America based United Motors first showcased its Renegade Commando at the 2014 Auto Expo in Delhi. Now, the Miami based motorcycle company is all set to launch this cruiser motorcycle in the Indian market at an attractive price tag of 1.25 lakh.
Powering the Renegade Commando is a 223cc single Cylinder, 4-Stroke – air cooled engine which puts out 18hp of power at 8,000 rpm and 15.5Nm of torque at 5500 rpm. Power is transferred to the wheel via a five-speed transmission. This cruiser will be offered in three colours: matte green, black and white.
The Renegade Commando is a good choice for people who want stylish looks at an affordable price tag. The brand that shares its homeland with Harley Davidson and Indian Motorcycles will prove to be an ideal value for money product. But the company will have to ensure availability of spares and build a strong dealer and service network before it puts the Renegade Commando up for sale.
