TVS Apache RR 310S Chased by 2017 KTM Duke 390 @ 120+ kmph
A recent report from GaddiWaadi claims that TVS recently registered the Apache RR 310S name for its Akula 310 with the authorities. The name could help them easily differentiate RR from the naked RTR series, further helping them name future products under the same two series, depending on their body type. TVS Apache RR 310S would be a first of its kind product from the Indian manufacturer, carrying premium features and rivaling the Bajaj Dominar in its engine segment.
