TVS is all set to unveil its performance bike in India in the first week of December, and we can’t wait to see how the production ready-bike will look.

There have been a few leaks reported on the web, but we’re hopeful that the bike, rumoured to be called Apache 310, bike looks identical to the Akula concept which was showcased at the Auto Expo 2016.

The company has rolled out media invites for the big day, where we will get to see the full-fledged version of much-anticipated TVS bike.

The Akula concept, as we know, was designed and created by TVS in association with BMW and the bike is being manufactured at TVS’ Chennai plant.

Back in 2015, a TVS official had said that the market-ready version of the Akula will be 80 percent similar to that of the concept version (missing out on the carbon-fibre body and dynamic tyres).

The full-faired bike is likely to be powered by the same 313cc engine that we get on the BMW G 310R, which means the Apache 310 could pack 34hp of power and 28Nm of torque but tuned differently, like how Bajaj has used the KTM 373cc engine on its Dominar.

TVS had claimed before that the supposed Apache RR310 could be priced under Rs 2 lakh in the country, and we’ll know about that for sure when the bike gets unveiled on 6 December.

It is highly expected that the Apache RR310 will be the full-fairing avatar of the BMW G 310R that will be offered at a more accessible price point than the more expensive naked version, ie: the G 310R. This will put the Apache RR310 line-up against the Bajaj Dominar and KTM Duke 390 among others.

Stay tuned to The Quint for the price, availability and even the name of this bike from the event.
