TVS Apache Electric Motorcycle Rendered; Based on BMW G310R
TVS and BMW are collaborating on the development of an electric motorcycle based on a modified version of the G310 platform. TVS Motor Company revealed its plans to expand its collaboration with BMW Motorrad in the electric mobility space a few months ago. This would entail working together to create an electric platform for future electric scooters, motorcycles, and new concepts.
Pratyush Rout has created a digital rendering of TVS’ upcoming electric motorcycle. This electric bike is based on a modified version of the existing 310cc platform and appears to be very similar to the G310R at first glance. However, a closer examination reveals that the design artist has made several subtle changes.
To begin, the TVS Apache Electric Motorcycle (unofficial name) has a slimmer headlamp casket than BMW’s naked streetfighter. It gets the same muscular faux fuel tank as the G 310 R, but with a slightly different shape and the TVS brand logo. The G310 R has a single-piece step-up seat, whereas the TVS electric motorcycle has a split seat configuration.
This version of the upcoming electric bike, like the G310 R, has blacked-out internals, creating a sporty dual-tone theme. The Apache Electric’s alloy wheel designs have also been directly lifted from the G310 R. Instead of an engine and transmission, the electric motorcycle has a large battery pack under the tank.
Another notable feature of this motorcycle is its mid-ship-mounted BLDC motor with a chain drive to the rear wheel. Aside from that, all visual highlights are similar to the G310 R, such as the same handlebar, gold-coloured front forks, and rear view mirrors. Footpegs and the brake pedal have been finished in aluminium.
TVS has not released any specific information about its upcoming Apache electric motorcycle. The bike is still in the early stages of development and will not be available until around 2024. When it is released, it could compete with the upcoming Bajaj Pulsar electric and the KTM Duke electric.
