UM Renegade Classic Mileage


UM hasn’t revealed the fuel efficiency of its entire lineup. We believe that this cruiser sport could deliver around 30kmpl in city traffic and around 40kmpl on freeways.


Since it falls in a very special price range, it filters out maximum competition. Nevertheless, it will face prime rivalry with Royal Enfield that maintains a very strong brand presence in India and a few others line Mahindra Mojo.
