Using a home charger, this battery pack can be fully juiced in 6 hours and 36 minutes. It also supports fast charging via Ather Grid. A DC fast charger can juice the scooter at a speed of 1.5km/min.
The electric motor on the Ather 450S can generate a maximum power output of 5.4kW and 22Nm of torque. It can go from 0-40kmph in 3.9 seconds with its top speed capped at 90kmph.
