Body and Design
Ultraviolette electric bike acquires sporty looks along with a forward-leaned body framework. It has a sporty riding position due to its low set clip-on handlebars. The framework started with the KTM RC 390. Hence, the front face is almost identical to KTM RC and in fact, the wheelbase is identical as well.
At the back, it gets a new cast alumimium swing-arm which is quite short because the motor unit is long while they just could not accommodate anything longer. Above that is the laid down KTM shock which works quite well.
But the biggest change is in the mid-section body part. There is a completely new frame that uses the battery box as the structural member of the frame.
The overall body and design look sportier than ever. It has got split seats while the full-body faring looks great on this bike. The headlamp looks great with a futuristic design and it also gets alloy wheels on both tyres.
The F77 makes 10 bhp less than a KTM 390 but almost the same peak power as the TVS Apache RR 310. But when it comes to torque, it always on 90 Nm which is almost 3 times as much as the KTM and the TVS.
The Ultraviolette F77 has an air-cooled brushless DC motor. This motor generates 33 bhp of power. Its top speed is 147 kilometers per hour. It can reach 0-60 in 2.9 seconds, and 0-100 at a speed of 7.5.
It has no gearbox but there is some racket from the chain drive and it accelerates fast enough. This bike has dual-channel ABS, digital odometer, trip meter, riding modes, LED tail lights, Navigation, and fast charging.
There are other features like fall & crash sensor, Vibration E-SIM, iOS & Android smartphone app, Arrestors, BLS4 Automated Battery Control System, Automated Battery Ejection, Battery Locking, regenerative braking, and emergency contact alert that are equipped in this electric motorcycle.
The Ultraviolette F77 will be available in three color choices: Laser, Lightning, and Shadow.
