We rode the RR 310 on track and came back with a huge grin on our faces. But is it impressive enough in real-world conditions?
We finally get on-board the much anticipated TVS Apache RR310. Here are our thoughts after spending a day riding it around the Chennai race track.
The Apache RR 310 looks striking with chiselled lines and sharp angles, much suited to its track-focused nature. The vertically designed instrument cluster looks unique and comes with a lap-timer. One of the highlights on the RR 310 is the dual LED projector headlamps. As is the case with the build quality, the switchgear quality too is top notch and the bike feels premium in every manner.
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.
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.
The Apache RR 310 comes across as a welcome addition to the line-up of entry-level sports bikes in India. While it's far more accessible than the Benelli and the Kawasaki it does face some fierce competition from the KTM RC 390. So if you have a budget of around Rs 2.5 lakh and aren’t looking for something that is too track focused and want a good balance of everyday usability as well, then the Apache RR 310 should be the go-to bike.
TVS Apache RR 310 is available in 2 Colours :
Great handling, looks fantastic, top-notch build quality
Brakes could use more feel, some vibrations at mid-range
On the track, the TVS Apache RR310 an approachable and forgiving machine, but needs some skill to master, and is very rewarding when you do. On the road, it is comfortable to ride and the tractable motor makes city or highway riding a breeze. It really manages a fantastic balance of performance, handling and everyday practicality.
