It has been 11 months of me owning Ather 450 in Chennai and in my daily commute i still come across so many enquires from strangers about the scooter. Some ask at the signal, some at middle of the road, some follow me home, and some when I am speeding at 80km .
It will be really fun answering their questions, many enquire about the performance, some get deep into the specs, many ask about the range n charging infrastructure, if i have time and if i feel confident i do give them the key and tell them to go for a ride, finally when i say the price their reaction will be priceless .
I was returning back home after organising the sunday early morning group ride and this happened. From far i saw a Lamborghini Huracan idling on the side of road, my subconscious mind automatically made me slow down, i went passed it and stopped a little further and wanted to having a good glance at the high-end sports car. To my surprise the driver side door opened and the guy came running to towards me. He asked me is it yours and i said yes, His next question can i drive it Without any hesitation i said yes and changed the mode to sports n gave it, he was so happy and he went Wheeeeeeeeee.
He was all smiles when he came back . He loved it and said its so powerful. He said he was wanting to get a test ride since long time and he was lucky today. He may own a Lamborghini but he doesn’t have an Ather . Wish i had the 450X with me this time and he would have totally gone crazy on Warp mode. After thanking me for the drive he went back to his Lambo and started the 5.2L V10 and went Vrooooooooom.
Of all the enquires so far this was the best till date. In return i should have asked for a ride in Lambo missed it .
