Ola vs Ather vs Chetak – Hill Climb Test

The video has been uploaded by a YouTuber and he has all three e-bikes side-by-side. The location is around Pune where the hills are a part of life. That is why the YouTuber decided to test the performance of these e-bikes on inclines. In the first attempt, he takes the Chetak electric up the hill along with a pillion passenger. In the beginning, the Chetak is put in the Eco mode and the launch is decent. However, once the electronics of the e-scooter realises that the drive is consuming a lot of power, it automatically switches to Sport mode. Then, the bike overcomes the sharp turn on an incline with relative ease and reaches the top without any worry. The top speed achieved during this test was 40 km/h.

Then the YouTuber takes the Ather up the same route with the same pillion passenger. The test begins in Normal mode and the bike starts off well. However, it started to slow down as the testing curve arrived and the rider had to switch to Sport mode on the fly. The bike was very responsive and carried on with an instant burst of torque. It reached the top without any worries with a top speed of 60 km/h.

In the final attempt, Ola was taken up the hill with similar parameters. However, once it slowed down on the steep curve in Normal mode, it didn’t move forward even in the Sports mode. One rider had to get off but the e-scooter refused to move forward. Then they decided to carry the momentum in Sport mode and the bike was able to move past the dreaded curve in Sport mode. However, soon afterwards, the bike became too hot and the engine was switched off. The YouTuber head to push the scooter manually for some time. When the temperature became normal, it was able to switch back on.
