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.
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.
