’s leg from engine heat and aids better heat dissipation.
To accentuate the handling and ride experience, the TVS Apache RR 310 gets the Race Spec KYB Suspension that is tested and tuned by MotoGP experts. Both, Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) and Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) system, will be available as standard this motorcycle.
