TVS’ flagship sportbike, the Apache RR 310 now available

Back in July, BMW Motorrad India announced that they are already taking orders for the 2023 G 310 RR sportbike, which will be available in dealerships late this year.

While there is no doubt that the new G 310 RR, dubbed as the BMW S 1000 RR’s little brother, is a nice entry-level sportbike, the sub-400cc expressway rule here in the country made selling these bikes a real challenge for BMW Motorrad Philippines. In fact, during one of our casual talks with BMW executives present during BMW Motorrad Pampanga’s sneak preview a few weeks back, they admitted that they have no plans on bringing in the G 310 RR as of the moment.

What’s the next best thing to BMW’s G 310 RR? The answer is the TVS Apache RR 310.

BMW R 310 RR = Apache RR 310

It’s no secret that BMW Motorrad entered into a partnership with TVS to develop and manufacture the German company’s entry-level motorcycles, like the G 310 R and the G 310 GS.

Like the two models mentioned above, the G 310 RR shares the same engine, chassis, and most of its components with the Apache RR 310. Powering the Apache RR 310 is a 313cc, backward-tilted cylinder engine that churns out 34 Ps and is mated to a six-speed gearbox.

According to TVS, the Apache RR 310's aerodynamic body was achieved using “extensive designing and testing in a state-of-the-art wind tunnel” which then yielded a best-in-class coefficient of drag to achieve maximum downforce, minimum wind blast, and greater top speed.

Other features include an upright TFT screen that resembles a smartphone, riding modes, turn-by-turn navigation connectivity via Bluetooth, bi-LED and twin projector headlights, LED tail lights, ride-by-wire, dual channel ABS, and slipper clutch.

Availability

The Apache RR 310 is now available at Wheeltek and TVS dealerships with an SRP of PHP 230,000.
