I was mentioning ex showroom. Currently it is 3.6 ex showroom, whereas RR310 is at 2.25L whereas RC390 is at 2.36L.

My bad then, but if I have a choice and I can buy a ninja with abs with 75k premium, I will prefer ninja over rr.

I think everyone would be much more happier and less stressed out buying just about any other bike in similar budget available including the Cbr250r, Dominar, RC wins, etc. Yes, even the infamous Bajaj's don't have these many issues. Just my two cents.
This is a bike which is being operated by a Rental company, it has already clocked 17.5K kms in 4 months and still running absolutely butter smooth. The bike would have seen varying ride styles and probably abused a bit too. TVS atleast lives upto the billing of producing a reliable bike.

I had the opportunity to visit the BMW/RR310 machining and assembly lines at the TVS factory in Hosur recently. The company seems to have benefitted immensely from the partnership. The assembly line in particular is very modern in terms of equipment.

What surprises me is the recurring reliability issue either with the brake pedal or some other component. TVS supposedly invests a lot of time and money to improve reliability but these issues, especially on a bike that is supposed to derive design cues from Germany, indicate that it may be a local manufacturing or supplier issue that TVS is grappling with.

Akrapovic exhaust launched for 310 @ 55k, seems to be on expensive side it does add up 2.4 hp and 2.7 nm torque.
