  • UM's new adventure motorcycle and 2 new cruisers are in store for India

    UM India’s CEO Rajeev Mishra at EICMA 2018
    "These are exciting times and to begin with, we will be launching Renegade Vegas, Renegade Duty S & an exciting adventure bike in India over the next couple of months."


    UM is all set to bring in a new adventure motorcycle, besides the mostly anticipated cruisers, Renegade Vegas and Renegade Duty S.


    Renegade Vegas


    Renegade Duty S

    UM has showcased DSR Adventure TT at this year’s EICMA show in Milan, Italy. It is powered by a 125cc liquid-cooled engine churning out 14.9PS and 10.9Nm. However we hope UM plonks in 230cc air-cooled engine with oil cooling which produces 17PS and 17Nm which is in the Duty S.




    There is a good chance that UM might surprise us with the 279.5cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine currently equipped in Renegade range. This engine delivers 25.15PS and 23Nm.


    The Adventure TT being an adventure motorcycle is equipped with long travel telescopic forks up front and a monoshock at the rear. Braking department is is handled by discs front and back and at least single-channel ABS is expected to comply with the latest safety norms.


    The motorcycle wears a 21-inch front and a 17-inch rear spoke wheels shod with dual-purpose tyres measuring 90/90-R21 and 130/80-R17. Motorcycle is well equipped with the signature UM features such as analogue-digital instrument cluster, halogen headlamp and a USB charging port.


    The bike sits at a height of 850mm which is comparable to the BMW R 1200 GS’ and might not be easily accessible for shorter riders.
    We expect UM to sensibly price this at around Rs 1.5 lakh to Rs 2 lakh (ex-showroom). At if this is price right and Um plonks in the 230cc version, it would compete with the upcoming Hero XPulse 200. If UM opts for the liquid-cooled 279.5cc single, the DSR Adventure TT would rival the Royal Enfield Himalayan.
