TVS Motors has launched the Apache RR 310, its flagship motorcycle, in the Nepalese market. It has been priced at NPR 7,79,900, which is equivalent to Rs. 4.87 lakh. The motorcycle will be exported to Nepal from the company’s Hosur production plant in Chennai.
The Apache RR 310 is a result of TVS’ partnership with BMW Motorrad and thus shares its platform and powertrain with the G 310 R. This is a 312cc, single cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that puts out 34PS at 9,700rpm and a peak torque 27.3Nm at 7,700rpm while being mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox. This transmission system sends power to the rear wheel through a chain drive mechanism.
The motorcycle has been developed with the company using inputs from its long racing heritage. This results in a superior aerodynamic and drag performance, thus resulting in one of the best handling motorcycles in its price range. The company claims a 0-60 kmph sprint time of 2.9 seconds and a top speed of 160 kmph for the RR 310.
The TVS Apache RR 310 gets race-spec KYB suspension forks at the front and back, which are claimed to have been tuned by racing professionals. All this is mounted on an all-new, race origin, lightweight trellis frame chassis that is engineered to offer appropriate stiffness levels on the straights, and flexibility in the corners.
It is worth noting that the Apache RR 310 isn’t the only TVS Motorcycle to be sold in Nepal. The company has a large product portfolio in the country, which includes TVS Stryker, Star City+, Victor, Wego, Jupiter Base, ZX & Classic, Dazz, Zest 110, XL 100 and XL 100 Heavy Duty.
