TVS Apache RR 310 was launched in December last year and it instantly became the talk of the town for multiple reasons. At the time of launch, the company stated that it is aiming at 10,000 unit sales of the motorcycle annually and seems like it is on the right track. The TVS Apache RR 310 outsold the KTM RC 390 in the month of March 2018 with its best-ever sales of 983 units. In fact, the motorcycle had beaten the combined sales of KTM RC 390 and Duke 390. Now, keeping things in its favour, the TVS Apache RR 310 has done it again. According to the latest SIAM (Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers) data, the TVS flagship found 862 new homes in the month of April while the combined sales of KTM RC390 and Duke 390 stood at 800 units. That said, the TVS Apache RR 310 beats the KTM 390 twins for the second month in a row.
