Ultraviolette Automotive is an EV startup which currently has a substantial stake from TVS Motor Company. Their first product is the F77, billed as India’s first electric performance motorcycle. The F77 was unveiled to huge buzz recently and its price, Rs 3-3.25 lakh was also announced. Then we went to the racetrack at Chennai to get our first taste of the F77. We were interrupted by rain, a few technical glitches, the riding time was severely limited. But all that doesn’t matter because there’s a very promising, exciting, sweet-handling motorcycle in the F77. The prototypes were certainly impressive although it is clear the Ultraviolette has lots of ground to cover, not least, manufacturing itself before the bike can be sold to the public. And that is all right because the deliveries are expected to start only in October 2020.
