Ather Energy to bring back transparent panels for Ather 450X
Tarun Mehta, Co-founder and CEO of Ather Energy has announced that they will be bringing back the transparent panels for the Ather 450X electric scooter. Ather used to sell a Collector’s Edition version of the Ather 450X that used to come with translucent panels and a special paint scheme. However, the co-founder says that this time, the panels will be transparent. As of now, it is not confirmed whether the 450S will be getting the transparent panels or not.
The Collector's Editon was introduced back in 2020 for early adopters. It came with a high-gloss metallic body finished in black. It came with red accents as well that Ather says were inspired by motorsports and there was also a racing stripe on the front apron. The wheels got a red decal and the red frame was also left exposed. The translucent panels were made with automotive-grade plastic that offers structural integrity. Apart from this, the instrument cluster also has a custom user interface.
The 450X is currently offered in six colour options - Cosmic Black, Salt Green, Space Grey, Still White, True Red and Lunar Grey. The 450S also gets the same colour schemes except the True Red and Lunar Grey which are reserved for the 450X only.
