TVS Apache RR310 registered 72% YoY sales drop in March 2019. The flagship sportbike from the Indian brand registered 279 units in the 31-day period, leaving the decent 983 units sales number from March 2018 in favour of a continuous downfall that started with a jump in pricing. The 2019 variant of Apache RR310 costs INR 2,24,348 for Delhi (ex-showroom) while the buyers in Kerala can have the same motorcycle for INR 2,05,348 (ex-showroom).

The lowest available price for RR310 is still higher than the expectations of an average Indian buyer as Bajaj Auto offers a much more powerful Dominar (40HP and 35 Nm) for INR 1,73,870. As the latter comes without a full-faired design, any tag under the INR 2 lakh limit would have changed the fate of TVS Apache RR310 in India.

The market is highly competitive and buyers definitely consider value for money once the initial hype for a product goes down with time. After more than one year of existence, the flagship racer is yet to deliver numbers that TVS forecasted for the RR310. Undoubtedly, a product carrying very high potential is being left behind.

TVS Apache RR 310 registered just 246 units in February 2019. The downfall in sales was seen in every motorcycle above the 150cc segment, with Apache RR 310 being one of the worst hit products with loads of potential and such low response from the buyers. The biggest point of worry for TVS is that RR 310 never touched the four-digit sales number, even when it was priced at a much lower point in several states. The rise in price for the flagship motorcycle is one big reason for this sales drop.

The buyers in Kerala can have the Apache RR 310 for INR 1,99,999 while those in Delhi will need to spend INR 2,23,070. Both prices are ex-showroom. Being India’s third largest brand by sales volume, TVS should have kept the pricing under INR 2 lakh for the first year of existence. The most powerful Apache of all time, RR 310 is using a 312cc engine, producing 34 HP of maximum power. It rivals KTM RC 390, Kawasaki Ninja 300 and Yamaha R3 in its segment. The latter two are twin-cylinder motorcycles with much higher price tag and excess of overall output.

TVS Apache RR 310 vs KTM RC 390: TVS Apache RR 310 is a perfect rival to KTM RC 390. Putting these two bikes closer in terms of price has started an all-new segment competition in India. Apache RR 310 is priced @ INR 2.23 lakh and KTM RC 390 is available for INR 2.41 Lakh. Both prices are ex-showroom Delhi. Based on the Akula Concept from 2016 Auto Expo, Apache RR 310 has few factors that can bring buyers into the TVS section. Here is a detailed comparison of the Apache RR 310 and performance veteran KTM RC 390.

TVS Apache RR 310 vs KTM RC 390

# Looks & Style – It’s hard to say anything on this as different people have different views on beauty and appreciation. Still, TVS has made something that looks world class and leaves no stone unturned in the beauty department. KTM RC 390 has started showing its age in front of other machines. It still has the perfectly finished side fairing but looking at both the bikes together will fetch some points for the new Apache RR 310. Apart from its exhaust, TVS Apache RR 310 has no complaining point at all.

# Engine & Performance – Sorry TVS fans but the KTM RC 390 is more powerful in every aspect of riding. Messing with the Orange rider is not an easy task in India as KTM’s powerful 373.2cc engine comes with ride by wire for smoothest possible throttle response. It is good for 43.5 HP and 36 Nm of torque. TVS Apache RR 310, on the other hand, offers just 34 HP and 27.3 Nm of torque. KTM even adds a slipper clutch for best ever downshifts. Top speed of KTM RC 390 is 179 kph while RR 310 gets a maximum value of 160 kph.

# Instrument Console – KTM RC 390 has an informative console but its reddish-orange back-light is not what everybody admires. TVS Apache RR 310 comes to rescue here as buyers will get a vertically placed, white back-lit console that offers better readability. It even comes with the most accurate digital fuel gauge. TVS surely wins this part with its new and very informative console.

# Dimensions & Weight – Apache RR 310 weighs 169.5 kg while KTM RC 390 is just 0.5 kg more at 170 kg. Both the models have a smaller than usual fuel tank and even flaunt practically equal (although 1.5mm more on RR 310) ground clearance. Riders sit slightly lower @ 810mm on the Apache RR 310 (which is 10 mm lower than RC 390).

# Brakes & Suspension – Brakes on both the bikes are assisted with dual channel ABS. KTM RC 390 has a slightly bigger front brake while Apache RR 310 gets a bigger rear disc brake. Suspension components on the KTM RC 390 are sourced from WP while TVS offers Kayaba shocks at both the ends. Tyres are of the same size on both bikes, 110/70-17 (Front) and 150/60-17 (Rear), supplied by Michelin on the Apache RR and Metzeler on the RC 390.

