Ather En­ergy 340 and 450

Bike India - - IGNITION -

ATHER EN­ERGY HAVE LAUNCHED TWO ELEC­TRIC SCOOT­ERS, THE 340 and the 450. They are priced at Rs 1.10 lakh and Rs 1.25 lakh (both prices are on-road, Delhi, and in­clu­sive of FAME sub­sidy).

The 340 is the pro­duc­tion model of the pre­vi­ously teased S340. The BLDC mo­tor in the 340 pro­duces a peak power of al­most six PS and a peak torque of 20 Nm. Ather claim that the scooter at­tains 40 km/h from a stand­still within 5.1 sec­onds. Pow­ered by a 1.92-kWh lithium-ion bat­tery, the 340 has a claimed range of 60 km per charge and a top speed of 70 km/h.

If you thought the 340 was im­pres­sive, wait till you see what the 450 is ca­pa­ble of. Al­though both scoot­ers look sim­i­lar, the 450 dis­misses 0-40 km/h in a mere 3.9 sec­onds. A 2.4-kWh lithium-ion bat­tery pow­ers a BLDC mo­tor that pro­duces a peak power of 7.34 PS and a peak torque of 20.5 Nm. It can achieve a top speed of 80 km/h and has a range of 75 km per charge. Both the scoot­ers come with an ar­ray of ad­vanced con­nec­tiv­ity op­tions and at­trac­tive ser­vice pack­ages. Ather also claim that the com­pany will re­im­burse the charg­ing cost in­curred by the cus­tomers.

Ather En­ergy are now ac­cept­ing pre-or­ders in a limited num­ber. From 8 June on­wards, test rides will be avail­able at AtherS­pace at Indi­rana­gar, Ben­galuru.
