TVS RTR 300 based on the Akula concept is one of the most anticipated motorcycles of this year. The motorcycle is expected to be launched in July 2017 and finally, the production version of the motorcycle has been caught without any camouflage. The RTR 300 looks sharp and looks very similar to the Akula concept.
The production version pictures caught at a stockyard reveals the dual headlamp set-up that look very aggressive and inspired from the older generation Honda CBR600RR. The headlamp unit gets LED DRLs and LED main lamp. There is a big windscreen to protect the rider from the wind blast. The TVS RTR 300 gets all-digital console, similar to the one shown in the concept Akula. It is vertically stacked. The RTR 300 also gets a big fuel tank with bulges on it. The alloy wheels get Pirelli tyres. There are disc brakes on both the wheels and dual channel ABS is expected to be standard.
The RTR 300 gets clip-on handlebars translating into aggressive seating posture. There are split seats with the pillion seat positioned higher. The motorcycle gets a good looking LED tail lamp. The inverted Omega sign adds unique character to the motorcycle. The RTR 300 has been spied in two colours until now. There is a blue shade similar to the Suzuki’s flagship GSX-R’s colour and a matte gray colour.
The mechanical details are not out yet but the motorcycle shares the same engine that powers the BMW G310R. The single cylinder, liquid-cooled 313cc engine generates a maximum power of 34 BHP and a maximum torque of 28 Nm. The engine will be detuned for the fully-faired motorcycle to give BMW an advantage. The strategy will be similar to the Bajaj-KTM venture.
The TVS RTR 300 will be launched at an estimated price of below Rs. 2 lakh. This will be first fully-faired motorcycle from the TVS brand.
