Closer to its expected launch, Apache 310 spy pics are coming in thick and fast…
The most interesting part for a larger section of motorcycle enthusiasts from the TVS-BMW deal is the prospect of getting affordable sporty motorcycles with BMW’s technology. That has been the single biggest reason for a lot of interest in the Akula – TVS’ version on the G310R platform!
Through an online filing, it has been almost been confirmed that the production name of the motorcycle could be Apache RR 310S! And we now have truckloads of Apache 310 spy pics surfacing every other day on the internet.
In a latest, a new spy pic has been shared by Rushlane where a camouflaged Apache mule has been snapped along with the 2017 KTM RC390 – most probably for benchmarking the two rivals.
Earlier, a video showed a 2017 Duke 390 rider chasing two Apache 310s (probably somewhere in Chennai going by the sign borads) where the spotter says that upon seeing him the Akula riders sped up and the whole sequence has been filmed by the action cam at around 120 kmph. But what you will like here is the overall street presence of Apache 310S (and specifically the low-set front headlamps, which we have been mentioning time and again).
It is not known what two different settings is TVS testing on the motorcycle or if we will have two different versions on offer. Also notice the seating posture, it is more committed than Pulsar RS200 but it is not completely dedicated.
Also visible in this video are the LED DRLs which will probably be given an eyebrow look.

Undisguised pics of the motorcycle have already been leaked earlier which reveal the motorcycle completely.
From the concept Akula to the near-production Apache 310, the motorcycle has gone through a few changes specially at the rear which has been completely revamped. The hollow rear cowl and tail of the concept has been replaced by a flowing riser among other bits. The split seat has a resemblance with the R15 and the (Akrapovic-like) exhaust has also given way to a G310R-like round unit.
We are more curios to understand the tune Akula will come in. While Bajaj has reduced the output of the KTM sourced engine on their Dominar 400, it remains to be seen how low will TVS go!
For starters, Apache 310 will be powered by a single cylinder mill borrowed from the G310R. Premium features include upside down front forks, aerodynamic fairing and radial calipers.
