2) TVS Akula 310 (Apache RTR 300)

Expected Ex-Showroom Price: INR 1.80-2.00 Lakh

Expected Launch: Early 2017

Also dubbed as the upcoming Apache RTR 300, the Akula 310 carries the same engine as the BMW G310R. Like all other brands, TVS may also lower the power and torque stats for the Akula, thereby bringing the cost down by even skipping many of the options being given on the G310R. The Akula 310 is a fully faired sport bike, displayed last at the 2016 Auto Expo with a carbon fiber body.

Akula was even the most attractive bike at the show while its name Akula means Shark in Russian language. It will be definitely heavier than the G310R while its aerodynamic body will help it recover the loss of power due to its weight.

It has been downgraded from the KTM specifications, producing just 34.5 BHP @ 8,000 rpm.

The max figure of 43 BHP is attained on a KTM bike at around 9,500 rpm while the Pulsar has been made with an intention to drive at lower rpm’s and highway speeds. It would be a bit heavier but for those who are not strictly interested in 0-100 kmph times, it would be a bless for everyday riding.
