After a long wait, we have finally got some details of the Ultraviolette F77. It now comes with a single fixed battery, 30 per cent lighter and two times stiffer motor mount and a range of 307km (IDC claimed). The prices and other details will be revealed at the launch on 24th November 2022.
Ultraviolette F77 design
The Ultraviolette F77 was revealed in a stripped version for us to see the architecture inside and hence, nothing can be said about the design as of yet. However, the headlamp and taillamps appeared to be the same while the switchgear looked new.
Ultraviolette F77 battery
The Ultraviolette F77 has gone with a fixed battery architecture instead of the modular one seen on the pre-production model. It now comes with a claimed IDC range of 307km. The cells used in the battery pack have gone up from 18,650 in the pre-production version to 21,700. The battery pack can now individually turn off each cell in case of a hazard. In the effort of making the battery more structurally durable, Ultraviolette has given the F77's battery an aluminium casing.
The cooling for the battery is passive, but Ultraviolette claims to have the best thermal management system in the class.
Ultraviolette F77 chassis
The Ultraviolette F77 gets significant weight reduction in the chassis. The motor mount is now 30 per cent lighter and 2 times stiffer. The transmission and the swingarm get an improvement too.
Ultraviolette F77 tech
The Ultraviolette F77 gets three riding modes and threelevels of regenerative braking. The instrument cluster is all digital but the exact details will be disclosed on the launch date.
The Ultraviolette F77 will be launched on 24th November but the pre-bookings commence on 23rd October with a price of Rs10,000. Ultraviolette projects a sale of 10,000 units per year in its phase one. With a range of 307km the Ultraviolette F77 has no competition as of now in the EV category but based on the company’s claims it should have performance similar to the KTM Duke 390 and TVS Apache RR 310.
