I just got hands on my scooter yesterday. I’ll be honest the translucent panels is not what I expected it to be. Unless you’re told that this scooter has translucent panels installed you’ll hardly notice :neutral_face: And it is nearly impossible to get a photo which will advocate the transparency.

But I’m loving it :heart_eyes: It is not as weirder as I thought it would be. Did team tried self luminous paint for the frame along with translucent panels? @abhishek.balaji @tarun

Self luminous paint requires sunlight to recharge. With panels in the way blocking most of the light, it would be even more of a pointless idea than these panels.

That’s because unlike the RH side that has a clean skeleton to show, the LH side has an unsightly wiring harness that cannot be tucked away, and that was clearly forgotten about when this joke of an idea was being brainstormed. So an almost opaque panel is how they achieved translucency while avoiding being laughed at.

Come to think about it, these panels are very appropriate metaphors for the company as a whole.

@abhishek.balaji can a 450 owner buy a translucent panel sets? I wanted to do a DIY LED lighting on the sides

Not exactly, since they will be only installing for S1 owners. But not to hard to get them as well from any 450x S1 owner who aren’t interested in the panels! Be wise and walk away from any deal which involves large amt. of money in exchange of the panels IMO.

Gonna stay away from anyone asking money if something that they received it for free, I asked this since they had a previous discussion that they would sell this if there is a demand

This being limited edition - I remember this S1 won’t be made again.

And rightly, it should stay that way. Otherwise the collector edition and pre-orders won’t have a meaning.

There might be some other series which they may come up.

They got it for free. But, If it’s being sold at reasonable cost, that’s okay I feel.

There’s been a long time, but, I haven’t received any mail/update regarding the installation of translucent panels for my 450X (also called EC) @abhishek.balaji Can you please check and provide an approximate date of installation here in Ahmedabad?

An update on the panels. The manufacturer of the panels had to shut down operations due to lockdown. Finding the right provider with getting quality colour setting right and durability took time. They’ve started but it’ll be slow. Hence their was delay in updates and the process is slow. @Indore would be still a few days and five sets would be coming in the first lot.
