TVS rides 'Apache' into super premium space
The TVS Apache RR 310 is powered by a 312cc, single-cylinder, four-stroke, four-valve, liquid-cooled engine that develops 34 PS at 9700rpm and 27.3 Nm at 7700rpm. The mileage of the Apache RR 310 is expected to be in the range of 25 - 30km/l. The official teaser of TVS Apache RR 310 released a few days ago, it is having superior performance, great riding dynamics, combined with a powerful, and expressive design.
According to TVS Motor Company, President and Chief Executive Officer, KN Radhakrishnan, the new motorcycle shares a "common platform" between the two companies. The engine is mated to a six-speed gearbox. The motorcycle boasts of a top speed of 160kmph, and acceleration from 0-60kmph in just 2.9 seconds.
Unveiling the new TVS Apache RR 310 at the launch, Sudarshan Venu, joint managing director, TVS Motor Company, said: "The launch of TVS Apache RR 310 marks a major milestone, as it ushers in a new era at TVS Motor Company". Our endeavour is to fulfill the aspirations of discerning customers by offering high-quality, technologically-innovative products. "In the last quarter we sold more than 35,000 units per month of the Apache RTR", said Venu. The all new Apache RR 310 will surely create a benchmark in the market. Being one of the most crucial bikes for TVS, the company has put in some serious man hours, putting the RR through a number of tests like the wind tunnel test for aerodynamics and track tests on multiple circuits in order to ideal its riding dynamics and handling characteristics.
One of the features that the RR carried forward from the Akula is the vertical information console-cum-speedo which gives out a whopping 18 racing diagnostics and comprehensive post-ride analysis.
TVS so far was in the up to-200cc segment in the Apache series.
The motorcycle equipped with twin projector head lamps is the first fully faired motorcycle offered by TVS Motor. It is also outfitted with Michelin Street Sport tyres, and is the first sub-500cc motorcycle to use these. The motorcycle comes in 2 impressive colours - Racing Red and Sinister Black.
TVS also gets the RR 310 a Thermal Management System which fits a special gill profile so as to shield the rider's leg from engine heat, and better heat dissipation. While the market was growing at 10% for the past five year, TVS Motor had been growing well above 25%, he said.
