UM is set to launch two motorcycles, the UM Renegade Classic and the UM Commando Mojave Edition the following month, states a report from Bikewale. The launch will happen on 2 September, according to the site.
The Renegade Classic made its debut at the 2016 Auto Expo. Once launched, the Classic will be the flagship bike under the brand. The bike uses the same 279.5 cc liquid cooled engine that produces 24.8 hp of power at 8,500 rpm and 23 Nm of torque at 7,000 rpm. A six-speed gearbox transmits the power to the rear wheel via a chain drive.

The fuel tank can hold 18 litres of juice, ideal for long distance touring. Expect the bike to come with a host of accessories like a windshield, pillion backrest and the like.
The UM Renegade Commando Mojave Edition is essentially the Commando with a matte paint job and saddle bags. It will be sold at a premium over the standard Renegade Commando.
