Ather’s 450X, Da­mon Hyper­sport and Tri­umph’s new Street Triple S

ATHER EN­ERGY HAS ADDED A NEW prod­uct to its port­fo­lio—the Ather 450X in three mod­els — Lite, Plus and Pro. It has been un­der de­vel­op­ment for the last year and is ex­pected to hit the streets by end of July.

The 450X’s bat­tery has gone up to 2.9kW from the 450’s 2.7kW and now uses the 21700 cells seen on Tes­las, and range has in­creased by 10km to a to­tal of 85km. That’s not all – the mo­tor is up­dated as well, go­ing from 5.4kW to 6kW thus in­creas­ing torque by 6Nm to 26Nm and grade­abil­ity is up to 20 de­grees. The 450X now also gets a Warp mode, that will al­low it to reach 40kmph in just 3.29 sec­onds. The pro­ces­sor too is claimed to be 30 per cent faster. In­ter­est­ingly, de­spite the new tech, Ather has man­aged to shave off 11kg from the stan­dard 450. It will now charge 50 per cent faster on pub­lic charg­ers as well.

Ather En­ergy will also be sell­ing in more cities soon: Mum­bai, Pune, New Delhi and Kolkata are some of the 10 cities on the cards.
