American bike maker UM Motorcycles had entered the Indian market in association with UM Lohia Two Wheelers in 2016. The cruiser bike range of the UM Motorcycles, including Renegade Commando, Commando Classic, Commando Mojave and Sport S, is regarded as affordable rivals against pricier Harley-Davidson bikes. Two years down the line, UM Motorcycles India is planning to expand its model range to seven models from the current four.

The three models in question are Renegade Duty S, Renegade Duty Ace and Renegade Sport S Vegas Edition. UM Motorcycles had showcased all three bikes at the Auto Expo 2018 and a report in ET Auto confirms that the three bikes will be launched in this financial year.

The UM Renegade Duty twins are powered by 223cc single-cylinder oil-cooled engine that develops 17bhp of power at 8,000rpm and 17Nm of torque at 5,000rpm, mated to a five-speed transmission. UM claims both the Duty range motorcycles will return about 41kmpl fuel efficient as per ARAI certification.

The UM Renegade Duty twins are essentially same bikes while certain cosmetics give them a separate identity. The headlamps cowl in both motorcycles are slightly different and the Duty Ace comes with bar-end mirrors. The Duty Ace comes in cafĂ© racer styled covered pillion seat while the Duty S gets full-size seats for rider and pillion. In addition, the Duty S comes with solid matte colour options while the Duty Ace gets a sportier dual-colour option.

UM Renegade Sport S Vegas Edition

As the name suggests, the Vegas Edition is based on the Sport S which is currently on sale while it gets some visual changes. The Vegas edition boasts off Matt Black paint job with red accents on the body.

The UM Motorcycles Vegas Edition will come fitted with flashy stuff such as the LED headlight, quilted seat with a rear cowl and LED DRLs on the side body panels. The handlebar, instrument console with digital display, fuel-tank, alloy wheels and the exhaust are all borrowed from the Sports S.
