The UM Renegade Commando is based on the same platform as the Renegade Classic and Renegade Sport S and the Renegade Mojave.
The bike is an entry-level cruiser, and features a large 18-litre fuel tank, pillion back rest, low-slung seats and high-set handlebars. It also gets round headlamps and a single large instrument console that integrates a speedometer and a digital display for the odometer and trip meters. It is placed on the tank to give it that traditional American cruiser appeal. UM has also added the USB charging port. The bike sits on spoke wheels, 16-inch up front and 15-inch at the rear.
The 2017 Renegade Commando gets a fuel-injected system and is powered by a liquid-cooled 279cc single-cylinder engine. This engine now delivers 25bhp and 23Nm of torque, and is mated to a six-speed gearbox and final chain drive. Suspension duties are taken care of by 41mm telescopic forks up front and a conventional twin hydraulic spring suspension at the rear. Braking is done by a 280mm disc at the front and a 130mm rear drum brake. It does not get ABS.
The Renegade Commando is available in three paint schemes – green, black and red. It competes with the Mahindra Mojo, Royal Enfield Classic 350 and the Thunderbird 350. The Renegade Commando is priced at Rs 1.76 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi).
