Hero is surely late to the party, but the Vida V1 has some cool tricks to impress

Being the first-born electric child of the world’s largest manufacturer has its perks. You can show up to the party late and yet have new tricks to showcase. The Vida V1 e-scooter has been highly anticipated and its late arrival has not disappointed expectation. It’s packing some new stuff, some stuff we’ve seen before, and some smart stuff we like very much.

So here are five things we like the most about the new Vida V1.

Convertible like trousers which turn into shorts:

The Vida V1 has a split seat design. You have space for the two removable battery packs, behind which is a 26-litre underseat storage cabin.  

But if you remove the back panel, the space extends allowing for additional room for more of your stuff. Also, look at how sporty the design looks with that cover off… 

Customizable to your riding habits:

The Vida V1 features three riding modes – Eco, Ride and Sport. But there’s also a fourth, fully customisable mode with 100 presets to modulate the regeneration, top speed and acceleration levels.

It’s future proof:

Hero MotoCorp has been prepping charging infrastructure ahead of the Vida V1 launch with its partner Bharat Petroleum (BPCL) in tow. With removable batteries, the Vida V1 can not not only be charged conventionally, but also at home, and also be zipped up by a fast charger. Most importantly, it can soon jump on the battery swapping game without having to reengineer much.

In fact the charging port on the Vida is the same as on the Ather 450. Hence Hero’s fast charging network will be beneficial for them in the future, too. Meanwhile, fixed battery players like Ather and Ola will have to reconsider a new format.

Everything you need is well organised:

The instrument console is a large 7-inch, TFT touchscreen display with Bluetooth connectivity. But you also get a neat little Gameboy style four-way controller on the left switchcube top to toggle between menus. You also get a neat two-way throttle for reverse mode and short pulses of boost in power for brisk overtakes.

It looks fresh:

There’s no denying that the Vida is a good looking scooter. It has an imposing LED headlight on the front apron and the modular rear seat is a genuinely cool trick while being practical and sensible.

These were the five things that we found the most impressive on the new Vida V1 e-scooters. Vida is asking Rs 1,59,000 and Rs 1,45,000 for the V1 Pro and V1 Plus (ex-showroom, including Fame II) respectively. Furthermore, currently, it’s retailing in only three cities – Bengaluru, Jaipur and New Delhi, which is lesser reach than its current rivals. But let me leave you with a question: what’s the biggest impact you feel Hero MotoCorp can have on the budding EV scene?
