Focusing on the motorcycle, the Apache RTE looks to be an adaptation of the RR 310 One Make Championship race bike from the company when it comes to design. The fairing though is larger and a lot smoother in a bid to reduce drag and improve aerodynamics. TVS says that the fairing, as well as the wheels, are made wholly of carbon fibre.

Moving to the specifications, TVS says that the motorcycle features a carbon fibre battery case that is a stressed member of the chassis. It features a mid-mounted liquid-cooled electric motor with power sent to the wheel via a chain drive. TVS has not revealed any output figures at this time though it claims that the race bike uses high-power cells with advanced chemistry in the battery pack and a custom Battery Management System with race-specific algorithms for “advanced configuration controls and high levels of safety.”
