UM Renegade Sport S all set to make its Indian debut at the 2016 Auto Expo
American bike maker UM Motorcycles will be unveiling the Renegade Sport S at 2016 Indian Auto Expo in February. The sports bike will be the third variant of Renegade Commando to hit the market. The company is super excited to start its operation in India and has entered into a partnership with Lohia Auto- an Indian based two-wheeler maker. The company is eyeing to tap the Indian market as it is the second largest two-wheeler market across the globe. The bike maker has announced to showcase three models in 2016 which also includes the recently unveiled Renegade Sport S that made its debut at the 2015 EICMA show.
UM Renegade Sport S is expected to be offered in the price range of Rs 1.5 lakhs (ex-showroom). The sports bike will derive its power from a 279 cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine, producing 26.6 PS of power and 22.76 Nm of twisting force, coupled to a 6-speed gearbox. Coming to the other mechanical details, suspension duties in the front will be handled by telescopic Gabriel forks and the rear makes use of twin shocks. The cruiser will also be equipped with a front disc and rear drum brake. ABS has been excluded from the package currently. The cruiser looks more styled and better finished like the Harley-Davidson Street 750.
The Renegade Sport S looks classy in a dual-tone colour scheme, split seats, stylish large exhaust having black finish, while the tank will have an offset fuel filler cap. It will also be equipped with safety features like anti-flat tyres and a blind spot mirror in the rear that is standard across all models of UM motorcycles. The company marks its presence in over 30 countries having 1500 outlets across the globe. It also caters to neighbouring countries like Bangladesh and Myanmar. The company will start its manufacturing in Lohia Auto’s facility in Kashipur, Uttarakhand, for fulfilling domestic demand and will use it further to expand its export business. The bike maker has announced to establish dealership in metros for the initial phase and will expand gradually.
