Original Article (12th September, 2016): Thanks to our Facebook fan Meelath Ahamed for sharing photos of the upcoming TVS Akula 310 a.k.a Apache RTR 300. The bike looks promising with its perfect cuts and curves. The camouflaged test mule spotted here comes with a differently shaped front fender, most probably fixed with extra long side panels for pushing the air away from its faired design. The features like USD forks (finished in Golden shade), 5-spoke alloy wheels and thick exhaust can have been carried forward from the BMW G310R on the motorcycle.
The images are clean enough to realize the depth of side panels of the fairing, getting an exact idea of how the motorcycle will look in its production version. The foot pegs have a sporty position while the tail end carries a R15 inspired seat. The motorcycle clearly visualizes its front end with dual projector headlamp having Gloss Black surroundings. Unlike Yamaha, there is a lot of space between both the headlights, most probably holding the DRL’s The front visor is currently squared while it may change after the testing results.
The side fairing neatly surrounds the front headlight fairing and looks more of the super sport class than ordinary faired motorcycles. The tail light is a straight line of LED lights while the production version may also include a tyre hugger for sure. The handlebar is clip-on type, adding more sporty appeal to the already stunning design.
The Akula 310 is powered by 313 cc, 1-cylinder engine producing 33.6 BHP @ 9500 rpm and 28 Nm @ 7500 rpm. It comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The tuning on the Akula 310 can be a bit different from the specs above as they are from the BMW G310R’s engine. Most of the components on both of the bikes would remain the same.
