American motorcycle maker UM Motorcycles is all set to launch two new cruisers in the Indian market.
Gaadiwaadi reports that UM Motorcycles will launch the Renegade Classic and Commando Mojave Edition on September 2, 2017, in India. The company is looking to target the entry-level premium motorcycle segment in the country.
Currently, the Indian product portfolio of UM Motorcycles includes Renegade Commando and Renegade Sports S. The Renegade Classic was first showcased at the 2016 Auto Expo. The motorcycle features retro cruiser styling with a wide range of accessories.
The Commando Mojave Edition is the special iteration of the standard Commando. It features matte desert paint scheme and leather saddle bags. Both the motorcycles will draw power from a 279cc fuel injected, liquid cooled engine producing 24bhp and 23Nm of torque.
The engine is coupled to a 6-speed gearbox delivering power to the rear wheel. Both the new motorcycles will be manufactured at Lohia Auto's Kashipur facility in Uttarakhand.
The entry-level premium motorcycle segment is rapidly growing in India. UM Motorcycles is looking to expand its product portfolio by launching two new cruisers. The motorcycles will be pitted against the likes of Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350 and the best-selling Classic 350.
