New startup from Bangalore
sounds too good to be true.
Possible exaggeration of claims. Core team from Ather and other competitors !!
Theoretically possible to achieve all the claims, but doubtful at the price…
they could be cutting cost on screen, smartness, software, overall experience…
This features are totally unrealistic
Price: 4.2 kw battery means double the capacity of ather. Means battery only will be costing around 1 lakh.
Range : max it can give 200 km range with this battery capacity. Assuming ather power.
Battery weight: 6 kg seriously??? One more false claim.
Charging time : all we know faster we charge, shorter the lifespan of battery.
Speed: claimed pickup is more than 200 cc bike.
If these features provide in 1.5 lakh. People will forget ICE bike
0% to 50% charge in 20 minutes? I call bluff!
Battery Price - I think approximate consumer price is around 15k per Kw or less. So, it should be 60k… Article mentioned 10 year contract with Panasonic will get them lower price… So we can assume they should be able to get < 50k if not even cheaper.
Charging - Fast charging will degrade the life. But that is where technology moves… and consumers are accepting it too. See all the phones and laptops… Focus is on reducing the weight, increasing the speed of charging without much heat…
Yeah, life of vehicle is much more than that of laptops and phones. But, faster charging will be the norm… Even 450x focuses on faster charging.
Btw, this could all be wrong, bluff, may not come out at all… but we dont get anything by thinking that way

You Should wait for the mark 2 and then decide form 450x .and then buy
Might be better option to 450x buyers
If it is anywhere around 1.1 L and it meets all the claims then for sure it is a better buy than the 450x.
If claims are true book pre-order…
These claims maybe fake and just to collect Pre-order amounts from public and escape later…be careful in payments before taking its Test ride practically.
