Ather Rizta Electric Scooter Launched: See Details


For a company that makes the futuristic-looking 450S and 450X, the Rizta’s design is rather conservative. The shape of the body panels, the minimal creases and the subtle colours are all indicative of the fact that the Rizta is aimed at the family-scooter buyer. One that doesn’t like over the top designs.


Ather has loaded the Rizta with a host of features in keeping with today’s times. The base version of the Rizta is called ‘S’ and it gets the Ather ‘Deepview’ LCD display like the one you see in the Ather 450S. It features Bluetooth connectivity, music controls, navigation and more.

Motor and battery

The Ather Rizta is based on the 450-series platform and hence shares the same motor and battery. It has a PMSM electric motor that develops 22Nm of peak torque. The Rizta S and Rizta Z available with a 2.9kWh battery and offers an IDC range of 123km.


The Ather Rizta is based on the company’s 450-series’ platform and uses the same main frame. The subframe, however, is all-new and bigger to accommodate the 900mm long seat. The frame is suspended by a telescopic fork at the front and a monoshock at the rear. The scooter rides on 12-inch wheels that are shod with MRF rubber.
