The Ola S1 electric scooter has been around for more than a year, and the brand has yet to reveal official accessories for it. However, we’ve come across some aftermarket parts that you could buy on e-commerce websites like Amazon. Here are our top five picks.
The accessories mentioned below are listed purely on the basis of online research and haven’t been tried or tested by our team. So, if you choose to buy one, we recommend doing your due research beforehand.
In its stock form, the Ola S1 e-scooter only gets a split grab rail at the rear. And the addition of a backrest would add to the comfort and convenience of the pillion. That said, multiple options are available with different structures and soft padding on the tube. The price range for these varies from Rs 500 to Rs 700.
While the current seat cover on the Ola scooter seems to do the job, it could do better with more grip. This can be fixed with an aftermarket cover which would also help protect the stock unit. The pieces that are available on Amazon range from Rs 360 to Rs 800.
Another essential accessory for a scooter is the main/centre stand and the S1 e-scooter needs one too. So, you can opt for the customised stand or pick from the options available online. Similar to the above accessories, there are multiple options for a centre stand on Amazon with the price ranging from Rs 750 to Rs 1,200.
With the bodywork exposed, you are more than likely to need a full replacement in case of a crash on the Ola scooter. Moreover, it’s made out of fibre so a complete break wouldn’t be a surprise either. To avoid this, you can equip your scooter with crash guards on both sides as well as the front. The average price bracket for guards sold online is Rs 2,200-4,000.
Most Ola owners will know that the pillion footpegs are placed a little higher than normal. And it also compromises the pillion’s comfort by a bit. However, a separate footrest can be bought and fixed at your convenience to offer a decent posture. Not to mention, these are foldable units and can be retracted upwards when not in use. The average cost of an aftermarket footrest on Amazon ranges from Rs 700 to Rs 1000.
