Written by Kanad Kalasur

Electric bike maker Ultraviolette has commenced deliveries of the F77 performance electric motorcycle. The bikes are being handed over to the first customers at the company’s manufacturing plant in Bengaluru.

As of now, there are only a handful of electric two wheelers in this segment. However, most of these are scooters. When compared with the four-wheeler market, one will realise that choice is absent in the electric two-wheeler segment. The company hence aims to offer an EV bike that is comparable in performance to an equivalent of a 300cc motorcycle.
