If reports are believed, TVS Motors will surely launch the Akula 310 in the Indian market before its Indonesia debut, probably anytime before April-2017.

The Akula 310 is the third product to be based on this platform, apart from BMW – G310R and G310GS.
The production-spec Akula 310 unlike the concept displayed at the 2016 Auto Expo, will feature a conventional fairing done up in either fiberglass or ABS plastic, sporting a conventional paintjob, probably in a matte finish. Other features include a twin LED projector lamps, dual channel ABS, Pirelli tyres, split seats, stubby silencer, USD front fork, mono shock rear, digital instrument console and devil horn-shaped LED taillamp.
The Akula 310 will source power from the same motor as seen on the TVS-BMW G310R. It will be the a 313 cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, which is mated to a 6-speed transmission. Claimed a maximum power of 34 PS at 9,500 rpm and 28 Nm of peak torque at 7,500 rpm. Apart for the engine, a few other elements such as the brakes, suspension setup and the frame will also be borrowed from the BMW G310R and BMW G310GS.
