The Ultraviolette F77 can reach speeds of up to 150kmph and has a range of 307 kilometers on a single charge.
The highly anticipated Ultraviolette F77 electric motorcycle has been unveiled by Bangalore-based EV startup Ultraviolette. This alluring electric bike, which supports the Make in India movement, was created using local engineering and design. The startup also intends to introduce its e-bikes to the US and European markets in the ensuing years.
“We stand out as someone who genuinely believes in a vision for high tech in this sea of mass-segment automobiles. This is not the only topic we will cover, in my opinion. But because the technology we developed is now so modular and scalable, it opens up a variety of markets to enter ” said Narayan Subramaniam.
With a high handlebar and a low seat, the new sporty Ultraviolette offers the rider a unique experience and more comfort. The company chose to draw inspiration from the aviation sector to make the Ultraviolette bike futuristic; as a result, one won’t be able to see any screws or nut bolts on the bike.
With specs of 0-60kmph in 2.9 seconds and 0-100kmph in 7.8 seconds, F77 can reach a top speed of 150 Km and has a 300 km range on a single charge. Two different types of chargers can be used to charge the bike: a standard charger that can power it up to 35 km/h and a boost charger that can power it up to 75 km/h. The boost charger can also be borne on the bike.
“Charging the F77 bike is as simple as charging your phone,” Narayan Subramaniam outlined. Users could even track anything on their Ultraviolette F77 application, from a pin to a plane. There are three riding modes for the F77 bike: Glide, Ballistic, and Combat. It is powered by a motor with a 30kW power output and a 100Nm torque. The motor is a BRB 10 type, has a 10.3kWh capacity, a 307 IDC range, and an 8-year warranty.
The founders claim that this is the biggest battery pack created in India, and it is available in three different models: F77 Shadow, F77 Laser, and F77 Airstrike. The motorcycle has a range of 307km, a battery capacity of 10.3kW, and 29kW of horsepower and 95Nm of torque. Priced at 4.55 lakhs (ex-showroom), the F77 Recon is more expensive than the F77 Original, which costs 3.8 lakhs (ex-showroom price). After the F77 Recon, the F77 original has the second-largest battery pack. The company has also disclosed the monthly lease prices for the two bike models, which are 9,500 for the F77 original and 11,000 for the F77 Recon. Bengaluru will receive the bikes beginning in January 2023, and other cities will be planned by the company.
In FY22, Ultraviolette intends to sell 12,000–15,000 units of the F77, with customers who are interested in technology as their primary market. As it expands internationally, the company anticipates volumes of almost 60,000 units in CY24. “Since production involves significant decisions and the deployment of significant resources, our strategy is a little more conservative because we first need to get the fundamentals and the basics right before aggressively scaling up production. Therefore, in CY23, our conservative estimate is in the range of 12,000–15,000 ” said Subramaniam.
To the privileged 77 individuals numbered specifically from 0-77, one can also reserve the new Ultraviolette F77 limited model. The limited edition has a 10.3kWh energy capacity, 30.2kW power, 100Nm torque, and 307km of range.
Subramaniam also commented that over the course of five years, the F77 is more cost-effective than an ICE bike at half the price when asked if Ultraviolette is also considering the introduction of a more affordable electric model. “The most recent technological advancements and innovations are never inexpensive. For that curve to mature and the scale to set in, it takes a few years”. ” The next two to three years will be spent establishing our global expansion and ensuring that all of India has access to the F77″, he continued, adding that it would be premature to predict any other model.
Ultraviolette, a TVS Motor Company-backed EV start-up, recently launched the F77 electric motorcycle in India, with prices ranging from Rs 3.80 lakh to Rs 5.50 lakh (ex-showroom). The F77 debuted for the first time back in November of 2019 and its deliveries were anticipated to start in the third quarter of 2020. However, the Covid-19 pandemic severely hampered the company’s plans Now Ultraviolette F77 comes in three different variations: Airstrike, Shadow, and Laser, each with the F77 standard and F77 Recon. Additionally, the company asserted that 70,000+ pre-launch booking inquiries for the F77 were received from 190 different nations, with plans to establish a physical presence throughout India. Ultraviolette is the sole leading manufacturer of premium electric two-wheelers, so it would be fascinating to see it grow…
