The fully faired electric bike from Ultraviolette has been spotted in Bengaluru.
Ultraviolette Automotive is a Bengaluru based start-up in which TVS has a 25 percent stake. The F77 is the first model from the company and looks quite a bit similar to the KTM bikes, but that’s where the resemblance ends. The full-LED headlamp set-up, with the DRLs placed at the bottom gives off a mean look to the bike. The USD forks and the sharp styling make the bike an attention grabber, surely if one goes past you, you are going to turn and look at it. The faring of the bike hosts the battery pack and the electric drivetrain underneath it while retaining the sporty look. Also, a digital instrument cluster was spotted on the bike that had a neat finish to it.
The bike also gets dual LED tail lights fitted on the sharp and tidy tail section of the bike. The swingarm of the bike looks similar to the prototype and seems like a single-cast unit. The rims of the bike look like they have got a blue detailing. Also, many EV’s get blue colour highlights to denote that they are electrically powered.
The rims are wrapped up in Metzeler M5’s that are also sported on the KTM bikes. The braking duties are carried by disc brakes at both the ends of the bike. Dual-channel ABS is expected to be be standard on the bike. Suspension duties are handled by USD forks up front and blue-highlighted monoshock at the rear.
The F77 will be placed against the 200cc motorcycles in the market and uses a 25kW/90Nm electric motor. The bike can do a 0-100 km/hr dash in about 8 seconds and boasts a top speed of 140 km/hr. The bike is assumed to have a real-world range of 150 km. It is expected to be priced at Rs. 2-2.5 lakhs and will be launched in late-2019. Initially, sales are expected to be limited in Bengaluru in the first phase.
