The carburettor variants of both the Renegade Sport S and Commando are cheaper than their fuel-injected variants
UM, Lohia Two Wheelers has launched the carburettor variants of the UM Renegade Commando and the UM Renegade Sport S in India. Until now the motorcycles were available in fuel injected variants only. However, with the launch of these carburetted variants both the motorcycles became more affordable.
The UM Renegade Sport S carburettor model has been priced at Rs 1.79 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi), while the UM Renegade Commando is priced at Rs. 1.85 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). The UM Renegade Sport is available with three paint schemes which include Young Red, Black Silver, and Young Orange.
The UM Renegade Commando, on the other hand, is offered in Matt Moss Green, Burgundy Shine and Black Shine paint scheme options. Both the motorcycle is powered by the same 279.5 ccs, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, 4-stroke carburetted unit. This engine is capable of producing about 23.7 PS of maximum power and 23 Nm of peak torque.
The fuel injected variant, on the other hand, produces slightly more power of 25.15 Ps and the same amount of torque. All those power is then transferred to the rear wheels with the help of a 6-speed gearbox. If we talk about other technical specification of the motorcycle both the Renegade Commando and the Renegade Sports S uses 41 mm telescopic forks at the front, and twin coil-spring shock absorbers at the rear.
Braking duties are taken care by 280 mm front discs and a 130 mm rear drum brake. Unfortunately, UM does not offer ABS even as an option with the motorcycles. The UM motorcycles also share the same 16-inch front and 15-inch rear alloy wheels wrapped with 110/90- and 140/90-section tubeless tires.
Both the Cruisers offers an impressive range with a huge 18 Litre fuel tank while it also gets a USB charging port as standard. The UM Renegade Sport S and Commando compete directly against the likes of the Royal Enfield Classic 350 and Thunderbird 350 but is definitely not as popular as the RE models.
