The vibes go away after the 120 km/hr mark, which is a bit surprising.
Thanks for the great review FURY bro.
Is the issue faced only by you or the co-owners as well?
I am asking this because I also faced this issue of vibrations on my RTR 160 while driving in the range of 80-100 kmph and vanishes once I cross the 100 mark. Here I could just see a shift of range of speed.
I have discussed with TVS technician but he could not help me with a solution.
This is something TVS should be seriously looked into.

Thank you BANDHAV, the bike is a beauty especially in full black. The red one looks like a mini Ducati on road and we ourselves have confused it with a Panigale by looking at the headlight from a distance, while waiting for riders to join during a group ride Such is the resemblance of this bike.

If I were in market for this the only thing holding me back would be the RE Interceptor, that additional cylinder at a marginal incremental cost is just too hard to ignore.
RE has made life really hard for the bikes in price range between 2-3L, both the twins are VFM products. It gets really confusing when you bring a sports tourer into the picture. I would suggest you to rent out both the products for a long ride and test it out yourselves. If I were in your shoes I would pick the RR over the RE twins just for the new technology it brings to the table.

Thank you coolmind, the issue is generally faced by most of the owners and the vibrations are not at alarming levels. It is just a mild buzz you feel on the handle bar, seat and foot pegs from 100 - 120km/hr. I have eventually gotten used to the vibrations.

TVS and vibrations is a match made in heaven,hahah.

Congratulations on your new bike. Its a good thing that you have planned to shift to using synthetic oil on your bike. I would suggest you to source the oil, oil filter and chain sprays online and get them done at a road side mechanic. It will be cheaper and safer too. I have experienced too much pilfering and improper oil changes at the Authorized service centers of all the brands I have purchased from.

Thank you for the wishes COMMUTER, TVS has only recommended the mineral oil from Motul which is available at the SVC. Due to this being the warranty period, no other oil can be changed from an outside mechanic shop. TVS has now released a Tru4 FS oil, especially manufactured for the RR310, which is not yet available at the SVC. The FS Tru4 oil from TVS comes as default in the 2019 Mfr bikes according to the information I have received.

So the first of the ECU update is here, to clear the bugs/errors present in the system. I had got it done yesterday at Prakruthi TVS, it only took 5 mins to get the system connected and the file to be transferred.

Attaching a couple of pics.

It seems to be a performance update, I am yet to test it and I will most probably do a breakfast ride in the coming weeks and check the difference.

Remember earlier in my review, I had mentioned about paint chipping on my right side fairing.

Found these while cleaning my bike.

Fury in all its glory - My TVS Apache RR310 Ownership Review-img_20190210_171046.jpg

I had sent the images to TVS and also updated the issue to the SVC, after examining the fairing and the side cowl, it was concluded that this was a genuine issue of paint chipping and it was decided to replace the parts under warranty.

At the SVC, after removing the parts.

Side Cowl

Right Fairing

I have not heard of anyone reporting paint chipping before in the Bangalore owners group, this might be a first. But hey, it's a first lot vehicle.

February 2019 - The 1st year anniversary ride

"Thou shall not stay home on the bikes anniversary weekend"

Trip requirements: Curvy roads + 1000 km on odo.
Where: Western Ghats for the curves and Murudeshwara for a destination.
When: Feb 2nd - 3rd

With the destination being decided, now comes the planning of the route. Since we wanted to enjoy the curves, almost 60% of our route was through the western ghats.

The Route

Fury in all its glory - My TVS Apache RR310 Ownership Review-img20190130wa0004.jpg

Day 1: Bangalore - Hassan - Kottigehara - Sringeri - Agumbe - Kundapura - Baindur
Distance: 498 kms

This was planned as a group trip, so a total of 11 Apache RR310's and a Benelli 300 joined us. We planned to start at around 4 AM in the morning from the Tumkur road NICE junction, since we had a lot to cover and as per schedule we needed to reach for lunch at Baindur.

It was all dark at 4 AM, we couldn't click any pics and we started as per schedule with much excitement.

Numerous photos to follow

The weather was very cold, and we were freezing just after we took the left from Nelamangala. With no hotels open, we continued our freezing journey up until Hassan, our first pit stop.

Fury in all its glory - My TVS Apache RR310 Ownership Review-img_0964.jpg

We have sunrise

Fury in all its glory - My TVS Apache RR310 Ownership Review-20190202_070826.jpg

We entered the city looking for breakfast, but to our dismay we couldn't find a decent hotel open at 7 AM in the morning. Since we anyway entered the city, we just re fueled our bikes and continued towards Shakleshpur with a moaning sound from the stomach. hehe

The conditions suddenly changed, with a lot of deforestation happening to widen the roads, it was not we were expecting to see in 1st daylight. Just before entering Shakleshpur we found a decent hotel, where we hogged on some fresh Idly's, Vada's and Dosa's finishing with a hot cup of coffee. The Relief !!!!

Nature at its best

Fury in all its glory - My TVS Apache RR310 Ownership Review-img_20190202_122105.jpg

This was the final pic taken before we started to en counter some really good curves of the western ghats, we were all drooling for this moment. The suspension set up on the Apache RR310 gives you so much more confidence in pushing the bike into the corners, with little to no traffic on these roads, we were pushing the bikes as each corner went by.

