Bengaluru-based electric two-wheeler brand Ultraviolette will launch its first product – a performance electric motorcycle – in the Indian market in November.
The company’s website gives a glimpse at the silhouette of the motorcycle along with a few engine specifications. The F77 will boast a maximum output of 25 kW and a peak torque of 450 Nm (at the rear wheel). The 0-60 km/h acceleration is claimed to take 3 seconds.
The motorcycle will be built around a tubular trellis-style frame. The F77 will be a roadster-style motorcycle, and it will thus offer no windblast protection. The feature list will include full-LED lighting (headlight, blinkers and taillamp) and a digital instrument console. Ultraviolette will also offer a smartphone app that will offer access to various functions such as performance customisation, preventive maintenance, remote diagnostics, ride analysis and OTA upgrades.
A test mule of the upcoming motorcycle was spotted during road tests, revealing the split-style taillight of the motorcycle. The spy images also revealed that the battery pack and the engine will be hidden behind fibre panels.
The ergonomics will be on the sportier side, and the F77 will come equipped with a clip-on style handlebar. The split-style, step-up seat further enhances the sporty looks of the F77. We have already seen the setup through spy photographs.
Several hardware details, too, were have been revealed through the spy images. The shock absorption department, for example, will include a mono-shock suspension at the back. The front forks were not visible in the spy images, but we will most likely see inverted units for a sporty look. Anchoring department will comprise disc brakes on both wheels, while the safety net will most definitely include ABS tech.
The motorcycle will most likely carry a premium price of over INR 2 lakh+ (ex-showroom). While the availability details are scarce, we expect to see a phase-wise launch of the F77. The electric vehicle will most likely be available in Bengaluru in the first phase.
Apart from the F77, Ultraviolette will offer an electric scooter that will be joining the company’s portfolio very soon. The electric vehicles will be backed by Ultraviolette Energy Network charging stations. The company will also offer a home charger with its products, although that is likely to cost extra.
