Ather Energy, a five-year-old startup in Bengaluru founded by two IIT students launched the Ather 340 and Ather 450 smart electric scooters in India. The scooters are most expensive scooters in the Indian market. While the more powerful 450 has been priced Rs 1.24 lakh on road, the 340 is priced at Rs. 1.09 lakh on road.

Both the scooters share similar features; the only difference lies in the power output which is lower in 340 than 450. The company claims that these are the most advanced scooters in the country.

Ather 340 has a range of 60 km on a single charge whereas Ather 450 covers 75 km with a top speed of 70 km/hr. Both scooters are powered by BLDC (brushless direct current) that gives 4.4kW and 5.4Kw power in 340 and 440 respectively. The Ather 340 shares 7-inch digital screen with the 450 and offers satellite navigation, remote diagnostics and a host of other features.

The scooters will match the level of high-level bikes like KTM 200 Duke and Bajaj Pulsar 220, as the peak torque offered by the scooters will be around 20.5 Nm. This translates to a serious acceleration of 0-40 kmph for 450 in 3.9 sec, which is quite interesting for the buyers. A 2.4 kWh battery pack is the source of energy and is dust and waterproof, with an IP67 rating and sits in the floorboard.
