Bengaluru-based EV startup UltraViolet launched the much-awaited F77 electric motorcycle in India on Thursday, more than three years after it was first unveiled.

This comes after a series of delays in launch due to the pandemic. The company has finally taken the wraps off its product and has announced its pricing as well as availability.

Ultraviolette F77 :

The Ultraviolette F77 is locally designed and engineered, and the bike will be introduced in a phased manner, starting with Bengaluru. The company also plans to launch its e-bikes in the US and Europe markets in the years to come.

The Bengaluru-based Ultraviolette says the deliveries will begin in a phased manner. In January, deliveries for customers in Bengaluru will begin, followed by Chennai, Mumbai, Pune, and Cochin in Q2, then Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, Delhi, and Lucknow in Q3, and Gurgaon, Jaipur, Kolkata, Guwahati and Ludhiana in Q4.

Without much ado let’s have a quick glance at the recent updates on the launch of Ultraviolette F77.

The new sporty Ultraviolette has a high handlebar and a low seat so as to give the rider an exclusive experience and add more convenience. To make the Ultraviolette bike futuristic, the company decided to draw inspiration from the aviation industry, and thus as result, you won’t notice any screws and nut bolts on the bike.

The F77 looks quite sporty thanks to its muscular front and angular fairing. It offers features like an LED headlamp, clip-on handlebars, and a digital instrument cluster. There are three trims on offer — Airstrike, Shadow, and Laser.
