UM Renegade Commando Highlights
16 November 2018: Coming from a relatively new manufacturer’s stable, the UM Renegade Commando is gradually setting its foothold in the Indian market with its big bike appeal. With a design language and silhouette inspired from the bigger cruisers from the families of Harley Davidson and Indian, the Renegade Commando impresses you with its low slung stance and pure American feel in its design, with a beefy appeal to it. Power comes from a four-stroke, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, 279.5cc engine, which churns out 25.15PS of maximum power at 8500rpm and 23Nm of peak torque at 7000rpm. It has a claimed top speed of 125kmph. Mated to a six-speed gearbox, this engine has a high revving character which is very different from the usual breed of cruisers.
Under the skin, the Renegade Commando has a conventional suspension setup of 41mm hydraulic telescopic forks at the front and a pair of hydraulic coil springs at the rear, which are tuned for a softer ride. Tipping the weighing scale at 179kgs, the Renegade Commando might not be too agile in tight city traffic conditions, but then, it surely feels planted on long distances. Available in three colour options: Burgundy, Olive Green and Black Shine, the Renegade Commando can be all yours for Rs 1.87 lakh. It competes against the likes of the Royal Enfield Classic 350, the Bajaj Dominar 400, the Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350, Mahindra Mojo and the newly launched Jawa and Jawa 42.

UM Renegade Commando Expert Review
The UM Renegade Commando has made its presence in the limited entry-level cruiser segment with its typical cruiser stance, which does feel old school but not dated. The bike sources its power from a rather modern liquid cooled 279.5cc engine, which make 25.5PS of power and 23Nm of torque. The bike ensures you a plush ride quality with 41mm hydraulic telescopic forks at the front and simple twin hydraulic coil springs at the rear. The bike does come with a 280mm disc brake at the front, but it lacks a disc brake at the rear, at the same time.
The UM Renegade Commando is available in one single variant, which comes with all the features and equipment mentioned above. Unlike other cruisers which offer a blackened theme of the engine or mechanical components, the Renegade Commando offers this thing as standard. The bike is available in three different solid colour options – Olive Green, Burgundy and Black Shine. The motorcycle is devoid of any body graphics, except for a star like insignia on the fuel tank. The bike is priced at Rs. 1.76 lakh (Ex-showroom, Delhi).
Design and Features
When it comes to design and pure visual appeal, the UM Renegade Commando deserves full marks for its sheer American aura. The bike looks inspired from bigger American cruisers, which means that it looks big and purposeful, without being too overdone.
At the front, the UM Renegade Commando comes adorned with a big round headlamp which is encased in a black casing, which sits ahead of a small flat rectangular panel with “Commando” written on top of it. To be honest, this is one particular area, where the motorcycle looks a bit odd. The front fender doesn’t carry any drama and is styled simply without any cuts or creases, in an old-school manner. In an unconventional manner, both the spoke wheels are painted in black.
It is the side profile, which makes the Renegade Commando a head turner. The fuel tank is not too curvaceously styled, but then, it has a curvy appeal and looks tapered down from below, with a big sloping black panel housing the round analog speedometer within it. The side body cowls, again in an unconventional manner, are boxy, but don’t ruin the appeal of the bike.
There may not be any rear side body panels, but the rear fender is large enough to act like one, and it acts as a support to the big cushioned backrest, which adds in some appeal to the motorcycle. At the rear, the Renegade Commando has got a simple trapezoidal tail lamp, with two round clear lens turn indicators flanking on its both sides.
While the Renegade Commando might have scored good in terms of visual appeal, it does lack in some good contemporary features. You do miss out on some modern bits which are usual in the motorcycles of this category nowadays, such as a comprehensive and digital instrument console, LED lights and new-age suspension.
Nevertheless, the UM Renegade Commando, with its bulky stance and conventional cruiser design language, ensures that you do get a second glance whenever you hit the road on it.
Braking and Handling
While the performance of the UM Renegade Commando is something you might not have felt in the other cruisers of this range, it is the ride and handling of the motorcycle which takes it back again to its conventional roots. The Renegade Commando employs 41mm hydraulic telescopic forks at the front and twin hydraulic coil springs at the rear. This suspension setup, as expected, is set up on a softer ride to ensure that the motorcycle feels plush especially while travelling long distances on highways.
The bigger 16-inch front wheel and 15-inch rear wheel come shod with fatter tyres which feel planted and do provide enough grip on both straight stretches and corners. The bike weighs 179kgs, which do make it a bit heavy and slightly bigger to manoeuvre in city traffic, but it is this heft of the motorcycle which makes it feel planted on open roads. The braking setup too is conventional as well, with a 280mm disc at the front and a 130mm drum. We would have liked to see a rear disc unit as well as the presence of ABS on the bike of this size, though.
