Coinciding with India’s Chandrayaan-3 moon landing, Ultraviolette launched the exclusive F77 Space Edition. This special motorcycle pays homage to India’s space achievements and showcases innovation and excellence. Limited to just 10 units, the F77 Space Edition comes with unique features, including a drag-reducing white paint job, “Space Edition” emblems, tank grips, an aerodynamic wheel cover, and Pirelli Diablo Rosso II tires.
What caught attention beyond the announcements was the online interaction between Ultraviolette’s Narayan Subramaniam and Mahindra & Mahindra’s Chief Design Officer, Pratap Bose.
Subramaniam’s tweet featuring both the Thar.e and F77 Space Edition hinted at a potential collaboration. Bose responded positively, expressing interest in future collaboration possibilities. The excitement was palpable as both parties hinted at remarkable innovations on the horizon.
While the future partnership remains uncertain, the world of electric vehicles and automotive design holds limitless possibilities. The anticipation for groundbreaking innovations is stirring the automotive world.
