UM Motorcycles has been present in the Indian market for years now. The American brand offers a range of retro-looking cruiser bikes in the Indian market that takes on the likes of Royal Enfield. UM India was working on to launch new motorcycles in the market including an Adventure version. Here are the pictures and video of the upcoming UM ADV bike alongside the upcoming Renegade Regal.
UM showcased the DSR 200 to the Indian dealers alongside a cruiser bike, which seems to be the Renegade Vegas. However, we cannot confirm the name of the cruiser bike. The UM DSR Adventure 200 is a dual-purpose bike that will become the most affordable Adventure bike in the Indian market when launched. However, Hero MotoCorp is also planning to launch the all-new XPulse 200R in the Indian market and that bike too is in contention of becoming the most affordable adventure bike in the Indian market.
The UM Hypersport 200 is not available in the international markets. Only a the DSR Adventure 125 is available, which is powered by a much smaller engine. The DSR Adventure gets a very easy-going look with a long beak in front, upswept exhaust, all-black engine, alloy wheels, and hooks and space to mount the luggage pannier and a top box. The bike can be seen with disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels, possibly with single-channel ABS. The DSR Adventure 200 is likely to be powered by a 196cc, single-cylinder engine that generates a maximum of 16 Bhp and 16 Nm. It gets a six-speed transmission. The bike gets a 17-inch front and rear wheels. The bike would take on the upcoming Hero XPulse 200R and present bikes like the Royal Enfield Classic 350 and the Mahindra Mojo UT300.
The second bike that was showcased to the UM dealership officials was the Renegade Regal. The bike has been spotted testing on the Indian roads on several occasions and would be launched in the first-quarter of 2019. Like the other cruiser bikes in the range, the Renegade Regal offers true American looks. It can be seen with a lot of chrome on the body and a relaxed riding position.
The engine of the Renegade Regal is the most interesting part. It is likely to get a 251cc, oil-cooled, parallel-twin engine that produces around 18 Bhp and 17 Nm. It gets a five-speed transmission. This can become the most affordable parallel-twin motorcycle in the Indian market when launched, surpassing the Royal Enfield Interceptor.
However, UM has not said anything officially on the launch of the bikes in the Indian market yet. The brand has been planning to launch the new models for quite some time now and we can safely expect that both of them will be launched in early 2019 as both the bikes have been showcased at to the dealership officials.
