Ather 450 Highlights

The Ather 450 is one of the most feature-packed, premium and sporty electric scooters in India. It comes with a top speed of 80kmph and a 0-40kmph acceleration time of 3.9 seconds thanks to its BLDC motor. The electric motor churns out 5.4kW of power and 20.5Nm of torque. For added convenience, the scooter gets a reverse assist. You can read all the nitty-gritties of the electric scooter in our road test review here. The Ather 450 retails at Rs 1,13,715, on-road Bengaluru.


The Ather 450 sports a large 7-inch touchscreen instrument cluster with features like Google Maps navigation, digital document storage, 24X7 connectivity with an in-built SIM and even over-the-air software upgrades. A dedicated Ather app allows you to check charge status, push navigation, ride statistics and book service remotely. 


As far as the range is concerned, the Ather 450 offers up to 75km per charge (claimed figure). The lithium-ion battery pack is located in the floorboard, which ensures a low center of gravity for better stability. The Ather 450 comes with three charging options: Home charging, Public charging via Ather Grid, and portable charging. The home charger, called Ather Dot, is offered for free at the purchase of the scooter, and installation commands a nominal cost. The Ather Dot comes with authenticated power transfer, auto cut-off, surge protection and can be synced with the Ather app.


Ather has also made sure one can charge outside the confines of home using the Ather Grid fast charging points. This allows fast charging upto 80 percent at 1km of range per minute of charge. Usage is free across all the fast charging points in Bengaluru and Chennai. You can check the location and availability of an Ather Grid charging point on your scooter dashboard or on the Ather app. In addition, you can also use the scooter’s onboard charger (sold separately), using which you can connect it to a 5A socket and recharge the battery pack.

Underpinnings include a telescopic front fork, rear monoshock, petal disc on both ends with combined braking system as standard. The Ather 450 is currently available in Bengaluru and Chennai with a delivery time of about 4-6 weeks. It goes up against the Bajaj Chetak and the TVS iQube Electric.

450 Expert Review

In a market awash with sub-par Chinese imports, one doesn’t have to do much to stand out in the Indian electric two-wheeler space. But just doing the bare minimum and scraping by doesn’t really fit into the ethos of Ather Energy, one of the most innovative and ambitious EV startups in the nation. We were mighty impressed when we first rode the 450 in Bangalore, even calling it the best e-scooter available in India. But that was just a brief jaunt. To be able to comprehensively assess an EV, you’ve got to spend a few days with it and see what it’s like to live with. We haven’t had the opportunity to do so thus far, but Ather rang up with the offer, so we’ve gone ahead and done it now. Better late than never, right?

Design and Features

If Apple were to ever build an electric scooter, this is probably what it would look like. There’s no other scooter on our roads that looks quite as futuristic as the little Ather, with its minimalist approach, does. It isn’t easy to make an all-white paint scheme look special, and yet Ather has somehow succeeded. It’s certainly been helped by the sharp LED lights all around, and the green inserts inject some flair too. 

Everything from the double-layered body panels on the side of the apron to the exquisite seat hinge mount is flawlessly executed, and panel gaps everywhere are tight and consistent. If I had to nitpick, I’d say that the front fender is mounted a little too high, and the switchgear design could’ve been a little more special, but neither of these is a dealbreaker. The only real fly in the ointment is Indian legislation (story of our lives, right?), because the front number plate mount and saree guard stick out like sore thumbs in an otherwise very cohesive and well-rounded design .

Engine and Performance

In a market full of low-speed electric scooters where 25kmph is the norm and where 45kmph is considered ‘high speed,’ the Ather 450 with its 5.4kW motor and 80kmph top speed feels positively ballistic. Performance is especially peppy in Sport mode, with the instant electric torque doing its job and allowing you to seize gaps in traffic with the sort of gusto that’ll leave fellow motorists looking on in wonder (if the scooter’s design hasn’t done that already). It’s only beyond 75kmph that you really start to feel performance trailing off, and considering that the city is where this baby will spend most of its time, that really isn’t an issue at all.

