TVS Racing Apache RR 310
The race-spec Apache RR 310 draws inspiration from Akula – the supersport motorcycle concept that was globally showcased during the 2016 Auto Expo. The motorcycle has been designed and engineered from the ground up and gets substantial upgrades. It gets the 312cc DOHC four-valve liquid-cooled engine that belts out more power than the street-legal TVS Apache RR 310. The engine uses forged pistons, titanium valves and HLHD Cams, resulting in higher power output.
In-turn, the motorcycle is also equipped with RAM Air Intake system that further increases the top speed. TVS says that with the extensive use of carbon fibre, the race machine has also shed some weight, resulting into faster race times. The motorcycle’s frame and externals are designed to have low drag force for a better top-speed on the track. It is also equipped with Ohlins adjustable and custom-built suspension and rides on Dunlop soft compound radial racing tyres.
