After settling down with their products, UM India is now expanding their reach across India. They are launching dealerships in all the major cities of India and at the same time they have announced that they will introduce the long pending, range-topping Renegade Classic cruiser around May 2017, finally.
Apart from that, as you can see in these pics, another model, Renegade Mojave has also been leaked. Mojave, pronounced as mo-hah-vee (and not mo-ja-vey), is the driest desert in North America. Based on the Renegade Commando, Mojave adorns a light brown shade in matte finish which immediately reminds us of Royal Enfield’s Classic Desert Storm motorcycles.
To add to the overall theme, UM will also provide leather saddle bag (visible in this motorcycle) and some other touring-oriented accessories. Renegade Mojave will continue with the same 279.5 cc single cylinder engine which should be made BS4-compliant upon its launch. Currently, it churns out 25 PS of peak power and 22 Nm of max torque.
Renegade Mojave Launch
This appears to be a dealer preview or some kind of a similar event and hence it is clear that the motorcycle is absolutely ready for retail sales. We expect an official announcement of its launch in the coming couple of months. Expected to be marketed as a special edition, it may be priced at around Rs 1.70 lakhs, slightly over the regular Commando.
Very recently, UM has launched Roadside assistance which is a first for motorcycles in India!
