One of the most awaited products in EV space, Ultraviolette F77 has been launched today at a starting price of Rs 3 lakh. The electric bike was originally planned for launch much earlier, but plans were postponed due to the pandemic. The delay actually turned out to be a blessing in disguise, as the startup got additional time to improve the bike’s design, features and performance aspects.
In its final format, Ultraviolette F77 has emerged as a truly world class electric bike. The startup has plans to launch the bike in overseas markets such as the US and Europe as well. With its comprehensive range of advanced, premium features, Ultraviolette F77 seems capable of gaining traction beyond Indian borders.
Ultraviolette F77 styling, features
With its beasty profile, Ultraviolette F77 will be a true-blue head turner on the streets. It has a badass attitude that will be surely liked by enthusiasts keen on experiencing a performance-oriented electric machine. Some key highlights of Ultraviolette F77 include a sporty headlamp, USD front forks, fat tyres for superior road grip, sculpted fuel tank design, scooped rider seat section, short tail and rear tyre hugger.
There appears to be a special focus on reducing drag, as much of the bike is wrapped in aerodynamic panels. Ultraviolette F77 has massive side panels that merge seamlessly with the fuel tank and seat section. Design of the front suspension cover and side panels will allow air to be channeled inwards, ensuring effective cooling for the battery pack, battery management system and other linked parts. This will be in addition to the bike’s integrated active cooling system.
Riding stance is fairly aggressive with rear-set foot pegs and low-set flat handlebar. The battery pack and other key equipment is placed close to the bike’s centre of gravity, which should ensure superior control and handling. Even shorter individuals shouldn’t have any issues handling this relatively heavy bike, as it has low seat height.
A total of three variants are on offer – Airstrike, Laser and shadow. The differences between the variants primarily relate to colour options, equipment list, battery capacity and range. Three ride modes are on offer – Glide, Combat, and Ballistic.
