    I’ve driven hero optima 

    I’ve driven hero optima for about 2.5 years and here is my detailed review comfort: this ev is very uncomfortable for people of any age and you cant drive it for long distance even if it has capacity to go 120 kms straight in 5 hrs charging so if are looking for something comfortable never buy this price: i got this in dual battery for 60000 so this was a acceptable option at the time but today it cost about 1.5 lacs so a big nooservice: most frustrating part of this is service it just a headache in a tenure of 2.5 years it lived in service center for more than 3 months straight just because parts are never available even if you are ready to pay a handsome amount of money which do not justify the cheap quality material usedmy tires would go flat anytime my body has started breaking with cracks between plastic and this all after i take most care of my vehicles so overall go for ola or may be some cc bike but just don’t look at this.

    Embodies the Spirit of Sustainable City Travel. 

    The Okinawa Ridge invites you to explore an undiscovered home. This electric motor scooter may give a veritably ultrapractical and effective boost for beginners to the megacity. Its satiny and truly ultrapractical project draws concentration. Because to the thorough webbing processes, you may travel with confidence. It has a remarkable range and is aimed for long peregrinations through megacities. The main argument I like this model is its unanticipated capacity to give, which makes it an excellent volition for individualities appearing for an electric scooter that matches their brazen-facedattitude.The electric motor on the two- wheeler is in fantastic shape and has an emotional range. It also seems unanticipated.

    Decent electric bike for the price 

    I have been riding hero electric optima cx with dual battery in hyderabad since july, 2022 and here is my feedback: good: - two batteries, So you always have a backup - both batteries removable, So you can remove each battery separately and charge at home or anywhere.- two chargers provided that work for both batteries, So you can keep one at home and one in bike for emergencies.- low pricebad: - very low ground clearance, Bottom hits most of the speed breakers.- very slow on slopes.- slow on plain roads too with an adult pillion rider.- top speed of 45 kmph, Feels less on empty roads sometimes.- pathetic customer service and delivery experience.- not high quality materials used, Does not feel robust overall.

    easy and accessible electric bike 

    The ola s1 air is an easy and accessible electric two wheeler bike which is marked at an affordable range but the features in exchange are totally worth it. There are many colour options available. The looks are very decent and better than a normal scooter. One can totally go for it and replace their current models with this. The ground clearance is good.

    Good experience with an ev scooter  

    I bought ola S1 air 3 months back for my brother and he is happy with the performance. it comes with a decent design and good material is used in body. the riding range is 140-150 km per charge. the battery also gets fully charged within just 4-5 hr. I liked the digital display on the dashboard and the seating posture is comfortable.

    Lots of issue 

    The price of Ola S1 Air is good and is the feature loaded scooter but the screen is slow to respond and the motor takes time to respond. With the decent top speed around 90 kmph and is a good scooter to ride but when ride this scooter for 15-20 minutes it gives heating issue. The boot space is huge and the performance is good but there are lot of issue in this scooter.

    new strength new style 

    The Ola S1 Air is a more affordable option compared to its sibling, the S1 Pro. real-world range of around 70-80 kilometers on a single charge. It claimed top speed of 90 kmph which is very decent in this segment . Available in a variety of colors which best suits my style . No ABS yet, but comes with drum brakes on both wheels it is the only feature loved by my father . Provides enough torque for navigating city traffic.

    The Eco-Friendly Commuter 

    It has been a few months since I switched to the Ola S1 Air for my daily commutes, opting for a greener mode of transport. This electric scooter is quite a charmer with its sleek design and digital flair, featuring a 2.5 kWh battery that promises a range of up to 101 km on a single charge. The ride is smooth, quiet and surprisingly quick for city rides.The overall build quality feels a bit underwhelming and the storage space could be better utilized. Moreover, the charging time of approximately 4.5 hours for a full battery may not suit everyone's schedule.
