TVS Apache RR 310: Racing Spirit for Everyday Fun

2018 TVS Apache RR 310_WagenClub (1)

Priced at INR 2.05 Lakhs (Ex-Showroom); deliveries to begin by end of December 2017. 

The latest and the most-hottest addition so far to the 2018 year in the country´s motorcycle scene is the TVS Apache RR 310. The much-awaited performance bike from the home-grown bike maker, whose story began from the TVS Akula 310 concept a couple of years ago, is an all-new offering in the segment. With promising package and competitive pricing, the RR 310 is likely to spruce-up the heat in the segment, by taking on Benelli 302R, Kawasaki Ninja 300, and KTM RC 390.

Also Read: KTM Duke 390: Sharp, Aggressive Styling Intensified

Design wise, the new Apache RR 310 is brute and intimidating, but not as we imagined from the impressions of the Akula concept. But one can notice a balanced approach in the way the whole body is crafted. There is high impetus on aerodynamic styling. The LED projector head lamp and taillights are sharp-looking, while the nose down-tail up design presents an aggressive impression for the motorcycle. The RR 310 will be available in two paint shades – Racing Red and Sinister Black.

2018 TVS Apache RR 310_WagenClub (1)

What´s underneath the RR 310 is interesting. It uses an identical Trellis frame as the BMW 310 R, as both the bikes utilise the same platform. TVS claims that the light weight trellis frame offers higher stiffness, improved dynamism at higher speeds and ease of manoeuvrability to wade through the city traffic. Yet, the riding position is slightly relaxed unlike its competitions, thanks to the rear-biased foot pegs and high clip-on handlebars.

Powered by a liquid-cooled, fuel-injected 312.2 cc single-cylinder DOHC engine, the unique reverse-inclined design and compact layout is said to improve its productivity. It is paired to a 6-speed transmission, and generates 34 PS of max power at 9,700 rpm and 27.3 Nm of peak torque at 7,700 rpm. Although the engine is similar to that of BMW 310 R, few unique changes have been carried out to make RR 310 stand apart.

2018 TVS Apache RR 310_WagenClub (2)

The company claims that the new Apache RR 310 can hit 0-60 kmph in just 2.93 seconds, while 0-100 kmph in 7.17 seconds. The top speed is pegged at 160 kmph, thanks to a custom ECU used in this bike. The bike features 41 mm USD fork suspension up front and a monoshocker for the rear, sourced from Kayaba. Brakes includes a 300 mm single petal disc and 240 mm petal disc at front and rear respectively, assisted by dual-channel ABS.

Mahindra Jawa 350: Indian Launch before March 2019

2018 Jawa 350 OHC_WagenClub(8)

Four-stroke Jawa 350 OHC generates 27.73 PS of peak power at 6,500 rpm.

Last year, Mahindra and Mahindra´s subsidiary firm Classic Legends Private Limited (CLPL) became the licensee for the Jawa Moto brand of motorcycles based in Czech. Thus, the come back of the iconic two-wheeler marque that dominated the local market decades back was imminent. Pawan Goenka, MD of the home-grown auto conglomerate, in a recent interaction with MoneyControl, has´confirmed that the first Jawa model will be launched in the Indian market before the end of FY 2018-19, i.e. March 2019. Mahindra is also expected to preview the model at the upcoming 2018 Auto Expo, Greater Noida, scheduled for February next year.

2018 Jawa 350 OHC_WagenClub(6)
Jawa 350 OHC is likely to be the first product under Jawa marque by Mahindra.

So, which motorcycle under Jawa brand are they referring to? It is most likely to be Jawa 350 OHC, a modern classic that was launched in Czech Republic just this year. The first impression that this bikes makes is, perhaps, nostalgic indulgence. It´s the retro-styling of the motorcycle, which in may ways reflects the original styling of the Jawa-CZ 350 of 1970s. This includes lots of chrome embellishments on the bodywork and minimalist design.

Powering the Jawa 350 OHC is a 397 cc air-cooled, single-cylinder, 4-stroke engine that is paired to a 5-speed gearbox. The bike can deliver a max power of 27.73 PS  at 6,500 rpm and peak torque of 30.6 Nm of at 5,000 rpm. Jawa Moto claims that the bike can make-out a top speed 130 kmph.

The suspension system includes 150 mm telescopic forks and 80 mm telescopic shock at front and rear respectively.

Two-Wheeler Insurance: Luck and Magic doesn’t matter!*

Bharti AXA Two-Wheeler Insurance (1)

Superstitious and irrational faiths does not bring you and your motorcycle rides the good charm and protection from untoward happenings, but a comprehensive two-wheeler insurance like that of one offered by Bharti AXA does.

