For a while in the recent past, bikes ruled the roads. Now it is scooters. The taste of vehicle drivers is changing with the time. Mainly, the inconvenience of changing gears in the midst of traffic is luring many towards gearless scooters. As such many automobile companies are focussing on releasing new scooter models regularly. Consequently, new products are going to be introduced by popular companies, in the next one or one and a half years. Let us learn about them:


Ather S340
representational imageThis electric scooter is the innovation of, Madras IITians, Tarun Mehta and Swapnil Jain. They established a start up in 2013. They innovated with Ather S340 scooter model, after three years of research. The future is that of Electric scooters. In view of pollution levels rising up abnormally, even India is about to come up with plans to permit only electric vehicles.

Union minister Gadkari has already announced that only electric vehicles will be permitted from 2030. Automobile companies are now focussing releasing electrical versions. In this context, take a look at the electrical vehicles. Ather S340 is made entirely out of indigenous spare parts, except for the lithium battery that is imported from abroad.

This is not any normal scooter. It is a powerful one. They have used a very powerful engine in this. A major portion of the body of the scooter is made with aluminium. It has mono shock suspension and regenerative braking system. However, it does not have fast charging facility, that all electrical scooters have and this might be a disadvantage. However, in Ather S340 the battery is charged 80 per cent in just one hour. In case of low power, drivers can recharge and use the scooter within an hour. This might come into the market in 2018.
