2024 Ather 450 Apex: Ather’s Fastest Scooter Launched at Rs 1.89 Lakh

Ather 450 Apex Specifications & Features

After an eagerly awaited anticipation marked by multiple teasers. Ather has officially launched the 2024 Ather 450 Apex at Rs 1.89 lakh (ex-showroom). Positioned as the pinnacle of their current platform, the 450 Apex is a special edition scooter. Representing the most performance-oriented iteration of the long-standing 450 models. Although the hardware package aligns closely with the 450X, the Apex incorporates some software tweaks and minor hardware changes to enhance its speed and agility. In terms of design, the overall appearance remains consistent. The 450 Apex stands out with a distinctive Indium blue colour for its body panels. Complemented by transparent ones at the rear that proudly showcase the vibrant orange chassis.

What’s New?

The Apex boasts distinctive aesthetic elements that set it apart from the 450X. Notably, the transparent side panels provide a clear view of the meticulously crafted hybrid aluminium frame the company takes immense pride in. This feature is sure to make the Apex visually striking on the road. Furthermore, the body panels are coated in a unique Indium blue colour with a satin finish. While the wheels sport an eye-catching shade of orange. It’s worth noting that the Apex will be available in a single colour option. The enhanced top speed of 100 kmph represents a significant upgrade over the 450X, which was limited to 90 kmph.

Ather 450 Apex Battery, Motor, Range & Performance

While the Apex retains the 3.7kWh battery capacity. The motor’s peak power has been boosted from the 450X’s 6.4kW to 7.0kW. This enhancement enables the Apex to achieve a top speed of 100kmph in Warp+ mode. A replacement for the standard Warp mode found in the 450X. The increased power results from software and algorithm adjustments to the Ather drive controller (ADC). Serving as the crucial link between the throttle and drivetrain. The modifications in the ADC have not only contributed to the heightened top speed but also delivered additional performance gains. Including a 30% improvement in 40-80kmph acceleration, a 0-40kmph acceleration time of 2.9 seconds, and consistent acceleration up to 80kmph.

In Warp+ mode, Ather maintains a range of 75km, consistent with the standard Warp mode. The Smart Eco mode allows for a maximum range of 110km. Notably, the charging time remains unchanged at 5 hours and 45 minutes through home charging. While at the Ather Grid, it achieves close to a 1.5km/min charging rate. The Apex introduces a noteworthy feature known as Magic Twist, an advanced version of the 450X’s regenerative braking. Ather has addressed common issues associated with regen braking, resulting in a more substantial, consistent, and gradual performance. The brand asserts that Magic Twist is so efficient that it can handle nearly 75% of braking requirements in city driving scenarios.

Ather 450 Apex Features

The Ather 450 Apex is equipped with all the features offered by the 450X Gen 3 with Pro Pack. This includes a 7″ touch-operable TFT screen that seamlessly displays a wealth of information. Once connected to a smartphone via Bluetooth, users gain access to navigation through Google Maps, along with call and music control. The Ather Connect mobile app unlocks additional features such as document storage, tow and theft notifications, find my scooter function, ride stats, inter-city trip planner, and more. The scooter also comes with park assist, auto hill hold, auto-cancelling turn indicators, and coasting regen. For storage convenience, there’s a 22-litre under-seat storage space that easily accommodates items like a backpack. While fitting a full-face helmet may be a stretch, a half-face lid should fit comfortably.


The Ather 450 Apex costs Rs 1.89 lakh, which is Rs 21,000 more than the top-end 450X with the big battery and Pro pack. If you’re excited about getting the Ather 450 Apex, you can book it by paying Rs 2,500. The deliveries are expected to start in March 2024. This scooter is a bit expensive, but the co-founder, Tarun Mehta, says it’s more of a passion project than something focused on making a lot of money.
