The RR 310 was with Arup for the last couple of weeks. And although he complained a lot about the vibrations from the motorcycle, surprisingly, he wasn’t letting it go. I have a feeling that he was secretly enjoying the ride. Anyway, while he was out testing some vehicle one day, I sneakily nicked the motorcycle from our office parking lot. And that, I believe, kind of explains that I missed riding the TVS Apache RR 310. In fact, I’d go as far as to say that I am slowly warming up to its vast range of capabilities.
Like mentioned in my previous report, the RR 310 is a very comfortable motorcycle to trundle around in town, despite its sporty character. I can’t stress on how efficiently it clubs the performance of a sports bike with a motorcycle that can be ridden every day. That said, it does have a good deal of room for improvement. Last month, I found that the brakes had lost some of their bite – they felt soft and spongy. The fact that ABS kicks in a little too early doesn’t help the case either. I also think that a stickier pair of tyres will improve braking performance. The stock Michelins are good, no doubt, but they tend to squirm and give up under hard braking. That aside, the service indicator light is also blinking now, so a visit to the service centre is due.
