TVS motor company has put up a teaser on the internet which looks like the silhouette of the new updated version of its flagship motorcycle, the Apache RR310. The bike was first launched in 2017 in India and the new version which will be launched soon is expected to have more power and also receive a few cosmetic updates.
The brand has its own championships and the race variant of the Apache RR310 which is constantly tested on the race track could make some of its tech available to the road-going production model with this new update. The motorcycle was recently revealed in Columbia in a matte black finish along with sporty decals and stickers and the graphic design could make its way to India.
The Apache RR310 is powered by a reverse-inclined, 4-valve, 312.2cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine producing 34 PS of power and 23.3 Nm of torque coupled to a 6-speed gearbox. The new variant is likely to have the engine tweaked to get more juice out of it. The chassis is a split type trellis frame and the bike rides on inverted cartridge-type telescopic forks on the front and a monotube gas assisted floating piston shock absorber on the dual arm aluminium swingarm at the rear. The motorcycle has a wheelbase of 1365mm and a seat height of 810mm. The Apache RR310 weighs 169.5 kg (kerb) and has an 11 litres fuel tank capacity. The braking duties are performed by a petal-type 300mm disc on the front and petal type 240mm disc on the rear equipped with a dual-channel ABS.
The Apache RR310 can do a top speed of 160 kmph and can sprint from 0-60 kmph in 2.93 seconds and the new model is expected to be slightly faster. The new Apache RR310 is expected to be launched by the end of May 2o19, around the 28th, with an expected price of INR 8,000 to 10,000 more than the current motorcycle, priced at INR 2.13 lakhs ex-showroom, Mumbai.
