Ather 450S comes as a toned-down and affordable version of the flagship Ather 450X electric scooter.

Priced at 1.30 lakh (ex-showroom), the Ather 450S comes as a major product rivalling the Ola S1 Air, which is the affordable derivative of the Ola S1 Pro. Besides that, the Ather 450S is also expected to dent the sales numbers of the Ather 450X, if not significantly then marginally. Interestingly, Ather 450X is now available in two different battery options. While the 3.7 kWh battery pack-powered variant has been in business for quite some time, Ather recently introduced the smaller 2.9 kWh battery pack-powered variant of the 450X.

Here is a price and spec-sheet-based comparison between the Ather 450X and the Ather 450S.
