From Honda to Bajaj, Colour update or as the Motorcycle Industry likes to call it “Graphical Update” has been the Ultimate tool for Manufacturers to justify releasing a “new” model of the same bike. It has become nothing short of a half-baked attempt to lure in more customer, in order to hand over them the same old product. We think its about time that this whole “process” must update itself, as no longer a simple colour update supports the definition of a revised Motorcycle.
Earlier the crown of the best supersport in 300-400 cc range was associated with KTM’s RC 390 but the recently launched Apache RR 310S offers almost the same performance at a better price point. Now, instead of just comparing the specs, let’s compare their everyday functionalities and decide which one is better worth your money.
I personally, don’t think that it’s a great idea, as TVS is one of the few companies out there that believes in innovation. They rely on proper upgrades instead of just slapping a fairing on a naked model and calling it a super sports.

The motorcycle after lots of testing was launched in the Indian market and was finally named the Apache RR 310, which is a little disappointing when compared to the fancy name Akula.
I'm Tharun currently working as a web designer and I'm a hardcore motorcyclist assuming the fact that not as hardcore as real bikers but at least to an extent. I watch a lot of motorcycle related stuff on the internet follow a lot Motovloggers and reviewers. I love anything that is fast enough to classify it perilous.
It was all started way back in September 2015, when I was contemplating to get myself a new bike after complaining of severe back pain. I'm 6"2' and frankly speaking, a scooter doesn't go well with tall guys. So with that in mind, I decided that I would be looking for a 150cc bike that had a comfortable rear seat.
Hello friends, I am Sabi from New Delhi and here is my long-term ownership review of Apache RTR 160 aka “Beast” post 12,500 kms. I had purchased the Apache back in September 2014 after selling my 3 years old Bajaj Discover 100cc.
