The TVS Apache RR 310 hits way above its weight. And it hits hard, almost ego-hurting hard – as we found out in a rather unexpected scenario.

If I were to look back at the motorcycles I got to ride last year, then my experience with the TVS Apache RR 310 is right up there with not only one of the best times I’ve had with a motorcycle in 2019 but perhaps ever. And, I know, there is a new one coming which is days away at this point but hear me out. That motorcycle could very well be the best value for money performance bike even before it comes out – I’ll explain that in a bit. However, for now, let me tell you about my time with this lovely, lovely motorcycle.
You see, ever since the Apache RR 310 came out, it was one of those motorcycles that eluded me, despite me wanting to get a lot of saddle time on it. It was always something or the other. As a result, I only got to test the first-generation RR 310 on a race track – the MMRT in Chennai. Then, TVS updated the RR 310 with new colour options and several minor tweaks to make it better as an everyday motorcycle and threw in a slipper clutch as well just to add on to its performance. I experienced this updated RR 310 at a race track as well it was the MMRT once again. And both these times I had mentioned that the things that make it so good at that track will go a long way in making it a great everyday motorcycle.
