The TVS Apache RR 310S will be priced somewhere in the range of INR 1.9 lakhs to INR 2.1 lakhs (on-road). TVS may even surprise everyone by pricing it lower. This bike will have to be priced aggressively. There is the Bajaj Dominar which is priced very aggressively, however the TVS bike is expected to have better engineering. At the same time, the TVS Apache RR 310S even has a fully-faired body. The new Apache RR 310S will be launched this year, and it is more of a wait and watch situation as there is no other 300cc sports bike at the moment.

TVS Apache RR 310S Engine
There will be an all-new engine on this bike. It will also be the biggest that TVS has ever made. This 310cc bike will have 34bhp of power and a good torque of 28Nm. In our view, the upcoming BMWG310r would have similar specs. The power and torque figures will be more or less the same. This engine will come mated to a six-speed gearbox and this should be a smooth shifting unit. The gear ratios might be different from the BMW and this bike will be tuned for more comfortable cruising rather than outright power.
TVS will look tuning this bike in a manner where it can also be used for daily commutes, other than riding on the track. The engine is also expected to be a very refined unit and offer a pleasurable ride.

It will get twin headlamps and will also have LED daytime running lights. The taillamps also are unique and look stylish. These are LED ones. The TVS Apache RR 310S will have a light-weight alloy frame construction. The light weight will enhance its performance as well. The BMW G310R, which will also be made by TVS, will share many parts from this bike.
This will be a trendy looking bike and will also have those mean looks. It is not a very tall bike and will be suitable for short riders as well, just as other TVS bikes are. There is a digital instrument pod, similar to the KTM RC bikes.
The sharpness on the front that was showcased on the TVS Akula 310 can be seen on the Apache too. The bike does look stylish and trendy in the spyshots of this bike. It even seems to be low in height as well. This could be a bigger version of the Yamaha R15. The TVS Akula 310 should get a digital speedometer and a sporty looking set of alloy wheels too. There is a longish, clear glass windshield on the TVS Apache RR 310S.

TVS Apache RR 310S Mileage
With about 310cc engine, this engine should return close to 35-40 km/l. We reckon that should be majorly due to the engine tuning and even the light weight of the bike. This should be good enough for a bike of this size.
