TVS Apache RR310 Specifications
TVS and BMW Motorrad joined hands for the development of a new entry level performance motorcycle, the G 310 R which will be sold under the BMW brand. The Apache RR310 will also benefit from the TVS-BMW collaboration. Mechanically, as you would’ve read in our previous reports, the 310 cc single cylinder, liquid cooled engine is based on the BMW G310R’s motor, where it is rated at 34 bhp and 28 Nm. The performance numbers on the Apache RR310 are yet unknown but they’re likely to be in the same range.

TVS Apache RR310 Design
The motorcycle features an all new, muscular design and a full fairing. It comes with a step-up split seat and going by the previous spy images, it appears to be a well cushioned. The tall windscreen which should offer good protection from the wind at high speeds. Following the windscreen is the vertically designed instrument console with gear-shift indicator.
The switchgear quality, as seen in the spy images, look at par, if not better than its rivals. Headlight switch has been removed as the motorcycle, like all BS-IV compliant two-wheelers, will feature all-time running head lamps.
