Vida V1 electric scooter review: Late bloomer

The Vida V1 is a well-equipped scooter but is priced uncomfortably high.

Published on Oct 15, 2022 12:00:00 PM

The handling is confident and enjoyable with the fun ultimately being restricted by a scraping main stand.

Hero MotoCorp is the last of the Indian mass-market two-wheeler manufacturers to launch an electric vehicle, and like Bajaj, they’ve decided to do it via a dedicated, premium EV sub-brand. The new EV brand is called Vida and the scooter is called the V1. The Vida V1 is available in two variants, the V1 Plus and V1 Pro. We have the Pro here and the main difference between the two is in the battery capacity. So most of what you read here will apply to both models.

Vida V1 review: design

The Vida V1 wears a brand new and rather unusual design. The most striking angle is its aggressive looking face with a low mounted LED headlamp, wide bodywork and flyscreen on top. The side profile is all about that large swooping body panel and the unusual split seat design. From the rider’s point of view, the Vida gets some premium looking switchgear and a 7-inch touchscreen TFT display.

Things get a little more unusual at the rear where there’s a lot of black plastic around the boot area. This is designed to be a modular system where you can remove the black plastics, or the rear seat, but the company says that this functionality will be available at a later date. In its current form, the boot space stands at 26 litres, which isn’t segment leading, but it is quite good. However, since the boot is split into two sections, you’ll only be able to store a small open face helmet in there.

Personally, the design is neither a deal maker, nor a breaker, however, the quality and finish could certainly improve. The issue is mainly in the feel and quality of plastics, of which there are a lot on this scooter. In some places they were rough, while in others the panel gaps were uneven. The switches themselves look good, but we found that the entire switchgear units would rock up and down on the handlebar. The company tells us that these are pre-production vehicles and these issues will be ironed out by the time production vehicles go to customers. This is something we will look out for when we get to properly review the production spec scooters on public roads. Nevertheless, while the quality does need to improve, the fundamentals seem to be in place when it comes to comfort.

Vida V1 review: ride and handling

The Vida V1 looks like a fairly large scooter in person and that translates to how you sit on it. The floorboard feels at a natural height, the seat is nice and spacious and the handlebar placement is pretty decent as well.

While we only got to ride the V1 on the super smooth test tracks at Hero’s sprawling Centre for Innovation and Technology in Jaipur, from what I could tell, there seems to be a decent level of compliance in the suspension. I suspect that this scooter should have a nicely absorptive suspension set-up on the road.

hero, vida, electric, bike, insurance

What we could tell for sure is that it’s a very nice handler. On Hero’s handling track, the scooter behaved in a predictable and stable manner without feeling excessively agile or quick steering like some scooters can. The V1 rides on 12-inch wheels with MRF tyres that had more than enough grip in the dry. Ultimately, the limiting factor on the track was the main stand that starts to scrape at high lean angles. That is hardly a real world problem and what you can expect is a well balanced scooter that is good fun to ride.

The Vida V1 Pro weighs 125kg, which puts it on par with the Ola at the heavier end of the scooter market, but it doesn’t feel cumbersome, and like with most EV scooters, there’s a reverse function if you need it. The braking capability is also good enough for this level of performance.

Vida V1 review: performance

The Vida probably isn’t the best handling e-scooter out there, but it is quite good and the same goes for its performance. With a top speed of around 80kph, it’s not the fastest e-scooter out there, but it’s quicker than most and the performance on offer should be more than enough for life in the big city.

The air-cooled swingarm mounted motor produces a peak of 6kW and the promised performance is similar to what you should get with the likes of the Ather 450X. In Sport mode, the acceleration between 20-50kph feels quite strong, but the urgency in the acceleration eases off after that. The scooter can hit an indicated top speed of a little over 80kph and it showed no signs of thermal distress in the time we spent with it.

The base V1 comes with three riding modes while the V1 Pro gets an additional custom mode that can be set up as per the rider’s liking.

Along with good performance, the Vida V1 also promises good range. The V1 Pro has a 3.94kWh battery while the V1 Plus gets a smaller 3.44kWh battery. Those numbers are good, but what separates the V1 from the competition is that this battery is split into two removable units that live under the seat. Each battery weighs 11kg, so I don’t think most people will want to take these out on a regular basis, but it is nice to have the option.

