In the new set of spy pictures, the RR 310s’ design can be seen clearly and it looks very similar to the Akula concept that TVS showcased at the Auto Expo. The near-to-production version of the motorcycle reveals the DRLs integrated into the headlamps.

The headlamps will also get full LED set-up similar to Bajaj Dominar 400 and all-new Duke 390. The headlamps remind of the older generation Honda CBR600RR.

There is a big windscreen above the headlamps. The Apache RR310S also gets a vertically stacked digital console, similar to the one seen on the concept model. The motorcycle also gets a big fuel tank with bulges on it. TVS has started offering Pirelli tyres and the Akula will also come with soft-compound Pirellis. The motorcycle gets disc brakes with both the wheels while ABS is expected to be standard.

The Apache RR310S will be the fully-faired version of the BMW G310R. The riding position is very aggressive with clip-on handlebars and lower seat. The motorcycle also gets split seats with higher pillion seat. At the rear, RR310S gets LED taillamp set-up. There is an inverted Omega shaped tail lamp that gives it a unique identity.

The mechanical details are not known yet but the motorcycle shares the same engine with the BMW G310R. The single cylinder, the liquid-cooled 313cc engine generates a maximum power of 34 Bhp and a maximum torque of 28 Nm. The engine is detuned to give the BMW G310R an advantage. TVS-BMW will follow a similar strategy like Bajaj-KTM where TVS will help manufacturer smaller capacity motorcycles for BMW in India.
