Hi All, I am Vignesh and I am from Chennai.
After waiting for a long time and in a dilemma on whether to buy 450x or not , I finally purchased it on Dec 2020 and took delivery on 18th Jan 2021.
The delivery experience was smooth and @tarun was present in Ather Space Chennai , but unfortunately not able to meet him on that day as he was busy on a call.
My initial impression on the 450x is very positive. The vehicle is Smooth AF even in very speedy conditions and on uneven roads as well. The pick up is outstanding and especially in warp mode if some one sits in the pillion seat and they do not hold something they can fall from the scooter , the pick up is that fast in warp mode.
I am able to achieve around 92kmph with a pillion in warp mode. I believe it goes even faster than that but it is not showing in the display.
I shall directly go with explaining the cons that i see as most of us know the vehicle is spectacular.
Suspension : Could have been little soft like TVS Jupiter , I think the stiffness is kept for stability.
Break Lever : The quality is top notch , but when riding for a long duration palm is paining a little bit as the lever is hard.
Software : When riding at more than 90kmph the software soft reboots itself.
Navigation : The onboard navigation by default search only in Bangalore location at first and then only checks in Chennai , i.e. if i check for a street in Chennai and in Bangalore also a similar street is there with same name it shows the Bangalore street only. In order to show the Chennai street i have to type Chennai. Also not all the locations are available in the onboard navigation and even in the map in the Ather app but the same location is available in the Google maps app.
Ather App : The App is taking some time to connect every time when i open i.e. it takes time to sync at least 6 seconds or even more.
Overall i liked the 450x so much and most of the issues are software only and can be fixed with the OTA.
Please let me know if any of guys face the same issue as mine.
