Ather 450X Gen 3 with longer range, new features launched
Ather just introduced a new 450x smart electric scooter in an online event. It comes with a range of 105 km with new 21700 battery compared to 85km in the older model, thanks to 3.7kWh battery. It comes with performance 100/80-12″ tyres from MRF as a standard that promises 22% better grip in turns and better braking.
The new model has 2GB of RAM compared to 1GB. This will be helpful for upcoming features such as offline maps, richer graphics, multi-language support, voice commands, running more apps in parallel, voice commands and deeper diagnostics, says the company.
It has redesigned mirrors that promise 2x visibility and 5x reliability. These are also compatible with older 450 and 450X models.
Finally, the new 450X also gets a side step for the pillion. However, this is not compatible with the older models, said the company. Announced at the 450x launch in 2020, Ather has also officially launched the Tyre Pressure monitoring sensor price at Rs. 4999, which is compatible with both older and new models.
Other features of the new 450x Gen 3 are the same as the older 450X model.
