I understand. But the right side grip fitting well and no such thing on the left side with sharp edges seems a bit strange. The circular part of the grip that is in the end seems hanging rather than the fixed part of the right one. I’m referring to the gap behind the grip and not the bigger gap on both the sides of the handle.

IMHO Ather Labs is their way of trying to give the masses more ‘bang for their buck’. Unfortunately nothing can be done at this point to upgrade hardware. Doesn’t look like much can be done on the software as well due to hardware and other limitations, so they have to keep the product alive in some way!

Hey @abhishek.balaji how great would it be if you guys use the reverse throttle (used for regen) for quick reverse when the scooter is stationary. This could be multifunctional, use for regen as usual and for quick reverses. @tarun anyway you guys already use jio esim, a tie-up with jio/reliance stores for fast chargers would be phenomenal !

If I’m not mistaken, this was a topic of conversation earlier too and there were concerns raised about how that would be risky because it is natural for people to twist the throttle in the reverse direction a bit without realising it when stationary at traffic stops, etc., resulting in reversing into the vehicle behind. Considering there is anyway a shortcut to enable park assist using the brakes and ignition, I guess this should take care of most quick reverse needs albeit with one second of extra effort, right?

Agree with the Reliance tie-up, BTW! :smiley:

If WiFi is part of published vehicle specification, why is it not available to users? What is it signifies as part of published specifications?

Looks like there is a piece of conflicting information published, While the Main page does not show Wifi-connectivity as an option, The support page does show the wifi connectivity supported.

FYI the hardware does support wifi, it’s software barred. But I don’t know why they are holding back, I mean just enable it for low connectivity in 4g. it is a perfectly available option and Andriod OS always supports it from the core.
