Riding Ather 450 from Bangalore to Kochi

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!

Good Morning :sunrise_over_mountains:

Today I will have to start late as the charging at my friend’s place is not happening…

I have corrected the L-N polarity, checked the grounding, voltage looks bright in the 60W bulb…but still red in the charger…

So will wait for Tata charging station to open …then charge and go is the plan B.

Why don’t you visit the mysore temporary ather set up. They’ll let you charge for sure ! They’ll probably even have a strip down fast charger that you could use. It’s in Hinkal

Charging at TATA URS Charging station after discussing with manager.

Blinking red once in a while. Showed C004 error once and re started. Anyway it’s charging now.

Need to charge enough to reach Ather temporary charging

Is the error still persistent? If yes, then only charge till you can reach the Ather’s temporary charging point.

Nope after hard restart it’s charging now…but slow…will charge for 15% and head to Ather charging

The Ather location will most likely have the DC charger - ergo - expect to wait for an hour more than your AC charger.

An hour lesser I suppose.

Maddur to Mysore completely drained the battery? Or you took some detours? :joy: The ather location must be just 7-8Km right? So you don’t have to charge for too long. Didn’t think you’d run into such issues so early on in Mysore itself. Plus there are a few ather owners in Mysore. Could have maped their chargers or used their V2 chargers too.

Ya there where many options😀…but I was confident that I can charge at my friend’s place… everything is checked there…so I reached at 8km range left…there it didn’t work…then on searching a 5 km radius nothing worked…at last ended up at 0% in Tata…now got to wait till 15% to start motor to reach ather point…all set waiting for getting 15%…taking more than an hour for some reason…
