2019 TVS Apache RR310 Launched; Gets A New Slipper Clutch

TVS Apache RR310 is now updated with a Race Tuned (RT) slipper clutch. The updated sportsbike also receives a new colour option now.

TVS has updated the RR310 with a Race Tuned Slipper Clutch, replacing the older wet-multiplate clutch. The new clutch provides quick gear shifting with low hand fatigue and maintains vehicle stability at high speed during downshifts.

Along with this, the TVS Apache RR310 is available with a new colour option – Phantom Black. The other colour options offered on the bike include Racing Red and Racing Black.

The updated bike is now priced at Rs 2.27 Lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi), getting costlier by Rs 5,000. There are no other changes on the updated RR310.

TVS Apache RR310 continues with the same 312cc liquid-cooled reverse-inclined engine, that delivers 34 BHP at 9700 RPM and 27.3 Nm of torque at 7700 RPM. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox.

This engine is developed in collaboration with BMW Motorrad. That’s why you get the same engine on the BMW G 310 R and G 310 GS. The engine tuning is also the same for all the three motorcycles.

The suspension is handled by inverted telescopic forks at the front and Two-arm swingarm with a Kayaba monoshock suspension at the back. It uses a stiff suspension setup, owing up to its sportsbike behaviour.

Braking is handled by a 300mm petal disc at the front and a 240mm disc at the back, with dual-channel ABS. The bike tips the scales at a mere 130 kgs.

Features onboard include Bi-LED projector headlamps, Race-Spec Trellis Frame, a vertical fully digital instrument console, split seats, Low-placed clip-on handlebars and dual-ABS setup.

TVS Apache RR310 goes against the likes of KTM RC390, KTM Duke 390, BMW G 310 R, Kawasaki Ninja 300 and Honda CB300R. Prime rival is the RC390, which is costlier than the RR310.
