UM is expanding its portfolio in India after its first two models became decently popular in the market. The brand will bring its third offering in the Indian market in the form of Renegade Classic. The motorcycle gets a lot of chrome and looks premium when compared to the other two offerings.

The Renegade Classic gets the same 278cc, air-cooled engine but gets fuel injection that will increase the power by a bit. Currently, the same engine produces a maximum of 24 Bhp – 22 Nm in UM’s other offerings. The cruiser styled motorcycle also gets a bigger windscreen than its siblings.
