There are a few significant mechanical changes to the new Ola S1 Pro as well. This includes things like a dual suspension rod to make it more sturdy since the old model had tons of cases of broken suspension. To boost the practicality, the new model now has a flat floor allowing riders to carry luggage easily. The older model had a bump in the middle. However, the storage capacity has been reduced from 36 litres to 34 litres. Apart from that, there is an additional metallic plate to support the swingarm now. All these tiny details will contribute substantially to the appeal of the electric scooter.

Some Issues Still Remain
While there are so many positive changes to the new model, some undesirable old habits have seeped into this new version as well. The vlogger mentions that the build quality of some components continues to be poor. He shows the flimsy footrest. In addition, the glitches in the software are still present. He shows the screen of the electric scooter getting frozen. Therefore, the buyers must be vary of these aspects before making a purchase decision. We hope that Ola works on fixing these final issues in its electric scooters too.
