At a kerb weight of 80 Kg is pretty low but still, performance won’t be brisk considering the fact that Motor power is about 1.1 bhp (800 W). Braking duties are taken care of by Front Disc brake and Rear Drum brake. In our Opinion, the brakes will provide enough braking power to stop this lightweight electric scooter.

The styling is subjective and nothing special to talk about. An instrument cluster is an all-digital unit with basic information on the display. The Utility Box at the rear part looks bland. But it will store basic things like a water bottle, small bags etc.
Speaking about the new series, Pankaj Tiwari, Business Development Head, Avan Motors said, “Electric vehicles are the future of commuting and our vehicles have shown that eco-friendliness need not come at the cost of less performance. The Xero+ has received great response from our users and comes at a very practical price point. Continuing with its success story further, Avan plans to launch new scooters and vehicles across categories to meet the needs of a wide consumer segment.”
He further said, “Every product will be a unique one in its category, equipped with an array of features that will make them a leader in their respective segments. We are also working with advanced technology that promises to enhance the user experience and benefit them in different ways. With our new range of e-scooters and an effective pricing strategy, we want to encourage more people to go the EV way. Not just as a novelty but as a big part of their lifestyle, becoming the norm rather than an alternative.”
