Ather 450x specifications

Ather 450x is a popular premium electric scooter that rivals the likes of Ola S1 Pro, Bajaj Chetak electric version, Bounce Infinity E1, and TVS i-Qube, amongst others. The Ather model, unlike many others in the market, has been built ground up for India and in India. This translates massively when it comes to the integration of useful practicality traits that Indians have come to expect into its modern minimalistic design elements. Design features include a full LED lighting system, a modern touchscreen colour TFT instrument controls, exposed colour-coded sub-frame, a flat floorboard, adequate under-seat storage, and an array of colour options aggregate the package very well. 

Powering the Ather 450x is a 6kW motor that produces 26Nm of torque and is paired to a 2.9kWh IP67-rated battery pack — this combination can propel the electric scooter from 0-40kmph in just 3.3 seconds. In ECO mode, the Ather 450x manages to deliver a true range of 85km on a single charge. The scooter charges from 0-80 percent in 3 hours and 35 mins. Mechanical specifications include 90 section 12-inch (f/r), disc brakes (f/r) with a combined braking system, telescopic front suspension, and more.

The Ather 450x is priced between Rs 1,28,321 and Rs 1,50,000 (ex-showroom) depending on which state you are purchasing it in.