# Price & Value For Money – KTM RC 390 is priced @ INR 2.41 lakh and RR 310 is available for INR 2.23 Lakh (Ex-showroom). It would have been better if TVS priced Apache RR 310 at around INR 1.80 lakh while KTM has added class leading features like ride by wire and slipper clutch to justify the pricing. All in all, both look well placed when compared to twin cylinder same capacity machines.

Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) is one very important safety feature for motorcycles in India. It does not just help one avoid tire skidding in emergency braking but also makes it easy for riders to brake on wet roads. Only a limited number of ABS Bikes in India are under INR 2.50 lakh (ex-showroom) while most bikes above this segment are equipped with ABS as standard.

It is not yet known why brands keep single-channel ABS on bikes as the difference in price is just INR 2000 for the unit seen on NS200 and that on the Dominar 400. Suzuki offers the most value for money bikes with ABS as they charge just INR 7000 (approx) for the feature.

In case of single-channel ABS, only the front wheel comes with ABS-equipped brake while dual-channel ABS offers the same on both brakes. TVS is the only brand in India which offers 2-channel ABS under INR 1 lakh in its Apache RTR 180.

If you own a TVS Apache RR 310, the motorcycle is being upgraded for free at your nearest dealership. The first of its kind initiative by the Indian brand makes sure that the performance quotient of your motorcycle stays fresh and high at all times. The update could have been pushed in the form of 2019 variant of the motorcycle, but the brand has considered the equal need of the same for existing owners too. The most happening supersport category lightweight racer will get a long list of upgrades for free, leaving the buyers with better overall performance for their motorcycle. The dealers are notifying the owners about these complimentary upgrades through SMS.

If the number that you had registered with the dealership is no more operational, calling the place and getting an appointment is the best idea. TVS is offering an ECU upgrade for better performance, a new visor cover with better aerodynamic ability, chain-roller replacement and even heavier bar-end weights for the motorcycle. The owners who won’t be able to reach the dealer at a short notice can get these changes done at the time of the service. Still, getting the updates as early as possible will help you explain the changes at the time of service that are required to extract more performance from the race machine.

TVS Apache RR 310 didn’t sell in huge numbers as the brand expected because of the high ex-showroom price and limited availability. The price tag of INR 2.23 lakh restricted the number of buyers by a huge extent. However, in comparison to the RR310, BMW placed the products with similar underpinnings at a much higher price tag. The motorcycle is available in Racing Red and Racing Black shades in stock condition and can be upgraded like the one (Custom Akula 310) wrapped by Knight Auto Customizer with pure white body finish.

Honda CBR300R vs TVS Apache RR 310: Entry of Apache RR 310 reminded us of a neat motorcycle that could have welcomed the flagship sprinter from TVS in an even better way. Comparing the same would have become easier for fans as most of them are shocked to feel the closeness of price tags on both the bikes. Yes, you are guessing in the right direction. It’s Honda and definitely none other than CBR300R.

The successor to CBR250R (which is now available with updated LED headlight and new shades) in most markets, Honda CBR300R is smart, good looking and inspired from the litre-class 2016 CBR1000RR Fireblade. Chances for its arrival were an all-time high for Auto Expo in February 2018 but, Honda again went for the CBR250R.

Honda should have launched CBR300R in India instead of relaunching the CBR250R. The 2019 model of CBR300R is a better and worthy rival to the Apache RR 310. This is how it feels like comparing both bikes side by side.

Honda CBR300R vs TVS Apache RR 310

# Engine – TVS Apache RR 310 is powered by a 312.2cc, single cylinder engine that loads fuel injection and liquid cooling. The engine is good for 34 HP at 9700 rpm and 27.2 Nm at 7700 rpm. Honda CBR300R uses a 286cc engine, producing 30.4 HP at 8500 rpm and 27.1 Nm at 7250 rpm. Buyers get more power in Apache but CBR300R delivers the power at a lower rpm. Decision making gets easier for high and low rev loving fans.

# Dimensions – Honda CBR300R measures 2035 mm in length, 720 mm in width and 1120 mm in height. It offers 145 mm of ground clearance and 785 mm of low seat height. Wet weight tips the scale at 164 kg. A 13-litre fuel tank is on offer. TVS Apache RR 310 measures 2001 mm in length, 786 mm in width and 1135 mm in height. Seat height is 810mm while ground clearance on offer comes out to be 180 mm. It weighs 169.5 kg and offers 11 liters of fuel tank capacity.

