Sales Report (April 2018)

  • RC 390 + Duke 390: 800 Units
  • Apache RR 310: 862 Units

Waiting periods vary by state to state as few dealers are quoting 15 day delivery period while others expect buyers to wait for good six months before the motorcycle arrives for delivery.

TVS could have made things better by doubling up their production capacity as this would have helped them keep both cost and delivery under check. The Akula based sports bike uses a 312.2cc, single cylinder engine producing 34 HP and 27.2 Nm. KTM duo is more powerful for sure but it seems like buyers want something interesting in India.

Apache RR 310 is priced at INR 2.23 lakh. In comparison, KTM 390 Duke comes at INR 2.39 while RC390 is placed at INR 2.36 lakh. All prices are ex-showroom Delhi.
