Reports suggest that TVS Apache RR310 will receive some mechanical upgrades as well as improved handling by the end of this month!
TVS Apache RR310 reportedly received minor performance upgrades a couple of months back. The owners of the bike were notified, who were given the upgrades free of cost.
Now, looks like TVS is officially launching the updated sportsbike in India. TVS’s flagship motorcycle was launched back in December 2017. Most likely, it will receive a significant performance bump.
TVS Apache RR310 is likely to receive an updated engine with a revised ECU. The power and torque figures will also be increased. The chain roller problems and the vibrations will be rectified in this update.
Currently, RR310 uses a 313cc liquid-cooled reverse-inclined DOHC engine, that is tuned to deliver 34 BHP at 9700 RPM and 27.3 Nm of torque at 7,700 RPM. The motor comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox.
In this update, the top speed of the bike will also increase. Currently, it reaches a top speed of 145 km/hr. The same engine comes on the BMW G 310 R and GS, which go up to 141 km/hr.
Reports suggest that the handling of the RR310 will also be improved. We can expect few tweaks to the chassis and suspension. It now uses Upside-Down forks at the front and a monoshock at the back.
Cosmetic upgrades might include addition of the new Carbon Edition, which was showcased at an auto show in Columbia. In this edition, TVS Apache RR310 gets bigger and snazzier decals with a Matte colour.
The invites show the silhouette of the RR310, which seems to be the same. It is already the best looking TVS motorcycle, and also one of the best styled in its segment.
With the update, the Apache RR310 will see its prices hiked by a small margin. Currently, it is priced at Rs 2.22 Lakhs (ex-showroom), and goes against KTM RC200, BMW G 310 R, Honda CBR250R and Royal Enfield Interceptor 650.
