American motorcycle manufacturer UM has received over 3,000 bookings in India since the launch of two cruiser bikes -- Renegade Commando and Renegade Sport S -- at the Auto Expo 2016 in February. The company had promised to begin deliveries in August, but is yet to make any, reports Autocar India.

The report says that the delay has been caused due to quality issues. Now, UM Director and CEO at UM Lohia Two Wheelers, Rajeev Mishra has assured deliveries of the motorcycles from September and October.

The Miami-based company had received over 1000 bookings by the end of March. After closing bookings for the first batch of bikes, UM had re-opened booking in May.

UM has priced Renegade Commando at Rs. 1.59 lakh and Renegade Sport S at Rs. 1.49 lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi). Both the motorcycles are powered by a 280cc single-cylinder water-cooled engine that develops 25bhp of power at 8,500rpm and 21.8Nm of torque at 7,000rpm, mated to six-speed transmission.

Renegade Commando measures 2,257 mm in length, 1,140 mm in height, 780 mm in width and has wheelbase of 1,545 mm. On the other hand, the Renegade Sport S measures 2,227 mm in length, 1,100 mm in height, 860 mm in width and has a wheelbase of 1,545 mm. Both the motorcycles come with a ground clearance of 150 mm and fuel tank capacity of 18 litres. The Commando is offered in three colours (Black Shine, Green Matt and Grey Matt), while the Sports S is available in Shiny Black, Orange and Red.
