Asserting that The roll-out of TVS Apache RR 310 "is the culmination of years of honest efforts", Mr. Radhakrishnan said that adding that the new bike "is a testimony to our racing DNA and R&D (research and development) capabilities".

During the launch, a TVS spokesperson said that a RR 310 race series, called the RR Cup, will be launched to encourage RR 310 to take the bike to the limit in the safety of a racetrack.
