Per the teaser, the existing Ather 450X Gen 3 has been defeated in a drag race by the pseudo-450 Apex. Notably, 450 is the fastest among the electric scooters available in India. There should be more acceleration with the 450 Apex. The current 450X can accelerate from 0 to 40 km/h in 3.3 seconds, although it can only go up to 90 km/h.
According to the teaser, the rider will not have to apply brakes repeatedly. This indicates that there may be more than one brake regeneration level.

Since the electric scooter was hidden in the teaser, the cosmetic modifications have yet to be made public. However, as Ather Energy CEO Tarun Mehta previously said, the transparent color option is anticipated to return. In a social media post, he also called it the “fastest” scooter from the brand.
