The TVS Apache RR 310S (Akula) promises to be a very fast bike. The sportsbike from TVS Motors is likely to have a top speed close to the 160 Kph mark. The bike’s just been spied testing, doing well over 140 Kph. The person who shot this video was doing about 140 Kph in his car, and reports that the Apache RR 310S simply sped away from him. Here’s the video (contains explicit language).
Doing such speeds on public roads is very dangerous. CarToq in no way encourages such riding and driving. Meanwhile, this is not the first time that the Apache/Akula 310 has been spied doing such speeds. A few months ago, there was one more video showing the bike doing over 160 Kph. In that video, which we’ve listed below, the Apache continued to lead a Bajaj Dominar, which itself was doing 140 Kph+.
Coming to the motorcycle itself, it’s likely to be launched soon, and will be the most expensive two wheeled offering from TVS Motors in India. A flagship model, the Apache/Akula 310 shares many parts including the engine and platform with the BMW G 310R. Bookings for the bike should open soon.
The bike is expected to be priced well below the 2 lakh rupee mark. In India, it’ll take on the KTM RC 390. Like the RC 390, it’ll be a track-focused machine that can also be used on a day-to-day basis. TVS Motors is said to have invested a lot of on-track development into the Akula/Apache.
Delving into the specifications of the motorcycle, it uses a 310 cc, four stroke, liquid cooled-single cylinder motor. On the BMW G 310R, this motor makes 34 Bhp-28 Nm. It remains to be seen if the same state of tune is offered on the Apache/Akula. Judging by the speed of the bike, it’s quite likely though. A 6 speed manual gearbox will be standard, and so will be ABS.
