The TVS U69 (codename) is the second product to emerge from the technology co-operation agreement between the Indian two wheeler maker and BMW Motorrad. To be based on the BMW G 310 R street fighter, the upcoming TVS sportsbike will have a completely different appeal with a full fairing. The idea of two different body styles is to avoid any chances of cannibalization.
Both products will be made by TVS at one of its facilities in India (most likely at Hosur) and needless to say, there would be plenty of common components. Here is a speculative rendering of the U69 fully faired sportsbike which has been created exclusively for Rushlane by Pratyush Rout. Though the rendering is based on the BMW G 310, the artist had no visual reference for the full fairing and hence has used his power of imagination to complete the picture. Mind you, the final product may not look similar. The objective of this image is to merely help our readers envision the product.
The motorcycle will retain the G 310 R platform but the 313 cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine and the 6-speed transmission could be tuned to suit the fully faired setup. The ergonomics too is expected to be significantly different.
The Apache RTR 200 4V is all set to launch tomorrow and the TVS U69 is scheduled to make its world premiere at the Auto Expo 2016 on February 3. Launch however is not expected to be hurried.