The Vida scooter can be charged in three ways. You can either remove the batteries and charge them outside, or you can charge the scooter directly using the provided home charger. Finally, the scooter also supports fast charging, and while Hero says it will set up its own network, the V1 can also use Ather’s fast charging network as it shares the same connector design.

Vida V1 review: features

Hero is positioning the Vida as a premium product and they’re throwing in a bunch of features to try and justify that. On the scooter itself, you get all-LED lighting, fully keyless functionality, cruise control and follow-me-home lights. There’s also a shielded SOS button on the handlebar that can send out an alert message via the mobile app in case of an emergency. In addition, there are a whole bunch of features that will be enabled by the app, but it wasn’t ready for us to try out at the launch ride.

While the scooter has been launched right now, as we’ve seen with most other EVs, deliveries will only begin in a while and in a few cities to start with. Hero says that bookings are now open and that deliveries will begin by December. Sales will start off in Delhi, Bengaluru and Jaipur with more cities being added later.

Vida V1 review: price

Clearly, the Vida V1 is a well equipped scooter, but that doesn’t shake the fact that this machine is priced a little uncomfortably high. The Vida V1 starts at Rs 1.45 lakh, ex-showroom, and the Vida V1 Pro goes all the way up to Rs 1.59 lakh, ex-showroom, and these are after the FAME 2 subsidy. Those put this scooter at the very top of the EV scooter market as of this moment. With such ambitiously high pricing Hero seems to have taken inspiration from the Ather 450X and the Bajaj Chetak, both of which are doing quite well at the moment despite being priced at around a similar point.

The thing is, Heros have always been positioned as cost effective, value for money options in the market, and they almost always cost less than the competition. The Vida V1 is not only the most expensive Hero on sale today, but it costs about double of what the company charges for some of its petrol scooters and I think that this pricing is going to be a challenge for the company.

Nevertheless, we’ll reserve our full verdict for when we get to properly test the Vida on public roads and against its rivals.

Vida V1

₹ 1,42,700 on road price (New Delhi)


One of the latest entrants in the EV two-wheeler market, the Hero Vida was launched in 2022. A brand that needs no introduction, Hero launched Vida with the aim to completely change the EV two-wheeler sector. One of the highly efficient electric scooters that you can find in the market today, the Hero Vida comes with features such as:

  • Combi brake system
  • LED headlights and taillights
  • Parking assist
  • Emergency alert service
  • Riding modes
  • Fast charging

Due to the delicate nature of the build of this scooter, any damage or loss can financially set you back. Thus, you must get proper financial coverage for your Hero Vida. This can be done by purchasing Hero Vida electric insurance when you purchase your scooter. You are financially compensated for damages or losses that could arise due to accidents, calamities, fire or even theft.

Types of Plans for Hero Vida Electric Scooters

The types of plans you can buy for your Hero Vida electric scooter fall into two main categories. These are:

Comprehensive coverage

Of these, third party liability insurance for Hero Vida electric scooters protects you from financial liability in the event of an accident and injury to another person or their vehicle. So, whether you have an electric vehicle or a conventional fuel vehicle, you should at least have third party liability Hero Vida insurance.

On the other hand, comprehensive insurance for Hero Vida electric scooters is a more comprehensive type of insurance. Comprehensive insurance for Hero Vida electric scooters offers third party liability coverage as well as other coverages such as personal compensation coverage, personal accident coverage, etc. You may not be legally mandated to be covered under Hero Vida electric scooter insurance, but it may be useful to do so. This allows you to be more financially protected.

Upon launch of the upcoming Hero Vida electric scooter from Hero MotoCorp, it will take on the likes of Bajaj Chetak and TVS iQube

After months of anticipation, Hero MotoCorp had announced the launch of a new subsidiary brand called Vida which will handle all operations in the electric vehicle (EV) space. The company’s entry into electric mobility had been discussed extensively over the last few months.

There were also questions regarding what brand name the bikemaker adopts for its EV business since rights for the ‘Hero’ brand are exclusively held by the Naveen Munjal-led firm Hero Electric. By opting for the brand name ‘Vida’, Hero MotoCorp has avoided all legal tangles and should now be able to FOCUS solely on product development.

