The Ather 450X, a more premium and updated model of the Ather 450 electric scooter, will be launched on January 28, 2020. The new Ather 450X is expected to have "new features, better specifications, and more intelligent features" than the Ather 450 that is currently on sale. The Ather 450X will be launched across the Asian markets. Ather Energy has already started receiving pre-orders for the new 450X through invite codes that are being sent out to existing Ather owners and others.
The company has already released teaser videos of the Ather 450X, and the new premium scooter is expected to be offered in different colours, as well as packed with more features. The current Ather 450 is only available in white. The Ather 450 is already an impressive product, and offers a level of performance and hi-tech features which has set a benchmark in the electric two-wheeler industry.
Firstly, the 450X is going to be a refreshed version of the scooter. The continuous hitting of the F5 button, as well as the hints of different shades of banana, suggest that the 450X will be a colourful alternative to the monotonous 450. It will sort of be like what the iPhone 5C was to the iPhone 5. The 450X is likely to pack a slightly larger battery which promises more range and faster charging times. Currently, the 450 can cover 75km on a single charge and can charge upto 80 per cent in a single hour with a fast-charging unit. And since Ather is already terming the 450X as a sportier offering, the scooter is likely to pack more oomph, helping it achieve a top speed in excess of 80kmph. We are hoping that the 450X does even better and can finally give the likes of the TVS NTorq 125 and the Aprilia SR 125 a good run for its money.
