  • TVS 300CC aka Akula (Faired Motorcycle) spotted

    TVS-BMW's partnership has resulted in the development of the BMW G310R which was planned to be launched in October this year. But unfortunately the launch has been postponed to next year Q1.

    Meanwhile TVS using the same platform is developing a faired motorcycle. In 2016, TVS showcased the Akula concept which was a head turner and also displayed TVS's racing prowess of 33 years.

    Now the production version of the concept has been spotted testing near Bangalore. The bike is expected to have a trellis frame, 34bhp 313cc motor with liquid cooling, 300mm front disk and 240mm rear disk brakes. The motorcycle will also be have ram-air cooling like the smaller 200cc Apache RTR.

              Well I saw 2 of them going like Jet, I am sure they were above 150 kmph, this happened when I was sipping tea in Hosur as a ride break, as far as I have seen the body was similar to that of a R15 v2.0 specially the rear tail part, rear end part of the silencer colour was visible it was golden in colour, colour was visible as the wrapping was not covered in that part lol.Riding Style is not that aggressive it's just Similar to Kawasaki Ninja 300, Yamaha R3. I too saw both of them wrapped in same colour as given in above pics.

                  It looks ugly. No where close to the chiselled looking akula we saw at the expo

                    It is still camaflouged so better watch out for what you say. And the bikes which are shown in auto expo are just prototypes and many things change when the real production starts so that blokes like you and me can afford these bikes.

                    To keep the prices and practicalities and affordability in check, changes has to be done. And this is what has happened with the akula.

                    This bike is still under testing phase, lots of things are still uncovered

                    Cheers,

                      Yowser! That's one ugly looking motorcycle.

                      I'm sure TVS are very proud of what they think they've achieved.

                      Just another substandard motorcycle design if you ask me.

                      Remember the 1990's when the only choice that people in India had when it came to washing detergent was Rin and Vim?

                      Well, the motorcycling scene in India still seems to be in the Rim/Vim era.

                          This seems to be going in the sport tourer direction. People would have complained about wrist aches.

                          Ktms are the only supersports option right now. Don't see any real threat to ktms in near future. I don't know if we will ever have a proper Indian supersports.

                            Bike's key seems to have Honda key chain, TVS seems to take camouflage seriously On a serious note, headlight seems to be a cross between KTM RC and Kawasaki ZX10, might look good on the final product.
