    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.

    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

    Cool down mate! I'm sure he didn't mean to offend you or ask you to like the bike.

    I can guarantee that this bike is not going to be launched with TVS badge, with recent news of G310GS adventure and Naked G310R , this surely will be Faired version of BMW mini bike. as earlier reported with this BMW will complete its collection of small capacity bike.

    So it will be G310R, G310GS and G310RR [Akula] , look spied images closely , almost everything in Akula is same as G310R incuding Exhaust , Do you think BMW will allow TVS to put its badge on bike which has 80% of BMW Naked ?

    It will be badged BMW i am sure of it, Lets see how things turn out

    But, the faring looks identical to what we saw in Auto expo. So, I don't think BMW will copy TVS design.

    Are you aware TVS launched a Video showcasing the Akula with TVS branding all over it? Also are you aware that TVS and BMW are in a tech sharing agreement?

    Also in an INTERVIEW WITH VENU SRINIVASAN, CMD, TVS MOTOR

    Q: Given that TVS Motor has a manufacturing base in Indonesia, will the TVS-BMW partnership tap that opportunity to rollout products under TVS and / or BMW brands for the ASEAN markets?
    A: I cannot speak about Indonesia in particular but all new products produced at our plants in India, including the new range with BMW, will be available both in India and globally under the TVS brand.
