Ather Energy is one of the big players when it comes to electric scooters. The 450X is its most premium electric motorcycle in the Indian market. It competes directly with Ola S1 Pro and TVS iQube


The scooter has a certified range of 146 km but in real-life conditions the range can be 105 km. However, to achieve this range, one must use the Smart Eco mode. Other driving modes offered are Eco, Normal, Sport and Warp.


Depending on the weight of the rider, the Ather 450X can reach a top speed of about 90 km/h. It can accelerate from 0-40 kmph in just 3.3 seconds. Warp mode on scooters is quite interesting as it gives full power in an instant. However, it also depletes range quickly.


The trunk space can only hold Ather’s helmet. But still spacious enough to hold little items if the driver does not bring a charger. An amazing attention to detail is the LED strip which comes in very handy at night.


Ather Energy has paid special attention to detail when building the scooter. The sticker on the alloy shows the optimum air pressure for the tire. The turn signals are neatly integrated into the taillights and the front LED daytime running lights. The color of the monoshock depends on the color of the scooter. There is an Ather badge on the handlebars as well as the headlights.


In terms of size, the scooter is quite compact in size. So people with large structures may face some problems. There is a hook behind the front apron that can be used to hang things. On the left side, there is a socket for the charger.


Setting up the suspension on the firmer side, gives the Ather 450X a smooth ride through corners. The chassis responds very well to the driver’s input and changes direction without any fuss.


Braking duties are performed by a disc at the front as well as the rear. The scooter comes with CBS and no ABS. The rear brake is very well calibrated while it takes a while to trust the front brake.


The touchscreen is responsive and shows only important information. Google Maps are useful but they lag quite a bit. The screen also displays a low tire pressure warning because the scooter is equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system.


The Ather 450X is made for people who want their electric scooter to look sporty and they don’t really care much about practicality. The 450X also comes with the benefit of Ather’s charging network called Ather Grid.
