TVS has launched the 2019 Apache RR 310 at Rs 2.27 lakh. The updated version now gets minor mechanical and cosmetic changes for just Rs 3,000 more. For reference, the current model is priced at Rs 2.24 lakh (all prices, ex-showroom, Delhi).
The biggest change on the motorcycle is the introduction of the slipper clutch, which is now a segment standard feature. The slipper clutch will most certainly improve the RR 310's capabilities on the track and enable riders to downshift without the rear wheel locking up. The clutch lever pull is also expected to get lighter thanks to the new clutch, which in turn will reduce fatigue.
For 2019, the Apache RR 310 will also gets a new ‘Phantom Black’ colour scheme. While the older model was available in black, the new one appears to have a different finish and a unique red and white stripe. This new version comes just after the recent update issued to fix the chain roller problem, reduce vibrations and increase the top speed.
The 2019 RR 310 will continue to be powered by the 312.2cc, single-cylinder DOHC motor that makes 34hp and 27.3Nm. TVS has also said that the RR310 also comes with improved 'driveability and ride feel'. We will be riding the bike tomorrow, so look out for our first ride report.
