Ultraviolette F77 India’s first high-performance Electric Motorcycle launched
EV startup Ultraviolette has commercially launched its first product - the F77 high-performance electric sportbike - in the Indian market. The e-bike's price starts at ₹ 3.8 lakh, and will be available in three distinct forms - Airstrike, Shadow, and Laser.
The company claims that the F77 is fully-designed and developed in India from scratch. It is powered by an integrated 10.3 kWh Lithium ion battery architecture on the top variant (F77 Recon) producing 95 Nm of peak torque and 29 kW (38.9 HP) of peak power.
Powered by "the most advanced battery pack in the industry", the electric bike offers an IDC range of 307 km, the highest for any electric two-wheeler in India, according to Ultraviolette.
Speaking on the launch of the F77, Narayan Subramaniam, Co-founder and CEO, Ultraviolette, said, "The F77 is a result of Ultraviolette's relentless pursuit for design and performance, and we can proudly claim that it is the most powerful electric two-wheeler in India with industry-first tech architecture and features. The F77 proves that superior performance and uncompromising power can be packed in a stunning form factor that India has been waiting for, and very soon it will be available globally."
As the first Indian two-wheeler equipped with avionics-inspired vehicle electronics and battery technology, the F77 comes with a suite of smart systems that take advantage of data from an array of sensors to offer a hyper-connected rider experience.
Features such as preventive maintenance, ride analytics, service, anti-theft and real-time data interpretation through the display and an app are few other highlights of the EV. Customers will also have access to one of the most comprehensive warranty offerings in the space, with the highest being 8 years or 1,00,000 km, the company has said.
Ultraviolette has set an active roadmap to launch the F77 in selected global markets in the next couple of years. As many as 70,000 pre-registration interests have already been received from over 190 countries, it claims.
While the India rollout of the F77 will begin in January 2023 from Bangalore, followed by a pan-India rollout and a company-owned servicing ecosystem through 2023. The first Ultraviolette Experience Center will come up in Bangalore shortly.
Production has commenced at Ultraviolette's new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility near Bangalore. The company's enclave also houses Ultraviolette R&D Center boasting comprehensive testing and validation infrastructure.
