Advice on a good sports bike for daily commute

12th Mar 2019 2:33 pm

Upgrading from a Yamaha FZ Version 1.0 to a TVS Apache RR 310 for a 6ft 2in tall person.

I am new to the world of motorcycles and learned to ride one only a couple of months ago. Since then, I’ve been riding a Yamaha FZ version 1. Is it a good idea to upgrade to the TVS Apache RR 310, or is it too soon? If not, please suggest a good sports bike that would suit me for daily commutes. Note that I’m fairly tall, at 6ft 2in, and I’ll be using my bike for daily commutes to college.

AAA The Apache RR 310 is a quick, but forgiving sports bike and it’s fairly easy to live with on a day-to-day basis as well. However, we’d suggest you spend some more time on the FZ before you upgrade. The basic lessons come easy, but there are still a number of finer skills you’ll need (especially on our roads) and these only come with time and practise. It’s always safer to learn at a lower pace, and the FZ offers a good dose of fun without getting overwhelming.

The RR 310 will fit you decently well, but it won’t be easy for you to find a properly spacious bike to fit
your frame at this price point. You best bet in that regard would be to look at an Adventure tourer like the BMW G 310 GS or the upcoming KTM 390 Adventure.
