About Renegade Thor
The UM Renegade Thor is the firm's first all-electric motorcycle. It is powered by a 30kW motor with 70Nm of torque. This motor uses liquid cooling and, unlike a lot of electric motorcycles, has a gearbox as well. The firm has put incentives in place to encourage buyers - the first 50 Thor customers will get free lifetime charging at any UM showroom. The rest will get only two years of free charging. This isn't a bad deal, considering the fast charger charges the battery to 80 per cent in 40 minutes. Full range when ridden sanely is 270km, which is on par with a big bike's tank range. It gets disc brakes at both ends and 17-inch rims. Select customers will get the opportunity to take delivery of their Thor at the factory where it is manufactured in Italy, and go for a company-organised tour of the surrounding areas.
The Thor's asking price is Rs 5 lakhs, but if you opt for the full colour TFT display for the instrumentation, the price can double.
