Ather Energy has unveiled the much-awaited collector’s edition of the Ather 450X, called Series 1. This limited-edition scooter is available only to those Ather Energy customers who pre-ordered the scooter before the national launch of the Ather 450X on January 28th, 2020. Series 1 has been conceptualized and designed to celebrate the amplified performance of the Ather 450X – its best-in class power, torque, acceleration and it’s light hybrid aluminium frame chassis, by using premium colour & finish, and one of the first for Indian roads, a vehicle with translucent panels.
The truly special features of Ather 450X Series 1 are the translucent panels in the rear, that offer a peek inside the scooter. This is one of the first for an Indian OEM to offer tinted translucent panels that allow one to see the ‘insides’ of the scooter. Ather Energy’s distinct cast aluminum chassis is visible under the seat and the trellis frame which has been a unique aspect of the Ather scooters. The Series 1 edition of the scooter celebrates the engineering, tech prowess, and the performance of the Ather 450 product line.
The Ather 450X Series 1 Edition has a starkly different from the existing range of colours of grey, white and mint green, the Series 1 comes with a high-gloss metallic black body colour combined with accents of red. These signature colours also feature on the 7-inch touchscreen dashboard of the Series 1 scooters, with a special intro screen and subtle hints of red in the UI designed for the scooters.
The Ather 450X Series 1 edition will be powered by a 6 kW PMSM electric motor which gets its energy from a 2.9 kWh lithium-ion battery, like the standard Ather 450X. It will also have the same set of riding modes – Eco, Ride, Sport, and a high-performance ‘Warp’ mode. According to internal tests, the 0-40 km/h acceleration time of just 3.3 seconds, makes the Ather 450X one of the quickest electric scooters in the 125cc performance categories in India.
Consumers who pre-ordered the Ather 450X before 28th of January 2020 are eligible to opt for Series 1. Deliveries of Series 1 will begin by November 2020 in all 11 cities – Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, Kochi, Coimbatore, Kozhikode, Mumbai, Delhi NCR, Pune, Ahmedabad, Kozhikode, and Kolkata. The initial batches of Series 1 scooters will ship out with black panels and will be upgraded to the translucent panels in May 2021.