Length and height are practically the same but CBR300R shows it lean profile through much lesser width and low weight. It even carries 2 liters of more fuel for a better overall range. Apache may not be as fit for short riders as CBR300R. Still, 180mm of ground clearance by Apache is miraculous for Indian roads and riders.

# Features – Both the bikes are equipped with ABS. Both carry a dual headlight front fascia with slipper clutch missing from both the 6-speed gearboxes. Use of LED lights on the Apache at both front and rear saves energy and improves visibility. CBR300R may get an update for lights before its official launch. Both the bikes are offered with front and rear disc brake. TVS wins the game with USD front forks in comparison to the conventional telescopic ones on CBR.

# Design – Fireblade lovers know the importance of this design of Honda CBR300R. It is highly aerodynamic and looks ageless in all aspects. The long exhaust looks proportional and well designed for a bike of this size. The fairing is neat and the fuel tank looks almost similar to India spec CBR250R. TVS Apache, on the other hand, feels more dynamic and looks race ready at all times. The huge exhaust looks out of proportion from some angles. Golden USD forks further enhance its character in front of CBR300R.

# Console – TVS wins the console game without even trying to battle. The all-digital console is very informative and comes with loads of features. Honda CBR300R uses the same instrument console as India spec CBR250R. It looks good but does not feel as premium as the one used on Apache RR 310. If CBR300R comes to India this year, they would price it higher and share the console with CB300R.

# Price – TVS Apache RR 310 was launched in India @ INR 2.05 Lakh (Ex-showroom Tamil Nadu). At present, it is priced at INR 2.23 Lakh in most of the states in India. If Honda launches the CBR300R sportbike in India, it would be priced somewhere over INR 2.50 lakh mark as CB300R costs INR 2.41 lakh (Ex-showroom Delhi).

Apache RR 310 Sales Report (2018): RR 310 is the smartest fully-faired motorcycle that one can buy around INR 2.70 lakh (on-road) in India. The charm for this impressive model lasted for a short time as TVS is seen struggling with a much smaller sales number than their initial expectations. They had a yearly target of 10,000 units for the motorcycle but, actual retail figures show that only 5297 units moved out of the dealerships in the year 2018. Here is the sales report of RR 310 for the 12-month period.

Apache RR 310 Sales Report

  1. January 2018 – 242 units
  2. February 2018 – 353 units
  3. March 2018 – 983 units (maximum)
  4. April 2018 – 862 units
  5. May 2018 – 595 units
  6. June 2018 – 476 units
  7. July 2018 – 351 units
  8. August 2018 – 343 units
  9. September 2018 – 350 units
  10. October 2018 – 425 units
  11. November 2018 – 132 units (minimum)
  12. December 2018 – 185 units

In the start, they had cleared the fact that they are not running behind big numbers in any case. But now, the situation is different as they have felt the heat by staying closer to the KTM 390 series in this price segment. A four-digit sales number is perfectly possible for Apache RR 310 but, they have to convince a certain number of Bajaj Dominar and Royal Enfield buyers to join their league by offering some mouth-watering finance options. On the other side, they need to take care of Ninja 300 buyers, who can pose a threat to Apache if they offer some exciting options. Kawasaki recently dropped the price of Ninja 300 in India by INR 62,000.

Apache RR310 is available for INR 2.23 lakh (ex-showroom), making it more expensive than the CBR250R ABS by INR 30,000. The number of buyers going for the CBR250R could have been on the TVS side if they have missed the price hike of INR 8000 for their flagship product. TVS didn’t even work on increasing the exclusive RR 310 dealerships in 2018. The motorcycle is available with a perfect list of equipment, including those modern bi-LED lights, USD forks, impressive instrument console and dual-channel ABS.

TVS Akula turned into the Apache RR 310 production motorcycle for the Indian buyers in December 2017. Still, the popularity of the moniker and shark-inspired design lines of the motorcycle helped Knight Auto Customizer pick this name for their brilliantly-finished Apache. The TVS Akula seen here comes with satin pearl white body finish with gloss flash red alloy wheels. Not just that, the important parts that were left black by the brand are now finished in carbon-fiber texture. Notable differences are seen on the exhaust, console section, and headlight area.

The exhaust now flaunts black base shade with carbon fiber finish on the chrome parts. The front section earlier had black air ducts while TVS Akula flaunts the same in satin pearl white for a premium look. The visor is wrapped in the black shade while brake and clutch levers have been replaced with adjustable, red-finished levers for precise adjustments. The fuel tank now comes with knee grips and tank pad for additional functionality and styling. Knight Auto Customizer has used the shark-inspired Akula moniker on the side fairing and BMW Motorrad moniker on the lower edge.

