The Ultraviolet F77 is the company’s flagship, and the X44 could be a new electric motorcycle in development

However, a more accessible motorcycle would help the Ultraviolette break into the mainstream. The X44 will likely feature a smaller battery pack and motor and better ergonomics for commuting.Pricing up to $Rs 2-2.25 lakh (ex-showroom) will make it considerably cheaper than the F77 while still maintaining a premium positioning compared to other electric motorcycles in the market.

Another guess could be an electric adventure motorcycle. The Ultraviolet X44 could use the same mechanicals as the F77, but with new bodywork, styling, long-travel suspension, spoked wheels and more. Considering the F77 already promises a lot, a sport tourer wouldn’t be far-fetched either, but its touring prowess could be enhanced by a less focused riding position.
