The highly successful Royal Enfield Thunderbird will be among this bike’s main rivals.

The Sport too, while missing out on some of the jazz of the Sport S, has a stylish design and looks every bit like a world-class cruiser should.

Powering the Sport range is a single-cylinder 279cc, liquid-cooled engine that belts out a max. power of 26.6 PS and a peak torque of 22.76 Nm. The motor comes mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. The new UM Renegade Sport series could make for an interesting upgrade from the Bajaj Avenger.
