Price (ex-show­room, Delhi) 279.5cc, sin­gle-cylin­der 6-speed, 1 down-5 up 24.8bhp @ 8500rpm 23Nm @ 7000rpm

179kg `1.80 lakh (Mo­jave) `1.89 lakh (Clas­sic) en­gine that makes 24.8bhp and 23Nm of torque. The six-speed gear­box con­tin­ues to bear the same tall ra­tios which make for great high­way runs but is a ma­jor hin­drance dur­ing slow speed sit­u­a­tions as there is very lit­tle low-end torque. You will prob­a­bly have to shift down to suc­cess­fully over­take slow mov­ing traf­fic.

Ef­fi­cient?

That is sadly some­thing we could not quan­tify on our short test run but we fig­ure it will be in the ball park of 30kmpl. With the large fuel tank of 18 litres, it should do nearly 550-odd kilo­me­tres on a tank­ful.

Value?

The two bikes are now on sale at `1.8 lakh for the Mo­jave and `1.89 lakh for the Clas­sic, both prices ex-show­room Delhi. At that price there is no other mo­tor­cy­cle that will pro­vide you as much of an au­then­tic ex­pe­ri­ence as these two. Pro­vided of course you’re will­ing to live with some­thing that’ll not re­ally give you the brag­ging rights that you should have ide­ally had with such a dyed-in-the wool Amer­i­can cruiser.

UM pays homage to the Mo­jave Desert with this spe­cial matte fin­ish colour scheme and badges. The leather sad­dle­bag has a nice fin­ish and comes as stan­dard kit
