TVS Apache RR 310 Road Test Review: Friendly And Customisable

TVS Apache RR 310 Road Test Review: Friendly And Customisable

Reviews by Team Drivio | 26 Jun 2023

With the Built-to-order (BTO) kit, you can customise the RR 310 according to your needs.

  • The RR 310 boasts of an extremely attractive design language and it’s hands-down the best looking Indian bike. 
  • Prices for the Apache RR 310 begin from Rs 2.72 lakh, ex-showroom. 
  • Its rivals include the Kawasaki Ninja 400 and the KTM RC 390.

The TVS Apache RR 310, often overlooked and underrated, has undergone significant improvements since its initial release. Admittedly, the first iteration had its fair share of flaws, particularly the persistent vibrations that haunted riders' experiences. However, TVS deserves recognition for addressing these issues through two major updates, transforming the motorcycle into a refined and well-rounded sports machine.

TVS has now introduced the innovative Built To Order (BTO) program, and one of the first bikes to undergo this customization was the Apache RR 310. Eager to examine the impact of the BTO kits on the bike's real-world performance, we subjected it to rigorous testing at the MMRT (Madras Motor Race Track), where it effortlessly surpassed our expectations. 

This left us curious about the enhancements brought about by the BTO program, particularly in terms of the RR 310's rideability. Equally important, we sought to explore the process of finding the optimal suspension tune tailored to individual preferences.

TVS Apache RR 310: Design & Features

TVS has kept the sleek shark-inspired design of the Apache RR 310 largely unchanged. However, in the updated version, you have the option to customize the colour, including the alloy wheels, and even choose the TVS Racing livery. Additionally, you can add a personalized racing number on the visor.

The Apache RR 310 continues to impress with its extensive range of features. The TFT display now allows you to store and view important documents like the bike's RC card and license directly on the instrument cluster. 

TVS has also introduced new features such as a dynamic engine rev limit indicator, a day trip meter, and an over-speed indication. Notable features from the previous version include all-LED lighting, a slip-and-assist clutch, and dual-channel ABS with varying levels of intervention. Unfortunately, it is worth noting that the ABS cannot be completely turned off or disabled for the rear wheel.

We are happy to announce that the RR 310 retains its lively performance, just like the 2020 model. Since there have been no modifications to the engine tune, fuelling, ride modes, weight, or gearing, it comes as no surprise that the RR 310 delivers the same acceleration and roll-on acceleration times as its predecessor. 

Furthermore, we are pleased that TVS has managed to maintain the use of the highly grippy Michelin Road 5 tires on the RR 310.

Included in the BTO kit, the Dynamic pack offers a range of customizable features for the Apache RR 310. Notably, it includes a fully adjustable separate function fork at the front, as well as an adjustable monoshock at the rear, both sourced from Kayaba.

The Apache RR 310’s 174kg kerb weight might sound on the higher side but we’re pleased to report that the bike doesn’t really feel that way once picked off the stand. It’s light, flickable and makes lane changes quite a breeze. 

TVS Apache RR 310: Variants& Price

BikePrice (Ex-showroom Delhi)
TVS Apache RR 310Rs 2,72,000 onwards

The TVS Apache RR 310 comes with a price tag of Rs 2,72,000. However, for those seeking additional customization and performance enhancements, TVS offers the Built To Order (BTO) option. This allows riders to choose from different kits to personalize their RR 310 further. The BTO variant, equipped with the Race Kit and Dynamic Kit, is available at a retail price of Rs 2,89,000 (both prices are ex-showroom Delhi). 


By opting for the complete range of BTO enhancements, the price of the Apache RR 310 rises to Rs 2.89 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Admittedly, this may seem slightly steep, particularly if you can forgo the race livery. However, when considering the overall package, there is simply no other sub-400cc supersport motorcycle available that offers the same level of sophistication, adjustability, and sheer fun. In fact, even within higher segments, it would be challenging to find a comparable combination.

In conclusion, while the price may give some pause for consideration, the Apache RR 310, with its range of BTO enhancements, represents an exceptional value proposition. Its unrivalled sophistication, adjustability, and sheer enjoyment set it apart from the competition, making it a top choice in its class.
