The TVS Akula 310 launch will take place by the end of 2016. The concept which was showcased at the 2016 Auto Expo was built on a carbon-fibre body which will not be carried over to the production version.
TVS Akula 310 concept is one of the most talked about bike at and after the 2016 Auto Expo. It is a fully-faired bike powered by the BMW G310R’s engine with a complete carbon-fibre body which makes it a visual treat. The motorbike was scheduled to go into production in the beginning of 2017, however, latest reports suggest that the company has preponed the production which will begin during the last four months of 2016.
TVS aims at taking full advantage of the popularity the Akula 310 is enjoying by launching it as soon as possible which is expected to happen during the festive season. This is not going to be easy for the Chennai-based automaker as the R&D team will have to test the vehicle with different specifications and the concept will need a lot of changes before it goes into production.
The TVS Akula 310 is powered by the 313cc, single-cylinder engine that is jointly developed by BMW and the Indian automaker. It also does duty on the G310R where it produces 34 HP at 9500 RPM and 28 Nm of torque at 7500 RPM while mated to a 6-speed gearbox. No official information about the Akula is out yet.
The TVS Akula 310 concept also had a number of interesting features such as the front air damper, lightweight aluminium frame, quickshift 6-speed gearbox, clip-on handlebars, USD front forks, gyroscopic cameras, etc. of which many aren’t expected to make it to the production version. When launched, it will take on the likes of the KTM RC 390, Yamaha R3 and Kawasaki Ninja 300.
