UM Lohia India has silently introduced the 2018 UM Renegade Commando Classic with Carburettor motor. The new carburettor version is priced at Rs 1.95 lakh (ex-showroom, India), making it around Rs 6,000 cheaper than the fuel-injected variant of the Renegade Commando Classic. This is bit a surprise move from UM Lohia, as most of the motorcycle makers in India are now introducing the updated version of their bikes with ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) and fuel injection technology.

Except for the carburettor motor, the UM Renegade Commando Classic remains largely identical the FI model. Design and mechanics of the bike remains unchanged. Powering the motorcycle is a 279.5cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine that is paired to a 5-speed gearbox. This carburettor motor is capable of producing 23.3bhp of power and 23Nm of torque, which is lesser than the FI unit. The fuel-injected unit churns out 24.8bhp of power and 23Nm of torque. The carburettor model is 1.5bhp less powerful, though the torque output is identical in both the versions.

What's surprising is that UM has not added ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) in this version. This comes at a time, when ABS is soon going to be mandatory for all bikes above 125cc capacity in India. The company hasn't revealed new details about the bookings and the waiting period of this bike. The Renegade Commando Classic with carburettor model is yet to reach dealerships. The motorcycle is relatively expensive than most of the competitors including Royal Enfield Classic 350, Thunderbird 350, Jawa and Jawa Forty-Two.
