UM Motorcycles, the Indian arm of the American motorcycle maker UM International LLC, along with Lohia Auto, today announced an increase in price for their product range in India.

Commenting on the price revision, Rajeev Mishra, director, UML said, “This price revision is on account of increase in the cost of raw material and other cost of operations. We have rationalised the costs, but taken care that impact is minimal. We also continue to offer finance at attractive interest rates for customers to enter the brand.”
