The bike might be sporty, but with the sporty features, the bike is also very simple.
UM is an American motorcycle manufacturer. UM is marketed in Bangladesh through Runner Automobiles Bangladesh. The cruiser culture in the USA is quite big, as it is a huge country and they need comfortable bikes to travel over thousands of kilometers. UM has attempted to contribute to the culture by bringing two of their top-of-the-line 150cc cruisers, the UM Renegade Commando and the UM Renegade Sport, as the UM Runner Renegade Commando and the UM Runner Renegade Sport.
The UM Runner Renegade Sport was made for the freeways and highways. These bikes have been made to be very comfortable and good for riding for long periods. The forward footpegs, low saddle height, elevated handlebars, and round headlight are the common traits of a cruiser. The bigger advantage of this cruiser is the color. The bike comes in only one color variant with only one type of decal. This gives the bike a clean and minimalistic look.
The UM Runner Renegade Sport comes with a very simple light setup. The headlight is a halogen light with a huge reflector. The light is a bit less for the highways, as the bike would do better with LED headlights. The bike does not get any fancy DRL, which gives the bike a very clean and simple look. The bike has an LED taillight, which is good for the bike to be noticed from a distance. The indicators are also LED and have a retro look.
The UM Runner Renegade Sport comes with a very unique instrument cluster. The instrument cluster is a minimalistic instrument cluster that has a speedometer (analog), a fuel gauge, an odometer, and other necessary indicators. The instrument cluster is situated on the tank of the bike. The fuel cap is situated beside the instrument cluster. This simple and minimalistic instrument cluster allows the rider to ride without having any distractions while riding.
The UM Runner Renegade Sport was made to be comfortable. The bike has a very low seat height, like most cruisers, at 770mm. But the low seat height also comes with stretched foot-pegs, which means, a tall person will not feel very uncomfortable with the short seat. The bike is perfect for anyone who wants to sit on the bike for a long period. The bike comes with a huge tank of 18liters just like the Commando version, which allows the rider to forget about fuel on the highway.
The height, width, length, and weight of the UM Runner Renegade Sport are 1350mm, 900mm, 2290mm, and 159kg. The bike is fairly heavy, so fair warning to new riders. And the bike has a comparatively small wheelbase of about 1550mm, which allows the bike to be stable at the corners and also allows the bike to lean comfortably.
Engine and Transmission:
The UM Runner Renegade Sport comes with a cruising dedicated engine. The engine has 4-strokes, 2-valves, a single-cylinder, and 150cc. The engine is also fuel injected. The engine is tuned to give 14.5BHP of power at 9500rpm and 12Nm of torque at 8000rpm. The engine is expected to have a mileage of 35kmpl.
The UM Runner Renegade Sport comes with a wet multi-plate clutch. It comes with a 5-speed gearbox. The gear shifter is also stretched to the front for cruising comfort. The power delivery over the gears is expected to be linear and smooth as well.
Brakes, Suspension, and Wheels:
The UM Runner Renegade Sport comes with a full disc setup. The front has a disc and the rear is a basic drum brake. The disc can be expected to have good feedback during emergency braking. The rear drum is a bit disappointing for the bike. This makes the rear brake of the bike a bit weaker than its competitors.
The UM Runner Renegade Sport comes with telescopic forks for the front suspension, which are expected to be suitable for cruising. The rear gets two spring-loaded forks as the suspension. The rear suspension will not be very suitable for cornering. However, for a pillion, the rear suspension will be very suitable.
The UM Runner Renegade Sport comes with 110/90 and 140/90 section tires. The rear tire being fat and thick, the bike is expected to be quite stable and good at keeping grip at the corners. The bike has alloy wheels, unlike most cruisers. These spoke wheels last longer than spoked wheels.
