In appearance, the Akula 310 design, both from the front, fuel tank and fairing, strongly supports the aerodynamic package. Inspired by the fish, on the underside of the motorbike made "gills" that serves as an air hole to aid the engine cooling. No wonder when the motorbike is called 'Akula' which in Russian means 'shark'.
