UM India has gained quite a popularity in the Indian market, thanks to their aggressive pricing. After launching quite a few models in the cruiser segment, UM India will enter the adventure segment that is gaining high popularity in the Indian car market. UM India will soon launch two variants of the adventure bikes in the Indian market and here are the first pictures of the upcoming bikes that have been caught in India.
UM has not officially confirmed the launch of the bikes, but a number of reports have suggested that the American brand is looking to enter the segment. This is the first time that the adventure bikes have been spied in the Indian market.
The newly spied bikes are the UM Hypersport and UM DSR II 125 TT, which are available in many international markets. The Hypersport is expected to be the first bike launched in the adventure segment in India by the American manufacturer.
The Hypersport is powered by a 223cc, single-cylinder engine that generates a maximum of 16 Bhp and a peak torque of 17.69 Nm. It gets a supermoto design with a beak front mudguard. The bike also gets an underseat exhaust that ensures deep water wading capability. It also gets long-travel inverted telescopic forks in the international markets but the spy picture shows regular forks in the Indian version, which means UM will have market-specific changes to price it aggressively in the Indian market. It will compete with the Hero XPulse when launched.
The other bike, DSR II TT 125, is an entry-level adventure bike that is available in the European countries, but it might come with a bigger engine in the Indian market. The DSR II TT gets spoked wheels, which are much more effective in the off-road situations. Both the bikes are expected to be launched in the coming few months in the Indian market.
