Ultraviolette F77 electric motorcycle launched. Prices start from INR 3.80 lakh

Ultraviolette Automotive has launched its much awaited high-performance electric motorcycle in two variants – Original and Recon. The F77 Original costs INR 3.80 lakh (ex-showroom) and the F77 Recon INR 4.55 lakh (ex-showroom).  The F77 is the most powerful electric-motorcycle that’s currently made and sold in India.

The Original variant of the Ultraviolette F77 electric bike gets a 7.1kWh battery and a claimed range of 207 km (IDC). It weighs 197 kg, which is 10kg less than the Recon variant. The latter, on the other hand, has a larger 10.3kWh battery and a claimed range of 307km. Peak output figures are an area of difference between the two as well. The Original is rated for a peak of 27kW and 85Nm of torque, while the Recon is claimed to make a peak 29kW and 95Nm of torque. The limited edition model has even higher specifications. Wheelbase, seat height and ground clearance figures are the same for all variants at 1,340mm, 800mm and 160mm, respectively.

Both variants of the F77 come with three riding modes – Glide, Combat and Ballistic – which progressively increase power. The caveat here is that the Ballistic mode can only be used if the battery pack has 70 percent charge or more.

There will also be a special edition F77, of which just 77 units (limited) will be produced. This bike will come with all the top-specs including the bigger battery pack with a slightly higher power output of 30kW (40.5PS) and 100Nm, an aero disc rear wheel, lever guards as standard in addition to the unique grey and yellow paint scheme. The company claim that this bike can get from 0-100kmph in 7.8secs.

Keeping to the aeronautical theme of things, the F77 will be offered in three colourways: Airstrike, Shadow and Laser.

The chassis on the Ultraviolette F77 is a steel trellis unit with an aluminium bulkhead. Suspension duties are taken care of by a 41mm USD fork and a monoshock, both adjustable for preload. Braking hardware is in the form of a 320mm disc up front, bitten down upon by a 4-piston radial caliper and a 230mm rear disc mated to a single-piston caliper. Dual-channel ABS is standard on all F77 variants.
