TVS Apache RTR 310 is a naked sport with butt-cooling tech

The cool embrace of speed

Shedding the Apache RR 310’s bodywork for a more angry and streetfighter naked sports look, the TVS Apache uses the same 312cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine but with a forged aluminium piston that is 5% lighter and produces a peak power of 35.6 hp and 28.7 Nm of torque. There’s also the 6-speed transmission with a new Bi-Directional Quickshifter which should make everything a bit better. You also get dual-channel ABS, Cruise control, Linear Traction Control and rear lift protection.

The trellis frame of the TVS Apache RTR 310 is very similar to the one on its RR 310 sibling but now you also get the adjustable hand levers with 4 levels of adjustment. When it comes to tech there’s a 5-inch TFT display that lets you customise settings like traction control, cruise control, quick shifter, climatic seat control, TPMS, headlamp brightness and DRLs. There’s also the  SmartXonnect Bluetooth connectivity which links the TVS Apache RTR 310 with your smartphone and brings a host of connected features. Call control, music control, GoPro control, smart helmet connectivity, voice assist, race telemetry, precise turn-by-turn navigation with what3words, Digi docs and crash alert. There’s a lot here and if you go for the Dynamic Pro kit then you’ll even get to toast or cool your buttocks with a climate control seat. The TVS Apache RTR 310 starts at ₹2,42,990 for the Arsenal Black variant without the Quickshifter.
