TVS Apache RR 310S (Akula) brochure leaked


Brochure scans of the upcoming TVS Akula 310 have leaked. The leaked images indicate that the production-spec bike might be called TVS Apache RR 310S instead. Earlier this year, the same name was revealed though a trademark document.

TVS first showcased the bike in concept form at the 2016 Delhi Auto Expo. Since then, test mules of the bike have been spotted on many occasions. However, there has been no word about its launch date yet.

The TVS Apache RR 310S has spawned out of the partnership between TVS Motors and BMW Motorrad. The fully-faired bike is expected to be offered with twin-headlamps with LED DRLs, a digital instrument panel, upside-down front forks and a monoshock rear suspension. 

The bike will employ the same 313cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine as the BMW G 310R. On the BMW, this engine produces 33.5 BHP @ 9,500 rpm and 28 Nm of torque @ 7,500 rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed transmission. TVS is likely to offer the engine in a different state of tune. Besides the engine, the TVS Apache RR 310S will come equipped with disc brakes at both ends and it might be offered with ABS as well.
