Speaking of the company's recent launches, the brand has launched the TVS Apache RR 310 with slipper clutch at a price of Rs 2.27 lakh (ex-showroom). That being said, the new model costs almost Rs 3,000 more than the price of the previous model. Apart from the inclusion of a race-tuned slipper clutch, the new 2019 TVS Apache RR 310 gets a new colour option that goes by the name Phantom Black.
Powering the new model is the same 312cc, single cylinder, liquid-cooled engine mated to a six-speed transmission system. The fuel injected engine is good for developing respective power and torque outputs of 34 bhp and 27 Nm. We have recently ridden the new model and came back pretty much impressed as the bike now offers better rideability. Former Indian cricket team captain, Mahendra Singh Dhoni is the first owner of the 2019 TVS Apache RR 310.
