Revealed numerous months in the past in its very last version, the Ultraviolette F77 has started its ultimate collection of tests. Deliveries are deliberate for the give-up of 2022.
The Ultraviolette F77 was presented as an idea in 2018, and its very last model in 2019. The brand new Indian electric-powered bike has by no means been so near launch. A few days ago, the producer started the previous assessments of its gadget at the TAAL airfield runways within the Tamil Nadu kingdom. A very last step earlier than the primary deliveries is anticipated at the year’s quit.
Ultraviolette F77 :Up to 150 km/h
For the first electric motorcycle, Ultraviolette has chosen muscular characteristics. Without going to hunt on the ground for the models of Zero Motorcycles or Energica, the manufacturer assimilates the performances of its first model to that of an equivalent thermal model of 400 or 500 cm³. Ultraviolette F77, powered by a 27 kW (36 hp) electric-powered motor, guarantees acceleration from zero to one hundred km/h in 7.7 seconds and a pinnacle velocity of one hundred fifty km/h. Three driving modes are offered in use: Eco, Sport, and Insane, a nod to Tesla’s “Ludicrous” mode.

Powered through 3 battery packs, the Ultraviolette F77 claims quite a number one hundred thirty to fifty km on an unmarried charge. On its technical sheet, the producer publicizes 4.2 kWh of capacity. However, we don’t recognize if this corresponds to an available % or to the buildup of the 3 (thinking about the introduced performances, we lean for the primary option!). Equipped with an onboard charger of 1 kW, the electric motorcycle of Ultraviolette requires 5 hours for a complete recharge. For the most hurried, the second charger of 3 kW is available as an option. External allows us to limit the load time to approximately 1h30. There is also a CCS combo port for fast DC charging.

On its website, Ultraviolette announces that it has received more than 65,000 pre-orders worldwide. This figure remains to be taken with precaution since the manufacturer did not ask for any deposit. As far as prices are concerned, the F77 should exceed 350,000 rupees or about 4,400 euros. However, a charge that appears low cost for Europe stays excessive in India, wherein the common earnings no longer exceed 400 € in line with the month.
From the battery to the engine, along with the chassis and the fairing, Ultraviolette will manufacture and collect all of the additives in a manufacturing unit positioned in Bangalore, south of the country. By 2023, the company is counting on 12,000 to 15,000 deliveries while specifying that it is already able to increase its production capacity according to market demand. A parent that appears huge, however, must be positioned in attitude with the scale of the Indian market, wherein extra than 20 million bikes are offered yearly.
