I want to express my sincere gratitude for the incredible opportunity to test ride the F77 Recon for a week. It has been an exhilarating experience, and I am truly grateful for the chance to explore the capabilities of this groundbreaking electric vehicle.
My Detailed Review of the F77 is as follows:
Technology and Integration
Is it Costly?
Performance : The F77’s performance exceeded my expectations. The instant torque delivery and smooth acceleration made every ride an absolute delight.
Range : The range of the F77 is commendable. Throughout the week, I found it to be reliable for both short commutes and longer rides, providing the convenience needed for daily use.
Design : The design of the F77 is not only aesthetically pleasing but also functional. The attention to detail in both form and function showcases Ultraviolette Automotives’ commitment to creating a top-tier electric vehicle.
Handling : The bike’s handling is responsive and precise, making it a joy to maneuver through different road conditions. The lightweight frame contributes to a nimble and agile riding experience.
Technology : The integration of cutting-edge technology, such as the connected features and smart display, enhances the overall riding experience. It’s clear that Ultraviolette Automotives has invested in creating a bike that aligns with modern advancements.
SoC Reliability : The F77’s battery life exceeded my expectations, providing ample range for daily commuting without the need for frequent recharging.
Price : The initial cost of the F77 may be a barrier for some potential buyers, although the long- term savings on fuel and maintenance costs should be considered.
Is it Costly? : Certainly! It’s clear that, based on my thorough follow-ups since 2021, including testing the prototype on Sep 2022 and noting the changes made, I see the product as a value for money proposition.
My Evaluation goes beyond just the price, taking into account the tangible improvements and differences between versions.
This comprehensive understanding adds depth to my perspective, emphasizing the value derived from the product’s evolution and enhancements over time.
Storage Space : With Panniers, It ll not be an Issue
Seat Cushion : Bad Seat Cushion on long rides can lead to Discomfort and Fatigue due to Inadequate Support and Pressure Distribution.
This can result in back pain, numbness, and overall discomfort, affecting the ability to enjoy and endure extended periods of sitting during long rides.
TPMS : It is not a Necessary Accessory. But It maybe useful for Safety Enhancements, Range Optimization, Battery Efficiency and Real Time Monitering.
As an EV enthusiast, I find it challenging to pinpoint significant cons because the product has effectively addressed and fulfilled most aspects. Its positive evolution, from prototype to current version, showcases a commitment to improvement. This comprehensive fulfillment of expectations makes it challenging to identify notable drawbacks.
I want to extend my appreciation to Mr. Narayan Subramaniam and the Entire Team for their dedication to pushing the boundaries of electric mobility. Testing the F77 has not only been a pleasure but also a testament to the innovative spirit driving Ultraviolette Automotives.
Thank you once again for this incredible opportunity. I look forward to witnessing the continued success of the F77 and future developments from your esteemed brand.
But the weight of the battery alone must offset the lightweight frame, I guess. Have heard it’s very front heavy bike as most the weight is high up and towards the front of the bike. How was your experience regarding that? Did the handle felt heavy while turning under braking?
And I fully agree on part that they are the current epitome in India for e2w the ease of manoeuvring on both the machines is flawless till now. The uv feels nimble for its weight when you’re up and running on a standstill you do feel it’s a bit front heavy tail number plate is a bit flimsy and the mirrors vibrate during rapid acceleration.
I didn’t mean the whole mirror from the stem is two part system where just the mirror surface moves at angles but that mirror surface vibrates on windy days in combat and ballistic when you aggressive on the throttle. I feel they should have a better engineered mirror and the flimsily flying rear plate on the tail maybe add a rod or something to support it.
Actually no as soon as the wheels moves it’s kinda weightless due to the balanced position you’re in it feels front heavy only on standstill.
Plus if possible ask them how are they gonna homologate the new 7 or so bands of regen to older bikes via ota as they currently only have 3 bands in settings but I know for sure this ota is coming to the F77.
