Latest On TVS Apache RR 310

June 11, 2018: TVS will be racing a race version of the Apache RR 310 in their one-make race series. The Apache RR 310 is TVS's flagship motorcycle that sits in the 300cc entry sports bike category.
The Apache RR 310 looks striking with its track focussed design and on the road looks more like a 600cc motorcycle. Fit and finish and switchgear quality is top notch. Despite its sporty design, it has fairly comfortable ergonomics. Coupled with the torquey and tractable motor, riding the RR 310 is an effortless affair. Ride quality despite being set on the stiffer side is plush. Headlamp focus is good but could have done well with a wider spread. Mirrors offer fantastic visibility. It handles quite well and feels light-footed in the city. Brakes lack initial feel but offer good bite. Tyres grip well in dry conditions. The downsides are vibrations, especially around the 6000rpm range. TVS have been working to reduce them, the latest improvement being the addition of new, larger bar-end weights.

Editor's View of TVS Apache RR 310

  • Upside

    Great handling, looks fantastic, top-notch build quality

  • Downside

    Brakes could use more feel, some vibrations at mid-range

  • Our Verdict

    We have the Apache RR 310 in our long-term test fleet. Straight off, the torquey and tractable motor makes riding in the city effortless. The riding position, though on the sportier side, is comfortable. Even in the summer heat, in traffic, the motor does not radiate heat towards the rider legs so that's a plus. Night riding isn't an issue though we would have liked a wider spread from those twin LED projector headlamps. Ride quality is a tad on the stiffer side but offers good cushioning. Another interesting observation is that the ride quality improves with speed and also with a pillion aboard. Braking lacks initial feel but offers good bite. Another issue is vibrations which are especially prominent around the 6000 rpm mark. TVS has been actively working towards reducing these vibrations. One such example is that the bike now gets larger bar end weights to quell vibrations. Under tests, the bike returned a fuel efficiency of 31kmpl in the city and 35.9kmpl under highway test conditions. These figures are quite good considering rest of the bikes in the segment return around 30kmpl. Overall it is a good bike to have if your main criteria are riding in the city and the occasional racetrack/twisties ride and if you can live with its characteristic vibrations.

TVS Apache RR 310 Highlights

Design and Features

The Apache RR 310 looks striking with its track focussed design and on the road looks more like a 600cc motorcycle. Fit and finish and switchgear quality is top notch. Despite its sporty design, it has fairly comfortable ergonomics. Coupled with the torquey and tractable motor, riding the RR 310 is an effortless affair. Ride quality despite being set on the stiffer side is plush. Headlamp focus is good but could have done well with a wider spread. Mirrors offer fantastic visibility. It handles quite well and feels light-footed in the city. Brakes lack initial feel but offer good bite. Tyres grip well in dry conditions. The downsides are vibrations, especially around the 6000rpm range. TVS have been working to reduce them, the latest improvement being the addition of new, larger bar-end weights.

Specifications

Another key highlight on the Apache RR 310 is the 312.2cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine that has been derived from the BMW G 310 R. While power and torque figures are the same. They are developed 200rpm earlier in the rev range. As a result, 34PS comes in at 9700rpm and 27.3 Nm of torque is produced at 7700rpm. TVS also claims a top speed of 160kmph and a 0-60kmph time of 2.93 seconds. Weighing at 169.5kg (kerb), the dual-channel ABS-equipped Apache RR 310 gets 300mm petal disc up front and a 240mm petal disc at the rear.

Competitors

KTM RC 390: While the KTM RC 390 is priced higher than the Apache RR 310, it packs in a lot more punch packed with more tech like the slipper clutch and is a pure track-focused machine. It has remained a go-to option for riders looking for a dedicated track tool owing to its ergonomics, suspension setup and handling characteristics.

Kawasaki Ninja 300: The Kawasaki hasn't garnered a lot of fame in India, owing to its price tag. It does come across as a very potent track tool with not so sharp ergonomics as the KTM. Making it a more approachable machine for riders to use it for their daily stints as well. Plus the additional money gets you an extra cylinder and a reliable brand name. Power though is still not at par with the KTM and the option of ABS to is sorely missed.

Benelli 302R: This Italian offering doesn’t have the performance to match either the KTM or the Ninja 300. But what it does offer is a big bike feel, an addictive sounding in-line two motor that is immensely tractable. The ergonomics and comfort offered are also a lot more relaxed in comparison to the above two. But the cost is a bit too demanding for the overall quality and for what you get as a package.

ZigSays

The Apache RR 310, despite being designed as a track focussed bike, is quite usable in the city thanks to its torquey and tractable motor. It offers a good balance between ride and handling as well. While brakes lack initial feel, they offer good bite. Another issue is vibrations around the 6000rpm range, which TVS has reduced to a fair degree. It is a good option to the focussed KTM RC 390, trading a bit of performance for everyday usability.
