Why position the product on support in this poll, we would like to buy It as a premium product as it is a premium offerings, and may would be there. It's a nice product. Cost of a I phone is exorbitant, but it's their offering and the premium positioning, we like to Pay for. So is this Ather 450x. Yes I would prefer outright buying it.

I admire the company and the people behind it. Support them 100%. Have been using the 450 for more than 8 months and the ownership experience has been truly amazing. 450x seems to be prized higher but the features offered justify the same.

Ather should launch a bike with some decent feature decent speed i dont want 0 to 40 in 3 sec and a decent rage and it should be under a price that middle class can buy it
In India middle class use mostly Scotty or bike for day to day traveling so Ather should launch a Scotty for middle class

When you sell a product you should sell it completely and not be greedy by trying to milk the customers for a long time .. my problem with the up front pricing is that even though it is high we are not getting all the features. wE should be getting the complete connected scooter with at least 3 free services and 3 yrs warranty. Where as even if u pay upfront you aren't getting the connected feature and no service promise. I don't want your battery replacement. But I want all the features of the scooter

Yes Indian mentality is changing and we are considering EVs over ICE now a days but also India is price sensetive market. Regarding 450x it's ok to pay higher than ICE bike upfront, but monthly subscription is a loote. Everyone know that you don't need that much money for cloud connectivity or for OTA updaes.For that matter you can use customer's sim, as everyone now days have 4g connected smartphone in his pocket.

Yes! I l will to buy. I will be happier if they will revise the prices after getting public reviews. But I will do buy this Scooter as No other Company has taken the Technology at the level these guys had. I feel in Scooter market this Scooter is like iPhone of Phone Market. Everyone will like it but fewer will buy it. But users who have experienced this will never regret their decision for long time. I don't know much about Quality and reliability of other latest scooters but this is the BEST which I have seen till now. Being Electric is First Superb thing then it's Design, Connectivity, Specs and Quality is superb. Much difference than the scooter which I have seen. Everyone should ride it once and then you take your decision according to preference.

This is very expensive scooter considering a common man who are willing to switch to electric... appropriate cost considering current options in the market should be max 1lac to 1.2lac .... As a business you cant expect to recover all of your innovation cost kn short go with limited customer rather mass production and less cost will help it recover faster... please revisit your costing ....
I would even prefer buying at 1lac with 300 monthly cost for recharge and 5 years battery warranty.

Ather 450X do have a modern design for sure, but the price at which it was launched, if they could have increased the battery capacity to 4KW
I would have preferred to go with 450X if it had a range of 120 on eco mode.

I agree that ather is Tesla of India and needs to be supported at any cost. There is cost savings of Rs2 for every km . The extra cost is recovered in 15to 20000km.

I was placed pre order on 7th Jan 2020. Because i was taught it'll be available on indian roads lesser than predecessor. Which is very disappointing factor for the 75/85 kms range.if you try to extend range by 130 kms -150 kms/single charge then you can decide to increase price upto 130 kms on road price no objection

My concern is this that if they already backbone by the Giants like hero moto corp, sachin bansal, then this should not be happen with ather.

If you are still associated with this company anf making Ather in huge quantity then product should be cheaper.

Don't take me wrong, but current scenario is like this

You are taking advance payment as booking
Making infrastructure on our money
Selling scooter in subscription
Like 2000 & 1400 as an emi
This is the worst thing you are doing with people.

Plz take back subscription plans and offer us reasonable price.

Learn from HONOURABLE MR. RATAN TATA
How he thinks about each and every aspect of company and their customers, never makes compromise with anything. It will take some time and who knows in future India will remember you like them and you will also become the trust name future "TATA"

Yes! We need to support Ather. It maybe a premium scooter but they are a startup. Once they grow they will definitely make more economic scooters of the best quality. No other scooter in India or the world even comes close to the quality.
EV is the future and ather is far ahead of the other companies in quality, design and customer service.

Ather did a mess with pricing inspite introducing decent upgrade scooter. same design, functions, just minor enhancement and pricing is where they lost most people, this may remain startup for more time coz they dont want to grow into a company. by into on subscription which normal average middle class wont be able to pay for your gimmiky product. this is for extra faltu paisa wala log.dont get me wrong, but all other scooters have more or less same and catching up, there is nothing extra ordinary. Those who say support, why not donate to some needed people, these guys have investors.

Ather want to making money
The plan should not be given
As it will be like phone and plan like a sim
Ather is becoming greedy

Please forward this to ather energy
