For those of us looking forward to snap up a faired sport bike in the near future, the TVS Akula 310 – which is a product of the Indo-German collaboration of TVS and BMW seems to be a very promising option. The motorcycle which was first revealed as a stunning concept at the 2016 Auto Expo has been spotted testing multiple times on the road. But this time we finally have some photographs that are quite clear.
The latest spy shots provide a closer look at the instrument console of the TVS Akula 310. The console looks very similar to the one found on the KTM RC 390/RC 200 bikes. The size of the console is pretty small, which suggests that it could be hard to read at a glance. Being a track oriented motorcycle, information such as lap times, top speed, a shift light, gear position indicator and other extra bits of information are expected to be available on the console.
The TVS Akula 310 production version seems to have lost a lot of the concepts sharp lines and traded it in for a smoother design. This of course makes the bike looks quite big at least in the images we have here. The images also reveal quality clip-on bars with distinctive gold fork caps that top off the inverted forks. The switch gear looks to be a quality affair too. A proper seat that is cut just right for hanging off compliments the well-designed tank that provides a secure lock-on point for the rider while getting a knee down in the corners. The pegs however are rubberised and could diminish the feedback received from the bike.

Other details include a trellis frame chassis which houses the 34 bhp engine developed for the BMW G310R. Dual projectors with LED pilot lights complete the look of the new Akula. Expect the official launch to be in early 2017.
