This will be the third update to the TVS Apache RR310 since its launch in 2017. TVS was to bring in the refreshed offering earlier in April, but the COVID-19 related lockdown forced it to reschedule the launch.
Earlier this year in April, TVS sent us an invite for the launch of the 2021 Apache RR310. The Hosur-based bike maker, however, was forced to cancel the event due to the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, the brand is once again gearing up for the launch.
TVS has been constantly updating the RR310 ever since its launch in 2017. The fully-faired offering got its first update in May 2019, which was quickly followed by another refresh in January 2020. This, then, will be the third time the Apache RR310 gets an update.
So, what can we expect from the 2021 RR310? Going by the invite that TVS sent us in April, it's safe to expect that the RR310 will get upgraded suspension components. Currently, the Apache RTR 200 4V already gets preload-adjustable front forks. With the RR310 being the flagship offering, TVS is likely to introduce the adjustable suspension in this one too. Moreover, the invitation sent in April had an image of the motorcycle with most components wiped out, except for the suspension. TVS has just brought in the Ntorq 125 Race XP, with marginally more power and torque than before. The 2021 RR310 could also get a mildly tweaked engine, which promises better performance.
The Apache RR310 already comes fitted with LED lighting and an all-digital instrument cluster with Bluetooth connectivity. The TVS flagship also already gets four riding modes, throttle by wire, Slipper clutch, race telemetry, navigation assist, and more.
Currently, the TVS Apache RR310 is priced at Rs 2.55 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). Expect the updated 2021 model to demand Rs 5,000 – 10,000 more.
