Indian motorcycle manufacturer TVS could be working on a new RTR for the Indian market, albeit with new changes. After collaboration with BMW to produce the RR 310, it is possible that TVS will graft its engine in the new RTR before Auto Expo next year.
The company could be aiming for a quarter-litre streetfighter carrying its badge after the G310R was given the BMW logo. It is also expected that the RTR 310 will take more elements from the G310R rather than the previous generations of Apache.
The current RR 310 and G310R share every component among themselves apart from the subframe and handlebars. They have a common mainframe, engine, exhaust, fuel tank, suspension setup as well as the braking system. It is safe to assume that TVS will equip the RTR310 on similar lines.
The RTR 310 could have a subframe borrowed from the G310R, which will help the company reduce the rear seat height, making it a convenient daily vehicle. The motorcycle could also get a standard handlebar as opposed to clip-ons found on the current-gen Apache RTR200 4V. This could be done in to achieve a more relaxed rider position. Consequently, TVS could also change the location of its footpegs to make it more front-biased.
While nothing is confirmed yet, the chances are that TVS will showcase at least a concept of the motorcycle in the upcoming Auto Expo next year. Till then, it is best to wait for the company’s official nod for the bike.
