Ultraviolette F77 launch will give India the first performance oriented electric motorcycle. It has been pending for the last some years…
Ultraviolette Automotive, Bengaluru based EV start-up, has finally launched the teaser for their electric sportsbike – F77. The F77 was last showcased in 2019 where we got to know certain details about the bike.
The TVS- backed Ultraviolette F77 electric sportsbike will be offered in three variants – Airstrike, Shadow and Laser. And it is expected that the motorcycle will be finally launched in the market in the month of March.
The new F77 is going to weigh around 158 kg. On their website they mention that the bike will churn out 25 kW (33.5 BHP) of power at 2250 RPM and the motor will be able to generate 90 Nm of torque which will translate to a whopping 450 Nm at the wheel!!
Talking about key numbers, the claimed range is 130-150 km from their 3-pack arrangement. The company claims that the F77 will be able to achieve 0-60 kmph in 2.9 seconds and 0-100 kmph in 7.5 seconds with a top speed of 147 kmph – and that is fast by all standards!
The 3-pack battery arrangement will take 5 hours to completely charge on the standard power outlet and will only take 1.5 hours using the fast charger system.
The electric sportsbike is built on a steel trellis frame with inverted forks at the front and rear monoshock with adjustable preload settings. The present system consists of 320 mm front disc with 4-piston radial caliper at the front and 230 mm rear disc with single floating piston caliper combined with dual-channel ABS and regen functionality.
The F77 will come with a TFT dash, full LED lighting setup, reverse assist, three riding modes and backlit control switches.
The production of Ultraviolette F77 is expected to begin soon. 90% of the bike’s components, which include the battery pack, will be manufactured locally. This should help Ultraviolette in keeping the price competitive and it should be easier to service the motorcycle as well.
