TVS is gearing up for an exhilarating August and September, brimming with exciting plans in the pipeline. Alongside the eagerly anticipated launch of a new scooter on August 23, the company has unveiled another significant launch scheduled for September 6. Clues embedded in a teaser have set the stage for an intriguing unveiling, with coordinates pointing to Bangkok’s iconic Democracy Monument in Thailand.
The hashtag “#RestlessToPlay” has fueled speculations that the much-awaited TVS Apache RTR 310 will take the spotlight on September 6. Recent sightings have unveiled fresh details about the bike, which bears striking similarities to its sibling, the Apache RR 310. Notably, the Apache RTR 310 boasts adaptable levers and directional buttons seamlessly integrated into the left switchgear.
Distinguishing itself, the motorcycle showcases a distinctively designed alloy wheel, setting it apart from the Apache RR 310. The streetfighter’s bold yet sleek headlight unit draws comparisons to the renowned Kawasaki Z1000’s headlight design. An interesting feature is the radiator’s innovative duct system, strategically engineered to divert heat away from the rider’s legs.
Among its standout features is a captivating split-seat arrangement, accentuated by split grab rails, rear-set footpegs, and an alluringly sporty riding posture.
The intriguing design of the Apache RTR 310 has piqued interest since its first sighting a month ago. Built on the robust foundation of the 310cc platform, a collaboration between TVS and BMW, the new streetfighter exudes an assertive and aggressive street naked aesthetic. The muscular fuel tank, embellished with extensions, is juxtaposed with a visually striking LED taillight that adds a touch of eccentricity.

Subsequent sightings of the bike, captured a few weeks after its initial appearance, have shed further light on its design elements. The Apache RTR 310 will feature a dynamic floating license plate holder, sleek rear indicators, and will inherit the distinctive chunky exhaust system from its predecessors—the Apache RR 310, BMW G 310 R, and BMW G 310 GS. Departing from its supersport counterpart, the Apache RTR 310 showcases a horizontally-aligned digital console, anticipated to be a cutting-edge TFT unit with connectivity capabilities.
Beneath its captivating exterior, the Apache RTR 310 boasts impressive underpinnings, including a USD fork (likely non-adjustable) and a preload-adjustable monoshock setup. This setup complements the twin disc brakes, equipped with dual-channel ABS, ensuring a potent combination of control and performance. Powering the Apache RTR 310 is the robust 312.7cc reverse-inclined single-cylinder engine, unleashing a spirited 34PS of power and 27.3Nm of torque, a powerhouse shared with the Apache RR 310, BMW G 310 R, and BMW G 310 GS.
Anticipation is mounting as the forthcoming TVS Apache RTR 310 gears up for its grand debut, poised with an approximate price tag of Rs 2.5 lakh (ex-showroom) on September 6. Its formidable contenders in the market include the KTM 390 Duke, Triumph Speed 400, BMW G 310 R, and Honda CB300R.
Get ready to witness the unveiling of a remarkable addition to the world of motorcycles as TVS unleashes the dynamic Apache RTR 310, promising an exhilarating ride and an exceptional blend of style and performance.
