Essentially a fully-faired BMW G310R, the TVS Apache RR 310 is the result of several years of development and represents the next step in BMW’s learner rider attack.

We won’t see it on New Zealand roads as a TVS, but the Apache was co-developed by Indian manufacturer TVS Motor and BMW Motorrad. That means the bike you see here is a pretty close look at the yet-to-be-announced G310 RR learner bike from the German juggernaut.

The familiar 313cc single is present, making the standard 25kW and 28Nm. It weighs slightly more, with a claimed kerb weight of 170kg. The chassis is the same steel trellis design as on the G310 R and G310 GS.

Suspension is by KYB, brakes are ByBre branded, a sub-brand of Brembo. There’s an LCD dash, an LED headlight and dual-channel ABS. It certainly looks like a good package, combining a strong engine with modern details but the kicker is the price. At the equivalent of $NZ4500, the Apache seems astoundingly good value for money. But it’s unlikely to be imported here, at least until BMW brings the G310 RR to market.
