Recently Asked User Questions

Q. What is the difference between Bajaj Chetak Urbane and Bajaj Chetak Premium?
  • The main distinguishing factor between the Urbane and the Premium variant is that the latter gets a front disc brake with metallic-finish rims in the shade Slate Grey or Satin Black. More subtle changes on the Urbane trim include either a black or medium grey seat cover, Siberian silver bezels, black plastic floor mats, and two glossy solid colours. Comparatively, the Premium trim gets tan-coloured seats, Satin silver bezels, dark grey floor mats, and four glossy metallic colours.
Q. Which scooter is better Bajaj Chetak or Ather 450X?
  • The Ather 450 is among the most premium and expensive electric two-wheelers on sale in India. The Ather 450 justifies its premium price with its list of features, performance, technology and range. The Ather 450X makes 6kW of peak power and offers a top speed of 80kmph. On the features list, the Ather 450X gets built-in Google Maps as well as digital document storage. Moreover, it also features Bluetooth connectivity enabling music and phone call controls. You also get 4G LTE SIM connectivity. On the other hand, the Chetak features a 4kW BLDC motor and offers two riding modes: Eco and Sport. Apart from its well-rounded design, the Chetak is slightly plain Jane on the feature front. It gets an LCD screen, geotagging, geofencing and turn-by-turn navigation. As of now, the Chetak is available only in Bengaluru and Pune which is also a limitation the customers have to face. So if you’re looking at a quick, fun to ride and tech-loaded scooter, the 450X is a no-brainer. But the jump in price is quite significant (Rs 25k more than Chetak) if you want to buy the scooter outright. If you factor in the base scooter with a subscription to the monthly performance packs, it doesn’t sound like a bad deal. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride before making the final decision. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership details. Read More:- Ather 450X vs Bajaj Chetak
Q. What's is the best choice bajaj chetak or tvs icube electric?
  • Selecting between the Bajaj Chetak and TVS iQube Electric would depend on certain factors such as usage, budget, features required, brand preference, etc. Bajaj has ushered in a new era of electric mobility with the Chetak electric. Its timeless appeal is only matched by its elegant style and premium fit and finish levels. The Chetak might not be as futuristic or boast of great performance as the Ather 450X, but it does offer an easy urban riding experience. The Bajaj is offering you a more feature-rich scooter, with things like a touchscreen, navigation, and fast charging, none of which are available on the Chetak. It’s also considerably quicker, more exciting to ride and even gets a rear disc brake over the Chetak’s drum. On the other hand, iQube Electric has an annoying startup tune, which sounds like a certain water purifier, The raised floorboard means your legs could foul with the handlebar while making tight U-turns, Doesn’t support fast charging, yet. The iQube should be sweating a bit, because, after years of being developed behind closed doors, it is now meeting reality and the competition. The Ather 450 and Bajaj’s Chetak put the iQube on the back foot, at least on paper, but it’s on the roads it has to prove itself. The heart of the iQube is a 3kW hub motor sourced from Bosch, which is a bit disappointing. Even the 4.4kW of peak power, translating to about 6PS of power, sounds quite middling. TVS’ claims of accomplishing the 0-40kph dash in 4.2s and hitting a top speed of 78kph don’t mean much either, unless it does so in a fun and confident manner. Moreover, we would suggest you take a test ride before making the final decision. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership..Read more:- Bajaj Chetak First Ride ReviewRead more:- 2020 TVS iQube: First Ride Review

  • Guys, I recently bought chetak premium, Compared to any other electric this is really awesome where you have a metallic body, Superb charging and gives you more kilometer than what the range says.Recently me and wife went for a long drive of more than 90 km in this and i was happy to see that i still had some 10 to 15 km to spare after i reached home.I have seen electric vehicles saying that you will get the kilometers whatever they say in certain conditions and only when an individual rides, But here i was able to get a mileage of more than 90 kms in one charge.Its an eye catcher and everyone on the road keeps on asking about it's features and the cost.Really happy with the performance and would recommend everyone to buy this.

  • I am really satisfied with these bike all I want is few upgrades in these bike for example USD Suspension, Mono Sock, wide Swing Arm, Rare tyre atleast 130, and at last 6th gear may be not for direct selling but a choice for upgrades which will make a bike looks more muscular and safe for top speed ridder since 180 has no upgrade since 2012 in looks. So There fore I hope and pray that TVS will be kind enought to note down my demands Thank You Lots of love From Kanu Kalai From Tripura

  • Very light and full control in riding. Instant pick up make it more reliable. If someone use it single hand then you never loss its feel alike JUST NEWI am using it since Oct 2015. From my point of view, a customer who buy it I suggest you that when you buy it you ride it full speed and long run with two persons in order to make it more efficient for future (please ensure traffic rule and own safety). And light service every two months on 1000kmWith regards Vijay Kumar Nain

    Vijay Kumar few weeks ago
  • 121 km /h is top speed i gained but i am sure that 135/hour can gain for suitable road.Safest bike i ever experienced.Stability & less vibration are the main attraction.Cornering is really heartfelt & also assure co driver comfort.Pls do service between regular intervals & use lub only for chain sprocket.Dont allow to wet.Keep neet & clean always.Karma returns.

    Antony P few weeks ago
  • I was thinking to buy this because this bike has dual-channel abs and this bike has a very good fuel capacity and good average also.The bike looks very stylish and what a biker wants is all there in this bike.Mainly this bike has a comfortable seat.The headlights of this bike are really good.But timely maintenance of the bike is always required.

    Hemant Kumar1 few weeks ago
  • Look my way of riding may not be a biker type. I generally ride pretty safe and till now my highest speed is 98kmph for 3 secs. But for my daily commute I found this bike pretty useful. Though after 5 years I am having an issue with my brakes. Loosing confidence on them.
