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.

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.

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.
