My TVS Apache RR310 Ownership Review | 1 Year and 6,000 km up

Hello, bhpians! Welcome to the ownership review of my RR310 ( TVS flagship machine)


My TVS Apache RR310 Ownership Review | 1 Year and 6,000 km up-img_20230518_101338_030.jpg

Likes-

1. Looks like a proper 600cc plus superbike. It is a head turner, the public forgets their work to have a glance at this motorcycle. Resembles a Ducati, especially in the Red Color.

2. Build Quality is amazing, every part is made up of high-quality materials.No Rattles from any part of the bike at any speed, whether passing from potholes or speed breakers.

3. Performance - 0 to 60 kmph in 2.8 secs and 0 to 100kmph in 6.5 secs with a top speed of around 170 kmph.

4. No stalling issues, can be ridden at 15 kmph in 3rd gear and 25 kmph in 4th gear. It passes 2nd gear speed breaker tests with flying colors.

5. Heat management is just amazing. It is very difficult to spot the radiator fan in action. Engine temperature always remains between 80 to 90 degree Celsius all year around.

6. Handling is very good. The rider looks for the opportunity to take the corners aggressively. It has Very good ground clearance.

7. Rear Taillight is very beautiful and stands out from the crowd.

Dislikes

1. Minor Vibrations- They don't come from the engine, they arise from the dry chain. They start to creep in after 300 km of riding after lubricating the chain. So I found the solution for this, I lubricate the chain in 300 km intervals.

2. Headlight- It is " Adequate". Good for city use but the scenario changes on the highways, above 80 or 90 kmph I find them very weak. Above 100 it feels like the headlight isn't even there. Going for some aftermarket light is an option but since I don't take the bike on highways at night and ride it only in the sunlight so I didn't go for them.

3. NOT for the pillion. Once I sat on the rear seat when my friend was driving the bike, it felt like I am ON TOP OF BURJ KHALIFA. All cars like Fortuner and Endeavor were below me.

4. Exhaust note is not that great. Even Apache RTR 200 and 160 sound better.

5. If the engine turns off by mistake in traffic or red light signals, then on some occasions you have to thumb the starter multiple times for the motor to come to life.

6. Though a 150-section rear tire is the standard size among 300- 400cc motorcycles, It looks small on the RR310 due to its humongous size.

Re: My TVS APACHE RR310 Ownership Review- 1 Year and 6000 Km's

Alternatives Considered

KTM RC 390 Old generation 2022

My TVS Apache RR310 Ownership Review | 1 Year and 6,000 km up-screenshot_20230519094300_instagram.jpg
Since (2014-15) I was impressed with the Ktm's because of their raw and wild power delivery.
So this time, I went to the Ktm showroom and took a test drive of rc 390.

Few observations

ENGINE STALLING ISSUE- It was very difficult to ride at slow city speeds below 60 kmph. Unlike RR310, Ktm needs very frequent gear changes. Ktm needs 2nd gear only after 25-30 kmph while one can ride RR310 in 2nd gear from 10 kmph without stalling. The same thing applies to 3rd and 4th gear also. RR310 can be ridden in 4th gear at 35 kmph, at this speed Ktm will shift to 3rd gear from 2nd.

Crowd and Image - After taking the test drive of rc390 for the next few days (approx. a month), I kept a keen eye on the people who are buying and riding Ktm and I found the majority of the crowd riding KTM is what we call 'Chapri nibbas". All of them were riding very fast, rash along with giving a lot of cuts to the other vehicles on the road in chappals without helmets. They are always ready to do road rage.

The 125cc category is majorly taken by these nibbas and they have spoilt the image of such a good brand.
KTM should stop selling the 125cc bikes and make their inventory above 250cc.

EXCLUSIVITY FACTOR- Today Ktm comes in 125cc, 250cc, and 390cc, one can spot so many 125cc Ktm on the road so there was no exclusivity factor in owning a 390cc Ktm.
so rejected.

