The bike also gets redesigned graphics and will come with a BS6-compliant engine.
Recently, the BS6 variant of the TVS Apache RR 310 was spotted testing. A new set of spy images reveal that the BS6 variant will get an updated instrument console and a new dual-tone colour scheme.
The current model of the bike comes with a BS4-complaint 312.2 cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine mated to a 6-speed gearbox which delivers 34 PS of power and 28 Nm of torque. The same unit is found in the entry-level BMW G 310 R and the G 310 GS. Both the BMW bikes are assembled alongside the Apache RR 310 at TVS’s Hosur facility in Tamil Nadu.
The vertical digital console of TVS RR 310 is likely to get a rev counter with a blue colour scheme that turns red when close to the red line. Telltale lights are placed above and below the coloured screen and the RPM shift light is located at the left. The newly designed digital console integrates new features. In the updated layout, new buttons are present in order to toggle through the digital instrument.
A BS6 upgrade generally needs a lot of rework in terms of fueling and exhaust department, and usually, power figures are altered to some extent. As seen in the case of the recently revealed BS6 Apache RTR 160 4V, power was slightly changed while in the case of the BS6 Apache RTR 200, it stays the same. TVS cannot afford such an alteration in terms of power as its rival, the Bajaj Dominar 400 BS6 avatar gets a considerable rise in power figures.
In 2019, TVS came with a minor update for the RR 310. The single-cylinder bike got a new black gloss colour scheme along with a slip-and-assist-clutch.
