2017 UM Renegade Sport S comes with a more refined BS4-compliant engine boosted with FI technology.
United Motorcycles (UM) has introduced the fuel-injected 2017 UM Renegade Sport S BS4 at Rs 1.57 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The American bikemaker has also updated the Renegade Commando cruiser with BS4 FI boosted powertrain in India. UM claims that both the motorcycles are capable to “produce higher and (more) consistent power as compared to earlier variants”, while offering “better and (more) accurate throttle response”.
In 2016, UM commenced its Indian operations with three entry-level cruisers – Renegade Commando, Renegade Sport S and Renegade Classic. With an investment of around Rs 120 crores, UM Motorcycles made a partnership with a home-grown two-wheeler maker – Lohia Auto – in September 2014. The company has a production plant in Kashipur, Uttarakhand. In order to expand its Indian operations, the company is planning to setup 36 new dealerships across the country. This will make it a total of 50 outlets in 2017.
The BS4 complaint engine and fuel injection technology have made the sport cruiser pricier than the previous model. While the BS3 model was priced at Rs 1.49 lakh, the new BS4 FI version is being offered at Rs 1.57 lakh (all, ex-showroom Delhi).
