UM Renegade Commando | Ride The Difference
UM Renegade Commando: Push the Commando’s starter button and the 279.5cc single-chamber engine awakens and subsides into a bustling murmur. The six-speed gearbox is smooth however you have to fabricate revs as you endeavor to roll away in first to forestall slowing down it. Both, the 24.8bhp and the 21.8Nm of torque are made high up in the rev band – at 8,500 and 7,000 rpm separately – which implies base end reaction is really feeble.
The carburettor-bolstered engine fabricates revs rapidly yet vibrates a considerable lot. Get up to cruising pace and you can feel it through the handlebar and the seat, and it just turns out to be more articulated as you heap on the revs.
Moving, the Commando feels rather light and flickable in spite of the enormous 140-segment raise tire. The 16-inch front wheel joined with the 15-inch raise beyond any doubt helps its motivation. The adaptive forks have covers on them, which influences them to look like topsy turvy forks (yet they’re not), and is set up to be delicate, while the water driven swaggers at the back are stiffer.
Ride quality is sensible and dealing with through the corners is snappy with alters of course requiring little exertion. The single-barrel engine puts shut down entirely well and you can split 100kph rapidly, yet the vibrations are very serious and annoying. Additional stressing is the weak braking execution from the 280mm front circle, while the back drum scarcely figures out how to scour off any speed.

The Commando may look cool and have highlights, for example, a USB charger on the instrument comfort, yet fit-and-complete levels and refinement require a genuine advance up if UM needs to make a stamp in this aggressive section, particularly with a sticker cost of Rs 1.59 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the Commando.
