Ather Energy recently refreshed its product portfolio, discontinuing the 450S and launching a new low-cost version, the 450X, which is now the most affordable electric scooter in the range. The high-end version of the electric scooter is now simply called the “450X with Pro Pack.” So, what does the Pro Pack offer?

The Ather Energy Pro Pack offers five riding modes. There are Warp, Sport, Ride, Eco and SmartEco. Thanks to the riding modes, the electric scooter can exhibit different riding ranges depending on the mode. In Eco mode, the TrueRange is 105 kilometers, in Ride mode it is 85 kilometers, in Sport mode, the range drops to 75 kilometers, and in Warp mode, the electric scooter’s TrueRange is 65 kilometers.
