UM Renegade Thor Electric Bike – Price
The new UM Renegade Thor Electric Bike is priced at Rs. 9.9 lakh (ex-showroom) in India. Readers may note that the bike is not assembled in India but will be imported as completely built unit (CBU). That is the reason for such a high cost as government of India has imposed higher custom duties on the automotive imports. However, the company is planning to assemble the bike in India in few months which is expected to bring down the price at half, probably around Rs. 4.9 lakh (ex-show room).
