Features like rider modes, ride-by-wire, and a full-colour TFT screen make the RR 310 one of the best value-for-money bikes in the current two-wheeler market

 

TVS may have turned the tides with the launch of the Apache RR 310 BS6 model. Not only is it easier on the environment, but it also punches well above its weight thanks to a ton of features comparable to higher displacement bikes. All for a price of just Rs 2.40 lakh -- Rs 12,000 more than the BS4 model. This makes it one of the best value-for-money propositions in the two-wheeler market. Having said that, we’d like to clarify that we haven’t considered electric two-wheelers here. 

 

Most Affordable Bike To Feature A Colour TFT Screen: 

The TVS Apache RTR BS6 is the least expensive motorcycle in the Indian market to come equipped with a 5-inch full-colour TFT instrument console. And it raises the stakes with features like vehicle health information, vehicle status and overview, post-ride analytics, lap timer, 0-60 timer and top speed recorder over and above the usual readouts. The control cubes on the left-hand-side switchgear allow you to accept and reject calls.

Ride-by-Wire Technology:

 

The crown for the most affordable bike to feature RBW throttle earlier belonged to the KTM RC 390. However, TVS has managed to snatch this position with the BS6 Apache RR 310. What’s the big deal, you ask? Well, this nifty system electronically controls the throttle valve actuation without having the need for any mechanical linkage. The system offers precise control over the air/fuel mixture, which, in turn, provides more performance and better fuel-efficiency.  

 

Most Affordable Bike to Feature Rider Modes:

The inclusion of RBW throttle opened up various opportunities for TVS Motors. In this case, enabling the brand to incorporate four riding modes (Rain, Urban, Sport, Track) with two separate power maps. The first two modes restrict the bike’s power output to 28.5PS, while the other two unchain all 34 ponies. The same goes for its torque output, which stands at 25Nm and 27Nm respectively. Interestingly, these modes also affect ABS sensitivity and intrusion. You can read all about it here.

 

Features Michelin Road 5, W-rated Radials:

According to Hosur-based two-wheeler manufacturer, the Apache RR 310 BS6 is the first bike in the world to come factory fitted with stickier Michelin Road 5 W-rated tyres. Michelin says, the patented siped treads on the tyre offer excellent grip in both wet and dry conditions further improving the bike’s handling capabilities.
