G310R Based Sport Bike Revealed



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.

The front cowl looks odd. Probably because it's lacking headlights.

Even if it had headlights that wouldn't change it much at all. You can already sort of imagine how it'll be incorporated in.

Seems to also have the same suspensions and brakes as the BMW G310R. Going to be interesting to see what they retain from the concept model in the production model. Think they're going to start production near the end of the year so we should see it before then.

So this company just bought the rights from BMW so that they can use BMW's engine in their own bike?

Now, thinking about what else can make its way into production, those gill-vents seem doable, too easy not to do although they're said to serve a real function. Much easier to carry over that than anything else on the concept.

More of a shared engine. BMW produces the g310r in the TVS plant and TVS probably benefited from the deal with the engine and the income from the g310r being produced there.

So they have joint ownership of the plant and produce both bikes there, and they both use the same engine?

makes total sense for the plant. That gives them do much extra stuff to do, and they can be efficient at it too.

Only makes sense when starting production on this scale, they're smart to not jump right into spending more than they need on production infrastructure.

Probably saved a lot by sharing an engine even if the Akula body is different.