The middle-of-the-road ‘Ride’ mode still offers perfectly acceptable performance within the city, with acceleration nearly as zippy as Sport mode, but top speed limited to a more range-friendly 60kmph. Eco mode results in noticeably slower pick-up, with the speedo only reading as high as 50kmph. Throttle response feels duller too, but all this is the price you pay for that extra range.

Speaking of range, the 450 blew us away with just how much it can extract from a full charge. Ather’s website may claim 55km, 65km and 75km in Sport, Ride and Eco mode respectively, but it was an impressive 96.7km before the scooter rolled to a stop in Sport mode. However, it’s worth noting that the scooter automatically locks itself in Eco mode once the charge indicator falls below 15 per cent. This mode delivered a mammoth 108.6km on a full charge, and while we didn’t have the time to carry out a range test in Ride mode, interpolation tells us that you should get a little over 100km. What’s even more commendable is the negligible drop in performance as the charge depleted. Even moments before running dry, the Ather could achieve respectable speeds, with acceleration only slightly slower than at full charge.

Sure, this isn’t as much as a petrol-powered scooter, but Ather is only selling its scooters in cities where it has already established its Ather Grid charging infrastructure, meaning a fast-charging rate of 1km/min. Even with a regular 5-amp socket, an empty-to-full juice up takes around 4 hours. All this means that you can comfortably use the 450 for commuting to work every day.

Braking and Handling

A stiff ride perhaps isn’t too much of a surprise on a scooter with such sporty motor performance. The ride quality is definitely on the firmer side, and the Ather feels especially harsh over closely spaced consecutive sharp edges like tall rumble strips. That being said, it’s not excessively uncomfortable or back-breaking; it just means you have to slow down that little bit more on poor stretches of tarmac. 

The upside of this stiffness is light and sharp handling. The 450 turns in with very little effort and inspires confidence once leaned over, holding its line with conviction. Making mid-corner corrections is also a breeze, and those long hours that Ather has spent achieving perfect weight distribution pay dividends here.

While mid-corner corrections can help you avoid obstacles to a certain extent, sooner or later you’re going to come across something that can’t be ridden around, and it’s around this time that you’ll realise what’s wrong with the 450’s braking setup. There is a phenomenal amount of braking power on offer, but its stopping distances still aren’t the best in class. 

Why? Well, overkill. There is so much stopping force available and the brakes are so immediate and sensitive that locking up is a very easy affair, even for the front wheel. This issue is exacerbated by the lack of feel from the brakes, which means that you’re usually sliding sideways or tucking the front before you realise that a lock-up has occurred. We understand that Ather has been working on making the brakes a little less sensitive over the last year, but the quick and simple (and necessary) fix is ABS. Hope you’re listening, Ather!

Safety and Features

You could probably write a small book about the technology & features on the Ather, but I’ll try and restrict myself to just the most important bits. Climb aboard and you’re greeted with the crisp, colourful 7-inch touchscreen. It lets you fiddle with ride modes, various settings of the scooter itself (follow-me-home lamps, indicator beeps, etc.), and also lets you put the scooter in reverse mode (a very handy feature, since there is quite a lot of motor drag on the rear wheel which makes it rather difficult to push the scooter around).

Another advantage of having such a large colour screen is being able to provide a comprehensive navigation system, not just the turn-by-turn sort that we’ve seen on most two-wheelers so far. Other thoughtful features include self-cancelling indicators, and a locking mechanism for the charger that locks it in place once plugged into the scooter, until the key is inserted and turned to the ‘On’ position.

One piece of technology that we do wish Ather had included is an ABS system, since the brakes can be a little dangerous when you get on them hard -- but more on that later. Underseat storage is enough for a half-face helmet but the lack of depth means a full-face unit won't fit in.
