The TVS Akula 310 will arrive Indian shores as Apache RTR 300 towards the end of this year.
TVS Motors has recently teased its upcoming race inspired motorcycle Akula 310 on its official Twitter account. The bike was earlier showcased at 2016 Auto Expo in February and was one of the most attractive two-wheeler concepts present at the biennial event. If some reports are to be believed, the production spec Akula 310 will come as TVS Apache RTR 300 and is expected to hit markets by the end of this year.
TVS has used the official TVS Apache RTR Twitter handle to advertise the motorcycle, which hints that the RTR 300 speculation might turn into a reality. Also, the social media post flaunts of numerous technical benefits that the Akula will be equipped with. These include race spec aluminium trellis frame that would be used first time on a TVS production motorcycle, a liquid-cooled 310cc DOHC engine, RAM air induction and fish like Gill vents to ensure a good thermal efficiency.
The upcoming TVS Akula 310 will be based on the BMW G310R that has been developed as the first product under the TVS-BMW Joint venture. As already mentioned, the motorcycle will come powered by a 310cc, liquid-cooled engine mated to a six-speed transmission. The Akula has been coupled to Shark Awareness Day due to its predatory appeal and aesthetics. Additionally, the Akula 310 moniker has also been given a shark inspired look, which is sure to impress the youngsters of this age and time.
If everything goes fine, TVS might bring the Akula 310 by the end of this year. As far as pricing is concerned, the motorcycle would be priced somewhere around INR 2 lakh in order to stay competitive and bring down the market share of its rivals like the KTM RC 390.
