Does the new iQube variant have what it takes to go up against the Rizta?

TVS iQube vs Ather Rizta

TVS Motors recently launched new variants of the TVS iQube electric and it includes the TVS iQube ST 3.4kWh variant. This variant goes up against the recently launched Ather Rizta, specifically the top-end Ather Rizta Z 3.4kWh variant. We have compared both the scooters through an image comparison here to see what each has to offer.

Design

Both electric scooters come with a typical family-oriented scooter design, with the boxy body, spacious floorboard and the large seat. But when taking a closer look it is clear that the iQube is able to bring a bit more premium feel. This is due to small details like the LED DRLs which are well integrated into the headlight cowl and the paint finished mirrors that bring a sort of continuity to the overall design.

The Rizta doesn’t really stand out in this regard, but makes up for this with a wide range of colour options. The single tone and dual tone options look really good, and the Rizta overall has a more youthful vibe. The iQube on the other hand comes with single tone glossy colour options which come off as a bit too plain.

The TVS iQube ST comes with a 4.4kW motor which gives a claimed top speed of 78kmph. Whereas, the Ather Rizta gets a 4.3kW motor and offers the scooter a claimed top speed of 80kmph. When comparing both in terms of power, the difference is very minor. 

But when judging both e-scooters in terms of range, the Ather Rizta Z offers a claimed range of 160km. The iQube ST on the other hand offers a claimed range of 100km. The Ather Rizta Z is the clear winner here.

Underpinnings

Both e-scooters are quite similar in terms of underpinnings. They roll on 12-inch wheels at both ends and braking duties are taken care of by a disc at the front and a drum at the rear. That said, the TVS iQube features twin shock absorbers in the rear, whereas the Rizta gets a monoshock.

Features

In terms of storage space both are somewhat equal, with the Rizta offering a 34-litre boot space and the iQube offering 32-litres. 

Coming to the console, both the Ather Rizta and the TVS iQube feature a 7-inch touch TFT console, with smartphone connectivity and related features such as turn-by-turn navigation and Call/SMS Alerts.

The Ather Rizta, with the Ather Stack 6 update now brings the option to reject calls with a message, along with Whatsapp integration. There’s also integrated voice assistance via Alexa. While the Rizta offers features that improve the overall convenience, the TVS iQube has more offerings in terms of security such as anti-theft alert, crash/fall alerts and geofencing.

Lastly, the Rizta has a traction control system which Ather calls an anti-skid feature. This is the first time we are seeing a traction control system in this segment. It will definitely improve the overall safety of the rider and is a good addition, especially for a family oriented scooter.

Which One Should You Buy?

When looking at performance and features, it is clear that the Ather Rizta has a lot more to offer. The e-scooter has a far greater claimed range and also offers more features, including safety features like the traction control system. That said, we’ll put both scooters against each other in the real world soon. As of now, we have ridden the Ather Rizta and our first ride review will be dropping soon, so stay tuned for more about that.
