The production-spec TVS Akula 310 has been envisioned in a speculative rendering created by Pratush Rout exclusively for Rushlane.com. The company’s upcoming flagship product will derive its styling inspiration from the Akula concept which world premiered at the Auto Expo in February.
The Akula is the BMW G 310 R‘s Indian counterpart and as per the technology cooperation agreement between the two brands, BMW took care of the engineering and development aspects of the platform while TVS is in charge of manufacturing both motorcycles in India.
The fully faired compact supersport motorcycle derives its inspiration from what TVS describes as “the deadliest predator” – the shark (Akula is Russsian for shark). As the name suggests, the design is super aggressive with sharp fairing panels and a tailpiece.
It has to be noted that this is a speculative rendering and hence the designer has used his imagination to fill up the black spaces. The objective is to help the audience envision the end product.
The design highlights include twin headlamps, a tall windshield, edgy panels and fuel tank, split seats, red-painted trellis chassis, LED taillights and meaty tyres. The suspension system is constituted by USD front fork and rear mono shock.
The production-spec TVS Akula 310 would borrow its powertrain from the G 310 R but the outputs are most likely to be different.
