India’s fastest TVS Apache RR 310 sets a new record with a top speed of 195 km/h.
TVS Racing’s 10-time INMRC champion Jagan Kumar recorded an impressive quarter-mile time of 11.523 seconds in the drag race. At the same time, KY Ahamed finished second with 11.996 seconds. This time, the biggest change in the TVS Apache RR 310 was its engine. The power output of the engine used during the race is almost double that of the original road bike.
The TVS Apache RR 310 dragged by a drag made its debut in the Valley run race. It recorded a new record doing the standing quarter mile in 11.5 seconds and reaching a speed of 195 km/ph with Jagan Kumar finishing in 11.5 seconds and KY Ahamad in 11.9 seconds. pic.twitter.com/lGERH107rd

Not only this, the weight of the RR 310 bike has also been reduced for this record-breaking run. The racing version weighs 109 kg, which TVS says is 9 kg less than the company’s Asia One Make Championship-winning bike.
The engine of the drag racing version of the RR 310 produced 62 bhp during the race. Since the engine was turbocharged and included an intercooler and electronically controlled boost, the bike reached a speed close to 200 kmph in seconds.
The bike has been fitted with a new suspension. Not only this, TVS claims that different spring rates and damping have been retained in this version. Front forks were kept light and short. TVS has used lightweight materials such as carbon wheels, carbon fiber bodywork and subframe/seat. A new swingarm was installed, which was 30 mm longer. In addition, there was a lighter rear disc and caliper, a smaller radiator, and a smaller and lighter front wheel.
