TVS recently launched the 2019 Apache RR310 with a new colour option, minor visual and mechanical changes
TVS launched the updated 2019 Apache RR310 recently in India priced at Rs 2.27 lakh (ex-showroom). According to the recent report, TVS Motors flagship offering is now available with zero down payment offer and a low EMI of just Rs 4,444. Although the offer is not visible on TVS Motors official website, interested buyers can visit their nearest dealers to know the details of this new offer.
Compared to the outgoing variant, the 2019 Apache RR310 gets a few cosmetic and mechanical updates. The updated motorcycle is now available with a new Phantom Black (glossy black) colour option besides the existing Racing Red colour option. TVS also replaced the “35 Years of TVS Racing” sticker that was previously positioned on the rear panel with a brand new ‘RR310′ sticker.
TVS Motors has put in a lot of effort to improve the refinement levels of their flagship offering. The bike maker has added heavier bar end weight, rubber padding on the visor (to stop it from vibrating and making noises), and a new chain roller. Additionally, the bike maker has also remapped the ECU on the motorcycle.
TVS have also added a new slipper clutch to the motorcycle recently which can also be retrofitted to the old Apache RR310. The slipper clutch helps in avoiding rear wheel locking when the rider downshifts aggressively from higher gears at high speeds. This feature is also available with Apache RR310 closest rival the KTM Duke 390 as well.
That said, the motorcycle is still powered by the same 312.2 cc reverse-inclined, liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine. This unit paired with a 6-speed gearbox produces about 34 PS of peak power at 9,700 rpm and 27.3 Nm of max torque at 7,700 rpm.
The motorcycle depends on an upside-down telescopic fork at the front and a monoshock unit at the rear. The barking duties of the motorcycle are handled by a 300 mm disc at the front and a 240 mm unit at the rear. A dual channel ABS is also offered as standard for the safety of the rider.
