Ultraviolette Automotive has once again showcased India’s prowess in electric motorcycle manufacturing with the unveiling of the latest version of the F99 Factory Racing Program at EICMA 2023. This iteration of the F99 truly stands out, surpassing the brand’s previous debut at the Auto Expo 2023.
The race-spec F99 boasts a liquid-cooled powertrain, delivering an impressive peak power output of 90kW and claiming the title of India’s fastest electric superbike with a top speed of 265kmph. Not only does it accelerate from 0-100kmph in a swift 3 seconds, but it also features advanced aerodynamics. The motorcycle is equipped with winglets and ducts on the front cowl, side panels, and rear-end, incorporating active aerodynamics. The windshield and front cowl ducts play a role in these active aero elements, showcasing innovative design and engineering.
Details about the F99 include a steel hybrid frame, aluminum swingarm, carbon fiber bodywork, a wheelbase of 1400mm, and a tire setup with 120/70 R17 front and 180/55 R17 rear. Impressively, the F99 maintains a lightweight profile with a kerb weight of just 178kg. The fully-faired motorcycle features a gold USD fork and monoshock suspension setup, coupled with carbon fiber covers for the 17-inch wheels.
The CNC machined rear sets, initially introduced during the Auto Expo 2023, remain a highlight, offering adjustability to cater to the rider’s preferred posture on the motorcycle. This commitment to rider comfort and customization adds an extra layer of appeal to the F99.
Ultraviolette Automotive emphasizes that the F99 Factory Racing Program isn’t solely designed for racing; in fact, the production version is set to launch globally in 2025. Enthusiasts can anticipate a price tag of around Rs 8 lakh (ex-showroom) when it hits the market. This will make the Ultraviolette F99 rub shoulders with petrol powered superbikes such as the Triumph Trident 660 and the Kawasaki Z900.
In additional exciting news, Ultraviolette Automotive announced the impending availability of the F77 in Europe. Priced between 9,000 to 11,000 Euros (approximately Rs 8 lakh to Rs 9.19 lakh), the F77 is making its mark globally. Registrations for the European market are set to commence on November 15, 2023. The European-spec F77 mirrors the output figures of the F77 Space Edition, a testament to Ultraviolette’s commitment to delivering cutting-edge electric motorcycles. The F77 is already on sale in the Indian market, and for now is the fastest electric motorcycle on sale here. The F77 is also the electric motorcycle with the highest range sold in India.
