TVS has shown the concept that we have all been waiting for. The BMW based motorcycle has been finally revelead in the TVS avatar. It turns out it will the first motorcycle TVS motors that is made in conjunction with BMW that will hit the showrooms later this year too. This is the first motorcycle from TVS that will have a full fairing. The Hosur based manufacturer is calling it the Akula 310.
What is the most attractive part of the motorcycle is the front end. The bike looks great in person and is the most gothic and stunning looking motorcycles of all time in the concept version. The Kulan is entirely made of carbon fibre from front to rear. Something that is outright stunning and looks extremely purposeful. The side panels and the engine belloy cowl are one single piece. The large fuel tank is the other highlight of the motorcycle as it sticks out on the top and is almost square in size.
Other things which are new to this machine is a vertically stacked insturment cluster which reminds us the KTM’ s of the past. The tail at the rear is really high and is raised and houses a special mount to hang the TVS Racing made exhaust which more-o-less looks like an Akrapovic unit. Mechanically, we see the tubular frame seen on the BMW G310R.
The mechanicals are also key highlight and given the fact the concept model has similar traits as the production model when it comes to TVS. We are delighted to see upside down forks and petal discs on both ends along with ABS which the donor bike also has.
Overall, the mechanicals, the engine and suspension on both are going to remain similar when it comes to the TVS bike which it takes from BMW. Expect class leading dynamics, engine responsivness along with safety and fun to ride charactersitc filled to the brim.
