2019 TVS Apache RR 310 with Race Tuned Slipper Clutch (RTSC) has been launched in India for INR 2.27 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). The equipment will help riders enjoy easy upshifts in an effortless manner. Not just that, the most beneficial effect of the slipper clutch is experienced once the rider downshifts during cornering on the track. The RT Slipper Clutch is also available as an official accessory for the existing RR 310 owners.
As most everyday roads don’t have such curves and corners, the rider will be more focused towards easy shifting while riding in the city. The motorcycle is now available in 2 colours: Racing Red and an all-new Phantom Black shade. The new colour option is basically a high-gloss Black option that was missing at the time of the initial launch of Apache RR 310 in India.
TVS has not tuned the engine for more output as the 312cc, single cylinder engine is good for 34 HP. The dual-channel ABS and braking system remains untouched, leaving just the option of a single variant for the flagship model. TVS Motor also delivered the first race-tuned Apache RR 310 to Mahendra Singh Dhoni at the launch event.
The only visible difference on the 2019 model is seen through the RT Slipper Clutch sticker on the lowermost body panel. The gloss black alloy wheels, rear seat grab rail and exhaust design of the model are totally identical. TVS is planning to add more riders to the family through their component addition plan for the Apache RR 310.
Commenting on the launch, K N Radhakrishnan, director and CEO, TVS Motor Company said: “We are excited to introduce the Race Tuned (RT) slipper clutch on the TVS Apache RR 310 and I am confident that our existing and new customers will appreciate this performance upgrade. The super-premium motorcycle, which is seen as an ultimate track weapon, originates from our racing pedigree and boasts of industry-first features. Equipping it with this technology is a natural progression for the bike. We also want to expand this experience to our existing TVS Apache RR 310 customers, who will appreciate the enhanced racing dynamics. The new styling upgrades accentuate the racing stance of the motorcycle and create customer delight.”
