"TVS Akula 310 concept racer is a tribute to TVS Racing's 33 years of dominant race heritage", says company's statement.

The India launch of the TVS Akula 310 has been due for a long time. After a series of rumoured launch details, TVS Motor Company has revealed that its first fully-faired bike will see a release in the second half of this financial year. This information is said to be confirmed by TVS’s communications team to an online media portal. While the recent sightings of the bike gave a peek into the changes on the production model, it is believed that the bike is likely to receive a new badge ‘Apache 310’ in addition to the cosmetic changes over the prototype. Just to jog your memory, the Akula 310 broke cover in its concept avatar at the 2016 Auto Expo.

One of the highly-anticipated models in the segment, the TVS Akula 310 is also credited to be the first 300cc bike from the Chennai-based motorcycle manufacturer. With the production version caught on camera lately, we now have concrete details on the model which seems to have received new elements and features. Some of the key highlights could be the ABS on the front wheel, exhaust canister from the BMW G310R, sportier golden yellow paint on the upside down front forks and LED units on the headlamps and DRLs. Read More – Akula To Be Named TVS Apache RR 310S?

Spy Pictures

The latest spy pictures reveal that the bike will come in matte black colour scheme and feature stylishly designed taillamps at the rear. The highly positioned clip makes it road focused vehicle. Up front, there is a wind screen that will act as a shield to rider. Additionally, it gets a new pillion seat and the race-spec exhaust has been replaced by the conventional end can. The carbon fibre body work on the concept form was missing in the production-spec model, instead, it gets a more conventional option. However, the aluminium trellis sub frame is expected to be retained. For power, the fully-faired bike will use the 313cc, single cylinder unit paired to a 6-speed gearbox for transmitting power.

TVS Akula 310 India Launch

First previewed at the 2016 Auto Expo last year as a concept, the bike pays tribute to 33 years of TVS Racing history. Since then, the bike has been caught on camera several times, giving inkling of the exterior elements and new features. A latest report claims that the company is on track for the Akula launch and it will go on sale in the second half of this fiscal year. That means, it will hit showrooms before March 2018. Though, we still await an official confirmation from TVS.

TVS Akula 310 Price in India

Minimum Rs 1.50 lakh
Maximum Rs 1.80 lakh

TVS will foray into the 300cc space and fully-faired bike segment with the all-new Akula 310. The bikemaker’s Hosur-based manufacturing facility in Tamil Nadu will be the production hub of the bike. This will surely benefit Akula 310 in terms of pricing. Other factors that will aide cost cutting is the absence of features like pro camera mount at rear and few others. It is however expected that the Akula 310 price could be as low as Rs 1.5 lakh and go up to Rs 1.80 lakh.

TVS Akula 310 Specifications

Engine 313cc, 4-stroke, single-cylinder, water-cooled
Max Power 33.4bhp @ 9,500rpm
Max Torque 28Nm @ 7,500rpm
Transmission 6-speed

The new Akula 310 will source its power from the 313cc, single cylinder, fuel injected engine that will also be used in the upcoming BMW G310R streetfighter and G 310GS motorcycles. While it will share the engine with BMW models, the power figures will vary on the BMW models. On the Akula, this motor will churn out a top power of 34bhp at 9500rpm and 28Nm of torque at 7500rpm. Paired to a six-speed gearbox, the fully-faired bike will come with high rev peak capability.

TVS Akula 310 Mileage (Expected)

City 25kmpl – 28kmpl
Highway Around 36kmpl

Power source for the bike will be the 313cc, single cylinder engine, which is benefited with fuel injection technology. With this powerplant, the Akula 310 is expected to return decent fuel economy. The estimated mileage in city conditions is rated at 25 to 28kmpl opposed to the 35kmpl on highways. Read About – TVS X21 Concept

TVS Akula 310 Design

Designed with inputs from TVS’ race drivers that come under TVS Motor Company and BMW Motarrad joint venture, the highly-anticipated Akula 310 pays homage to the company 33 years racing history. While the production-ready version retains most of the design and styling elements from its concept avatar, TVS has added and remove some of the features for a more aggressive look. The new TVS fully-faired bike is based on the highly stiff space frame chassis and aluminium sub-frame. Though, the production model misses out on the carbon fibre body work that we have seen on the concept version.

The cast alloy swing arm on the bike not only aide handling but it also enhances ride quality. In addition to the above-mentioned elements, the bike will also get twin headlamps and daytime running lights with LED units. There will be a tall windscreen in front that will act as a protection shield to the rider during wind bursts. The golden yellow paint on the upside down front forks adds to the sporty flair. Other bits like the exhaust canister have been borrowed from the BMW G310R, built jointly by TVS and BMW. The raised positioning of the clip on in turn works in the favour of the bike, making it more road focused.
