Ather Energy has launched the updated Ather 450X Gen-3. The 450X Gen 3 is now equipped with a bigger and more powerful 3.7 kWh battery that enables users to ride in the ‘Warp’ (Ather’s high-performance mode) for about 60 kms. The battery is also 25% larger than the previous generation, giving an ARAI-certified range of 146 kilometres and a TrueRange of 105km.
Now riders will be able to experience climbing steep inclines faster, even in ‘Ride’ mode, giving them the same levels of excitement without compromising on the range. Also, the 450X Gen 3 has a new ‘Smart EcoTM Mode’ that allows riders to enjoy cruising in ‘Ride’ mode whilst offering the range of ‘Eco’ mode. The upgraded version will offer five ride modes – Warp, Sport, Ride, SmartEco, and Eco. The maximum power output in Warp mode is 6.2 kW (8.7 hp).

To enhance the riding performance, the 450X comes with wider rear tyres that have been fundamentally designed to offer better grip while leaning on turns and a shorter braking distance. This has been achieved by a newer compound and improved tread profile, leading to a 22% better grip in all weather conditions. To ensure that ride consistency and handling remain at an optimum level on the vehicle, Ather has introduced the Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS). TPMS is also crucial to maintaining range as lower tyre pressure increases the pressure on the battery. While TPMS is an accessory, it is an essential fitment to ensure consistency in handling, performance, and range everyday.
On the UI/UX front, the new Ather 450X Gen 3 now features an upgraded dashboard with a re-architected Ather stack and an upgraded 2 GB RAM. This would greatly enhance the performance of memory-intensive applications and will unlock several features for the future like voice commands, multi-language support, heavier graphics, deeper diagnostics, and more. An upgraded RAM also means better performance in higher temperatures.
450X Gen3 now has new rear view mirrors that are 2X better in terms of visibility and 5X in reliability. The mirrors have been designed with single-cast aluminium and appear as a natural extension of the scooter to provide convenience and adjustability. The 450X Gen 3 also introduces an all-new sidestep, which has been designed to integrate seamlessly with the scooter’s design. The sidestep is made of single-cast aluminium for sturdiness and clean aesthetics and is combined with a soft rubber surface providing for a firmer grip and has been finished with a premium look. The sidestep blends so well with the design of the scooter it’s almost as if – it’s there when you need it, invisible when you don’t.
The Gen-3 of Ather’s flagship variant will continue to offer a larger boot space of (22 litres), providing an ample amount of space to the customer. The scooter will carry over the 7.0-inch touchscreen system, front, and rear disc brakes with regen, 12-inch alloy wheels, a telescopic fork, and a belt drive system.
Introduced at a price of INR 155,657 (ex-showroom, Bangalore) the new 450X Gen 3 will be available in all experience centres across the country from the 20th of July 2022.
