The Ather 450X which was launched last month has received a rousing response from customers and the internet community. So good in fact that Ather is launching a Collector’s Edition to celebrate the success.
Ather 450X Collector’s Edition will have the exact same features and performance of the normal 450X but the difference would be the inside-out design. While there are no photos, we can concur that it would be fitted with translucent body panels revealing the e-scooter’s internal components.
The Collector’s Edition gets features such as regenerative braking, 4G and Bluetooth connectivity, 7.0-inch touchscreen instrument cluster that are available on the 450X. While there is no change in the price, performance or features for the 450X Collector’s Edition, there is a catch – it will only be available to the customers who have already pre-booked the scooter before 28th January 2020.
The Ather 450X is powered by a 2.9 kWh battery and 6 kW motor with an output of 26 Nm. The 450X can sprint from 0 to 40 km/h in 3.29 seconds and 0 to 60 km/h in 6.50 seconds.
The Ather 450X is priced at Rs 1,59,000 in Bengaluru (Incl. GST and FAME II incentive) and the Ather 450 Plus is priced at Rs 1,49,000 in Bengaluru (Incl. GST and FAME II incentive). The second ownership model available for the 450 is battery subscription. You can pay Rs 99,000 for the vehicle and a monthly subscription starting of either Rs 1,699 (Plus) or Rs 1,999 (Pro). The price remains the same for the limited edition.
