TVS Motors will host the commercial launch of Apache RR 310 in Chennai on December 6, 2017. TVS showed the motorcycle's design intent in the form of the TVS Akula at the 2016 Auto Expo in Delhi and everybody has been waiting for it. The actual name of the motorcycle is still not confirmed, but it is likely to be the TVS Apache RR 310 - an extension of the Apache brand that has done so well for TVS.
It features a BMW-developed engine and the international test rides for the motorcycles - the G 310 R and the G 310 GS - confirm a smooth, swift but not frantic engine. The BMW G 310 R is powered by an all-new 313cc motor that makes 34PS at 9,500 rpm and generates 28Nm at 7,500rpm. The motor is paired to a 6-speed transmission. We are not expecting TVS to make dramatic changes to the feel or tune of this engine. The engine is placed 'backwards' in the frame with the intake on the front and the exhaust port facing the back of the motorcycle.
TVS and BMW will not overlap with each other in terms of selling these motorcycles in India. TVS will retain the Apache RR 310 and any future variants and products off this platform from its own sales network and service them through the TVS service stations.
