After months of teasers, Ultraviolette Automotive finally launched its first electric motorcycle, the F77 in India. And unlike all the other electric two-wheelers on sale in the market, the F77 is a rather distinctive one with the kind of package it offers. Let’s take a look at its highlights.
Styling and Colours
The Ultraviolette F77 is a proper youthful electric motorcycle. It gets muscular bodywork with sharp creases on the fairing, a futuristic fascia housing the LED headlight, and a split seat setup. The F77 is offered in Supersonic Silver, Stealth Grey, and Plasma Red. Meanwhile, there’s also a special edition that comes draped in Meteor Grey and Afterburner Yellow.
Motor and Battery
Powering the latest electric motorcycle is a 27kW (peak power) motor mated to a 7.1kWh battery (base model). It gets a claimed range of 206km and top speed of 140kmph. Meanwhile, the other two variants of the F77 benefit from a 29kW and 30.2kW motor. Both units are mated to a 10.3kWh battery and get 307km of IDC (Ideal Driving Conditions) range. That said, their top speeds are 147kmph and 152kmph.
Using a standard charger, the F77 can be charged up to 35km in an hour. And using the booster charging, the battery can be charged up to 75km in an hour.
The F77 rides on front USD forks with preload adjustability (only for the higher spec models) and a preload adjustable rear shock. The motor and batteries are nestled in a trellis frame. The bike’s braking hardware comprises a single 320mm front and 230mm rear disc. Ultraviolette has equipped the F77 with 17-inch alloys shoed to 110/70 front and 150/60 rear tyres from Metzeler.
The F77 packs a truckload of features including LED illumination, a TFT screen with Bluetooth connectivity, smartphone compatibility, navigation, adaptive dash lighting, vehicle locator, geofencing, BMS with five-level safety, shock and crash alert, emergency contact, ride history and ride analytics, a nine-axis IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) and auto headlight on and off.
Price and Variants
Ultraviolette has offered the F77 in three trims: standard, Recon, and Special Edition. The asking price for the base model is set at Rs 3,80,000 while the Recon and Special Edition cost Rs 4,55,000 and Rs 5,50,000 (all ex-showroom Bengaluru). Deliveries for the bikes will commence in 2023 and the bookings started back in October with a token amount of Rs 10,000.
