The Indian electric 2-wheeler space is booming. Not very long ago, you could count the options available on your hands. However, now even both your hands won’t suffice. The FAME-II Central Government subsidy and new State Government subsidy help the EV adoption further.
This specification comparison brings together a well-established electric scooter and a new entrant in the electric motorcycle category. The electric scooter is the Ather 450X, and the new entrant is the Pure EV eTryst 350. The unusual comparison between an electric scooter and an electric motorcycle aims to show what you lose or gain with either of the types.
Pure EV eTryst 350 Vs. Ather 450X – Price and Variants
The Pure EV eTryst 350 is available only in one variant. The price for the Pure EV eTryst 350 is INR 1,54,999 ex-showroom. However, it is important to note that the price does not include any accessories, labour, handling, fitting, delivery, or other incidental charges. The price also does not have any Central or State Government subsidies. The inclusion of subsidies will drop the cost further.
On the other hand, the Ather 450 comes in two variants – 450 Plus and 450X. The ex-showroom price in Mumbai for the Ather 450 Plus is INR 1,72,150. Meanwhile, the Ather 450X comes with a sticker price of INR 1,91,160 ex-showroom Mumbai.

Including the subsidies, the effective ex-showroom prices in Mumbai are INR 1,24,126 for the 450 Plus and INR 1,43,136 for the 450X. This ex-showroom price also includes the cost of the charging equipment.
