The Auto Expo 2018 was a grand show with loads of brands showcasing their to-be-launched motorbikes at the arena. One of the motorbike brands that caught our eye was the UM Renegade. Straight from the heart, UM, one of the most premium brands is ready to shake the Indian motorbike community with its new make called the Duty Ace.
This is the second in next line of its Duty series after the Duty S. With all new features and better performance promise, this new looking motorbike is all set to launch in the next few months.

The Duty series from UM is fairly affordable for the Indian motorbike community. The Ace is estimated to be at the starting price of 1.29 lakhs, slightly higher than its counterpart, the Duty S priced at 1.10 lakhs.
Renegade duty ace is recognised under the cruiser family and sets as the best competitor to Suzuki Intruder and Bajaj Avenger Street 220. One of the best features is its oil cooling system and the 5 speed with clutch transmission type. You can fully rely on radial tubeless tyres that will balance you well throughout your ride with the best suspension.
When it comes to design, the Duty Ace daunts a classic look from the stylish American cruiser. However, its mechanical and electrical characteristics are similar to that of Duty-S, its sibling.
