When it comes to the weight of the electric scooter, the S1 is 4kg lighter than the S1 Pro, at 121kgs. The charging time of the S1 is 5 hours. However, the electric motor remains the same for the S1 and S1 Pro i.e. 5.5 kW. The maximum speed of the S1 is 95 km/h.
The Ola S1 misses some important features in the form of Hyper Mode. The modes that are available on the S1 are Eco, Normal and Sports. The important features on the electric scooter include MoveOS features like Music Playback, Navigation, Companion App, and Reverse Mode.
