TVS Motor Company showcased the G310R based, fully faired concept sport bike today at the 2016 Auto Expo in New Delhi and RushLane
has got the scoop on it. Its name? The Akula 310, Akula
meaning shark in Russian.
A fitting name since the fairing is designed to include gill-vents
for temperature control. Other features includes aluminum trellis sub frame, racing suspension, RAM air induction, carbon fiber and aluminum components. Note that these goodies are on the concept model but they could make their way onto the production model as the TVS Akula 310 will be inspired by this concept bike.
Under the exterior sits a race tuned 310 cc single cylinder engine
but you won’t be seeing this race spec engine in the production variant. What you’ll be getting is the same engine used in the BMW G310R
, a 313cc, single-cylinder, oil-cooled engine with a 6 speed gearbox. The max power output produced by BMW G310R is 34bhp at 9,500rpm with a maximum torque of 21 ft lb at 7,500rpm. You could be seeing the same or similar numbers for the Akula 310.
For those who are interested and living in India, TVS plans to launch the production ready Akula 310 early next year.
