US-based cruiser creator UM Motorcycles has updated its two bikes with electronic fuel injection (EFI) technology. In light of the ban on the sales and registration of BS III vehicles, American two-wheeler manufacturer UM Motorcycles has upgraded its motorcycles, launching the fuel injected models of the UM Renegade Commando and the UM Renegade Sports S. Both the Renegade Sports S and Renegade Commando are now BS IV-compliant thanks to the EFI. UM claims the new, updated bikes shall produce higher and consistent power as compared to the earlier variants.
The engine specifications remain the same as they were earlier, but the UM bikes with fuel injection now conform to BS IV emission regulations. UM says the updated 2017 UM bikes will have better and accurate throttle response and can also be tuned should the customer want to. UM also says that cold starts will be better and of course, the bikes will have cleaner emissions as well.
Speaking on the occasion, Rajeev Mishra, CEO, UM Lohia Two Wheelers Pvt Ltd said, “We are really glad to announce that following the operation of BS-IV pollution norms in India, both Renegade Sports S EFI and Renegade Commando EFI entirely comply with the stringent pollution norms. Our bikes will now come equipped with fuel injection engines that shall create extra power for an improved driving desire.”
The Renegade Sports S and the UM Renegade Commando have the same 279.5 cc single cylinder engine which is liquid cooled. It makes max power of 24.6 bhp at 8,500 rpm and a top torque of 21.8 Nm at 7,000 rpm. The price of the Renegade Commando is Rs.1.64 lakh and the price for the Renegade Sports S is Rs.1.57 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). At current, UM Motorcycles have 45 franchises across the nation and will be planning to add more in coming year.
