The RR310 gets kayaba discs at both the front and rear. With a 300mm radially mounted disc at the front and a 240mm disc at the rear. The suspension on the Apache RR310 is handled by upside down forks at the front with a mono-shock at the rear also from Kayaba.
Thoughts On The TVS Apache RR310 Price Hike
The Apache RR310 competes with rivals such as the KTM RC390, Benelli 302R and the Bajaj Dominar 400. With the increase in prices of the RR310 and a long waiting time of six months for the motorcycle, it will be interesting to watch how the company manages to beat the stiff competition in terms of sales numbers.
