The Ultraviolette F77 Mach 2 can now create a lifestyle around it, with tech and power

The Ultraviolette F77 Mach 2 electrifies the streets, not just as a new model but as a significant upgrade over its predecessor, the Mach 1. This isn’t just a new coat of paint; it’s a performance leap forward. For existing Mach 1 owners, Ultraviolette offers a free upgrade to the Mach 2 software, a commendable move that shows their commitment to their customer base. This upgrade unlocks features like switchable traction control with multiple modes, a welcome addition for safety-conscious riders.

The Mach 2 boasts a more powerful motor and improved battery management, translating to a thrilling peak torque of 100 Nm and an impressive range of 323 kilometres. This shatters range anxiety for most riders and positions the Mach 2 as a viable option for longer journeys. But how does it fare against traditional internal combustion engine (ICE) rivals in its price bracket? While the Mach 2 might lack the top speed of some ICE competitors, its electric nature offers instant torque, making for a thrilling acceleration experience that most ICE bikes can’t match.

Additionally, electric power’s low maintenance costs and environmental friendliness are undeniable advantages. However, charging infrastructure remains a key point to consider. While Ultraviolette is expanding its fast-charging network, it might not be as widespread as traditional gas stations. Additionally, the initial price tag might be a hurdle for some. Overall, the F77 Mach 2 is a significant upgrade that cements Ultraviolette’s place as a serious contender in the electric motorcycle market. It offers a thrilling ride, an impressive range, and a commitment to customer satisfaction. If you crave a powerful and stylish electric motorcycle with a touch of future tech, the Mach 2 is definitely worth a test ride.

The Exterior 

I mean, try and find a screw or a bolt that is visible to you. I bet you won’t be able to because the people at Ultraviolette have gone to great lengths to hide them and make the design as flawless as possible. Stand at any given angle for this product; all you will hear is wow! It is almost like the design team had the first say about the whole philosophy, and then the engineering team had to work on those guidelines. 

Then you come to the crash guards. I mean, wow, what a great bit of kit this one is. They look like winglets more than anything, and yes, they do save your motorcycle from crashes. Finally, I would like to raise my hands and praise the Ultravilotte lords for the edgy graphics and the colour options because, boy, oh boy, they make it look like a motorcycle that I have never seen before!

In short, I’m in love with how it looks.

Riding 

From a riding perspective, this is also a gem. It is blisteringly fast, the rider’s triangle is spot on, and, as a matter of fact, there are very few faults that you can say about the dynamics. However, what we have to keep in mind is the fact that it weighs quite an ample amount. I mean, it will easily trick you into thinking that it is light based on how fast it accelerates. However, it is when you brake. That is when you realize the amount of weight it carries, and somehow, it becomes its only Achilles heel in this section.

Let me break it down for you. The acceleration on the motorcycle is phenomenal, from 30kmph to 80 kmph. It doesn’t let shy one bit from trying to show you why the recon variant is 4 lakhs ex-showroom, but that can bite you if you get carried away. Your braking point of reference has to be further than you would anticipate. The weight is only felt once you let go of the throttle and start pressing for your brake.  And if you think this will brake like an RC390 (previous owner problem), that is not going to happen. That might lead to dangerous places. Other than that, this is a beaut. Stickier tyres might solve the problems, but I don’t think that would be enough. Maybe optional better brakes. Charge-wise, I got the battery down to 12% from 90%. All while riding in Ballistic Mode, it got around 78 odd kms from the Recon version. I ride hard. I am not going to shy away from it.

Lastly, engine braking is back! The 9 levels of regen are an absolutely sweet thing. Thank you again, the gods at Ultraviolette, for thinking like this and giving it for free to Gen 1 customers. Bhala ho aapka!
