Cant Turn on the Ather 450x at Speed Above 50KMPH

Hi, Recently noticed at a speed above 50kmph if the motor kill switch is engaged the motor will never turn on back until standstill or OFF/ON the key switch, is that the feature? if so what’s the purpose it never allowed to turn on again at a speed above 50kmph?

Just to know the purpose

Thank you

I’m curious as to what is the use case of using the kill switch while the vehicle is in motion?

Yep that’s intentional. If the motor is turned on when the scooter is moving at higher speeds (~40kmph), there’s a chance of damage to internal systems due to a sudden rush of current.

Accidentally tend to switch off while having a kid in the front seat and that’s how came to this question.
