The new BS6-compliant RR310 looks meaner than before and comes loaded with features

  • The BS6 Apache RR310 is around Rs 12,000 more expensive than before.
  • Power and torque figures are similar to the older model. 
  • Now equipped with ride by wire, rider modes, a 5-inch TFT display and more.

The TVS Apache RR310 is the bike maker’s flagship motorcycle. So it’s a big deal whenever TVS announces an update. Case in point, the new Apache RR310, which has received the most comprehensive update so far. Priced at Rs 2.40 lakh (ex-showroom), the 2020 iteration is Rs 12,000 more expensive than the older model. 

Thanks to a leaked video that surfaced online a few months back, we know what the new Apache RR310 looks like. The changes are not just limited to the cosmetic department because TVS has gone back to the drawing board with this one and added some really cool features. For starters, it gets an all-new 5-inch TFT display with Bluetooth connectivity to see post-ride analytics, accept and reject calls, as well as get turn-by-turn navigation and vehicle health info. Moreover, there are four rider modes: Rain, Urban, Sport and Track. It also gets Glide Through Technology Plus, which works like torque assist where the rider doesn’t have to modulate the clutch or twist the throttle at low speeds. 

The 312cc motor is now BS6-compliant and belts out the same power and torque figure as before (34PS and 27.3Nm). And the ride modes are not a gimmick, they actually make a difference in power. In the Rain and Urban mode, the engine output is restricted to 28.5PS, whereas in the Sport and Track mode, you have the full 34PS on tap. However, you can use the Sport and Track mode only after the first service. The ride modes also affect the ABS. 

Transmission duties are handled by a six-speed gearbox with slip and assist clutch. Additionally, it now comes with ride by wire. While the braking hardware is the same as before, TVS claims that they have slightly tweaked the suspension setup of the 2020 RR310. It now comes with Michelin Road 5 tyres, instead of Michelin Pilot Street. All these changes have made the BS6 RR310 around 3.5kg heavier than before. How do these changes affect the overall performance of the 2020 RR310 on the track and in the real world? We will answer this question shortly. 

The BS6 Apache RR310 goes up against the Benelli 302R, the Kawasaki Ninja 300 and the KTM RC390, which has just been updated to meet the new emission norms. Did anyone say a track shootout? Or is it just us?
