Riding Ather 450 from Bangalore to Kochi

Could you also post the trip meter photos ? Would love to see efficiency of your ride. The current ride shows only duration and distance and not efficiency.

I will do it next time…In am in connectivity lite subscription…so not getting the ride log in mobile…in system until the existing subscription expires it’s not allowing to.upgrade to pro…have raised a ticket to get it done from backend…

Ya me neither that’s why I keep resetting my trib B meter between charges and rides. To monitor my efficiency. You could do that too.
Also what’s the tyre pressure you’re maintaining?

George, could you also post the locations where you stop for breaks/charging etc?

Tyre pressure: 30-30

Wow. Do you really need to be riding so efficient and so slow? I’m sure you can cruise at 40-45kmph and make it to Maddur, charge and then to mysore.

You could try overinflating the rear tyre just a little to increase efficiency. So you don’t have to creep along at under 30kmph on the highway.

I think a lot of us would love to see this route if in case your Google maps app has plotted your route through location.

Sure…it’s a scenic route…I will share in the evening

Little bit…only when I was not finding the place when I reached as per Ather map…then I put Google maps and reached the correct location

Might seem a bit risky, but maybe try filling your tyres to 32, 32, front and back. This might help with better efficiency, but you might have to be really careful while riding. If I remember correctly, the recommended pressure with pillion is 32 for back. So the front tyre should be able to handle the extra pressure too since it’s the same.

Nevertheless, don’t want you risking anything unless you’re confident. Have a safe trip! Please continue posting pictures!
