GUWAHATI, June 4 - Major two/three-wheeler-maker TVS Motor Company today launched the 2019 variant of its niche Apache RR 310 bike with the additional feature of race-tuned (RT) slipper clutch.
The new variant carries a price tag of Rs 2,27,000 (ex-showroom, Guwahati)
The bike’s latest upgrade enhances the customer’s riding experience as it provides swift gear shifting with low hand fatigue and maintains vehicle stability at high speed during downshifts, especially in corners, a senior company official said here today.
“Crafted for precision, the slipper function of the motorcycle allows rapid downshifts preventing wheel hop and chain whip. The system is also engineered with an assist function wherein the clutch plates lock tightly increasing the clutch engagement force thus resulting in reduced clutch effort,” Sean Collins, Sr Manager, Premium Motorcycles & TVS Racing, TVS Motor Company, said on the occasion.
He further said, “Existing TVS Apache RR 310 customers can also enjoy this new technology..., which can be retrofitted to their motorcycles... for a nominal price.”
