Performance:


Right out of the box, the F77 Recon has a comparable 29 kW (38.9 hp) of power on offer, what sets it apart is the 95 Nm of torque which is available throughout the power band, unlike an ICE engine. The F77 Recon can go from 0-60 kmph in just 3.1 seconds and has a top speed of 147 kmph. At these figures, the F77 is a cracker of a motorcycle when compared to its petrol competitors.
The KTM Duke 390 is one of the most sought-after middle-weight sportbikes in the country. It gets a single-cylinder 373.2 cc engine, producing 42.9 hp at 9,000 rpm and 37 Nm torque at 7,000 rpm, which is more than the F77’s 38.9 hp but is unlikely to weigh up against the Ultraviolette’s 95 Nm torque which is there throughout.
The same scenario can be expected against the BMW G310 R, which gets a single-cylinder petrol engine producing 33.5 hp of power and 37 Nm of torque. In theory, the F77 Recon has its petrol competitors beat as the EV does away with all the inefficiencies of a typical ICE setup. However, EVs always lose out to ICE vehicles in the terms of real-world practicality and range but Ultraviolette seems to have addressed that issue as well.

Range and fast charging:


With a 13.5-litre fuel tank, a KTM Duke 390 can cover about 350 km at a claimed mileage of 26 kmpl. On the other hand, a BMW G310R with its 11-litre tank can do about 333 km at a claimed 30.3 kmpl.
The Ultraviolette F77 Recon closes the gap at a claimed IDC range of 307 km on a full charge. This is largely thanks to the 10.3 kWh battery pack, the largest to go into an electric bike in India. The F77 also gets 3 levels of brake regeneration and three riding modes - Glide, Combat and Ballistic. This gives the rider added control over the performance and battery range.
The F77 Recon also supports standard charging and fast charging. Using Ultraviolette’s optional Boost charger, the F77 can get up to 75 km of range out of one hour of charging.

Price:


With all of its benefits, the F77 Recon also sports a considerably more expensive purchase price at Rs 4.55 lakh ex-showroom. The KTM Duke 390 costs 2.96 lakh ex-showroom and the BMW G310R costs Rs 2.75 lakh ex-showroom. However, it will be in the long-term running cost where buyers of the F77 will benefit. The F77 Recon can run 1,500 km in a month for less than Rs 400 on average, bringing an estimated annual fuel cost of not more than Rs 5,000. Considering an additional maintenance cost of Rs 5,000 every year, an F77’s 5-year ownership cost is estimated to be not more than Rs 50,000. Which will be considerably cheaper than a petrol motorcycle in the same segment.

Bengaluru’s Ultraviolette Automotive has finally launched the F77 range of electric bikes for India.
