Ampere Nexus

Ampere, a brand known for its electric two-wheelers, has launched its latest offering, the Ampere Nexus. This premium electric scooter boasts a stylish design, impressive performance, and a range of features that cater to the needs of modern riders.

Striking a Balance Between Style and Functionality

The Ampere Nexus features a conservative design that prioritizes functionality. Flat body panels and minimal creases create a clean and contemporary look. Functional air vents located at the front and rear ensure proper cooling for the scooter’s internal components. Offered in four color options – Zanskar Aqua, Steel Grey, Indian Red, and Lunar White – the Nexus allows riders to express their individual style.

Powerful Performance for City and Highway Riding

The Nexus packs a punch with its new 4kW electric motor, capable of propelling the scooter to a top speed of 93 kilometers per hour in ‘Power’ mode. This makes it suitable for highway cruising, while the City mode’s 63 kilometers per hour limit ensures a comfortable and safe riding experience in urban areas. For enhanced efficiency, an Eco mode restricts the top speed to 42 kilometers per hour, maximizing battery range. Additionally, a Limp Home mode automatically engages when the battery level drops below 20%, allowing riders to reach a charging station safely. A reverse mode provides added convenience for maneuvering in tight spaces.

Long-Range Battery with Advanced Safety Features

The Nexus is equipped with a new 3kWh LFP battery, boasting a certified range of 136 kilometers. This Lithium Iron Phosphate battery offers superior thermal stability, making it ideal for India’s hot climate. Ampere claims that a full charge can be achieved in just over three hours using the included 15A charger. For riders seeking faster charging times, a 25A fast charger is available as an optional purchase.

Ampere prioritizes safety with the Nexus’s IP67 rated battery. This rating signifies that the battery is dust-tight and can withstand water immersion up to 1 meter for 30 minutes.

A Comfortable and Stable Ride

The Nexus is built on a new underbone chassis that provides a stable and comfortable ride. Telescopic forks at the front and twin shock absorbers at the rear handle suspension duties, ensuring a smooth ride over uneven surfaces. The scooter rides on 12-inch alloy wheels, while braking is handled by a disc brake at the front and a drum brake at the rear. A decent 170mm ground clearance allows the Nexus to navigate obstacles and uneven roads with ease.

Tech-Savvy Features for a Connected Ride

The Nexus caters to tech-savvy riders with a variety of features. The top-of-the-line Nexus ST variant boasts a 7-inch touchscreen TFT display with Bluetooth connectivity. Once paired with a smartphone, riders can access incoming calls, messages, and turn-by-turn navigation directly on the instrument cluster. The display also features music controls and an automatic day/night mode for enhanced visibility.

The base variant, Nexus EX, comes with a slightly smaller 6.2-inch segmented LCD display with limited connectivity features. It lacks navigation, music controls, and the automatic day/night mode for the screen.
