Komaki Venice v/s Ola S1 Pro: Which one is better?
Homegrown automaker Komaki Electric Vehicles recently launched its Venice scooter in India. The vehicle bears a retro-inspired look, offers lots of tech-based features, and promises a range of 90-120km on a single charge. At a price-point of around Rs. 1.1 lakh, should you purchase the Venice or the Ola S1 Pro, which is another great option? Let us have a look.
- Komaki Venice is a decent-looking scooter with lots of features. It has been priced competitively on our shores and is tipped to raise the competition in the electric two-wheeler segment.
- On the other hand, the Ola S1 Pro is an extremely popular model marred by production and delivery delays. This article compares the two e-scooters to help you decide which one is better.
Komaki Venice sits on a steel frame and has a circular headlight as well as mirrors, double seats, a storage box at the rear, and alloy wheels. The Ola S1 Pro is built on a tubular frame and gets a smiley-faced headlamp, alloy wheels, and a single-piece seat. They get full-LED illumination, a Bluetooth-enabled digital instrument cluster, a self-diagnosis system, and an anti-theft lock.
The Komaki Venice draws power from a 3kW electric motor linked to a 2.9kWh Lithium-ion battery pack. The setup allows the vehicle to deliver a claimed range of 90-120km on a single charge. On the other hand, the Ola S1 Pro packs an 8.5kW electric motor mated to a 3.97kWh battery. On a single charge, it promises up to 181km of range.
Komaki Venice and Ola S1 Pro are equipped with disc brakes on both front and rear wheels, along with a combined braking system and cruise control. The latter also gets riding modes and hill-hold assist. Suspension duties on the former are handled by telescopic front forks and twin rear shock absorbers, while the latter gets a single front fork and a rear mono-shock unit.
In India, the Komaki Venice electric scooter carries a price-tag of Rs. 1.15 lakh, while the Ola S1 Pro sports a price-figure of Rs. 1.3 lakh (both prices, ex-showroom). Though the Komaki Venice costs slightly less, our vote goes in favor of the S1 Pro as it offers better looks, a greater range, and lots of tech-based features.
