Rumour: TVS Apache RR 310's naked version coming this month

The Apache RTR 310 is expected to be rebadged BMW G 310 R, with styling inspired by the Draken concept.

The TVS Apache RR 310 could soon get a streetfighter version. Dubbed the Apache RTR 310, the new model is expected to be a rebadged BMW G 310 R and could be launched by the end of this month.

According to a media report, the styling of the RTR 310 is likely to be inspired by the Draken concept that was showcased at Auto Expo 2014. So, we can expect to see an aggressive-looking naked motorcycle with a sporty LED headlamp up front, an exposed frame and a narrow tail section. 

The report states that the RTR 310 will use the same 313cc, single-cylinder that powers the BMW G 310 R. This unit develops 33.5 BHP and 27.3 Nm and is paired with a 6-speed gearbox via a slipper clutch. That being said, TVS is likely to retune the engine for a better mid-range grunt. The bike's top speed is rumoured to be 158 km/h.

Coming to the features and equipment, the new model may not get the RR 310’s vertical instrument console. Instead, the RTR 310 could get a horizontal TFT screen offering Bluetooth connectivity.
