The ultimate track weapon born out of 40 years of engineering prowess and dominance of TVS Racing, the Apache RR 310 is our ultimate feat of engineering. Crafted to be a sports bike yet capable as a touring bike, it has proven to be the best in its segment. We have left no stone unturned when it comes to performance, design, safety and the overall philosophy behind the RR 310.
Talking about the numbers, the bike gets powered by a 312 cc, DOHC engine, driven by a 6 speed gearbox with race tuned slipper clutch delivery a peak power of 34PS and 27 Nm, making this track machine clock 0-60km/h in just 2.9 seconds with a maximum speed of 160km/h.
Apache RR 310 boasts the first-in-segment ride modes – tame the city streets effortlessly with gentle throttle response in Urban and Rain modes. In Sport and Track modes, you get to access the full 34 hp of peak power as the throttle response is sharper. Also, the Multi Information Race Computer features a dedicated interface and graphics for the four ride modes. Once you connect with your smartphone with the bike, the SmartXonnect kicks in and offer a range of in-depth post ride analysis and race telemetry including gear shift points, G-force, best lap times, and more. This data helps a racer hone and perfect their craft.
Dynamic Chassis and Suspension
TVS Apache RR 310 TVS Apache RR 310 is one of the very few bikes in India developed with a trellis frame that offers high dynamic stiffness - a key characteristic of any track machine. The mass-centralised layout it offers provides a low centre of gravity for uncompromised handling and agility while offering substantial weight reduction and excellent power-to-weight ratio, making it a perfect bike for both touring and performance.
When it comes to ride quality, the duty is well taken care of by race-tuned suspension honed and tuned by experts from KYB. The Monoshock with Monotube floating piston technology offers adequate stiffness for high-speed stability and hydraulic stoppers with check valves provide better damping. So, once the motorcycle has encountered a bump and the compression part is over, the lower valve of rebound damping allows the suspension to expand and the wheel to reach back to the surface quickly with a minimal jerk on the handlebar.
All this power calls for a firm grip on the track. For the same, TVS Motor has equipped the bike with superior Michelin Road 5 tyres; these are engineered with next-gen compounds and feature Michelin’s patented ACT+ technology for the ultimate grip while cornering and a superior ride feel.
Crafted to Impose
Inspired by the deadliest predator - the shark, TVS Apache RR 310 is conceptualized to have an aggressive and ready-to-attack silhouette.
● The Bi-LED Twin Projector headlamp is a first-in-segment feature, offering clear visibility even in harsh racing conditions.
● Snake fangs-inspired LED tail lights complete the high sporty rake tail by giving the Apache RR 310 a unique visual signature.
● Aggressive stance with a raked-high tail and forward weight bias to make it streamlined.
● Honed using static and dynamic ergonomic testing gives the racer ultimate control of the track.
● Extensive testing and designing in a state-of-the-art tunnel has yielded the best coefficient of drag, as the Ram-Air intake provides excellent thermal management by channeling air towards the engine, while the Gill Vents channel hot air away from the engine and the patented deflector cowl diverts hot air away from the racer.
In terms of safety, it starts with the chassis – the racing-origin Trellis Frame is a forged aluminum die-case swingarm that offers greater stability. Along with that, the suspension is also Race tuned hydraulic stopper with check valves that offer better damping, resulting in a stiff and stable handlebar that enhances overall bike control. The dual-channel ABS prevents wheel lock, and rear wheel lift-off protection keeps the racer’s wheels on the track, even when braking late into corners.
There’s a reason why we call the RR 310 pure racecraft!
