TVS Apache RTR 310 Design

There's no denying the fact that the TVS Apache RTR 310 looks sharp and sporty with its bold streetfighter design. It oozes premium appeal and has that stance which looks fast even when standing still. 


TVS Apache RTR 310 TFT Connected Instrument Console


The new 5-inch, full-colour TFT instrument console not just offers Bluetooth connectivity, but GoPro controls as well, and is intuitive and easy to use. There are five ride modes in all, Urban, Touring, Sport, Track and a Supermoto mode, in which rear wheel ABS can be turned off. 


TVS Apache RTR 310 Electronics & Riding Aids


The feature list is long, with standard dual-channel ABS and traction control as well, as a safety net. For the higher variants, there’s a bi-directional quickshifter, and under the Built to Order (BTO) custom program, there’s more kit available, including fully adjustable suspension in the Dynamic Kit and a tyre pressure monitoring system. Additional lean-sensitive riding aids, as well as features like wheelie control, stoppie control, and slope dependent control are available in the Dynamic Pro kit.

TVS Apache RTR 310 Acceleration

The 312.12 cc, single-cylinder engine is shared with the TVS Apache RR 310, but it sounds slightly different.  In numbers, TVS claims a segment-best 0 to 60 kmph acceleration time of just 2.81 seconds, which is said to be fastest in its segment, and faster than even the RR 310. The reason is a bigger 46-tooth rear sprocket which gives the RTR 310 better initial acceleration than the RR 310, which comes with a 42-teeth rear sprocket. But the intake, airbox and exhaust internals are also different on the RTR 310, as is the fuelling calibration, which results in a 1.6 bhp increase in maximum power and 1.4 Nm hike in peak power. 


TVS Apache RTR 310 Performance


The Apache RTR 310 will cruise happily at 120-130 kmph, but you will feel some buzz from the engine from around 6,500 rpm till about 7,500 rpm, beyond which the buzz kind of tapers away. And at those revs, in sixth gear, you will be at speeds of between 95-110 kmph, when you will feel some vibes on the fuel tank, seat and pegs.


TVS Apache RTR 310 Dynamics

Where the Apache RTR 310 definitely impresses is in its dynamics. Around the tight track at the Thailand Circuit Motorsport Complex, the RTR 310 demonstrated a level of flickability and playfulness that is instantly likeable. Whether it’s hard braking, left to right transitions or pushing around a tight corner, the TVS Apache RTR 310 offers a level of surefooted-ness that is quite impressive.


TVS Apache RTR 310 Ride & Braking Performance



The brakes work well and offer sure shot stopping power, and the lean-sensitive ABS and traction control offered us the confidence of electronic nannies always having our back. The climate-controlled seat offers cooling which is a novelty and quite useful in the hot and humid riding conditions.
