The new TVS Apache RR 310 is undoubtedly the best looking commuter friendly sports bike to launch in India in a long time. First showcased at the 2014 Auto Expo in New Delhi as the Akula Concept, it took 4 years for the Indian auto manufacturer to convert the concept in to a production motorcycle, and it’s safe to say that the wait was worth it!
Post the launch, TVS is releasing videos to showcase how the Apache RR 310 was conceptualized and designed. What excites us the design video, as it’s the USP of the TVS Apache RR 310. Design is something that took the market by storm and people are creating analogies between the design of superbikes like Ducati Panigale and Triumph Daytona.
The video explains how the designers of the Apache RR 310 took inspiration from predator like Shark, which is known to extremely agile, quick and aerodynamic. As explained the video, the designers at TVS aimed to achieve maximum performance out of the 310 cc motor that produces 34 bhp and 27.3 Nm of torque.
The aerodynamic design has helped TVS Apache RR 310 achieve 0-60 kmph figure in just 2.9 seconds and a top speed of 160 kmph. The raked high tail, forward weight bias and a streamlined design are some of the key factors that led to such a performance oriented machine.
We also did a first ride review of the Apache RR 310 at the Madras Motor Race Track in Chennai and came out impressed with the overall design, detailing and performance of the bike. Here’s our review –
