Lately launched TVS Apache RR 310 which was introduced in the lineup at an introductory price sticker of INR 2.05 lakh, has got a price hike of INR 8000. The automaker did not make any official announcement ahead of increasing that much amount in the pricing of brand’s one and the only sportbike. However, it was expected as the company did not reveal the timeline until when the bike will continue to be on sale at the introductory pricing. Though the anticipated hike was under INR 5000, this quite steep raise in price is surprising.
In different states, the Apache RR310 price varies in the range of INR 1.99 lakh to INR 2.23 lakh (ex-showroom). In Kerala, it is available on sale at INR 1.99 lakh. Whereas, the states like Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Telangana and Pondicherry is retailing the motorcycle at an amount of INR 2.13 lakh.
The states including Assam, Chandigarh, Chhattisgarh, Goa, Gujarat, Jharkhand, Karnataka, Orissa Punjab, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal are rolling out the RR at the costlier price tag of INR 2.23 lakh.
The Apache RR310 shares underpinnings from the BMW G310R. Besides being manufactured at brand’s Hosur based facility, the motorcycle carries the most expensive price tag in the TVS’ lineup.
