What is good and bad in S1?

  • S1 Positives

    Light on its feet; Ride quality is pliant; Has an enormous boot

  • S1 Negatives

    Throttle calibration is imperfect; Switchgear lacks tactile feel; Inconsistent quality issues

  • Expert's Conclusion

    In our experience, the Ola S1 Pro has proved to be a promising scooter that could combine practicality and performance. But, there is a “but.” Sure, while quality could be better, it isn’t a deal-breaker. The unexplained drop in performance dampened the riding experience and the more subtle issue of poor throttle calibration hampers the promise of practicality and is a potential safety concern.

  • Design wise it is better but can be improved by making flat to that leg holding area where we get a spinal type thing which may be supporting whole chassis but it is ruining experience of driver while carrying something.Comfort wise it is good.There are some other features which also can be added.

  • It's fantastic bike good keep it up ola i am very very happy to having this type of bike which has amazing look and has a top speed of 120 wooo it's crazy ride and hoping to ola to make this type of bikes again and again.Really nic job ola i really appreciate your work.It's on you wheather you want to give me iphone or not but yes, This review is from my heart.Again nice job and keep it up.

  • Worst scooter….It’s just a hype created in the market / social media….There are few security glitches ….

  • Test drive of the vehicle was amazing.But i must tell you, Their organisation is extremely inefficient and they don’t value customers.Delivery is taking hell a lot of time.Try to reach their support team, They will make sure that you stress your head out.Really annoying.Never go for ola.

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying S1

Q. Is the battery removable or not? Can this scooter be charged at home?
  • Ola Electric S1 gets a fixed battery. As for charging, first up, there’s the conventional home charger that will be provided with the scooter. It requires no additional installation; customers can simply plug it into a regular wall socket overnight (the PR doesn’t mention whether it is 5A or 15A, but we assume it is the former) for a complete charge. Next up, there will be charging ports across public places like parking lots, IT parks, colleges, malls, and the likes. These will be of the fast-charging type. Ola claims its scooter can be charged from 0-50 percent in just 18 minutes, which will be enough for a 75km ride. On paper, this should translate to a claimed range of 150km, which is brilliant. However, it remains to be seen at what speeds this figure is achieved.
Q. Is this scooter good for riding on hills?
  • The excitement of the Ola S1 Pro has been built on its electron munching hardware. Developed in-house, the motor’s 5.5kW of power makes other offerings pale in comparison, and that’s without factoring in the 8.5kW of peak power. Considering the power and its compact dimensions, the scooter should fair well in the hills. A 115kmph top speed claim eclipses all scooters and several motorcycles at this price point too. The range of 181km makes it a genuine solution for the family. The Hyper mode is potent, but it doesn’t feel as explosive off the line as Ather’s Warp mode, which sends the 450x rocketing off the line. The S1 Pro starts in a sprightly manner and unleashes even more of its potential once it builds some speed. We ended up spending more time in Sport mode as the initial throttle response in Normal mode was quite soft, which made it feel sluggish. Switching to Sport mode made the S1 Pro immediately peppier as the throttle response was stronger and it increased the top speed from the Normal mode. However, Sport mode highlighted another issue: a lag when opening the throttle. The motor was a bit slow to respond, which means riding at low speeds doesn’t feel smooth or predictable and can catch you off-guard - like when making U-turns. Also, when you close the throttle, the motor continues to accelerate for half a second after, and that can make things a little hairy. The software that links the batteries, throttle and motor played up further as it reduced performance without warning. Read more -Ola S1 Pro First Ride Review: Worth The Hype?.
Q. What are the electric two wheelers available that doesn't require license?
  • The electric scooters that run on a 250 W motor and the ones that have a top speed of 25 kmph do not require a driver's license or number plate registration.

Q. Battery warranty?
  • At least they supposed to give 5years warranty but 3years is less ....bcoz battery replacement cost is 60% amount of the vehicle after three years battery repair we need to pay 40-50k to replacement the new battery
  • As of now, the brand has not revealed the warranty details of the Ola Electric S1 as the model is just launched. We would suggest you wait for the official announcement. Stay tuned.
  • 2 years is max life of li-ion, li-polym, li-phosphate battery, hence no company mobile or 2 wheeler provides warranty more than 2 years. customers need to use their brain staying away from marketing and promotions videos
