It is a full faired motorcycle with cycle parts resembling the BMW’s naked G 310 R.
The TVS Akula 310, also expected to be known as Apache RTR 310, has been seen consistently in the news section of various Auto portals regarding its spy pics and launch speculations. This time around, after being spotted without any camouflage, it is signalling that the days are not too far when we would see it on the dealerships. Sharing the motor and major parts with the BMW’s G 310 R, it’s a full-faired sports bike which was unveiled at the 2016 Auto Expo.
The bike now looks to be market-ready and it does not differ too much from the concept model showcased earlier. Except for the headlamp, which was a single unit on the showcased model. The engine is the same as its naked sibling being a 313cc, single cylinder, liquid cooled, fuel injected motor. Albeit, the power figures might vary as per the segment. As for the specifications, the rolling rubber could be from Pirelli which will be mounted on the 41mm telescopic forks up front and mono shock at the rear. Petal disc brakes could be incorporated for braking which is the company’s signature element.
On the electronic front, the bike will have to match the ongoing demands with maximum information to be displayed on the digital instrument cluster. Apart from basic figures, it must come with lap timer, top speed and sprint recorder, gear position indicator and service reminder. The tell tail lights reside on the top of the LCD screen, all these information have come from the pictures we have seen some time back.
No doubt it will come with LED units for both headlamp and tail lamp. In the Indian market, the TVS Akula 310 will have to face a few rivals which are already adopted by the riders, among which are KTM RC 390, Yamaha YZF-R3 and Kawasaki Ninja 300.
