      Worst company worst service

      4 weeks ago


      Harsh Murarka

      I purchased this photon 2 years back. In 1st year it worked properly the battery was not working then I approached to company they said it would take a maximum of 60 days to get a new battery because it is under warranty. But today 10 months completed, the battery has not come Dealer said that there is no progress in the company and told to file a case with the company but every consumer does not have much time for these petitions So very worst service please don't purchase these scooter. You can also try to contact the consumer care helpline for inquiries or complaints you will come with no response.

      Worst buy ever

      1 year ago


      Sudhanshu

      Reliability issues with the bike, construction quality is very poor, and they used substandard materials to design the bike. As electric scooters are new in the market so maintenance issue is also there, and spare parts are also not available on time, my suggestion to each and every viewer please don't buy this scooter it's a completely waste of money.

      Avoid hero electric vehicles like the plague!

      1 year ago


      Jugal

      Avoid hero electric and its dealers like the plague!
      The product breaks down within months and then no one responds. By no one I mean literally they will not pick up your calls. Terrible post-sales service. Let's call it non-existent. Only buy if you can fix electric vehicles on your own. Else let it be.

      Bad batteries ; no resolution

      1 year ago


      Subhash Kumar

      The services of hero electric bikes is terrible.
      Even company officials are least bothered to resolve the problem.
      After a lot of follow-ups, just lip service.
      Horrible experience.
      Batteries are replaced within 10 days of purchase.
      Charging issues.
      After that within a month, batteries swelled.
      Replaced again with a faulty battery in 45days follow-up.
      Again batteries give charging problems and drainage problems.
      Chasing them for the last 45 days now. No resolution.

      Struck on the breaker because the tires are too small

      2 years ago


      Nitin Bhati

      Scooty tires are very small which gives an absolutely bad feel. Driving the scooty on the road gets stuck on the breaker. Bounces a lot when it comes to the pit, everything else is fine on a single charge, it runs 80 to 85 km in the local while the company has promised 108 km per hour which proves to be wrong.
