TVS Akula 310 Price in India

Expected Lower PriceINR 1.75 lakhs
Expected Higher PriceINR 1.95 lakhs

*Expected Price

TVS should price the Akula 310 at about INR 1.75 lakhs to INR 195 lakhs (on-road). Now, the only challenge is that the Bajaj Dominar 400 is a lot more cheaper. However, the Akula shall get a lighter body, which will make it more powerful and expensive than the Dominar. The new TVS Akula 310 will be a good enough bike for the track riding as well. It is a bit too early to come to any conclusion on the pricing of this bike, but it will be certainly with a good value for money package.

The fully faired bike should make its entry into the Indian car market and this will be the company’s first 300cc bike

TVS Akula 310 Top Speed

EngineTop Speed
313cc145 km/hr

We reckon the top speed of this new 313cc motorcycle should be about 145 km/hr. This will make it a good option to consider for city riding. TVS will look at pricing this bike under cutting the BMW G310R. This is the only it will be able to sell more than them. And the other important aspect is the pricing somewhat in the range of Duke 250. This will attract a lot more buyers to the TVS range of dealerships. In this manner, the company will be able to pull many KTM potential buyers towards its brand adding more enthusiasts to its list.

TVS Akula 310 0-100 km/hr

This new TVS bike should have a 0-100km/hr is about 7 seconds. This should be a around that of the BMW G310R. The Beemer does it in 6.8  seconds, so we reckon, the TVS’ number should be close to 7. This will be the same engine, chassis with some difference in the tuning. These new bikes won’t be at par with the KTM RC390 as the engine is smaller. As the bike should be a tad heavier and at the same time, it has a smaller engine also.

TVS Akula 310 Design

TVS Akula310

In terms of design, the new Akula 310 will have a full fairing design. There shall be a lot of design elements that shall be shared with the concept model. However, TVS Akula 310’s production model will have some change. We aren’t certain if the aluminium sub-frame will be used on the production version. If that happens then the new bike will have amazing performance. This will mean that the new bike is super light in weight.

The bike will even have cast alloy swing arm that will enhance the handling. The aerodynamic efficiency of the bike improve the performance. The dorsal fin and heat management gills will help to improve the cooling. There will be a complete digital speedometer and USD forks and even radial callipers. The TVS Akula 310 looks like shark from the side profile. The images of the production version of the TVS Akula 310 has been leaked and it clearly seems that the design has now been sobered down. The bike doesn’t just look appealing at the same time, it seems to look bigger than other 300cc bikes, at least in the images. There is a neat windshield too, we reckon the seating will be bent one, just like sports bikes

TVS Akula 310 Engine and Transmission

A new 313cc single-cylinder engine powers the TVS Akula 310. This engine shall deliver 34bhp of power at 9,500rpm while the torque shall be 28Nm at 7,500rpm. This torque will be transmitted though a six-speed transmission. As this is a single cylinder engine, it will be more torque. However, as this is a full fairing bike, the engine will be tuned for smoother acceleration. This engine has been designed and developed by BMW and TVS has tested and tweaked it for the Akula 310. There will be some engines in the characteristics of this engine as TVS would have made it more smooth and linear for daily riding. As this is a fully-faired bike, this will have lesser torque and high revs.

The TVS Akula 310 will have a six-speed transmission. This box should be smooth and easy shifting one. The clutch will be soft too. The positioning of the gear should be a bit behind the seat to make it more like a sports bike seating.

TVS Akula 310 Competition

TVS Akula 310 shall compete directly with the KTM RC 390. It will also be a competitor to the Kawasaki Ninja 300 and the Yamaha R3. Thought latter two are twin cylinder machines, they are full faired bikes like the Akula. On the other hand, the other competing bikes include the BMW G310R, Mahindra Mojo, Bajaj Dominar 400, Yamaha FZ25, KTM Duke 250 and Duke 390. TVS is doing exactly what Bajaj has done, offering global technology at a highly affordable pricing.
