@niteshosmane In Eco mode I’m getting around 70kms. And in non-Eco mode I’m getting around 55 when I’m alone. But I should mention that I’m quite an aggressive rider and the acceleration of the scooter is too addictive.
Having said that I went hyper-miling a couple of times and was able to get 70kms even with 2 pretty heavy people onboard. I think I can easily cross 80kms if I’m riding alone. But this is on NICE road with consistent riding at around 55kmph.
In real-world scenarios I find the range varies a lot based on your riding style. I rode it from 100% charge to 10% within 42kms once when I was riding in non-Eco mode on terrible roads as if I’m in Baja 1000. Good roads make a big difference to the range.
Once I ran out of battery completely about a km from my house and it still had some pull left to reach home. The scooter switches to Eco mode and reduces acceleration and speed a lot when the charge falls below 10%. Besides its very bad for the battery health to take the battery charge below 10% frequently.
I think riding sensibly and exploiting regen as much as possible should give you more than 70kms in city. But if you are riding on bad roads aggressively and you only use brakes, then you should plan for charging beyond 50kms.
Speaking about regen, some of the observations I have made:
- The regen doesn’t kick in till the charge falls below 80%
- The deceleration stops below 20kmph. So use brakes to come to a complete stop. I wish they allowed regen till the speed falls below 5kmph.
- If the choice is between maintaining constant speed vs accelerating and then decelerate using regen, then maintaining constant speed always better to get better range (kinda obvious given the loss during energy conversion).
One small niggle about the regen I have is that I’m finding it hard to use the front brakes while reversing the accelerator (for regen) with my right hand. And I end up using rear brakes with my left hand. Maybe this is something I need to get used to. Is anybody else facing this issue?
