Given the smart features with cloud connectivity and a top speed of 80 km/hr, the Ather 450 definitely holds an edge over its competitors Okinawa Praise and Bajaj Chetak. However, its higher variants 450 X-plus and 450 X-pro are quite expensive and not everyone will be able to afford them. Talking about the range, Ather 450’s 75 km/charge is a bit underwhelming compared to the others.
Whether you should go for any of the variants of Ather 450 scooter depends on what you are looking for from your scooter. If you sought a good range and competitive price, then this is not the option for you. However, if speed and performance are the factors that thrill you, then this has to be your default choice.
One can order/purchase the bike online and the delivery will be done at your doorstep. Ather 450 is currently available in Bangalore, Pune, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad and Chennai.
