Despite carrying a rather long name, the TVS Apache RTR 160 Hyper Edge performs just like its name - with an edge.

First released in 2007, the Apache RTR 160 has received a number of upgrades leading up to its current state. And in the five years that it’s been in existence, it’s chalked an impressive list of features that certainly bears noticing.

In terms of styling, the Apache RTR 160 Hyper Edge was designed to reek of attitude, thanks in large part to the fluid racing stripes, the luminous rims, and the race crouch mirrors that epitomize its RTR racing pedigree. Smart-looking aluminum foot pegs also add a touch of class to the bike while the new look silencer canister makes a bold statement to anyone who sees it out on the road. The clip-on handlebars also allows you to be able to bank the bike better, allowing you to play with the curves like nobody’s business.

As far as the engine is concerned, the Apache RTR 160 Hyper Edge comes powered by a 4 stroke, 159.7 cc, single that produces 15.2 horsepower at 8,500 rpm and 13.1 Nm at 6,000 rpm. It may not look like much, but those numbers are more than enough to get you where you need to go in style.

TVS Apache RR 310 = BMW G 310 R ?

Well, atleast 75% of them match spec to spec

Back in 2013, BMW teamed up with TVS Motors in a Euro 20 million partnership to support them with the manufacturing and distribution of smaller capacity motorcycles, starting with the G 310R. TVS also benefitted from this venture by bringing in investments and expertise to further broaden their R&D capability to improve on existing projects and bring in innovations across their product lineup.

The Apache RR 310 is the first fruit of the venture, and it sure promises big to the Indian market. It was showcased as the Akula concept a year ago, and TVS has made justice with the transformation of the production-ready bike.

How much does the Apache sportsbike have in common with the naked G 310 R?

TVS Apache RR 310

A G 310 R with a full fairing kit and a different badge

TVS Motor Company is the third largest two-wheeler manufacturer in India, and the Apache has been the company’s flagship brand since its launch in 2006. The nameplate, which started with the unveiling of a 150cc motorcycle, has spawned into a variety of streetfighters, which somewhat have managed to create new benchmarks when it comes to delivering raw power in a relatively affordable package.

Now, a brand new fully-faired 310 cc sports bike has arrived for the big party and will replace the flagship Apache RTR200 4V. It’s called the Apache RR 310 and has been co-developed with BMW Motorrad.

Based on the G310 platform, the Apache RR 310 carries over the powertrain, suspension unit, chassis, brakes, radials and the exhaust from the entry-level naked German. Wearing a full fairing silhouette, first ever at TVS, it might as well make it off as the next BMW G310 RR.

Expect BMW to get it to our shores since TVS has no plans to cater other than the huge Indian market for now.
