Launched in June 2020, Ampere released its third model by the name Magnus Pro, which is one of the best Electric Scooter in India. Starting at Rs. 66,715, it comes in four amazing colours and is available in only one variable. Magnus Pro comes with a combined braking system for both wheels and a lithium-ion battery. There are many other features such as a USB charging port, alarm system, and more which will be discussed below.
Design of Magnus Pro
For Magnus Pro, the Ampere company has greatly focused on its designs and looks. It has quite a stylish and sleek look. Starting from the front, the LED headlamp and the indicators all together are designed in a triangular shape with a metal strip outlining at the top. At the apron, the Ampere logo can be seen on a bulged surface and below it, there is a metal bar where the number plate can be fixed. A metal strip that starts from the bottom of the apron makes a ‘V’ and continues up into DRLs. So the metal strip and the DRLs together make a ‘V’. From the sides, it is quite angular and there are electric stickers on each side.
On the other side of the apron which faces the seat, there we have two pockets to hold things like mobile phones, keys, and water-bottles or whatever the rider prefers. There is a hook in between the pockets for hanging things. Just above the left pocket is the USB charging port and on the left is the ignition keyhole.
At the rear, we have LED tail lights and indicators all designed together in a curve matching the shape of the seat. Below that is the number plate bar. Then comes the tires which have a motor of BLDC type fixed in it. Both the tyres are tubeless and are 10 inches in size.
Coming to the digital cluster on the headset, the displays include a speedometer, tachometer, and odometer. On the display, there is also a green light that turns on when the start button is pushed in after ignition. There are a set of buttons near either side of the handles. On the left handle, there is a high and low beam button, and below it is a horn button and an indicator switch. On the right side are the headlight and the taillight switch and a start switch, on the right handle there is yet another switch is a high/low-speed switch.
The seat is very comfortable and so is the pillion seat. It is made of good quality and assists in giving the rider an excellent experience. On the pillion section, there is a pillion grab bar attached to the seat on the right, and on the left, there is a foot rest for the pillion seat next to the rear wheel. Behind the seat, there is a grab rail which is silver in colour and has a crisscross design.
The boot space is also very enormous and fits a helmet in it. It also has LED light for better vision in the dark. At the bottom of the boot space is a hatch that opens with a key. This hatch makes way for the lithium-ion battery. The battery can be removed from here when needed to charge. Otherwise, the battery can also be charged from the charging socket found under the seat. For this, the battery is not needed to be removed.
Adding one last piece of design information is that Ampere Magnus Pro comes in four colours which are Golden yellow, graphite black, bluish pearl white, and metallic red.
