successful 450 platform and now comes with a host of new features that enhance
its performance and ride consistency.
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) through

the 450X Gen 3’s bigger and more powerful battery, riders get more consistent
performance, which is achieved by better thermal management. Essentially, while
riding in high-speed modes, the 450X Gen 3 maintains its power throughout the
ride, irrespective of terrain, temperature, or load. 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.
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).
Ather 450X Gen3 continues to be the benchmark of ride quality and handling the
first of its kind all-aluminium frame in the segment, perfectly balanced weight
distribution, and incredibly low centre of gravity. 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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
