  • The bike, presumably spotted at a dealer meet, features an air-cooled and fuel injected motor

  • Alloys are shod with block-pattern tyres
  • One of the bikes even gets front and rear crash guard, hard panniers on the sides and a top box - all of which are likely to be accessories
UM DSR ADV with accessories

UM India seems to have something interesting brewing, particularly for adventure enthusiasts. The DSR Adventure has been spotted in Delhi, likely at a dealer event. Surprisingly, the bike isn’t camouflaged. It comes with proper ADV styling complete with a beak-like front fender, large tank extensions, engine cowl and an underseat exhaust. There’s a halogen headlamp along with LED indicators and tail lamp as well. One of the test mules feature crash guards at both the front and rear, hard-case panniers and a hard-case top box as well. However, these fitments are likely to be optional.

As expected from an adventure motorcycle, the bike comes with long-travel upside down forks up front and a rear monoshock. Interestingly, the motorcycle employs alloys shod with block pattern tyres instead of spoke wheels. This makes it more of a soft-roader than an out-and-out mudplugger like the Hero Xtreme 200. Brakes include a front disc with two-piston sliding callipers and a rear disc. Oddly though, the bike doesn’t seem to have even a single-channel ABS.

The engine appears to be an air-cooled, fuel-injected unit. The engine casing looks similar to the one in the UM Hypersport sold in international market. That motorcycle’s 223cc air-cooled motor pushes out 16.2PS at 7500rpm and 17.69Nm at 5500rpm, and comes mates to a 5-speed gearbox.

We expect this motorcycle to be priced between Rs 1.3 lakh - Rs 1.5 lakh (ex-showroom). The bike is likely to be launched in early 2019. Its chief competitor is expected to be the upcoming Hero XPulse 200.