RE INTERCEPTOR 650
My TVS Apache RR310 Ownership Review | 1 Year and 6,000 km up-screenshot_20230519094218_instagram.jpg
I am a guy who loves the latest technology and modern looks. I was not a fan of the RE design language but stills went for the test drive because somewhat the same price range.

Few Observations

1. RE provides the best dealership experience.

2. Just give a license and take the bike alone, absolutely no restriction on the time and km.

3. Polite staff with knowledge, who doesn't try to let down the other bikes to make their bike look good.

4. Most refined 650cc parallel twin engine with the best exhaust note.

5. Undertyred, the tires cant take a load of high-speed braking plus full-throttle acceleration.

6. In my eyes the bike doesn't look like a 4 lakh bike( no offense to the respected owners of it), I observed a few bikes coming towards me from a distance and I mistook them for some low-budget bike.

Bajaj Dominar
My TVS Apache RR310 Ownership Review | 1 Year and 6,000 km up-screenshot_20230519093950_instagram.jpg
At that time the bike was available only in the touring model which in terms of looks and usability I didn't like, Afterall I am not going to do touring with the bike so rejected it.

Few observations

1. Bajaj staff is not at all interested to sell the bike, looks it like a govt. office.

2. Good exhaust note.

3. The bike is very heavy.

4. It carries the same Ktm engine but Dominar is a lot smoother to ride and in NVH levels.

5. Most value-for-money bike in the segment, if it was available without a touring model and some other color rather than black and green then I think today the story would be different.

Re: My TVS APACHE RR310 Ownership Review- 1 Year and 6000 Km's

STYLING AND DESIGN

My TVS Apache RR310 Ownership Review | 1 Year and 6,000 km up-20230212_102716.jpg


1. Design inspiration came from some gorgeous machines – Daytona (the 675 from 2006 and Ducati (the red trellis, Panigale-ish profile, and tail-end). The RR310 is TVS most beautiful bike, yet.

Ducati Inspired Red Trellis frame
My TVS Apache RR310 Ownership Review | 1 Year and 6,000 km up-20230530_110141.jpg

2. The result of over 300 hrs of wind tunnel testing, RR 310 claims to be the benchmark in aerodynamics (for an Indian motorcycle in this segment), and it has all the visual signs to make this claim a believable one.

3. The RR 310 somewhat resembles a Ducati in the red paint job. From the sharp lines on the fairing to the pinched tail section, there's a beautiful mix of form and function.
RR 310 looks special in every sense of the word.

My TVS Apache RR310 Ownership Review | 1 Year and 6,000 km up-snapchat140886296.jpg

The bi-LED projector headlights have been integrated neatly into the fairing and are underlined by a blacked-out split beak. A flush-fitting windscreen tops off the front-end styling and it sports a hard-to-miss Indian tricolor decal on the top-right corner – it’s about time we got patriotic about our motorcycles.

Booking And Delivery Experience

1. It was average.

2. Not as good as RE nor as bad as Bajaj. Comparable to KTM.

3. They demanded Rs 10k as a booking amount and promised the delivery of the bike in 8 days. The new lot bikes including black color and red color were unloaded from the truck on the 6th day itself in front of me, after that I took a test drive along with PDI. There were no red flags so I gave a green signal to the SA.

4. They didn't arrange something special for their flagship product. Before me a customer was taking the delivery of his Tvs Jupiter, I saw all the process of it and the TVS guys repeated the same with me.

5. A special and unique delivery of the flagship product which costs more than 3 lakhs is highly necessary, consider this advice TVS.

6. A simple duplicate large key-giving picture by SA to me was taken and that's it.

TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS OF BIKE

Engine Type - 4 strokes, 4 valves, Single cylinder, Liquid-cooled, Reverse inclined.
Codeveloped by BMW Motorrad and TVS.
Engine Displacement -312.2 cc
Max Power -34 PS @ 9700 rpm
Max Torque -27.3 Nm @ 7700 rpm
Kerb Weight- 168 to 174 kg
Top Speed- 160 kmph claimed by TVS but some have attained 170- 173 kmph top speed on YouTube.

