Production version is expected to be launched towards the end of 2016.

The TVS Akula 310 factory racer concept made its debut at the Auto Expo 2016. Apart from showcasing the Hosur-based manufacturer’s racing heritage, the sharply styled fully faired motorcycle serves as a precursor to a compact displacement production motorcycle which is based on the BMW G 310 R. Here is a promotional video.

TVS says that the Akula 310 racing machine is a culmination of the company’s 33 years of racing experience. It is equipped with an aluminium trellis frame which is suspended by race-tuned USD front fork and rear monoshock. To keep the weight in check, the engineers have used carbon fibre body panels.

Other salient features include ram-air induction, several aerodynamic features, split seats, performance exhaust, petal discs, and high-performance tyres. Most of these features are expected to be carried forward to the production model.

Production version of the TVS Akula 310 would borrow its 313 cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine from the BMW G 310 R. On board the German street fighter, the motor belts out 34 bhp and 28 Nm of torque. Transmission will be a 6-speed unit.

Both TVS Akula 310 and BMW G 310 R will be manufactured by TVS at a new facility within its Hosur plant. The Beemer should enter production anytime soon while its TVS sibling is slated for its market launch towards the end of this year.
