The 'UM Renegade Thor', this is what the American two-wheeler manufacturer's all-new electric cruiser motorcycle will be called. All-set to make its global premiere at the upcoming Auto Expo 2018, the new Renegade Thor is the world first electric geared high-speed cruiser and UM is expected to launch the bike in India later this year. Sadly, UM still hasn't revealed any further details about the motorcycle and we will only come to know more about it on February 8, 2018, during the motor show, at India Expo Mart, in Greater Noida, Uttar Pradesh.

 

The official communication from UM Motorcycles comes with the tag line "it's time to move past cc", which is a clear indication that the upcoming motorcycle will be powered by batteries that supply power to an electric motor instead of a conventional internal combustion engine. Unfortunately, we do not have the technical data and specification of the bike yet. Visually though, the silhouette of the new Renegade Thor in the teaser image reveals that the bike will come with a low slung stance of a traditional cruiser. The new Renegade Thor is likely to come with nice wide handlebars, a pseudo fuel tank that appears to come with chrome housing, possibly for LED displays for battery level, clock and other stuff. The bike also appears to have been painted in a red or maroon shade with looks like a one-piece tan seat. The new UM Renegade Thor could also offer LED projector headlamps and LED taillamp as part of the feature list.