Engine Charector
Below 5500 rpm the bike behaves like a 200cc bike and above 5500 rpm it unleashes its true potential. This is a good thing for a person upgrading from a smaller displacement bike

Safety Features ( Loaded upto the brim)

ABS-
1. The rear abs come into action a lot of times even when there is very less rear braking bite.
2. Hardly saw the front abs into action even when 90% of the stopping power comes from the front.

GLIDE THROUGH TRAFFIC
This function helps to ride the bike only with the use of a clutch without the accelerator during heavy traffic.
Put the bike into 2nd gear and leave the clutch without any throttle and the bike will glide on its own at 12-15 kmph and 18-20 kmph in 3rd gear.

THROTTLE BT WIRE
It gets a sensor to sense the throttle input rather than the old cable-type mechanism of the throttle. This is very precise and the bike knows what the rider wants from it immediately.

SLIPPER CLUTCH
It allows the rider to do rapid downshifts while preventing the rear wheel hop.

Reverse inclined engine
Helps to keep the center of gravity in the middle of the bike thus resulting in improved cornering and handling characteristics.

Separate Duct to pass fan Air
My TVS Apache RR310 Ownership Review | 1 Year and 6,000 km up-20230530_110132.jpg

This does its job perfectly by proving a separate passage to the hot air coming from the engine when the fan turns on. The hot air passes directly to the ground and I don't feel any heat on my legs. It is written that do not block the duck so that the hot air can pass through it.

Accessories

1. Bought a helmet. This one is SMK, I can't remember the exact model. It came with a pin-lock 30 which is removed after a few days because I use spectacles. Even when the pin-lock prevents fogging of the visor, The fog accumulates on my specs. So I prevent myself from riding the bike in the rain.

My TVS Apache RR310 Ownership Review | 1 Year and 6,000 km up-20230519_121132.jpg

2. Elegant Auto Brand Seat cover. It is of very good quality and looks good too.
My TVS Apache RR310 Ownership Review | 1 Year and 6,000 km up-20230530_110001.jpg

Usage Pattern

1. For a daily office commute of 5 km on one side.
2. For going to the gym in the evening and some random rides with friends to malls, lakeside, etc.
3. Total distance I ride per day is 20 km.

Riding Stance and Position

1. While the overall visual appeal is sporty, the RR 310 isn’t a hardcore, out-to-get-you machine. Yes, the ‘RR’ in its name does, indeed, stand for Race Replica but its riding position is nowhere close to as committed on a supersport or superbike. TVS understands the Indian audience’s excitement towards a fully-faired motorcycle but also knows that not everyone lives next door to a racetrack. Let’s admit it – a committed riding position makes you look like a genuine racer-boy but almost nobody can live with the wrist-kill that comes with it.

2. There’s ample room to sit on offer. This helps me with being comfortable on high-speed cruises and long distances.

3. The riding posture is just perfect and doesn't tire me at all, I am 6ft tall and it feels like the bike is perfectly designed for me.
When I sit on it I get a feeling that it completes me.

My TVS Apache RR310 Ownership Review | 1 Year and 6,000 km up-20230530_110542.jpg
There is a lot of room in the front riding seat.

1. If you sit behind then the riding posture becomes committed and comes close to KTM RC.

2. If you sit in the front then riding posture comes close to Dominar or Interceptor.

Mileage

CITY- 25 kmpl

HIGHWAY- 38 kmpl on 70 kmph, 35 kmpl at 80kmph, 33 kmpl at 90kmph, 31kmpl at 100kmph, 27 kmpl at 120 kmph. And drops its 18-20 kmpl near its top speed.

Tvs claim a tank capacity of 11L, but in reality, it drinks about 11.5 L.
The bike gives a range of about 280 km on the full tank when used inside the city.

