Otherwise, the rest of the scooter is similar and gets the same dimensions and size as the S1 Pro.
Attractive design, familiar looks with most of its design resembling the S1 Pro.
To keep its cost low, the S1 Air gets fewer features when compared to the top-spec S1 Pro.

While it is based on the S1 Pro itself, it gets a different suspension unit. Unlike the S1 Pro, it gets conventional telescopic forks at the front. The spring-type suspension at the rear is also different. Additionally, the footboard is also flat in design. Another noticeable change is the use of drum brakes on both wheels. Due to these changes, the kerb weight of S1 Air is also less. It weighs only 99 kg which helps in increasing its riding range. It is 26 kg lighter than the S1 Pro.
Disc brakes are a major miss. Ola could also have given CBS system. The light weight makes this e-scooter easier to manage & ride.
Ola has equipped the S1 Air with a 2.5 kWh battery pack. This battery generates a peak power output of 6 hp with the help of a 4.5 kW electric motor. However, this might look less on paper but the S1 Air does 0-40 km/h in a claimed 4.3 seconds. Additionally, the top speed of the S1 Air stands at 85 km/h. The riding range on a completely charged battery is 101 km. Hence, the cost-cutting has not affected the long-distance capabilities of the S1 Air. To charge its battery from 0-100 percent, the scooter takes a claimed time of 4 hours and 30 minutes.
The range offered is commendable and the charging speed is also reasonably fast. However, the top speed could have been a bit more.
