The bike is already completely up-to-date. It got the TFT screen, reduction of vibrations, better tyres and rising modes with the BS-6 upgrade. What else can be stuffed inside a motorcycle at this price point?

I really have no clue on why the Apache RR310 is not a sales success, on paper it has got everything right.

The Supersport looks were one of the strongest points of the all rounder RR310. Why toss all the R&D money that went into creating a sleek and stylish looking product that had a class leading drag coefficient?

I have a feeling they have 'improved' it in the same way they ruined the RTR200's face.

Only good thing is, maybe they do away with the expensive projectors and stick a smaller price tag.

I agree with your points on features vs price. The real reason for not being blockbuster success is TVS dealers, they are hell bent on not selling this product. They are least bothered with customers enquiring for RR310, I have first hand experience of them.

Sorry to say this, but the engine is weakest part of the package.
Its just not maniac enough for a sporty bike. And its not even that fast. Its brisk, but not exactly fast. And neither does it feel fast.

The engine character is more suited to the G310GS, or even the G310R.

And its biggest competitor, the RC390, is fast, and feels fast.

So what can we expect from the TVS team:

+ Adjustable suspension
+ TVS Eurogrip tyres

- Michelin Road 5 tyres

I think adjustable suspension just like how they got it for the little brother RTR. Tyres will definitely be changed and I have a feeling they won't be michelin any more. Other then that i don't see much changing, highly doubt the headlight to change.

I agree with above sentiments, with all that updates and features, it should sell much better, maybe TVS also needs Nexa like setup, and they should sell the entire Apache range from there and any upcoming model based on the BMW engines.

I think this beautiful bike gets everything from stunning looks to modern-day features.

But, they HAVE to put more character into the bike by bumping up its power figures, that is the weakest link in it.

And there is no room left for another price hike as per me.

It was initially scheduled in April but had to be postponed due to the second wave of the COVID-19.

See one Youtube channel with a "Made to order" suffix on the live video title.

Is the RR310 going to be a Made to Order product going forward?

So a short summary:
Front and rear adjustable suspension
New factory racing paint scheme
Red alloys available for black and factory paint scheme
No engine updates
No design updates(apart from the color)
Race exhaust for better sound
Race handlebar, Race foot pegs available for all RR310's sold since December 2017
Ex showroom 2.59 lacs
Pricing for the kits as mentioned below
Updated instrument cluster with an option to store all bike related documents
Dynamic rev limiter
New wave bite key which can be used as a tool to adjust suspension
BTO (Build To Order) model of bookings and sales
Sorry for the unprofessional kind off update log from my side. Typed it in a hurry.

One thing that I find strange is only 150 units are available for September and October. Should we blame this on the chip shortage? I dont know.

I hope the race exhaust is lighter then the current one which helps in some performance gain as well.

Overall a decent mid cycle upgrade, the bike looks beautiful as is, good to see some more customization options open up. Some day I would like to see this with a twin cylinder churning around 65-70 bhp, would make it even more capable and fun to ride.

Good to see TVS not giving up on there Halo product.

The price is also up by Rs. 10,000 ex-showroom. Looks like this is what they're giving for that bump up.

-Updated exhaust design. Supposedly, this has been updated to allow better leaning, as well as put out a more appealing note.

-Higher security wave bite key which also doubles up as a suspension adjustment tool if you go for the adjustable suspension.

The updated instrument cluster functions like the rev limit indicator, day trip meter and document storage and display on the instrument panel is, I guess, a free update.
