The TVS Apache RTR 310 has been observing testing once more. The latest test mule appears to be production ready and could be unveiled shortly, as TVS has sent out invitations for a September 6 launch. TVS has chosen a youthful and crisp design approach for its next streetfighter motorcycle. The headlight, tank shrouds, radiator covers, rear side panels and overall styling all point to a dynamic bike. Despite being camouflage, it is clear that the RTR 310 bears little resemblance to the BMW G 310 R. Rather than the traditional rear body integrated design, TVS has chosen a distinct side-mounted tail consisting of the turn indicators and number plate holder above the rear tyre hugger. The upswept exhaust on this test bike resembles the one on the current faired Apache.
The engine from the Apache RR 310 will be use in the RTR 310. It has a 312.2cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine produces 33.5bhp at 9,700rpm and 27.3Nm at 7,700rpm. A six-speed gearbox is connect to the motor. LED lighting and a completely digital TFT with smartphone connectivity are also promises. The spy photos show the RTR 310 test bike with a twin-pod LED tail light. The TVS Apache RTR 310 will be equipp with USD front forks and a mono-shock, as well as a single front and rear disc with dual-channel ABS. It’ll have 17-inch alloy wheels wrapped in road-biased rubber. With a wide, single-piece tubular handlebar and rear-mounted footpegs, the rider triangle appears to be a mix of athletic and functional. Having said that, the pillion seat appears to be undersized in these spy images.
We believe that TVS would price the new Apache RTR 310 around Rs. 2.50 lakh (ex-showroom). The RR 310, for example, costs Rs. 2.72 lacks (ex-showroom, Delhi). When it is released, it will compete with the KTM 390 Duke, which will also be updated, the BMW G 310 R, the Bajaj Dominar 400, the Honda CB300R, and the QJ Motor SRK 400. Furthermore, the new Apache will be the most powerful naked TVS motorbike.
