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

  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.

TVS Apache RR 310 registered just 132 units in November 2018. The number is lower than the figure posted in every single month of 2018. 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 vs Bajaj Pulsar (Detailed Sales Analysis): Bajaj Pulsar and TVS Apache are the two closest possible rivals in Indian automotive industry. Both have the highest level of trust among all other products above 150cc engine category in India. Locking horns from more than a decade in India, Bajaj Pulsar and TVS Apache now have a long list of products under their lineup. Sales comparison seen here includes multiple products under both Pulsar as well as Apache range.

Bajaj Pulsar RS200

January was a decent month for both Apache and Pulsar series. Pulsar gained significant amount in May and September 2018 while Apache posted the higher ever figure in September. October 2018 was the month with the highest sales for the Pulsar, bringing more than twice the number than Apache. March 2018 saw the closest positioning of both brands with a gap of less than 10,000 units.

Price range for both products varies largely but the majority of sales comes from their 150cc variants. These are considered best for their frugal nature and mileage friendly engines. The Pulsar 150 can be had in Neon, single disc and dual disc variant while Apache 160 comes in both 2-valve and 4-valve option. The Pulsar can also be had in the dual-disc equipped NS160 variant for a comparable price tag to Apache 160 4V.

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.

TVS Apache RR 310 Pros Cons

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.

TVS Apache RR 310 Pros Cons

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.

TVS Apache RR 310 Pros Cons

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.

TVS Apache RTR 200 4V vs Bajaj Pulsar 220F: RTR 200 and 220F are bikes with two different body styles on offer in India. What makes them common? The answer is pricing. Apache RTR 200 costs INR 97,005 while Pulsar 220F comes for INR 98,694. The difference of INR 1689 between both these bikes resulted in this ideal comparison for buyers who are looking for an impressive machine under INR 1.20 lakh (on-road). Both are oil cooled and carry single front as well as a rear disc brake. Pulsar 220F was designed 10 years back but still feels in competition with other semi-faired products.

Ex-Showroom Price List

Apache RTR 200

  • RTR 200 4V: INR 97,005
  • RTR 200 4V Fi: INR 1,09,705
  • RTR 200 4V ABS: INR 1,10,805

Pulsar 220F

  • 220F Dual Disc: INR 98,694
Above mentioned prices are ex-showroom Delhi

TVS Apache RTR 200 Race Edition

Apache RTR 200 comes with typical street bike design with sharp fuel tank cowls and considerably effective windscreen. Pulsar 220F, on the other hand, is aerodynamically better with bigger windscreen and side fairing. Technically, Pulsar 220F uses a 220cc engine producing 20.64 Bhp at 8500 rpm and 18.55 Nm at 7000 rpm. Apache RTR 200 uses a 197.75cc engine producing 20.23 Bhp at 8500 rpm and 18.1 Nm at 7000 rpm. Values are quite close to each other and thus, performance during acceleration test will remain similar. Apache RTR 200 is lighter but Pulsar 220F has a semi-faired design.

In terms of equipment, Pulsar 220F has aged a lot in comparison to Apache. The latter comes with slipper clutch, fully-digital instrument console, split cradle frame, KYB suspension, and petal disc brakes. Apache even comes with an optional 2-channel ABS and fuel injection equipped variant for a bigger price tag while Pulsar 220F comes in a single variant. The console on 220F is aged while the overall design and high-performance engine are only two points that justify its presence. TVS Apache RTR 200 4V is a better option when considering a motorcycle under INR 1.20 lakh (On-Road). But in case you are interested in buying a Bajaj motorcycle in this price range, then getting a Pulsar NS200 would be a better deal in comparison to the 220F.

The TVS Apache RTR 160 4V is the sole bike which you could consider if you are in the market looking for a bike with a 160cc engine for power riding. However, even though it is quite popular, there are some pros and cons which might confuse you whether it is worth the INR 82,810 (ex-showroom Delhi) price that the company is asking for it.

Apache RTR 160 4V Pros & Cons

Pros of Apache RTR 160 4V

1) Design and Build Quality: The Apache RTR 160 4V looks quite similar to its elder sibling, the RTR 200 4V. The tank shrouds add a muscular look to the bike and the naked headlamp goes on to snarl at anyone who crosses its path.

2) Comfort: It is quite a comfortable bike to ride in the city traffics as well on long commutes. The vibration levels on the bike are quite low at cruising speeds. They only filter through the frame over speeds of 80 kmph. The seat is well-cushioned and the seating position allows long commutes without any backaches. The single-seat provides ample room for both the rider and the pillion.

3) Performance: The 159.7cc single-cylinder 4-stroke oil-cooled engine provides the bike with a maximum power of 16.5 hp at 8,000 rpm and a peak torque of 14.8 Nm at 6,500 rpm. There is an option available for a fuel-injected engine as well. Through the 5-speed gearbox, the bike is able to achieve 0-60 kmph time of 4.73 seconds and 0-100 kmph time of 15.9 seconds. The top speed of the bike is 113 kmph. It is quite fuel efficient as well, providing a mileage of around 40-45 kmpl under mixed riding conditions.

