TVS Akula 310 India Launch
The bike was first showcased at the 2016 Auto Expo last year as a commemorative concept to TVS’ racing history. Since then, the bike has been caught on camera several times, giving inkling of the exterior elements and new features. With the production version spied for the first time in undisguised form, the launch seems imminent in the coming months. While we still await an official confirmation from TVS, but it is expected that Akula 310 could launch in July.

TVS Akula 310 Design
The highly-anticipated Akula 310 has been designed with inputs from TVS’ race drivers that come under TVS Motor Company and BMW Motarrad JV. As mentioned in the beginning, the concept version of the bike was a tribute to the company’s racing history that date back to 33 years. While the production version carries over most of the bits from the concept version but TVS has added and remove some of the elements for a more aggressive look.built on the highly stiff space frame chassis the high-performance bike misses out on the carbon fibre body work seen on the concept version, though the aluminium sub-frame has been retained. The cast alloy swing arm on the bike not only aide handling but it also enhances ride quality. In addition to the above-mentioned elements, the bike will also get twin headlamps and daytime running lights with LED units. There will be a tall windscreen in front that will act as a protection shield to the rider during wind bursts. The golden yellow paint on the upside down front forks adds to the sporty flair. Other bits like the exhaust canister have been borrowed from the BMW G310R, built jointly by TVS and BMW. The raised positioning of the clip on in turn works in the favour of the bike, making it more road focused.
