The UM Renegade Commando follows a classic design and is claimed to attract those who love adventure and travel. The motorcycle has a muscular look and is available in some good paint choices including a matte green option. The UM Renegade Commando also lacks chrome elements and makes-do with neat powder-coated black body parts.
The headlight, taillight and indicators follow the same retro approach. The handlebar is high and pushed back just as in any conventional cruiser. There is also a pillion backrest along with the two-step seats which offer good comfort.
The instrument console is placed on the fuel tank just like on popular post-war motorcycles and the black spoke wheels are shod with chunky tyres; further adding to the classic theme. The UM Renegade Commando is definitely a good-looking choice when it comes to cruisers.
The UM Renegade Commando is powered by a 279.5cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine that produces 24.8bhp and 23Nm of torque. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The engine on the UM Renegade Commando offers decent performance for its bulky dimensions along with a linear power delivery. The Renegade Commando also offers a relaxed riding position and just like any other cruiser, it is ideal for long-distance travels. The suspension is a bit on the stiffer side but the nicely-cushioned seats make up for it. The engine on the Renegade Commando is adequately smooth and doesn’t have the infamous vibrations of a cruiser. Braking is also good even though the motorcycle comes only with a front disc brake.
With decent power and torque for its size, the UM Renegade Commando is a good buy in the entry-level premium cruiser segment. The motorcycle returns a mileage of around 30km/l; a decent figure for its output.
The UM Renegade Commando offers all the basic features you would expect from a cruiser at this price point, except things such as a rear disc, ABS etc. Other feature highlights include the single-pod instrument console with digital display and USB charging. Liquid-cooling can also be considered as an important feature since most of its competitors lack it.
The UM Renegade Commando is an affordable alternative to the leading cruiser motorcycles on the market today. The Renegade Commando offers just the basics but promises a comfortable ride. The motorcycle also looks good with its retro-inspired design theme.
The UM Renegade Commando has got a ground clearance of 200mm and the seats offer good comfort. This makes the motorcycle a decent performer on bad roads but maybe not the best.
UM offers a standard warranty of two years or 20,000 kilometres for the Renegade Commando. The warranty can be extended to four years or 40,000 kilometres for Rs 1496.
