TVS Akula 310: The most anticipated racing bike of the year, the TVS Akula 310, which has been showcased at the Delhi Auto Expo 2016, has been well received by the biker enthusiasts in the country. The production ready Akula 310 which will be launched as TVS Apache RTR 300 is likely to get a sooner launch date because of the overwhelming response from the Indian bikers.

TVS has already started testing the highly performance bike on Indian roads and the spy shots of the bike is more than enough to prove that the company is all geared up for the launch event. The company is expected to start its production by the end of the year. As per reports from reliable sources, TVS will b launching the racing bike in the first quarter of 2017.

Speaking to media, TVS Motor’s CFO S G Murali said, “We will launch the first product fron TVS-BMW tie up by February or March 2017.” The Akula 310 has been designed with the expert advice from the company’s race drivers and BMW Motorrad association.

BMW will also be launching its fully-faired BMW G310 R in April 2017. Both racing bikes have been designed and tested with the collaboration between the two companies.

While the production ready model of the TVS Apache RTR 300 is yet to be revealed, however, the spy shots of heavily camouflaged model indicates that the bike is going to be a highly-performance racer. The racing bike has been designed with the help from the company’s racer drivers and BMW assistance.

TVS has high range of Apache models in their lineup, yet the company intends to take on the likes of the highly performance and powerful bikes like KTM 390, upcoming Bajaja 400cc superbike, and above 300cc superbikes.

The TVS Akula 320 concept is dedicated to the company’s 33 years of racing heritage. This racing machine is based on an exceedingly hardened space frame chassis, and uses heaps of lightweight carbon fibre parts and an aluminium sub-frame. What further enhances its handling and drivability is the cast alloy swing arm that keeps up dynamics control, as well as gives adaptability to rider too.The aerodynamic efficiency comes from the dorsal fin and heat management gills that are fitted under the seat and in the body frame respectively.

Highlights like on board gyro cameras and a full-digital speedometer are also on offer. There is a steering damper for extra stability. The bike also comes equipped with USD forks and radial callipers. With characteristic shape and design, the TVS Akula 310 looks like a shark.

The TVS Apache RTR 300 should be as aggressive as the original Akula 310, however, we could expect a lot of changes to the production street model as it has to qualify as road-legal.
