The bike looks production ready, and was caught being dyno tested.
It has been well over a year since we got our first look at the carbon-fibre clad Akula at the TVS stall during the 2016 Auto Expo. Several spy pics of the bike in various stages of development have since surfaced, and we have now come across what seems to a production-ready example in matt black, sans stickers, being dyno tested.
Of course, TVS have ditched the carbon fibre bits to keep costs in a reasonable realm, and the bike in these pics sports a regular plastic fairing, a tall screen to aid aerodynamics and keep wind blast off the rider when in a racing crouch, sleek twin LED headlights and an innovative tail lamp design.
We still do not know if this bike will be christened Akula 310, Apache RTR 300 or some other moniker that we haven’t heard yet; but names are not that important, and we can’t wait to get our hands on one.

We came across this image of what could be the next iteration of the venerable Hayabusa
While we have been looking forward to the next-generation Suzuki Hayabusa a magazine in Japan has printed a picture has printed this picture, which could give us some insight to what the new bike could look like.
The first thing that strikes about this picture is the sharp triangular headlight and daytime running lights, flanked by those large angular air scoops. The front end looks a lot more aggressive than either of its predecessors, and although the bike still retains its ample girth, we can expect some serious weight savings over the previous model. We can also see the large Brembo Monobloc on the front, and are hoping that Suzuki go ahead and give their flagship sport tourer active suspension at both ends. Expect power from the new engine to exceed 200 PS, which will be tamed by a comprehensive electronic safety net in the interest of keeping riders out of trouble.
