The scooter features a 1200watt electric motor and is capable of touching a top speed of 42 kmph. This electric motor squeezes power from a 51.2V/30Ah portable battery that has been rated to deliver a full range of 82km per charge. The system takes a total of up to five hours to get fully charged.

There is also a dual-battery version of the same model available for purchase. It has been priced at 58,980 post the latest revision in the FAME II subsidy. This version can cover a total distance of 122 km on a single charge.

Some of the key features on the scooter include apron-mounted turn indicators, a USB port, a digital instrument cluster, 12-inch alloy wheels, a remote lock, an LED headlight, and an anti-theft alarm. It also gets a step-up seat and a single-piece pillion grab rail that give the scooter a modern look. Moreover, it is available for purchase in four colour options - Red, Grey, Blue, and White.