4) Features: There is an engine kill switch which allows easy navigation through city traffic jams. Electric start on the bike is a convenience feature that allows easy startup of the bike. There is an all-digital console with several indicators on the instrument cluster.

5) Service Network: TVS has quite a wide network of dealerships and service centres all across India. This allows comfort of mind to the customer, knowing that he could take the bike anywhere across the country and would not face any issues.

6) Affordability: TVS Apache RTR 160 4V has its prices starting at only INR 82,810 (ex-showroom Delhi), making it one of the most affordable bikes in the segment. There is a wide range of colour options available on the bike. For wider tires and rear disc brake, there is a mid-spec model (INR 85,810), while the top model (INR 91,810) comes equipped with a fuel-injected engine.

Cons of Apache RTR 160 4V

1) Lack of ABS: Even in 2018, the bike comes without the option for ABS. This comes as a disappointment since there are options at similar prices that come equipped with ABS.

2) Lack of a 6th gear: Given the performance of the bike, it is a disappointment that the transmission is only limited to 5 gears. The gears are tuned for shorter shifting as well, making it a hurdle while riding in city traffics.

3) Handlebar Positioning: For shorter customers, riding the bike would be quite a challenge. People over 6 feet will have no problem in riding the bike with a straight back. The seat height could have been raised for a more convenient ride.

Reasons to Buy TVS Apache RR 310: TVS launched the much-awaited Apache RR 310 in the Indian market at an introductory price of Rs 2.15 lakh. The brand recently increased this price to Rs 2.23 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). The company revealed the bike for the first time back in 2016, at the Auto Expo as TVS Akula concept.

There was no doubt that the bike would be different from the Akula concept. While the fairing and design have remained unchanged, the company has added additional parts to the bike. People have received the bike well, citing many reasons to buy the bike.

5 Reasons to Buy TVS Apache RR 310

1) Excellent Looks

Akula, in Russian, means Shark, and the bike derives many of its design features forming a shark-like appearance. The design elements of the bike are aerodynamic and proportionate. The aggressive styling of the bike merges with a compact layout, managing to make a perfect bike for someone who does not wish to go too menacing with the RC390 or too soft with the other 200cc and 250cc bikes available in the market.

The front end of the bike sports bi-LED Projector headlamps, which remain switched on the whole time the ignition is on. Looking at the bike from both sides, you will notice that there is a certain symmetry to the bike which looks appealing to the eyes. The overall design of the bike is enough to make sure that anyone will fall in love with it at first sight.

2) Powerful Engine

The RR 310 has the most powerful engine made for the Apache lineup till date. It is a 312.2cc four-stroke four-valve single-cylinder reverse-inclined unit that churns out maximum power of 34 HP at 9700 rpm and a peak torque figure of 27.2 Nm at 7700 rpm.

The engine is mated with a six-speed gearbox that gives the bike a mileage of around 25-30 kmpl. It is the same engine as the BMW G310R and produces the same power and torque as well. For real-world applications, this engine has been tested on the bike and it takes only 2.93 seconds to reach 60 kmph from rest and 7.17 seconds to reach 100 kmph from standstill.

3) Informative Console

The instrument panel on the Apache RR 310 follows a vertical layout rather than a conventional horizontal cluster. This makes things on the instrument cluster easier to read while riding. A vertical layout has been used on adventure and rally bikes to convey the information to the rider on the go. On the top of the panel, the range is displayed, below which the current speed of the bike is shown to the rider.

There is the odometer below that and a digital clock, displaying the current time. The fuel gauge and the engine temperature find their niche below the clock. The right side of the panel is completely owned by the tachometer, showing the RPM of the engine in the bike in a crisp manner. The gear indicator finds its place right on the lower side of the panel, with the gear-shift indicator and other tell-tale signals around the panel.

4) Safety Features

In its basic form, the RR 310 is a track bike. It inherits many features from TVS Motors’ 35 years of racing history. Michelin Pilot Street tires come as standard on the bike; they are extra sticky for track performance.

Also standard on the bike, the ABS, dual-channel from Continental, provides extra safety and stability while braking. The suspension from Kayaba is also tuned to suit the needs of the track; the front sporting USD forks while the rear equipped with a monoshock. TVS is also planning to launch a slipper clutch variant of RR 310 in coming months.

5) Solid Build Quality

The parts and components used on the RR 310 are made out of good quality materials and the bike shares many similarities with the BMW G310R as well, ensuring that there are no complaints regarding the materials used on the bike. The trellis frame used on both the bikes is identical, with the TVS making slight tweaks to the rear sub-frame of the bike to better suit its needs.
