    TVS AKULA concept racer is a tribute to TVS Racing's 33 years of dominant race heritage.

    Conceived ground up as a track machine, taking inputs from our factory race riders as well as using cutting edge technology we have built a seriously capable racer that can be a winner each and every time it’s on the track. A high performance engine breathing through a forced air fed air box gives the engine a high rev peak capability. This mated to a quick shifting 6 speed gearbox helps it attack from one corner to the other keeping ahead of its competitors.

    The list of equipment is impressive as well as essential starting for USD forks, radial calipers, highly stiff space frame chassis as well as lightweight carbon fibre bodywork. Aluminium sub frame and the cast alloy swing arm keep the dynamics under control and gives flexibility to rider. The bodywork is the result of endless hours in the wind tunnel to fine tune a slippery shape and tucked in race ergonomics. The heat management gills in the body as well as dorsal fin underneath the seat gives it’s a characteristic shape and aids in aerodynamic efficiency. This characteristic shape gives it a shark like look thus giving its name TVS AKULA 310 which means shark in Russian. Other features include a full function digital speedo, on board gyro cameras and a steering damper for additional stability.

    All these features as well as superbly engineered form give it a highly focussed function of winning any challenge on the race track.

    latest updates: Fresh spy pics as on April 25, 2017

    We all have been waiting with bated breath for TVS to launch the bike that they showcased at the Auto Expo 2016, named TVS Akula, which was based upon the 310 cc platform from the TVS-BMW partnership.

    And that wait is about to get over soon. There have been spy pics of the production version of this bike doing the rounds on the internet for quite some time now.

    Now, an xBhp reader has sent us these fresh images of the production-ready 'Akula' and we're told that this bike might be launched in July 2017. A little birdie also told us that this bike will be called TVS Apache 310 instead of Akula. The bike is being tested on the Dyno and has got matte black treatment, but without any decals. The LED (projector?) headlamps also look quite bright!

    So, we leave you with these images of the TVS Akula/Apache 310 for now and will try to get you more updates regarding its launch in India!

    OOgling .... Drooling *picks up jaw and rolls tongue in* Is it too much to ask for a road version that we can buy.
    When I'm on the road, I'm indestructible. No one can stop me... but they try.

                Looks very good. But design somewhat resembles GD250R.

                      This bike being a prototype won't be launched at all. Too expensive to make meaningful numbers from the manufacturer's point of view. They have used the 300cc engine from the BMW bike that TVS is supossed to bring in.

                          Well it is quiet possible that when the G313 is launched, a faired version will also follow. But of course it wont be clad in carbon fiber, but may be plastic in CF stickers..

                            Didn't jangle my nerves that much, looks too jazzy for its capacity.

                            A prototype means the company is thinking along those lines, the actual product if there is one may differ a lot from it and some may not come out at all.
