The latest spy shots of the fully faired motorcycle from TVS, the Apache RR 310, reveal the entire design and what looks to be the third colour option for the bike. The images reveal the front and side of the 313cc motorcycle, completely undisguised. Also seen is equipment like the front petal disc, LED headlight and Michelin tyres.
The bike is completely matte black and almost prototype-looking. However, the contrasting decals and the production-ready fit and finish suggests that it may be another colour option, as, just over a week ago, we saw leaked brochure images of the motorcycle in red and blue, with colour-matched frames. All three colour schemes appear devoid of excessive graphics, which will appeal to many buyers.
The RR 310 features fairly upright clip-on handlebars, a large windscreen, rear-set foot pegs, a USD fork (finished in a golden colour), as well as a monoshock. The bike will be equipped with 17-inch, five-spoke alloy wheels (finished in black) as standard.
At present, no mechanical details are known except for the fact that the RR 310 will get the same 313cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder motor from the BMW G 310 R. While the peak power and torque outputs for the BMW stand at 34hp and 28Nm, respectively, there’s a chance that the engine will be tuned differently for the TVS. We do believe that many of the underpinnings will be shared with the BMW, although the Apache RR 310 could be priced competitively keeping in mind its rivals, the KTM 250/390 Duke, the RC 390 and also the Bajaj Dominar.
