TVS Apache RR 310
As soon as the Ed arrived from the first ride of the new TVS Apache RR 310 with words of praise for the latest from the Chennai-based bikemakers, I’ve been looking forward to getting my hands on it. Now that I have ridden it for a couple of weeks around town, using it as my primary means of commute to and from work, I can allay a few fears for anyone who’s planning to buy it. No, the riding position isn’t too committed for a city commute. It is forward-biased, but not uncomfortably so. No, your legs won’t get cooked in stop-start traffic; the innovative heat management system makes sure of that. No, it does not vibrate too much and the vibes don’t feel intrusive until you touch the upper reaches of the bike’s rev-range. The mirrors stick out a tad wide, something you have to be careful of during those tight manoeuvres through traffic. Apart from that, no complaints so far.
