TVS is all set to launch is the most anticipated bike, the TVS Apache RR 310 also known as Akula 310 and RR 310S on December 6th. Showcased at 2016 Delhi Auto Expo, which came shortly after the announcement that TVS has teamed up with BMW, the new offering by the India automaker is expected to be powered by the same engine that is used in the BMW G310R.
The bike could be powered by a 313cc single-cylinder engine with liquid cooling, developed by BMW Motorrad, but tuned for power delivery at higher RPMs. It is expected to produce 34 horsepower and 28 Nm of torque and will come mated to a six-speed transmission.
Speaking of the design, the bike takes inspiration from a Shark and hence the name ‘Akula’ which is Russian for Shark. As per the various images leaked on the internet, the new TVS Apache RR 310 gets twin headlamps, a low-nose-high-tail design, disc brakes at front and back, a digital instrument cluster, upside-down forks at the front and clip-on handlebars. We also expect the bike to come with dual channel ABS system, just like its sibling – the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V. According to various reports on the internet, the new TVS Apache RR 310 will be available in two colours – Blue and Red – and will be available in only one variant. Apache RTR 310 is expected to cost around 1.6 - 1.7 lakh.
The Akula 310 will be the company’s way to pay tribute to over three decades of TVS’ racing history and hence, the motorcycle has high expectations to live up to. What could be a deciding factor is how the company prices the Akula 310 at. Especially, since the competition like Bajaj with the Dominar 400 and KTM with the updated RC series are offering great value for money motorcycles.
