TVS is all set to launch the Apache RR 310 tomorrow (December 6) at 11am. The fully faired motorcycle is one of the most awaited motorcycle launches of the year. It will be the company’s fastest and most expensive bike till date. Let us look at what we know so far about TVS’ Apache RR 310.
There has been no shortage of leaked images and videos of the upcoming Apache. The latest of which almost completely reveals the design of the bike. With its high tail and sharp fairing, the RR 310 features an aggressive supersport-like design. The bike also looks to have a large angular tank that works well with the rest of motorcycle design. The RR 310 is going to be one of the sharpest, raciest-looking motorcycles in its segment.
TVS has been teasing the motorcycle with videos and captions suggesting how it will be track-focused. They have gone so far as to say that it is “crafted to hit the apex” and we do not doubt that. The motorcycle has all the bits needed for it to be a track-focused motorcycle. Its aggressive stance, high cornering clearance, reasonably rear-set foot pegs, USD fork, trellis-frame, Michelin tyres should help it perform well on the track.
Since the RR 310 has been built around the BMW 310 R, we expect it to share its high-tech DNA. It will get the same 313cc, DOHC, single-cylinder, fuel-injected, liquid-cooled engine. While the peak power and torque outputs for the BMW stand at 34hp and 28Nm of torque, respectively, there’s a chance that the engine will be tuned differently for the TVS. We do believe that many of the underpinnings will be shared with the BMW. This engine will be reverse inclined, just like in the G 310 R, for better weight distribution. In addition to this, it will come equipped with dual-channel ABS, all-around LED lighting, and a feature-filled instrument cluster.
You can watch the launch as it happens at 12pm on December 6 right here on www.autocarindia.com Stay tuned!

Honda Motorcycle and Scooters India (HMSI) has announced opening bookings for its all-new Gold Wing in India with prices starting at Rs 26.85 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). India gets two versions of the Gold Wing – including the Gold Wing Tour – and both models come with a seven-speed, dual-clutch transmission as standard. Interestingly, the pricing is at par with the outgoing Gold Wing and puts the new Honda in the same price bracket as BMW’s own heavyweight tourer, the GTL. Harley Davidson’s Street Glide Special is about Rs 8 lakh pricier, still. The Gold Wing can be booked only at Honda’s dedicated big bike Wing-World outlets in Delhi and Mumbai.
The Gold Wing – which made its debut at the 2017 Tokyo motor show – remains true to its lineage with massive dimensions and an imposing look. As always, the Gold Wing comes with a host of comforts. It also debuts Apple CarPlay on a motorcycle. The ensemble also includes a windscreen that is electrically adjustable for height and angle, a smart key control, a 7.0-inch TFT colour display and full LED lamps.
Powering this motorcycle is an 1,833cc, horizontally-opposed, six-cylinder engine that makes 127hp at 5,500rpm and 170Nm of peak torque at 4,500rpm. Importantly, the new engine uses a 4-valve per cylinder layout, unlike the 2-valve per cylinder setup on the outgoing Gold Wing. As mentioned, the Gold Wing for India will only be offered with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and will also be missing the six-speed manual option, as abroad. The transmission offers a special low-speed ‘Walking’ mode in addition to a reverse gear to ease manoeuvring the bulky motorcycle in and out of parking spaces. Honda has packed in Hill Start Assist, as well; and riders also get cruise control and four ride modes – Tour, Sport, Econ and Rain.
The third-generation Gold Wing is built around a new chassis. The die-cast aluminium twin-beam frame is stiffer and lighter than the older model’s by 2kg. However, the real highlight on the new Gold Wing is its unique double-wishbone front suspension. There are four preloaded settings for the rear springs which can be monitored via the 7.0-inch TFT screen. The Gold Wing comes equipped with ABS and Dual-Combined Braking System (D-CBS), as standard.
