The F77 will be available in three different trims - Airstrike, Shadow, and Laser.
Ultraviolette Automotive, an EV startup based in Bengaluru, has officially launched its first high-performance, all-electric bike. It is offered in the F77 Standard and the F77 Recon versions, with respective ex-showroom prices of ₹3.80 lakh and ₹4.55 lakh. Apart from these, a Special Edition model is also available. So without further ado, let's take a look at all the key aspects of this new bike in town.
There are two capacities for the battery pack on the F77 - 7.1kWh and 10.3kWh. The F77 Recon will have an IDC range of 307 kilometres as opposed to the F77 Standard's 206 kilometres. The battery comes with up to an 8-year warranty from the manufacturer. Ultraviolette states that the F77 Standard has a top speed of 140km/h, and the electric motor makes 36bhp and 85Nm. The Recon version of the motorcycle has a 147km/h top speed and its electric motor is good for 40.5bhp and 100Nm. Glide, Combat, and Ballistic are the ride modes available on the new Ultraviolette models.
Both models feature an identical modern design with an LED headlamp, large side fairings, a split seating arrangement, and alloy wheels. Supersonic Silver, Stealth Grey, and Plasma Red are the three colours that Ultraviolette will offer for the base and Recon models. Moreover, the Special Edition is covered in colours like Afterburner Yellow and Meteor Grey.
The F77 comes with preload-adjustable front USD forks and a preload-adjustable rear shock (for higher-spec variants). A trellis frame holds the battery and motor. A 320mm front and one 230mm rear disc make up the braking system. The F77 sports 17-inch alloy wheels which are shod with 110/70 (front) and 150/60 (rear) Metzeler tyres.
The F77 series from Ultraviolette includes a variety of features such as a five-inch TFT screen that has smartphone connectivity, a vehicle locator, emergency contact alert, auto headlight on/off, navigation, adaptive dash lighting, fall and crash sensor, side stand sensor, ride-by-wire, and nine-axis IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit).
The F77 is available from Ultraviolette in three trim levels: Standard, Recon, and Special Edition. The base model is being offered for ₹3.80 lakh, whereas the Recon and Special Edition are priced at ₹4.55 lakh and ₹5.5 lakh, respectively (all ex-showroom). Bookings for the bikes began in October with a nominal payment of ₹10,000, and deliveries will commence in 2023.
