Team Power Drift has a crazy-ass surprise for you. So hit the like button, subscribe and do not forget to watch this video till the end, What’s up folks. Welcome to PowerDrift. Now it’s been a long time coming and you and I have waited with bated breath. A bike that commemorates 35 years of unrivaled racing legacy. Forged and brought to life with the same ethos and principles that I’ve seen TVS dominate two-wheel Indian Motorsports like no other manufacturer has. It has indeed then been a long time waiting for TVS’s first fully faired most powerful sport bike. The Apache RR 310. Design after the shark, the most feared predator on the planet The stance is aggressive, the bodywork streamlined in the wind tunnel and fit and finish that is befitting of a flagship. And then there the chunky 41 mm forks and monoshock from Kayaba. A die cast aluminium swing arm. Steel braided lines. Bybre radial calipers. Dual channel abs as standard and a 312 CC liquid-cooled heart. All jointly developed with BMW. All this put together revs the Apache RR 310 right up to its 10600 redline pumping enough blood in the veins to hit the 60 kmph mark in 2.75 seconds and 100 kmph in 6.28 seconds. Not bad. What a 312 cc single which pumps out thirty four horses and 27 Newton meters of torque and one which also had that insanely tall 17-42 sprocket setup. So I’m sure with a shorter sprocket setup the ride would be punchier. For the fueling is good I also like the power delivery. It’s very linear and even the gearbox started out a little clunky in the morning, it’s now quite smooth. Now displacement is important and one might say that this doesn’t have a whole lot of that. But for the sort of experience this motorcycle intends to provide to the rider, it’s important that it work to be an agile one which means apart from displacement, engineering is going to play a big role. And I will explain you just that. You see sport motorcycle manufacturers across the globe would want their motorcycle to have a short wheelbase. It would then be more agile, but if the wheelbase is too short then the motorcycle becomes unstable in corners. For that reason they would want a long swing arm. However if you increase the length of the swing arm you would inadvertently, increase the wheelbase of the motorcycle So what do you do in a case like this? Well TVS engineers in this particular case have placed the single cylinder slightly slanted backwards with the exhaust coming out at the back thereby increasing the mass centralization of the motorcycle and also allowing the engineers to pull the swing arm pivot further forward towards the front wheel which then creates an opportunity to extend the swing arm at the back. There you go folks then, you have a motorcycle with a short wheelbase and with a long swing arm. The Apache RR 310. But that’s just a theory. Will it all work? Yes, it works. In the sense it has given the RR 310 a very light nimble handling. It goes into corners very very sweetly without sacrificing on stability. Well when you start pushing? You do feel that the shock is little on the softer side and the bike does move around even though you bump up the preload. But then again I love the feedback from the chassis. What I wish I could see the same about the tires. The grip is not a problem with the Michelin. The problem is the feedback. There’s not enough feedback which gives you the confidence which is very very crucial to stitch together a fast lap time. Speaking of a fast lap time how fast can the Apache RR 310 really go? Good thing then that we brought along a multiple national champion Jagan to stitch together the fastest possible lap on this day. And to catch him live on his hot lap we put sergeant Sagar on his tail. Well it was quite fast, you guys were having a blast. I saw that and Jagan does what? 206 I know that’s not very fast, but that’s definitely not slow. Yeah, I would agree man I mean the bike is born stock with mirrors and everything and also taking into account the track conditions which are not the best with the downpour that we had day before. So it was quite dirty in a few places and Jagan had to take it easy. So on a good day I’m pretty sure he could shave off another 2 or 3 seconds. And the best part is you don’t have to be Jagan to enjoy this motorcycle. From whatever I’ve ridden I think it also has the makings of a really good road bike as well. By the way guys I’m really sorry that we couldn’t get you Jagan talking about the bikes straight and that was because Jagan had a race tomorrow in Thailand so he really had to rush out to catch a flight. But before going out he had this to say about the bike. He says he loves this bike because it can really put in consistent lap times. I second that. Oh, it’s not perfect, No bike is. For the track as I mentioned the suspension is still on the softer side. It doesn’t get a slip and assist clutch like its competition does. The vibrations from the large single cylinder could have been better insulated as the pegs get buzzy at about 6500 rpm and on the roadside the tank for a sportstourer is only 11 liters. Yeah, not the best, the pillion seat is really really small I almost think that I’m nitpicking. Right? Because The other thing I’m actually gonna stick my neck out and say that this is probably the best product we have seen in terms of striking the balance between touring and riding on the racetrack. Let’s say the R3, right. Fantastic motorcycle, I love it. But on the track it was really really soft You know the suspension was too soft. The RC on the other end, It’s a track tool, Great. But on the road it’s miserable. It is so stiff, it heats up. This one slots it right in the middle. If you remember, in our 300 CC shootout the R3 came out as a winner, because it struck such a good balance, and here you are saying that, this strikes an even better balance than the R3. It has one cylinder less, makes less power to compare to the others. But then there’s a price, right? I know TVS have been tight-lipped about the price. It is going priced lower than the RC 390. And there will be quite a bang for buck. Yeah, and also really really versatile. And man, look at it right, it looks fantastic, I think a lot of people will buy just for the way it looks. For sure. Ok Sagar, I’m gonna have to interrupt you here. Okay. Let’s just get this going. Folks, this, it’s only gonna get darker from here, and we are out of time. The Sun is down. We’re not gonna be able to get you any more dope on this beautiful motorcycle. The Apache RR 310. But I hope you enjoyed our short little bust…on the racetrack. But I hope you enjoyed.
