Our friends at the excellent Rushlane website in India have dug up a great bike of info on the Akula 310 concept – the fully-faired sportbike based around BMW’s G310R naked (pictured below).

The bike was rumoured to be going into production a while ago and now Rushlane has found out that the TVS Motor Company (which has already worked in partnership with BMW on the G310R) WILL rename the project as the Apache RTR300 and IS expected to go on sale later this year.

The Apache RTR300 gets the G310R’s 34bhp liquid-cooled single-cylinder motor and a 6-speed gearbox.

The best news is that the production version is expected to keep its super-racey bodywork, twin headlights but according to their sources Rushlane says that the proddie bike will get a stubby exhaust.

We love the idea of this bike as the ‘cloaked’ BMW S300RR mini-superbike going up against the upcoming Honda CBR250RR, Suzuki GSX-R250, Yamaha R25R and Aprilia RS4 250 next year. What do you think to it?
