BS6-compliant TVS Apache RR 310 To Get A New Instrument Cluster!


It is likely to be a TFT console and could get smartphone connectivity too

[UPDATE: The 2020 TVS Apache RR310 Is Here!]

  • The BS6-compliant TVS Apache RR 310 gets a redesigned instrument console with directional buttons on the switchgear.
  • It also comes with a new colour scheme with revised graphics.
  • Like the BS6-compliant RTR 200 4V & 160 4V, the power figures in this motorcycle is also expected to change.

The BS6-compliant version of the TVS Apache RR 310 has been spotted testing for the first time. It gets a redesigned instrument cluster. While the current-gen motorcycle gets a vertically stacked console with an angular design, this one gets a more rectangular layout. It still has a portrait orientation, though. Also, the switchgear on the left side features directional buttons which should make navigating through the menus a lot easier.

Expect the instrument cluster to be a TFT unit and it is likely to get smartphone connectivity too, with features a la the Apache RTR 200 4V. Many manufacturers are offering nifty features to compensate for changes in the engines’ output figures in the BS6-compliant models, and also for the inevitable increase in price. So, this could be TVS’ way of offering customers something tangible in addition to meeting the new emission norms.

We’ve already seen changes in the output figures in the RTR 160 4V as well as the RTR 200 4V. So expect the BS6 Apache RR 310 to witness a slight decrease in performance in favour of cleaner emissions. For reference, the 312.2cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled motor churns out 34PS at 9700rpm and 27.3Nm at 7700rpm.

The TVS Apache RR 310 is already loaded with premium components like inverted cartridge fork, rear monoshock, trellis frame, petal discs on both ends with a radial caliper up front. Expect the BS6-compliant model to carry over the same set of underpinnings.

TVS could launch the motorcycle in the country in early 2020. As far as the price is concerned, the BS6-compliant Apache RR 310 is likely to command a premium of around Rs 15,000 considering the changes required in the catalytic converter, new switchgear and also the TFT console (if TVS indeed offers it). The current-generation Apache RR 310 is priced at Rs 2.28 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). When launched, it will go head to head with the KTM RC 390 which is also bound to get BS6 updates soon.
