TVS is working on the production model of the Akula 310 (codenamed U69) and IAB has appeared up with the rendering image of the production-ready motorcycle. However, the company has already confirmed that the Akula 310 concept will not see 'light-of-day' before 2017. The Akula 310 triggered an essence of futuristic products from Chennai-based two-wheeler manufacturer, TVS. The motorcycle was honoured for being the best concept bike revealed at the 2016 Auto Expo.
The TVS Akula 310 is the first fully-faired motorcycle that was unveiled by the company to commemorate 33 years of TVS racing. The concept has been designed for circuit racing. To improvise the aerodynamics of the bike, the design of nose and the tail cowl are inspired from the dorsal fin found in sharks. Moreover, the word “Akula” stands for shark in Russian, hence, the name.
The suffix “310” is attached with the name as the motorcycle is basically said to be a fully-faired derivative of the BMW G310R. The rendering image gets road-legal headlamps, well bolstered split seat, raised side mounted exhaust canister, larger brake light, short windscreen and well-proportioned fairing panels.
Unlike the concept, track specific elements, for instance, race exhaust and gyro cam are missing. Needless to say, the gloss black paint job looks spectacular. The front blinkers are etched into the rear-view mirror caps in the rendered image, the production-ready guise is expected to receive traditional fairing mounted units though!

Nevertheless, the production ready version of the Akula 310 is expected to retain major bits such as trellis chassis, clip-on handle bars, USD (Upside Down) fork upfront, tubeless tyres, dual-channel ABS, disc brakes and a fully digital instrument console.
