    The front side looks

    The front side looks dashing and aggressively designed giving too much knee room to the rider which allows maneuverability very easy and height also adds a point to this feature.The only demerit i found was the pillion footrest which is not adjustable.Best low-price electric scooter designed for every middle-class people.

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying Photon

Q. Do we require DL for Hero Electric Photon?
  • You need no license or registration in India for scooters that have their top speed capped at 25km per hour or has a motor of 250W or lower. However, the Hero Electric Photon is powered by a 1000-1400 W Motor and the top speed is around 45 kmph, thus requiring license and registration.
Q. Give details about the safety and features of Hero Electric Photon.
  • Hero Electric Photon has a bright multi-reflector 12V-35/35W headlight that illuminates the road well and provides a proper vision at nights. The twin rear-view mirrors alerts the rider of traffic behaviour behind him to prevent any accident. The scooter has a durable disc brake mounted at the front wheel that stops the vehicle instantly and works fine in all conditions.
Q. Is this sctoor available in Baramati?
  • For the availability, we would suggest you to please connect with the nearest authorized dealer in your city as it depends on their stock book. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership details.
More Questions
Q. Is this scooter worth to buy?
  • Hero Electric calls the Photon a “high-speed e-bike”, but if it’s crackling fast performance you are expecting, you’d be very disappointed. In India, the average e-bike’s performance leaves a lot to be desired; they underperform in almost all parameters as compared to internal combustion engines. My first tryst with an e-bike was almost a decade back and its top speed was about 30kmph or thereabouts. The Photon, on the other hand, claims a top speed of 45kmph - blisteringly fast compared to other e-bikes. Coming down the crest of a small hill, much lower than the usual flyover, I could hit 55kmph. Going up the hill, however, is a different matter altogether. Performance is adequate if you want to use the Photon for short trips around the neighborhood. Braking is sharp, if not progressive, and the single-disc setup can shed the top speed of the Photon in a jiffy. With a 50km range on a full charge, at least I wouldn't try to take the chance of venturing out to the other side of town to visit friends. And if one gets caught in bumper-to-bumper traffic, which most of us living in metros have become so used to, that 50km range may even reduce to 35 or 40km. And of course, going up a flyover at 35kmph isn’t something you’d want to be doing, with an assortment of auto-rickshaws and other two-wheelers honking up your, er, taillight. We would suggest you take a test ride for a better understanding of performance and riding comfort. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership.Read more:- Hero Photon: Review
Q. Can advance six months EMI could be paid?
  • If you are planning to buy a new scooter on finance, then generally, 10 to 30 percent down payment is required on the on-road price of a scooter. However, exact confirmation regarding EMI, down payment, interest, loan period, and its procedure will be discussed by the bank or dealership only, as it depends upon individual eligibility. We would suggest you get in touch with the nearest dealership to get the exact information. Click on the below-given link and select your desired city to get your nearest dealership.
Q. What difference between photon hx and photon lp
  • Hero Electric Photon is available in a single variant: Photon HX. The electric scooter is powered by a 72V / 26Ah battery that offers a claimed range of 108 km in a single charge. The top speed of Photon HX is capped at 45 kmph. Hero Electric Photon is priced at Rs. 71,440 (ex-showroom). For more details, you may get in touch with the nearest authorized dealer in your city. Follow the link and select your city accordingly for dealership details.
