UM Motorcycles bringing adventure bikes soon

American motorcycle manufacturer UM Motorcycles is planning to launch a new niche of products in the form of adventure bikes.

UM has been working on their project of entering into the entry-level off-road motorcycle category and in order to that they have started developing engines ranging from 350-400cc capacity. Also, it is not clear that the new engine series would be a single cylinder one or a V-Twin.

Expect bigger capacity engines for new niche of bikes.

As speculated, the new adventure series would be oriented towards light off-road capabilities and will feature high ground clearance, long travel suspension and rigid built quality.

UM recently launched Classic & Renegade Mojave edition motorcycles to expand their portfolio in country; bringing a new adventure bike series would definitely fetch new buyers.

What UM aims from the launch of these new bikes is a take over on the newly developing entry-level adventure bike niche in India. Yes, KTM is soon going to bring their Adventure 390 which is already popular even before the launch and if UM makes it late there would be not much space left for their establishment.

UM said that they would launch the new adventure series in upcoming 6-months time frame; we expect launching around the Indian Auto Expo 2018.
