Thanks to the BMW and TVS collaboration, TVS Apache RR 310 sees the light of day. It takes a sportier design approach inspired by Akula 310. To be honest, it does look good giving an excellent performance for thrill-seekers. The bike is designed to give riders the best of both worlds; good for a commuting and as well as in the track. The riding position is comfortable for long rides, hazard light switch, and the instrument cluster comes with awesome features like average speed, top speed, gear position, etc. Apache RR 310 truly comes with TVS Racing DNA.
Unfortunately, there are a few key features missing. It misses out on “Slipper Clutch”, present in its sibling RTR 200 4V. This might give its rivals like KTM Duke 390, KTM RC 390, and Dominar 400 a competitive edge. However, the question remains: Is Apache RR 310 is worth all the hype surrounding it? Well, that is yet to be seen.
