Photon review.

1 month ago by Veer969 views

I bought this vehicle and found that the open charging port, where we connect the charger is showing 80 volts voltage always and it is very dangerous safety point.
Build quality is also very poor, poor plastic used. Very poor quality seat and hinge is also very cheap.
Front wheel brakes got struck from first day due to soft spring, again a poor manufactured part.
Only one thing which is ok, is the looks of the vehicle.
Do not buy this vehicle, wait for some good brands, to enter in this arena.

    I have bought photon. This was one of the worst electric scooter I have used .The turning radius of scooter is too much and if you are on highway, you need to go to other side while turning. It's front head light is too big and light is too low. You cannot see potholes or any object from the distance. It is a risky ride and quality is low.

    Having owned a new type of automobile gives a thrill but all got drained when i was riding amidst a busy traffic.
    It is so silent; it does have initial grunt or a kind of adrenaline induced jerk that all make proud. The handling is quite nimble but the ride quality is bumpy due to its skinny tyres.
    Certainly after making a trip to market or so, it feels happy that i didn't spent lavishly in a petrol bunk. In contrast, as there is no indicator for warning us how much distance that it can commute, it gives a little fear that whether would it make it pull manually to home back.
    Two things need to be addressed soon. The in-between acceleration must be increased, otherwise, it will definitely let you on the middle of the road.
    Next one is the need of a meter to intimate us how much kilometers it has remaining to bring us back to home. As of now no greater cribs. Kudos to hero!

    I bought this scooter in November 20 in Jabalpur (MP). My daily commute is around 30-35 kms. With the speed and pickup, there is no compromise when compared to other petrol heads.
    The top speed is 55 km/h, and battery lasts for around 85 kms.
    This vehicle is very light to ride, weighing just 87 kg.
    Suspension and balancing of the vehicle is good. Just as other scooters.
    Charging of the vehicle takes 4 hours for a full charge and around 1.5 units (around Rs.12)
    Looks of the vehicle is just awesome, this is an eye turner for everyone. Everyday 3 to 5 strangers asks about the performance, pricing and praise the vehicle.
    Servicing and maintenance is more or less nil.
    3 years warranty on battery and motor.

    Service and maintenance- even a small fix for breaks can only be fixed by hero electric showroom. Because parts are not available in open market, other mechanics are scared to touch these vehicles. And showrooms charge too much of price for even a small fix. Mechanics at Vijayawada service center are very rude as we are completely depended on them for fixing it.

    I have bought hero electric photo IP model in September 2019. I have just completed nearly 4000 km's the battery has gone down and the shop which sold me has taken the battery for replacement the battery is trontek lithium make. The show room man is telling it will take 45 days to replace. Hero eclectic should take this issue seriously and replace the battery with some good make. There is no good review on trontek lithium batteries.

    Brought last week. Dealer is very cordial bike appearance super. Riding super. Mileage as assured. Super sackings value for the money in highways i felt as if going in pushpak. I found following disadvantages. 1. Front luggage box edges very sharp and their finishing finishing worst. Hands get injured while underwriting and removing. 2.The side step for pillion rider is not researched and scientific. 3.Braking should be more effective. 4.The seat decider is unscientific ridge discomfort for pillion rider. 5.The red switch for low and high speed has reverse connected in all vehicles.
