UM Global Motorcycles, one of the latest motorcycle companies in the fast expanding Indian two-wheeler industry, plans to make a rather strong statement at the fast-approaching Auto Expo 2018. The American automaker is planning to come up with a range of new motorcycles that will include a scrambler and a cafe racer. Both of these upcoming UM motorcycles are based on the Renegade platform. Not just this, the company might also come up with the UM Renegade electric bike, which was showcased at the 2017 EICMA last year. Details on the launch are unavailable at the moment, but the company will likely use the Expo to gauge the interest that the new bike will generate among the show-goers.
The UM Renegade Electric bike is powered by a 30 kW electric motor that outputs a maximum power of roughly 50 bhp. This electric motor is sourced from Italian company Tacita Electric Motorcycles. With the Government of India planning to support the launch and the usage of electric vehicles in a huge way, launching this electric motorcycle in India could prove to be really beneficial to the bike maker.