As much as we were enjoying the corners, staying away from the highway sunlight, we soon realised that there were literally no rest stops on the route we chose, no hotels, no bakeries, nothing. Hey, after all we just wanted the curves right.

We maintained a lead and a sweep so that no one gets missed in these confusing roads, but it didn't pan out as expected. With the group consisting of not so experienced riders on curves, they fell back as the lead group were just pushing ahead. We had to wait at every major diversion by 10-15 mins for others to catch up & regroup. Hunger & waiting doesn't really go well with each other as we all know.

Hours went by without much refreshments, emptying all the water bottles we had packed in our backpacks. It was lunch time when we crossed the Agumbe Ghat, with a couple of snake and deer sightings. Snake?? Yes, we didn't care much. We just proceeded to our destination, since we were all loosing our patience & hungry. Ufff!!! So much for them curves.

Couple of hours later

The time was approximately 3:30 PM, when we finally reached the coastal road of the Maravanthe beach. And what a relief that was, the sight of the mighty Arabian sea. since we knew once we hit the highway we can cover distance a lot faster. Food was closer.

Fury in all its glory - My TVS Apache RR310 Ownership Review-img_20190202_160007.jpg

The relieved/stressed/unpatient faces. God !!!!

Fury in all its glory - My TVS Apache RR310 Ownership Review-img_1007.jpg

At around 4:30 PM, we reached our hotel in Byndoor, much later than we expected.

The Stay: Kshitija Nesara Dhama, Byndoor
Food: 5/5 Must try Bhangda fish fry & Onion Pakoda
Rooms: 5/5
Price: It came down to 500/- per head for 13 members.

This is a govt operated stay, with plenty of parking place, lush green trees, a view of the beach, very good for families and biking groups. I would suggest to order food here itself as there is no other place in close vicinity. Standard veg and non veg meal is provided, you can customize the food choice. Whatever you need, they get it. But make sure you inform them in advance, the food preparation takes time. (We didn't inform them in advance, you know what i mean right, haha)

By beach view I meant this, WHAT A SIGHT !!!! after riding for 12hrs

Fury in all its glory - My TVS Apache RR310 Ownership Review-20190202_173107.jpg

We had planned to visit the Murudeshwara temple on the same day itself, for darshan and sunset. Since darshan on a Sunday would be time consuming and it would also delay our departure to Bangalore. After hogging into 6 plates of onion pakoda, everyone hit the sack to stretch out a bit and eventually the idea to visit the temple got dropped.

Day 1 ended with star gazing, some chilled beers and of course them very close brotherhood talks. What a life !!!

With the ocean roar whispering in our ears and not sure what Day 2 is going to offer us, we tried to get some sleep.

Day well spent

Day 2: Byndoor - Murudeshwara - Sagar - Shivamogga - Chitradurga - Bangalore
Distance: 536 kms

Birds chipping, fresh clean air, the view of the ocean and a hot cup of coffee. We don't get these in Bangalore.

Doesn't brush, doesn't wash face. Runs towards his bike, since it's the 1st year anniversary and starts to clean the bike.

After some early morning photo sessions, we got ready, had breakfast and headed towards Murudeshwara temple for darshan. It is 35 kms from the stay at Byndoor, it took us 20-30 mins. Parking at the temple is spacious, but one needs to be very careful since the place is crowded and some might start misbehaving with your bike.

How did they even build this??. This was my 1st time to Murudeshwara and I was awestruck how tall this was.

After darshan we took the lift which takes us to the top of the tower, it's 10 or 20 Rs per person to travel in the lift. One can stay as long as you want at the top, no pushes or no hurries which was the best part.

The almighty Shiva

Bro Bro take the bike pics bro

Fury in all its glory - My TVS Apache RR310 Ownership Review-20190203_101716.jpg

Hmm let's see if we can fit the tower in the frame. Yes, we can.

We head back to our stay at Byndoor, pack our bags, settle our food bills. Food bill came down to 700/- per head for dinner, breakfast and lunch. So totally it was 1100/- per head for food and stay at Kshitija Nesara Dhama. Totally worth the bucks.

One last view of this place, feels bad when you are heading back to the corporate life.


Fury in all its glory - My TVS Apache RR310 Ownership Review-img20190203130219.jpg

As per schedule we needed to start at 11 AM from Byndoor, but due to the darshan being pushed to Sunday, we started at around 1:30 PM in scorching heat towards Bangalore, and our first stop was Sagara which is around 100 kms. A co rider's house for lunch, which turned into a evening dinner at 4 PM.

Delicious non veg meals

Fury in all its glory - My TVS Apache RR310 Ownership Review-20190203_174446.jpg

We leave Sagara at 6 PM, with route planned via Shivamogga, Chitradurga and then a straight 6 lane highway all the way till Bangalore. Regrouped at Shivamogga city at exactly 10 PM and proceeded towards home. Had a small tea break somewhere between Shivamogga and Chitradurga, since we were all full with the early dinner, we skipped stopping for dinner again.

Shivamogga to Bangalore took close to 6 hrs and I was home at around 4 AM, with a wide grin on my face and not caring if it's Monday already.

Final Stats- A healthy mileage of 35kmpl