The golden upside down forks, red alloy wheels and additional stripe running through the body make this TVS Akula look exceptionally sporty. TVS Apache RR 310 is powered by a 312cc, liquid cooled and fuel injected engine. The overall output is healthy at 34 HP. When seen with an ex-showroom price tag of INR 1,99,999 in Kerala, RR 310 feels like the most value for money sportbike. However, the ex-showroom Delhi price of INR 2,23,075 ruins the feel and places the Apache right against KTM RC 390. The rival is good for 43.5 HP of max output.

KTM RC 200 vs Apache RR 310 vs RC 390:  These 3 sportbikes make a perfect high-end trio for the Indian performance section. KTM RC 200 is a powerful option but lacks the availability of ABS in this segment. It comes with MRF tyres as standard.

On the other hand, Apache RR 310 offers premium options like Bi-LED projectors, USD forks, Michelin pilot tyres and dual-channel ABS. It comes with a bigger 312.2cc, single cylinder engine. The sportbike has impressive looks and wins in the visual satisfaction department.

KTM RC 390 is the most powerful option here with 373.2cc, single cylinder engine producing 43.5 HP and 36 Nm of torque. The engine comes with the highest level of technology in its class, offering ride by wire, dual channel ABS, slipper clutch and much more as standard. RC 390 is extremely loaded and thus, comes as a winner when seen from the performance front.

One of the most celebrated sportbikes, Apache RR 310 is available in India for INR 2.23 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). The only bike that directly rivals KTM RC 390 in the under INR 2.50 lakh segment, Apache RR 310 looks great from every possible angle. Is it something born without a limitation? Let’s find this out! Here is the complete list of pros and cons of the TVS Apache RR 310.

TVS Apache RR 310 Pros & Cons

Pros of RR 310

1) Impressive Design

TVS has worked hard on choosing the final design and Apache RR 310 is undoubtedly the best-looking motorcycle from the manufacturer. A typical sportbike design is blended along with decently comfortable riding position for maximum fun. Apache RR 310 is the production model based on the Akula 310 concept motorcycle showcased at the Auto Expo 2016.

TVS Apache RR 310 Pros Cons

2) Powerful Engine

Apache RR 310 is powered by a 312.2cc, liquid cooled and fuel injected engine producing 34 HP at 9700 rpm and 27.3 Nm at 7700 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox. This results in 0-100 kmph time of just 7.17 seconds and a claimed top speed of 160 kmph.

3) Bi-LED Headlight

No more fear of night riding in Apache guys. RR 310 is offered with Bi-LED projector headlights, that too working together in low and high beam (unlike others with one for each beam). It looks premium and works well for all weather conditions.

TVS Apache RR 310 Pros Cons

4) Informative Instrument Console

TVS Apache RR 310 comes with a vertically placed console that is clear to read and offers features like gear indicator, digital clock, vertical tachometer, side stand indicator, lap timer, overall range and much more.

TVS Apache RR 310 Pros Cons

5) Standard 2-Channel ABS

Apache RR 310 comes with dual channel ABS as standard. The front 300mm and rear 240mm disc brake get enough bite to shred triple-digit speeds. ABS also helps the rider on rough surfaces and odd-road conditions.

6) USD Kayaba Forks

Selected motorcycles in India are offered with sporty USD forks and TVS Apache RR 310 is one of them. Sourced from Kayaba, the forks are 41 mm in diameter and offer crisp track performance for the newly launched sports bike.

TVS Apache RR 310 Pros Cons

7) Michelin Tyres

Most fans were expecting a new set of TVS tyres, specially designed for the Apache RR 310 in India. To everyone’s surprise, Apache RR 310 is equipped with sticky Michelin Pilot tyres (110/70 and 150/60) for better track and highway performance.

Cons of TVS Apache RR 310

1) High Price Tag

Apache RR 310 was expected to be priced around INR 1.75 Lakh by most fans, keeping in mind that Mojo offered a lot more (Pirelli tyres, dual exhaust), except ABS. The pricing is surely on the higher side, forcing many to rethink their desire of owning one. It would have been better if TVS priced it aggressively to make sure that the price doesn’t cross INR 2 Lakh mark on-road.

2) Limited Shades

Racing Black and Racing Red are the only two shades available on Apache RR 310. Fans were expecting a wide range of shades like younger Apache siblings (Yellow, Matte Red, Gloss Black, White etc).

TVS Apache RR 310 Pros Cons

3) Low Fuel Tank Capacity

Just 11 litre of fuel carrying capacity is a major drawback of Apache RR 310. Believe it or not, buyers will have to visit a fuel station after 275-300 kilometres of continuous riding. City riding in heavy traffic will even take the figure down considerably.
