A speculative rendering of the TVS Akula 310, based on the up-coming BMW Motorrad G310R, has been posted on rushlane. The Akula 310 was shown at the recent Delhi Auto show, where it garnered strong interest from visitors.

Apparently destined for the Indian market under an agreement between BMW Motorrad and its local partner TVS, the Akula 310 uses the engine, frame and rolling gear from the G310R, as well as engineering design from BMW Motorrad, while TVS will manufacture both the G310R and the Akula.

While not many details are known about the Akula 310, the show model came clad in carbon-fibre fairings, with sharp, angular styling reminiscent of the S1000RR. The 2016 BMW Motorrad G310R uses a single cylinder 313 cc liquid-cooled motor with four valves and two overhead cams.

The cylinder is tilted towards the rear of the bike, and the cylinder head is reversed, placing the EFI throttle body in front with the exhaust directed out the rear. The engine produces 34 hp at 9,500 rpm and 28 Nm of torque at 7,500 rpm. The G310R’s unladen weight is 158.5 kg and it comes standard with ABS.

There are no details about the pricing of the G310R, nor any further information about the Akula, and when, or if, it will make it into production.

What do you think? Is this BMW’s and TVS’ answer to the Kawasaki Ninja 250, Yamaha R-25/R-3, Honda CBR250R and the KTM RC250/390? Leave a comment with your thoughts and opinions below.
