You can take the Ather 450X or the Ather 450 Plus on lease for upto 36 months, with an option to exit anytime after 12 months.

This is an introductory plan for our early owners who want to opt for the lease plan.

Other than servicing, you’ll have to purchase additional packs such as Ather Connect separately.

There will be a one time application and processing charges of Rs. 1850

So have to approach individually for loan or Ather will look after .

Better go with gold loan if you can, banks like canara, cub, Indian banks are offering very low interest rates and no foreclosure or part payment charges


So better personal loan also advisable

% is more for personal loan

Personal loan interest rate is reducing balance method while the 2-wheeler loan is on a flat rate. 10% flat interest equals to ~18% reducing balance interest rate. All the personal loans, car loans are based on reducing balance while 2-wheeler loans are flat rate.

If you take, Rs 1.5 lakhs on 2-wheeler loan for Ather 450x on 3 years term, you will pay Rs 15,648 more compared to personal loan for the same amount with 12% interest rate. Even if personal loan interest rate is 14%, it will be Rs 10,500 cheaper than 2-wheeler loan with flat rate of 10%. Also, currently, personal loans are starting at 10 to 11% from many banks, hence savings can be even higher.

Check below screenshot and website to compare flat rate loan vs reducing balance loan.


A post was merged into an existing topic: Buy Vs Lease Vs Loan

I checked with following banks for gold loan, not sure if it is reducing balance or flat. CUB - 8% IB - 7% Canara - 7.5%

How long does it usually takes for IDFC loan approval? :thinking:
