Ultraviolette launches International-spec F77 for European Markets at EICMA 2023

Ultraviolette Automotive has taken the wraps off the updated F99 electric factory racing platform, which was earlier shown at the Indian Auto Expo. There have been a bunch of changes here now including a liquid-cooled powertrain, active aerodynamics and much more. 

F99 racing platform

This platform has been two years in the making and the company says that aerodynamics have played a really important role in maximising the top speed of the F99. The air intakes at the front channel the air and compression behind forms an air curtain over the rider’s helmet at high speed. Carbon-fibre winglets on each side of the bike are activated when leaned over to further reduce drag and have 30 degrees of actuation. 

The F99 makes 90kW peak power and weighs 178kg. It can go from 0-100kph in a claimed 3 seconds and has a top speed of 265kph, which is comparable to some Japanese 600cc supersports. The battery is still an air-cooled unit while the motor and controller both are liquid-cooled. The company says that the F99 will be launched globally in 2025. 

The F99 uses a different frame to the F77 to handle the performance and has some top-spec components included Ohlins suspension at both ends as well as Brembo monobloc calipers. It uses 400-volt battery architecture as opposed to the F77’s 60-volt and even has an underbraced milled swingarm. The wiring harness and safety protocols have been significantly strenghtened for safety with higher voltage. 

European-spec F77

The European-spec F77 e-bike is essentially the highest-spec Limited variant and thus has peak output figures of 30kW and 100Nm. Seeing as it carries forward the same 10.3kWh battery pack, its range should be comparable to the India-spec bike.

The F77 will be priced between 9,000 – 11,000 Euros subject to federal / state government incentives and taxes. Ultraviolette will begin accepting registrations on its official website from November 15.
