Ather’s 450S, now at a starting price of Rs 1.17 Lakh. It boasts a 2.9 Kwh battery capacity and weighs 108 kg. Safety features include Disc brakes both front and rear, along with a Combine Braking System. Available in four sleek colors: Cosmic Black, Still White, Space Grey, and Salt Green.

Recently, Ather’s e-scooter lineup underwent price adjustments, with the 450S experiencing a notable increase. Despite this, it remains a popular choice among electric scooter enthusiasts. We had the opportunity to test ride it, uncovering its strengths and weaknesses.


The Ather 450X is priced at an estimated Rs. 1,41,307 for its 2.9 kWh variant. Other variants include the 3.7 kWh model, the 2.9 kWh model with Pro Pack, and the 3.7 kWh model with Pro Pack, priced at Rs. 1,55,442, Rs. 1,58,260, and Rs. 1,75,466 respectively. These prices are the average ex-showroom rates.

The Ather 450X, an electric scooter, offers 4 variants and comes in 6 colors. Its motor produces 3300 W power, and it features front and rear disc brakes with a combined braking system for both wheels.

The 450X holds the middle ground in Ather’s scooter lineup, positioned between the budget-friendly 450S and the top-tier 450 Apex models.

The Ather 450X sports a sleek design, shared with other 450-series scooters, boasting a sporty and aggressive style perfect for younger riders. Its modern appeal is enhanced by the LED headlight and turn indicators on the handlebar cowl, while the single-piece seat with rear grab-rail adds to its functionality and aesthetics

Ather provides two battery choices for the 450X: 2.9kWh and 3.7kWh. The smaller pack offers a 90km range, while the larger one extends to 110km. Despite the difference in battery size, both options deliver the same motor output and top speed: 6.4kW and 90kmph, respectively. Charging time for the 3.7kWh battery is five hours and 45 minutes, while the 2.9kWh unit takes eight hours and 36 minutes for a full charge.

The Ather 450X features LED lighting, 16GB storage, 2GB RAM, a seven-inch TFT touchscreen, and CBS. Opting for the Pro Pack (Rs. 23,078 for larger battery, Rs. 16,999 for smaller) unlocks five ride modes, Google Maps navigation, tow/theft notifications, ride stats, and more.

The Ather 450X features telescopic front forks and a monoshock, paired with 200mm front and 190mm rear disc brakes. Riding on 12-inch wheels with 90/90 front and 100/80 rear tires, providing stability and control on the road.

The Ather 450X comes in six stylish color choices: Space Grey, Still White, Salt Green, True Red, Cosmic Black, and Lunar Grey.

Visuals Of Ather 450S:

“The Ather 450S maintains its iconic design, staying true to its roots even as it’s positioned alongside higher-end models by the company. With its sleek and angular fascia, the scooter retains its distinctive look. The generously sized V-shaped headlamp adds a touch of premium feel to the overall appearance.”

The handlebar cover follows the sleek design theme with built-in turn indicators, seamlessly blending sharp lines into the overall look. When viewed from the side, the Ather S appears compact and stylish. The addition of subtle yet lively color accents on the seat frame and branding further elevate its cool factor. Moving to the rear, you’ll notice sharp lines and a sizable grab rail that adds a touch of robustness.

The Package:

The Ola 450S now features a new Deep view display for its instrument cluster, though it’s not as advanced as the full TFT color screen found in the 450X model. With a 7-inch screen size, it offers decent functionality, but with lower specs including an 800MHz processor, 8GB storage capacity, and 1GB RAM. Brightness adjustments have some limits as well. However, it’s still rated IP65, ensuring durability even in rainy weather.

The Ola 450S introduces a reverse switch for easy maneuvering. Its Pro variant offers features like hill hold and coasting regen, akin to the 450X, but lacks Warp mode. Modes include Smart Eco (90km range), Eco (85km), Ride (75km), and Sport (70km). Switchgear is comfortable and user-friendly.


Ather scooters, including the 450S, are renowned for their agile handling and fun riding experience, ideal for city streets and even go-kart tracks. During tests in Bengaluru, the 450S showcased predictable handling, perfect for navigating tight traffic. The sporty suspension setup, particularly the rebound, adds to the thrill, with improved comfort when carrying a passenger.

The Ather 450S shows slight acceleration drop in Eco and Ride modes, but Sport mode offers thrilling rides for short commutes. The instrument cluster features a modern layout with intelligently chosen font colors, though detailed information may overwhelm some users. Turn-by-turn navigation couldn’t be tested due to access issues with the smartphone app.

The Ather 450S offers a great riding experience with excellent brakes and precise throttle calibration. While the Combined Braking System (CBS) performs well, adding ABS would enhance safety. Taller riders may find discomfort due to the scooter’s design, especially with the leaning side stand and limited legroom, impacting maneuverability.

Should You Buy It:

The Ather 450S mirrors styling and performance of the 450X with decent features and a functional instrument cluster. Its sporty ride and quality parts impress. With good luggage space, it’s practical too. Priced at Rs. 1.29 lakh, it’s a solid choice, though for a bit more, the 450X offers enhanced features.
