TPMS for better range
The Ather 450X Gen3 continues to be the benchmark of ride quality and boasts a first-of-its-kind all-aluminum frame in the segment, perfectly balanced weight distribution, and an incredibly low center of gravity. To enhance the riding performance, the 450X gets wider rear tyres, which are basically designed to provide better grip during leaning turns and shorter braking distances. This is achieved by a new compound and improved tread profile, providing 22 percent better grip in all weather conditions. To ensure that ride consistency and handling remain at an optimum level in the vehicle, Ather has introduced Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS). It is also important to maintain TPMS range as low tire pressure increases the pressure on the battery. While the TPMS is an accessory, it is an essential fitment to ensure everyday handling, performance and consistency across the range
