I am about to complete around 2 months with Ather 450X. To start with a 1 word about the scooter, it is a breeze to ride it. Whoever has seen it till now is very impressed with it and we can get few enquiries in road at signal of curious people around.
The performance is very good. Better than many IC 2 wheelers. Before people start from signals, we would have completed half the road. To confess, I have many times missed the turns just because the ride was so enjoyable.
The warp mode is very good and it actually gives very good range. Even though, the dash board shows 45-50 KM in full charge, in real world experience, it is giving more than that.
Now, the parts that are to be improved. As there is no foot rest for pillion riders who sit on a single side, it is almost a no go for them. So, anyone mom wears only sari and not any other attire, can’ take our mom’s for a good ride.
Next, the mobile app synchronisation is not very accurate. The home page shows old data from previous rides and the battery level and range shows from even before the ride. And sometimes it crashes. Even though there are some hiccups with the mobile app, not taking that as a big thing as our previous vehicles didn’t have any app connectivity. This has to be fixed for sure and improved.
Comfort wise, I feel, the scooter is great for short rides.
And, the boot space is big and it has very good volume. But, the shape is somewhat irregular. So, trying to fit in a regular shaped objects like a big tablet would not settle easily in the flat surface below. But, without the helmet, it can be placed.
