BMW releases new teaser for its upcoming Apache RR 310-based sports bike, the fairing has been redesigned

Just a few days back, BMW Motorrad India flaunted a teaser on its Instagram page about what would be its upcoming 310 cc performance bike sporting the legendary ‘RR’ tag. And its launch was slated for 15th July.

At that time, with just 1 picture at hand, we told you that the upcoming Beemer would be more of a rebadge job than something out of the box. But now, it seems, we have been proven wrong as a set of pictures from a new teaser reveal the opposite.

From the smudged images, we can make out that the front visor doesn’t resemble the 1 on the existing TVS Apache RR 310 although the overall silhouette remains the same.

The triangle shaped recess between the 2 head lamps on the Apache has been removed and, in its place, there seems to be something like a fake air intake system or a piano black element giving the upcoming bike a similar look to that of the Triumph Daytona.

Even the visor’s bubble looks bigger and more curved than that of the Apache’s unit. Further the bike has been wrapped with BMW’s trademark Light White/Racing Blue Metallic/Racing Red livery.

The sports bike is expected to get a name something like BMW S 310 RR as the TVS’ version of the bike is already a super sport challenging bikes that a much bigger like the KTM RC 390.

Despite being a single cylinder with a rather small 312 cc engine, TVS Apache RR 310 has some serious numbers to boast. It can hit 60 km/hr in 2.93 seconds while ton comes in 7.17 seconds. The super sport can hit genuine a top speed of 166 km/hr.

TVS has loaded the bike with some serious tech and features too. It gets a 5-inch colour TFT screen with connected features including race telemetry, dual-channel ABS, 3 ride modes with electronic throttle control, slipper clutch, Michelin Road 5 tires, etc.

Above all, the bike has been wind tunnel tested for achieving the perfect real world aerodynamics unlike many of its competitors which relied only on CFD software for analysing drag.

When launched, it will compete against the likes of the recently launched 2022 KTM RC 390, 2022 Kawasaki Ninja 300, and Royal Enfield Continental GT 650.
