The 2020 TVS Apache RR 310 is now priced at Rs 2.45 lakh (ex-showroom), which makes it Rs 5,000 dearer than its launch price from January, earlier this year.
The TVS Apache RR 310 is one of our favourite motorcycles in the country since its launch in 2017. In fact, the latest BS6 version of the motorcycle, which was launched in January 2020, has made this fully-faired TVS flagship even better. So much so that we believe it to be the best in its segment. Now one of the reasons why we love the RR 310 is that it’s priced really well, and offers a lot of bang for your buck. The 2020 BS6 version that was launched this year was priced at Rs 2.40 lakh (ex-showroom), which was around Rs 12,000 more than the outgoing BS4 version. However, now, TVS has decided to hike the price of the RR 310 by a further Rs 5,000, meaning it now has a sticker price of Rs 2.45 lakh (ex-showroom).
Of course, the increase in price – especially given the current situation – isn’t good news for prospective buyers. But that said, the 2020 Apache RR 310 is still a great package. Compared to the old version, the new motorcycles is miles better – be it in terms of engine refinement or features and equipment on offer – the Apache RR 310 BS6 is a very well rounded product.
Apart from a higher price tag, the BS6 version of the Apache RR 310 is unchanged. And that’s no bad news because the latest version already comes packed to the brim with new features. In the BS6 version, the motorcycle had received a ride-by-wire throttle, four different riding modes, a new full-colour display, new Michelin Road 5 tyres and a new dual-tone paint job. The bike also comes fitted with full LED projector lamps, dual-channel ABS and a slipper clutch. The engine is the same reverse inclined 312cc single-cylinder unit that churns out 33.5bhp and 27.3Nm. It’s mated to a six-speed gearbox.
With the updated price, the difference between the Apache RR 310 and its main rival, the KTM RC390, has now come down to Rs 8,000 – the RC390 is priced at Rs 2.53 lakh (ex-showroom). The KTM is more powerful and it’s quite well-equipped too. However, it’s racier and a more focused machine, whereas the Apache RR 310 is a do-it-all fully-faired motorcycle.