In my motorcycle, a lot of effort is needed to close the fuel lid after refueling. The fuel lid closes only after applying a lot of pressure from above and then rotating the key to close it.

Re: My TVS APACHE RR310 Ownership Review- 1 Year and 6000 Km's

Headlights

Low Beam
My TVS Apache RR310 Ownership Review | 1 Year and 6,000 km up-20230530_213421.jpg

High Beam
My TVS Apache RR310 Ownership Review | 1 Year and 6,000 km up-20230530_213428.jpg
In high beams, the left projector has more power than the right one. In low beams, both projectors have the same intensity. High beams are of no use on the highway at a speed above 80 kmph.

Dual Horns
The best in the segment and above the segment also. Sound premium and loud. Almost comparable to a small hatchback horn.
My TVS Apache RR310 Ownership Review | 1 Year and 6,000 km up-20230530_111316.jpg

Instrument cluster

1. The instrument cluster is generously informative and displays a speedometer, tachometer, gear position indicator, mileage, range, and clock.

2. The cluster also features a readout, each, for the average speed, 0-60 kph timings, and in Lap Timer mode, well – the lap time (which you can set on the move by pressing the headlight pass switch)

Visibility and Size of Mirrors

The quality is very good. The size is just perfect. They don't get misaligned due to air resistance during high-speed highway runs.
But at a speed above 100kmph, the mirrors tend to vibrate a little bit which hinders the rear visibility.
My TVS Apache RR310 Ownership Review | 1 Year and 6,000 km up-20230530_110454.jpg

Ground Clearance- very good 180 mm, in my 6000 km of riding. It didn't scrape even once on potholes and speed breakers at high speeds also.

Braking- It is good. It is 90% done by the front brakes and 10% by the rear ones. The brake bite is good a little progressive I would say. Brake pads are expensive though approx. 2500 for front pad replacement.
My TVS Apache RR310 Ownership Review | 1 Year and 6,000 km up-point-blur_may302023_115416.jpg

Handlebar-

1. This is just at the perfect position, not too lean nor too uprise. This makes the bike the A SPORTS TOURER for munching miles on the highway without any back pain.
2. To give an idea RTR180 handlebar is a lower set than the rr310.
3. It is properly wide and the feel of holding it is just amazing due to the good quality handlebar grips.

Weight of Bike

Kerb's weight is around 168 to 174 kg. I think it takes a little bit of effort to reverse the bike in some places, otherwise, it is ok. I go to the gym regularly and train my legs so I reverse it from slopes even when I am sitting on it. But It will be a problem for short heighted people to reverse the bike from the slope.

Maintenance

At ASS for 1st Service

My TVS Apache RR310 Ownership Review | 1 Year and 6,000 km up-videocapture_20230519121521.jpg

1 got my 1st year of service done at TVS ASS.
Cost- Rs 3500. ( Engine oil- 1750, Oil Filter -300, Airfilter- 400, Labour- 1000).

Reached ASS at around 10 am and they completed the whole work by 2 pm. The service guy was knowledgeable about regular work like oil changes, air filter changes, etc. The moment I told him to adjust the headlight alignment he was unable to do it. So I did it myself by seeing some YT videos. Tvs set high beams into the sky from the factory( observed this with my friend's bike also).

Unfortunately, while riding fast at night a hit a pothole, due to which my front left fork seal got destroyed and bot my tire got a sidewall cut so got them replaced.

The parts are expensive to give an idea,
Front Headlight costs approx. Rs 23000.
One suspension fork costs Rs14000.
Front brake pads cost about RS 2500.
Fork oil and seal change costs Rs 1500.
Labor is not included in the above rate.


Niggles
During the first service, ASS staff connected their tab to the ECU for updates but ECU got blown off, idk how but they immediately changed it under warranty. So they delivered the bike the next day.

OVERALL BUILD QUALITY

One word is "Premium".
Everything is built to last in the bike, all the touch points in the bike feel premium.
The handlebar grip quality is amazing, the rubber feels solid and premium.
The start button presses with a solid tick sound.
The indicator button is very soft and it presses with a solid tick sound.
Every button is very robust.

