Indian two-wheeler manufacturer TVS has been testing its first fully faired motorcycle, the Apache RR 310S for quite some time. But there is no official confirmation about the launch date.
Now, Motoroids has spotted the Apache RR 310S which was on a test. The motorcycle was finished in a matte black colour scheme. By looking at the spy shots, we can say that it is a production ready model wearing a camouflaged livery.
Another report from Overdrive states that TVS will launch the Apache RR 310S in the Indian market by the end of 2017, which is likely to be in November after the festive season.
The TVS Apache RR 310 S is based on the BMW G 310 R and shares few vital components such as engine, forks, brakes, frame and controls. But TVS has tuned the engine differently to suit the Indian road condition.
The faired motorcycle from TVS draws power from a 310cc single cylinder, liquid-cooled engine producing 34bhp and 28Nm of torque. The engine is coupled to a 6-speed gearbox.
The Apache RR 310S features dual projector headlamps, split seats, vertically stacked digital instrument cluster, upside down forks up front and monoshock suspension setup at the rear. TVS is likely to offer ABS at least as an option.
The Apache RR 310S will be the first fully faired motorcycle from TVS in India. The motorcycle has been spotted several times, and the riding position is upright which is good for city riding as well as long distance touring. Once launched in India, the motorcycle will rival the likes of KTM RC390, Benelli 302R, Kawasaki Ninja 300 and the Yamaha YZF-R3.
