Each customer has a unique riding style and expression. This platform empowers our customers to customise and personalise their machines as per their requirements.

Additionally, to celebrate four decades of racing pedigree, TVS Motor is offering a special ‘Race Replica’ graphic inspired by the TVS Racing OMC race machines for the enthusiasts.”
Customers will be given options to select from an array of two pre-defined kits, namely, Dynamic kit and Race kit, to cater to their needs. The Dynamic kit includes fully adjustable front and rear suspension that offers multi-level adjustment of preload, rebound and compression damping. This allows the customers to adjust the suspension as per their riding style or given road conditions.
On the other hand, the Race kit includes race ergonomics that caters to race enthusiasts who like to burn rubber on the tracks. This kit consists of a more aggressive and tucked in handlebar; rear set raised footrest, and knurled footpegs, that allows for a higher lean angle on the corners and better straight-line stability. This kit also comes with an anti-rust brass coated drive chain to accentuate the style of the motorcycle.
The company is also upgrading its existing fleet of TVS Apache RR 310 motorcycles with more features. The motorcycle will be equipped with a racier exhaust note with an improved lean angle, and the unique wave bite key. The connected cluster on the motorcycle has also been updated with a host of new features like Digidocs that gives riders an option to store important documents like licenses, RC cards on the cluster via the TVS Connect app. The cluster will also feature a dynamic engine rev limit indicator, day trip meter and over speed indication.
Existing TVS Apache RR 310 customers can also avail some of these features as accessories, namely the race handlebar, race footrest, race footpeg, and new cluster features in the form of software updates, which can be retrofitted to their motorcycles.
