TVS Apache RR310 is not the only motorcycle to have witnessed a price increase as the Sport, RTR 200 4V, RTR 160 4V FI, RTR 160 and RTR 180 get slightly dearer as well
TVS Motor Company has given a substantial price hike to the recently launch flagship Apache RR310. With a price increase of Rs. 8,000, the faired supersport now costs Rs. 2.23 lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi). The RR310 was launched in India in December 2017 with an introductory price of Rs. 2.05 (ex-showroom) and the highly-capable motorcycle has seen good reception from customers across the country.
BMW Motorrad’s engineering excellence comes in handy during the development of the Apache RR 310 as well. The supersport derives power from a single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, 313 cc engine developed which is also utilised in the upcoming BMW G310R.
The engine is good enough to produce a maximum power output of 34 bhp at 9,900 rpm and 27.3 Nm of peak torque at 7,700 rpm. It is mated to s six-speed transmission. The Apache RR310, built on stiff space frame chassis, is claimed to accelerate from zero to 60 kmph in just 2.3 seconds.
Some of the main features are dual-channel ABS, horizontally stacked fully-digital instrument console, monoshock rear suspension, split grab rails, USD forks, cast-alloy swing arm, scorpion like tail lamps, twin projector headlamps, tall windscreen, clip-on handlebar, etc. The Apache RR 310 rivals the successful KTM RC 390, Yamaha YZF-R3, Benelli 302 R and Kawasaki Ninja 300 and is endorsed by TVS to have born out of its storied racing pedigree.
The Hosur-based company appears to have silently revised prices of the Apache range, Wego and Sport as well. The Wego 110 sees a price reduction of Rs. 2,000 and has its base variant starting at Rs. 50,165 with disc brake version at Rs. 53,083 (ex-showroom, New Delhi). Popular models like Jupiter, Scooty Zest, Victor 110 and Scooty Pep+ have their prices unaltered.
In a similar fashion to Bajaj Auto, TVS has slightly increase prices of its motorcycle range in the first month of the new financial year. The Sport 110 commuter gets dearer by Rs. 850 and the naked Apache series witnesses a hike of Rs. 500.