The day when we start asking “Why” and “How” to this-worldly affairs, the society we live in will embark on a much needed scientific and rational progression to make a better world. You may think you are “logical” and “scientific” in attitude and conduct, but unless until you can reason out anything and everything you do or believe in, you are still caught in the blinders of tralatitious beliefs and faiths. Especially for those customary observances and beliefs that are attributed to luck and fortunes that are culturally ingrained in our minds, more so in our Indian context.

When a cat crosses your way en route to an important engagement or work, it is conceived as a bad omen. Shoes are made to hung on to truck bumpers to save it from “evil eyes”, a nimbu-mirchi (lemon-chilli) totem on the rear-view mirror of our car or number plates of bikes for good fortunes. Or the so-called “auspicious” daahi shakkar before an interview, or the bird poop superstition that is believed to prevent people from dangers, as in case of the TVC advertisement below. We never ask to ourselves “Why” and “How”!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iR3u8l59bFw&feature=youtu.be&ab_channel=VishalPatel

This is a critical conundrum that we as society face today. Blind faith and superstitious beliefs debase `cause and effect´ reasoning, something that is fundamental to scientific thinking and progressive attitude. They prevent individuals to think and do things rationally, pay no heed to logicality, and results in irrational behaviour of the society as a whole. A biker prays for good luck before he sets out, but may not like to wear a helmet. A trucker would like to secure himself with ritual superstitions, but may lack awareness to use turn-indicators or dippers at nights. Car and bike owners may pay for coconut and lemon sacrifice before every trips, but decide stingily their road insurance coverage. Not merely the individuals put themselves and their resources at risk, but also play with the life and fortunes of other road users and lead the entire society down. Lack of rational thinking manifests as a social problem.

Higher propensity to risks

Two-wheelers are the one that occupy our roads in majority, are lifeline to everyday commutation of millions of middle-class men and women in India. They are easy to ride and cheaper to buy. But the fact is that, they are highly vulnerable to accidents and thefts than other kinds of vehicles, and takes chances with the life and property of rider or owner. Road deaths out of accidents involving two-wheelers account for at least a quarter every year, way higher than larger cars and trucks. The wide prevalence of potholes and broken patches in our roads, coupled with sheer road congestion in urban areas and the tropical weather of rain and dust, makes motorcycle riders even more susceptible to road mishaps. That is perhaps why bike skidding, bumper crashes, and loss of balance while riding a bike are so common in India that everyone of us would have experienced such mischances at least once.

Bharti AXA Two-Wheeler Insurance (2)

Further, road safety often starts from our own homes. We can neither predict nor determine the behaviour of other road users, nor can we define our destiny with surety. All we can do is to rationally think on how to mitigate one´s risk by acting on essential safe-conducts and precautions, before we hit the road. Helmets for both the rider and pillion passenger can and ought to be the first step, instead of a bird poop! Use of genuine spare parts and components, especially tyres, brake pads and cables, and engine oil can be the next step. Regular maintenance and service will also help ensure road safety and good fortunes while on travel. Obedience to road safety norms and traffic rules while on road is creditworthy too in this regard.

Tangible Protection

Okay, but what if you and your motorcycle face grave risk out of no cause of your own. There are idiots out on road, simply waiting to hurt other users and pedestrians. You could be one of them too! You may even fall prey to other´s irresponsible behaviour on road, may it be rash driving or carelessness while on wheels. Or what if your bike is stolen from a public parking lot? Uncertainties out of such externalities can never be obviated, however rational and responsive you are.  Thus, a comprehensive risk management becomes essential, so as to offer protection from any ensuing financial loses and liabilities out of damages, or to pay for your hospitalisation or even compensate your family if any mishaps takes away your life. The premium you pay is so negligible to the risk mitigation the motor insurance takes care of, for both you and your possible victims.

Bharti AXA Two-Wheeler Insurance (1)

In this regard, Bharti AXA General Insurance Company Ltd, one of India´s leading motor insurance provider, is offering comprehensive and innovative insurance coverage for two-wheelers.  This includes both third-party and own-damage (OD) liability coverage, 24/7 claim assistance and client support, attractive discounts on premiums with No-Claim Bonus (NCB), hassle-free claim settlement with 2500+ cashless garages, and online quote retrieval and policy renewals. You also get add-on covers in Bharti AXA two-wheeler insurance, that includes Personal Accident Cover for occupants and Zero Depreciation cover.

At the end of the day, as a motorcycle rider, all we want is more certainty and control on our inevitable risks.  A nimbu-mirchi or daahi shakkar may merely provide you fake contentment, but not tangible protection. Investing in a comprehensive two-wheeler insurance coverage like that of Bharti AXA is definitely worth it. It is responsive, rational, and ensure justice on road.
