Struck on the breaker because the tires are t

2 months ago by Nitin Bhati2,868 views

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.

    Buying experience:- within 20 days, vehicle got registered and delivered
    Riding experience:- turning radius is too much, which creates problem during turning. This bike is not suited for roads, which is having potholes. Shock absorber performance is not that good, due to which, back pain will affect rider. Even if company promises top speed of 45km/h, but this is without a rider. With a rider weighing 70kg, speed goes down to 40km or below.
    Looks and performance:- look is not that good, because, battery can be seen from rear tyre side. Seat height of vehicle is less than that of activa. Since maximum speed scooter can deliver is only 45km/h, so one can't overtake which moves at 40km speed.
    Servicing:- actually no major service is required for the vehicle, even though, to pay some amount to the dealer, paid service intervals added in periodic services.
    Pros and cons:-
    Pros:- powerful electric scooter at lower price. This electric scooter good for ladies. Suitable for travel on flat good roads
    Cons:- not suitable for tall men. Even not suitable for men, who require some speed and want to overtake a vehicle. Will feel back pain during long rides. Turning radius is more. Some times at full accelerator throttle, scooter moves half of its half maximum speed. We need to decrease the throttle and the increase it, then only it achieves maximum speed.

    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.

    Electric bikes and scooters are the future of mobility. Skyrocketing fuel prices are forcing people to consider more practical alternatives such as electric bikes and cars. With a great range of electric bikes and electric scooters in India by popular automakers like hero electric, Bajaj auto, tvs motors and amo electric bikes and more homegrown brands indicates it's a good time to switch to electric for a greener environment.

    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.

    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.
