Apache RR 310 S vs Kawasaki 300 or vs any bike is important now. Apache RR 310 is the most awaited bike in India from last 2 Yrs. TVS Apache 310 was introduced first time in Auto show as a concept bike with the name TVS Akula. In this article, we will compare Apache RR 310 vs Kawasaki Ninja 300 vs Benelli TNT 300 vs Dominar 400 vs Yamaha R3.
According to recent reports and some leaks document, we have news that TVS applied patent for their much awaited Apache RR 300 S. Earlier TVS introduces this concept bike as Akula, but now somehow scenario is changed and TVS files patent with the name Apache RR 300 S.
Some years ago this segment was full of opportunity, but nowadays you can’t say this. Today this segment is bit crowded and it will hard a bit for Apache 300 to make space comfortably.
Undoubtedly, only the name ‘Apache’ will enough to relive the Racing DNA of Indian youth but because there is a lot of competition so the comparison is important.
Comparison of Apache RR 300 vs other bikes of approx. the same segment like:
- Royal Enfield 350
- Mahindra Mojo
- Kawasaki 300
- Benelli TNT 300
- UM Renegade Sports S
- Yamaha YZF-R3
Pricing for this flagship TVS bike is not announced yet, but as per the brand history and its pricing strategy this will not price more than the Dominar.
Bajaj and TVS both are the Indian manufacturers and generally, they try to take down each other every time. Apache and Pulsar both bike is stylish and value for money and both have different Fanbase. At present Pulsar 200 RS is the flagship bike in Pulsar series and Apache RTR 200 in the Apache Series. Bajaj didn’t launch the Pulsar of more than 200cc, Pulsar SS 400 is in the pipeline but there is no official announcement and Pulsar Fans have to wait a bit long for any good news for Pulsar SS.
Apache RR 300 S will obviously a very big step to take down the Pulsar but, it’s a very big question that can it take down the Pulsar series and How Bajaj will respond it. Apache RTR 200 was launched after 2 yrs. Of launching of Pulsar 200 RS but it fails to perform as per expectation. It’s FI version was also in pipeline but the cause of a lot of projects and partner bike’s production (BMW G 310), it got delayed and gets shifts every time. Now, TVS gives hint that FI (Fuel Injection) version will launch soon in market.
OK, now let’s start the comparison ( Apache RR 310 vs):

Here we can see that Apache has really good breaks in comparison with other, even from the twice of the price of the bikes. We all know Dominar has very powerful headlamps and really good tourer capabilities, if we will talk about Apache RR 310 vs Dominar. Dominar can’t be beaten in tourer capabilities, but what about riding quality?
Kawasaki and Benelli here too for superb riding quality and unmatched performance. We already have compare Kawaski with KTM Duke and RC 390 but riding quality is unmatched. Here one thing is important that we can’t compare the Apache for riding quality, because that is yet to launch. We know about riding quality and comfortability of rest 3. In my personal experience, Kawasaki and Dominar are the first 2 bikes for this parameter.
