TVS is keen on launching new products in the Indian market, while the brand is constantly working on keeping its model lineup fresh by updating the existing offering. The latter exercise has been now performed on the daddy of its Apache series of motorcycles – Apache RR310.

Besides, the owners can also choose a different colour option for the wheel and can have a race number on the front windscreen.

2. Features

On this front, the Apache RR310 has come a long way from where it started. In fact, this particular phase of transition lends it with more tech on board. The 5.5-inch instrument console can now save documents, namely RC, insurance, PUC, driver license and more. Moreover, there’s a new rev limiter on offer now, along with an over-speed indicator.

3. Performance

TVS has managed to tweak the Apache RR310 on this front by a huge margin. However, it continues to use the existing trellis frame and the 310cc motor. Also, the power and torque outputs remain as is at 34 PS and 27.3 Nm, respectively. Nevertheless, the brand is now offering two kits with the Apache RR310 – Dynamic Kit and Race Kit.

Talking of dynamic kit first, it comprises fully-adjustable front forks, fully-adjustable rear monoshock, and a brass-coated drive chain. The front forks offer adjustability for compression & rebound (20-step) and pre-load adjustability (15 mm). The rear monoshock, on the other hand, comes with the rebound (20-step) and pre-load (10-step) adjustments.

The race kit, on the other hand, is designed for those looking for tailored ergonomics for a more aggressive rider’s triangle. It alters the position of handlebars, which are now moved downwards by 8 degrees and inwards by 5 degrees. Also, the footpegs are now higher by 30 mm, resulting in a 4.5-degree increase in the rider’s lean angle.
