UM Lohia Two Wheelers, the Indian arm of the American motorcycle maker UM International, is going to unveil the world’s first electric geared liquid cooled cruiser in the market during the upcoming Auto Expo 2018.

Apart from the electric geared high speed cruiser, a newly designed 230cc cruiser will also be revealed.

UM Lohia will also showcase its new and existing range of motorcycles which will include the Renegade Commando Classic, Renegade Commando Mojave, Renegade Commando and Renegade Sports S.

Rajeev Mishra, CEO-UM Lohia Two Wheelers said, “We are very excited to be a part of the Auto Expo 2018 and are confident that the visitors will be thrilled by the UM range of Motorcycles showcased at our stand.”

“We are expecting a healthy footfall as we have some great surprises for the visitors which they can only experience at the stand,” added Mishra.

Coming back to UM’s electric cruiser, the product was first unveiled by the company in EICMA 2017. However, as against the cruiser shown at EICMA 2017 that carried 12kW motor, the one to be presented in India will have 18kW motor. The cruiser bike will also sport a 5-speed manual gearbox.

Featuring front and rear disc brakes with self-start mechanism, the bike will most likely be priced at Rs 200,000. It will also come equipped with Halogen headlamp and LED tail lamp.

The company has not announced any further details about both the new unveilings. However, the second new product - a newly designed 230cc cruiser will compete with the likes of Bajaj Avenger Cruise 220.
