UM 230cc engine is under development, will power a new cruiser bike which is set to make its debut at the 2018 Auto Expo.
UM is developing a new engine that will displace 230cc and power a new cruiser bike (yet-to-be-named) that is set to be unveiled at the 2018 Auto Expo. According to sources, the 230cc engine will be air-cooled and has been specifically developed to bring down the pricing of the UM bikes to the lower side. The new powertrain is likely to output around 19 HP of power.
The new cruiser bike will share most of its underpinnings with the current Renegade range, however, there will be differences in styling that will make it stand apart from the current portfolio of bikes. The company intends to grab good volumes with the new 230cc cruiser as it now has a considerable number of dealerships across the country. The Renegade Sport S is currently the most affordable bike in UM India’s line-up of bikes priced at Rs. 1.59 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi). The bike comes powered by a 280cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled and fuel-injected engine which produces 25.15 PS of power and 23 Nm of torque. The motor is mated to a 6-speed gearbox.
The company plans to develop bikes between 300-700cc for the Indian market.
