The JMD insisted that the company had enough capacity at its Hosur plant to make the it (TVS Apache RR 310) in India for the world market. But as Bajaj Auto became popular by releasing the RS200 full-faired flagship bike, TVS has finally made the move with the Apache RR 310 and it appears to be the right choice in jumping up the brand image. It certainly looks like a good package, combining a strong engine with modern details but the kicker is the price. The TVS RR 310 can be yours for Rs 2.05 lakh (ex-showroom) with deliveries starting from the end of the month. The TVS Apache RR 310 is the most advanced and exclusive offering in our product portfolio, as it is a manifestation of 35 years of learnings from the race track, coupled with cutting-edge technology.

Sudarshan Venu, joint MD, TVS Motor Company said, "We will launch this product phase wise but reasonably quickly in our global markets as well".

The Apache RR 310 has been equipped with twin LED headlamps and LED DRLs that give it a mean grin, sitting below a large windscreen. The fuel tank flaunts the TVS horse logo in a bold silver finish on either side.

TVS Motor Company today said it has forayed into the super-premium segment with the launch of TVS Apache RR 310. As a result, the Apache RR 310 produces 34PS at 9,700rpm and 27.3 Nm at 7,700rpm.

The engine comes mated to a six-speed transmission and it will help the sportsbike achieve a top speed of 165 kmph.

The front sprocket size has been altered from 16 teeth on the BMW to 17 teeth on the Apache. The front gets berry transformed forks and the back comes suspended on a monoshock with gliding cylinder. In view of a trellis outline, the Apache RR 310 measures 169.5kg and claims a 0-60kmph run time of only 2.93 seconds. The ground clearance is also decent at 180mm. The Apache RR 310's 17-inch front and rear wheels are shod with 110/70 and 150/60 Michelin Pilot Street tyres.

The RR 310 has a kerb weight of 169.5kg and to bring it to a halt, it gets a dual-channel ABS assisted 300mm front disc and a 240mm rear disc brake.
