UM Lohia Two Wheeler Pvt. Ltd. has announced the winner of the recently concluded ‘Win a Renegade’ contest. The contest, which saw over 10,000 participants, concluded with Mr. Dasharath Desai of Gandhinagar winning the mega price, which is a special edition Renegade Commando.
The ‘Win a Renegade’ was an online contest which required a lot of skills. The interested participants needed to register online on the official website of Motorbikes India and get the ticket for the contest. Once the entry was confirmed, the actual task began.
The UM ‘Win a Renegade’ saw a unique task to be performed online, which required a lot of skills. The task was named ‘Spot the Ball’. The participants were sent a photograph of a cricket match where the batsman has stroked the ball away. However, the twist here is that the ball has been removed from the picture. Now the participants had to mark the location of the ball on the picture had it been on the picture.
On winning a one-of-a-kind Gloss Red UM Renegade Commando, Mr. Dasharath Desai said that it was really amazing to win the contest as he couldn’t imagine that he would be winning it. He is super excited to show off and brag about this beast. He has heard a lot about this bike and would now be delighted to ride it.
The UM renegade Commando is powered by a 279.5 cc, single cylinder engine with fuel injected technology. The engine is capable of producing a highest power of 24.8 bhp at 8,500 revs per minute along with a peak torque of 23 Nm at 7,000 revs per minute.
