Two-wheeler maker TVS Motors said it launched an upgraded version of its sports bike TVS Apache RR 310 model with Race Turned (RT) Slipper Clutch technology.
The upgrade provides swift gear shifting with low hand fatigue and maintains the vehicle’s stability at high speed during downshifts, especially in corners, TVS Motors said.
The slipper function of the bike allows rapid downshifts preventing wheel hop and chain whip. The system is also engineered with an Assist Function wherein the clutch plates lock tightly increasing the clutch engagement force, thus resulting in reduced clutch effort.
The upgraded variant, priced at Rs 2.27 lakh, will be available in two colours- Racing Red and Phantom Black.
“The super premium motorcycle, which is seen as an ultimate track weapon, originates from our racing pedigree and boasts of industry first features. We also want to expand this experience to our existing TVS Apache RR 310 customers, who will appreciate the enhanced racing dynamics”, said KN Radhakrishnan, Director and CEO, TVS Motors.
TVS launched the Apache RR 310 in December 2017. Developed alongside the BMW G 310 GS and BMW G 310 R, the motorcycle uses the same 312.2cc single cylinder liquid-cooled engine.
Headquartered in Chennai, TVS Motors is the third largest motorcycle company in India with a revenue of over Rs 15,000 crore as of 2017-18.
A flagship company of the TVS Group, TVS Motor Company is also the 2nd largest exporter in India with exports to over 60 countries.
