    Default #TVSApacheRR310 launches on 6th Dec 2017 #PureRacecraft

    News Update: TVS teases with video of new #TVSApacheRR310 which is to be launched on 6th Dec 2017. #PureRacecraft




    We have been waiting long 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.

    Earlier, we had shared few spy pics of the testing version of this bike. And finally, TVS has confirmed the launch of its new bike 'Akula', though the actual name will be revealed during the launch event on 6th Dec 2017.

    More details on the launch will be updated here soon. Finally the TVS's 300cc game on!

    This will now be fun! I've heard the brakes surpass expectations! The Motorcycle should be very agile as people were very happy with the G310R's handling! And seems like we'll get ABS variant at launch!
    Cheers

    Most awaited sports tourer in recent memory for sure. Should be an excellent mix of affordability and performance, however, there's one thing that might put off well-built guys----riding ergonomics. Although auto-pun-dits are saying it won't be on the aggressive side, I am skeptical. Anyway, test rides should make the decision easy.

    As far as the spy shots confirm, riding posture is going to be aggressive. But, that should not be a problem.

    Although we cant say for sure, but lately it seems the riding posture has been tweaked in favor of touring purpose.

    On road pricing in the vicinity of 2 lakhs will be apt for this class of machine. This should unsettle the current crop of sub300cc bikes which are priced around that mark.

    If et all the bike churns out around 33-34 ps then this is going to be a major seller in the premium segment.

    Let's see.

    I heard pricing might be around 2.25L on road with ABS.

    Can we book the bike already? Or bookings are yet to start?

    Since I saw this massive bike on the Hosur road few months ago, I kinda dig the muscular looks like the Ducati SuperSport S. It excites your senses and catches your attention like looking at the silhouette of a 650cc super-sport.

    This is undoubtedly a modern masterpiece from TVS and it becomes more clear as they're taking more time testing and fine tuning it increasingly to do away as much initial niggles as possible.

    Should be fun beginner bike and makes more sense to go for this than the hugely expensive and dull(makes power only at the top, no low-end grunt) Ninja 300. I feel Kawasakis's lineup is VFM only from Z650.

    I'm willing to pay as much as ₹2.2 lakh ex-showroom but not more than that. Price it right TVS you have a winner on your hands.
