Rs 2.99 lakh is still quite a lot of money to pay for an electric motorcycle. However, the Ultraviolette F77 Mach 2 promises to justify that price tag with its set of upgrades, so let’s jump in and see what’s new.

The F77 Mach 2 will be offered in two variants, to keep things simpler this time around; the standard F77 Mach 2 and the full-fat Mach 2 Recon. Both variants retain their 7.1 kWh and 10.3 kWh battery packs. However, the internals of the battery have been tweaked to deliver more range, with the claimed figure now going up from 307 km to 323 km on a single charge. Similarly, the standard Mach 2 also claims to cover 211 km on a single charge, which is 5 km more than the outgoing model. The F77 Mach 2 now claims a top speed of 155 kph.

Power and torque figures have also gone up; the full-fat Mach 2 Recon puts out 40.2 bhp and 10.19 kgm of torque. However, the standard F77 Mach 2 continues to produce 36.2 bhp and 9.1 kgm of torque.

In terms of equipment, the F77 Mach 2 offers a 10-level regen braking system, along with a three-level traction control, ABS, dynamic stability control, an anti-theft system, a 5-inch TFT instrument cluster, three ride modes, auto-dimming headlamps, hill-hold, and parking assist among other things. The Performance Pack is available for the first 1000 customers, which enables access to a four-level traction control system.

In terms of hardware, the F77 Mach 2 retains the same steel trellis frame suspended on preload-adjustable 41 mm forks and a monoshock, while braking power comes from a 320 mm disc with a hydraulic disc braking setup and dual-channel ABS from Bosch.
