The UM Motorcycles lineup is mostly filled with the cruisers. The cruisers are the game-changing models in the auto segment which offers comfort and ferocious performance to give best cruising experience to the users. One such model from the opulent cruiser manufacturer is the ‘Renegade Sport S’. The Renegade Sport S is the top end variant that carries perfect cruiser design that appears to be eye-feast to the eyes.
UM Renegade Sport S gets offered in colors like;
The UM Renegade Sport S is the aesthetic cruising model that gets the round headlight fairing with a sloping design with orange and black color which appears to be promising and premium. The muscular-looking tank with lines and heavily designed side panel looks to be distinctive. The matte black plastic extension below the tank gets LEDs on each side to give better vision on dark roads.
The rear gets an aggressive large tail lamp unit to give flamboyant stance. The nicely padded two-piece seat with bar offers good comfort to both the rider & pillion. The astounding fairing & elements of the bike looks to be extravagant with the bike. The quality of the fitments is not up to the mark, which further degrades the reputation of the bike maker.
The bike gets a side LED setup to give better illumination on dark. The rider gets facilitated with the USB ports, a small LCD screen to acknowledge the rider by displaying gear status and significant information of the bike.
Coming to powering of the engine, The UM Renegade Sport S gets all the power from a 279.5cc single, liquid-cooling, 4-valve engine that churns out tremendous output figures. Being a carburetor engine it gives responsive delivery to the bike. The engine churns out a 25PS of peak power to pull the 172kg weighing bike effectively.
The grunt power is effectively distributed to the rear wheel to rush the cruiser. The bike gives no any flaws while riding the bike at high speeds.
Hence the Renegade Sport S enables effortless vibes to the biker even the bike hits the top speed of 100km/h. Though there is some vibration when the bike reaches 130 km/h, it is easily manageable by the rider.
The NVH levels are good and refined and tuned engine response gives powerful drives, and thus the rider can maneuver the roads with rage. Hence the bike seems to better with the performance and efficiency.
The suspension unit of the Renegade Sport S will not give expected hassle-free rides. It gives average comfortable rides, on the linear tarmac, but when it is the uneven surface it will give you bad experience. Being from an American manufacturer we expect the best handling & steering capability, but Sport S handling is not up to the mark.
The grippy tubeless tyres further give you a good amount of friction to hold the surface tightly. The braking system of the bike is good and reliable, which offers good stopping power to the bike.
The UM Renegade Sport S is the ones of the best option to choose to drive the bike home by sparing almost INR 1.49 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Hence the affordable pricing makes the cruiser the best option to select the bike in the competitive segment.
Performance wise Sport S is the worthy performer, but if you consider the reliability of the fitments and fairings then it, not the best option. The bike appears to be plusher in the stance but in terms of the durability, it boasts so, so elements. So the choice is yours.
