Ashwin Ram N P, Ashwin is a guy with a slightly unorthodox perception of everything. His struggle to choose a career path, between art and automotive engineering, has landed him in the field of auto journalism, where he has paved way for himself to practise both.
The BMW G310R would launch prior to that.
RushLane reports that TVS Motor Company has advanced the plan of launching the production version of the TVS Akula 310 owing to the encouraging public response at the Auto Expo 2016. The publication says that the company now intends to unveil the road-going version in Q4 2016, likely in October, and launch it around the Diwali festive season. Codenamed the TVS U69, the motorcycle was first believed to be set for launch in early-2017.
It is unclear to what extent the production model will resemble the TVS Akula concept, but it is believed that it will share the 313 cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine and the alloy wheels with the BMW G310R.
The Akula 310 concept features an inverted fork, twin headlamp provision, tall visor, split handle bars, ram-air intake, steering damper, fully digital instrument console, split seat architecture, and an aluminium trellis sub-frame.
The road-going version of the Akula (which translates to Shark in Russian), will compete with the likes of the KTM RC390, Yamaha R3 and the Kawasaki Ninja 300.
