The TVS Apache RR 310 is launched!

It’s here (kind of) and it paves the way for a BMW mini-Su­per­bike. How very cool.

Motorcycle Monthly - - News -

For the best part of two years we’ve been show­ing you the de­vel­op­ment of the TVS Apache (which has been de­vel­oped in part­ner­ship with BMW – so this is also the BMW S310RR mini-Su­per­bike).

And now the bike is here. Mak­ing 34bhp @ 9700rpm and 27.3Nm @ 7700rpm, the bike is pow­ered by the four-stroke, four-valve sin­gle-cylin­der, liq­uid-cooled which has a 10.9:1 com­pres­sion ra­tio.

The gor­geous small bike is just 170kg (wet) and comes com­plete with ABS, an LCD dash, LED lights, ByBre (Brembo) brakes and KYB sus­pen­sion.

We’re loving it. And for any of you that aren’t loving it, then imag­ine this bike with a BMW S1000RR colour scheme.

As far as price goes, well, TVS is sell­ing the bike in In­dia for 2.05 lakh ru­pees which con­verts to an eye­open­ing £2317. Yep, that cheap.

Of course, by the time this bike gets a BMW badge on it and is im­ported to the UK, it’s not go­ing to be that cheap – but if we look at the price of the Ger­man firm’s G310 GS which is from £5100 and fac­tor in the grow­ing mar­ket of mini-GSX-Rs and Nin­jas then fig­ure on this BMW miniSu­per­bike be­ing in the £4500-£5000 bracket on cost.
