Ever since it was launched back in 2017, the TVS Apache RR 310 has been appreciated for its bold looks and performance for the price segment it sells in. The flagship for the Indian two-wheeler manufacturer, the engine powering the RR 310 is the same one doing its duty in the BMW 310 duo. The TVS RR 310 is continuously gaining popularity in India, outselling some of the known rivals.

As per the latest sales data from June 2019, TVS sold 338 units of Apache RR310, higher than its closest rivals KTM RC 390 and Kawasaki Ninja 300. While Kawasaki managed to sell only 110 units of Ninja 300, the KTM RC 390 also sold no more than 100 units, considering its younger and cheaper sibling 390 Duke managed to get only around 255 buyers.

TVS could soon launch the Special Edition of Apache RR 310 in India that was first showcased at Columbian Auto Show ‘Feria de las 2 Ruedas’ in May 2019. The Special Edition comes with a matte black paint finish which are complimented by red and white decals.
