Several publications are reporting that they have confirmed news about the TVS Akula 310 launching on 6th December 2017. Since the plans of launching the BMW G310R has been delayed, this will make the TVS Akula 310 the first model in India to come out of TVS-BMW partnership. Previously, we saw the Akula concept at the 2016 Auto Expo. This prototype garnered a lot of attention at that event. (Read: BMW G310GS unveiled at EICMA)
The internet is flooded with the spy shots of the TVS Akula 310 but we still need to wait for 6th December to give a verdict on look and design. It’s believed that the Akula 310 will share the mechanicals from the BMW G310R. IN the G310R, the 313cc single cylinder, the liquid-cooled engine develops 34PS of power and 28Nm of torque. Since, Akula looks more like a sports bike, it should have a different ECU map with slightly more power.
To tell you a little bit about the design, the TVS Akula 310 will sport a twin headlamp setup, full fairing, and twin step-up seats. The instrumentation will be fully digital. Suspension setup consists of upside-down front forks and a rear monoshock. The stopping power will be delivered by petal disc brakes at the front and rear wheels. When launched, this motorcycle will compete with bikes like Yamaha R3 and KTM RC390. The pricing is expected to be around Rs 2.2 lakh.