Notice the Good quality of all wires and how they are neatly done

My TVS Apache RR310 Ownership Review | 1 Year and 6,000 km up-20230530_111310.jpg

Rear footpeg opens with a very nice click sound, which speaks about the quality
My TVS Apache RR310 Ownership Review | 1 Year and 6,000 km up-20230530_110412.jpg

Chain is very thick and solid. In my 6000km riding, the need was no need to tighten it even once. It demands chain lube every 300-500 kms

Ceramic Coating Done

I got it ceramic-coated from Detailing Devils. The result of ceramic is more noticeable in the Red Color.

The front windshield accumulates dust above the number plate and below the instrument cluster even when TVS had introduced a rubber lining below the instrument cluster in a recall, planning to do a matt black wrap on it.

Rear

Night Pictures of The Beast

The bike looks very premium at night also. Everything like headlights, taillights, and turn indicators are equipped with High-quality LEDs

Ducati Inspired Omega Tail light
My TVS Apache RR310 Ownership Review | 1 Year and 6,000 km up-20230530_213546.jpg

The white led for the Number plate is super bright and gives a premium feel.
My TVS Apache RR310 Ownership Review | 1 Year and 6,000 km up-point-blur_may302023_214917.jpg

Turn Indicators are Super bright. If the rider forgets to turn off the indicator after making a turn then the bike turns off the indicator by itself in 15 seconds.
My TVS Apache RR310 Ownership Review | 1 Year and 6,000 km up-videocapture_20230530215016-mod.jpg

So for now this is it guys!!, will post regular updates about the bike in my thread.

Thank you for reading my ownership review !!!

Excellent review, I wish you thousands of miles on this mean machine.

It appears to me that you're making the same mistake that I initially did with my RTR200.
After refuelling to close the fuel lid effortlessly, just remove the key at close position while the lid is open, push it downwards gently and it'll automatically close then. Do give this a try.

Excellent review. My review has been in the assembly line for quite some time.
I own the RR310 BTO in racing red. Usually, the engine temperature is in the range of 100C to 115C.

As you said, the build quality is top-notch, but I noticed that the windshield rattles under hard acceleration.

Congrats on your buy.
A great machine indeed, but perhaps suffering from Indian customers' hesitation to spend big bucks on a TVS. I have seen a couple of my friends buying a pale 'BMW' 310 instead of a better 'TVS' RR310

In RR310, the key doesn't come out at the close position. So this is not possible. But thanks for some advice.

I think the engine temperature depends upon the city in which we live. I live in Udaipur and its climate is comparable to Banglore or Pune which is pleasant and cold.

Yeah, correct words. TVS is offering better tires than Bmw at a slightly lower price. Plus tvs have more service centers and service cost is slightly lower.

This time I didn't go for TVS engine oil instead bought the Motul. And I noticed there is a slight difference in the engine NVH.
The funny thing is TVS engine oil is costlier than Motul by Rs 300.

Rs 1790 bill is without engine oil, add Rs 1450 for engine oil. Total approx Rs 3200.
The same service for BMW G 310RR will cost 6-7k and in case there is no service center in a city then one will have to go to another city which will add another thousands of bucks as a petrol charge.

I own the RR310 BTO in racing red. Usually, the engine temperature is in the range of 100C to 115C.
Is this resolved or still its above 100 degrees.

How do you deal with vibrations on this bike ? Few days ago, I took a test ride of a brand new motorcycle and this was so evident from pedal to handle, across the rpm range. I was initially planning to buy a BMW or Apache, but then because of this moved to CB350 RS.

Recently got a chance to test ride both the bikes. The BMW had noticeably less vibrations ,but had the same loud, gruffy engine. Sometimes I don't get it, has TVS-BMW deliberately given the engine such characteristics to make it sporty or sound sporty, or were they unable to work on the engine refinement?