Hero Vida Electric Scooter Delayed

The first model to come out of this new Vida brand will be an electric scooter which was earlier teased in August last year during the company’s 10th anniversary celebration. This electric scooter was planned for launch on 1st July 2022, which is also the birth anniversary of Dr. Brijmohan Lall, Chairman Emeritus of Hero MotoCorp. But that is not going to be the case now. As per the latest update from Hero MotoCorp, launch has been delayed to festive season 2022.

Mr. Swadesh Srivastava, Head of Emerging Mobility Business Unit (EMBU), said, “In line with our philosophy of providing the highest quality products to our customers, we remain committed to bringing the best of Electric Vehicles (EVs) for our customers across the globe. The ongoing geopolitical situation has resulted in enormous supply chain issues and shortage of various components, including semiconductors. Keeping customers as the top-most priority, we, therefore, feel it would be prudent to unveil the first EV product around the upcoming festive period instead of July as earlier announced. We are accordingly gearing up for the launch of VIDA – Powered by Hero – in the festive season.”

It is worth mentioning that the two-wheeler giant filed multiple trademarks for the name ‘Vida’ back in November last year. These included trademarks like Vida Electric, Vida Mobility, Vida EV, Vida MotoCorp, Vida Scooters, and Vida Motorcycles. Production of the upcoming e-scooter and other battery-powered models will be carried out at Hero’s new manufacturing plant in Chittoor, Andhra Pradesh.

Significance Of the name ‘Vida’

Deliveries of the electric scooter are expected to begin post launch. During the unveiling of the brand’s logo and the ‘sunrise’ visual identity of Vida, Dr. Pawan Munjal, Chairman CEO, Hero MotoCorp, gave some insights about the brand name. He revealed that Vida means life, and the brand’s sole purpose is to create a positive impact on the world and move us all forward in meaningful ways.

On this occasion, Hero MotoCorp also rolled out a US100 Million Global Sustainability Fund. This fund will aim to establish global partnerships, spearheaded by the BML Munjal University (BMU) and Hero MotoCorp, with the objective of nurturing more than 10,000 entrepreneurs on ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) solutions that have a positive impact on the planet.

Expected Details of Upcoming E-scooter

Hero MotoCorp has been tight-lipped about details of the upcoming electric scooter, however, an earlier teaser shed some light on it. The e-scooter sports a conventional underbone design and stands on 12-inch front and 10-inch rear black alloy wheels. It also didn’t feature a hub-mounted motor which means it could be powered by a mid-ship mounted electric motor with a belt drive.

While the launch of the scooter is delayed, by the time deliveries start later this year, there would be enough charging stations set up at Bharat Petroleum pumps in most of the major cities. Given the nature of Hero MotoCorp’s business, we expect the upcoming electric scooter to be priced aggressively around Rs 1.5 lakh, ex-sh.

Izip Vida Hands-on Review (2021)

This is the Izip Vida and it’s a super comfy upright, very low step, Bosch-powered class 1 ebike with 2.4” tires that feels like your riding a beach cruiser, but can handle some off-road dirt as well.

Quickly Ride to a Section.

The Izip Vida – At A Glance

Price.2800 Weight – small 52.5lbs, medium 53lbs – small loaded 56.6lbs – small with suspension fork 58.6lbs Sizes – small, medium, large Class 1 mid-drive

Range Test

I weigh 220lbs and can get 15-35 miles on this ebike in real-world testing. Depending on which assist mode I’m in, how many hills there are, and how windy it is. Lighter riders will get more range.

Of course, the bike can be ridden if the battery runs out, just without any motor assistance.


  • Upright riding position
  • Bosch Active Line Plus motor (good for all but the heaviest of us)
  • 2.4” tires
  • Priced very fair


  • 400wh battery
  • No, fenders, rear rack, or lights (they can all be added though)
  • No front suspension

Who’s it For?

If you want an ebike that you sit upright on and do not have to bend over, then this is for you.

If you have trouble lifting your leg up and over a bike to get on it, then this ebike is for you.

If you want comfort, style, a mid-drive Bosch motor, and be able to do some dirt roads, then this is your ebike.

This has been a top seller for us at Bend Velo Bike Shop!

Some Backstory

Izip has had a bit of a rocky road when it comes to ebikes. They have tried out many different motors both hub and mid drives and now that Izip has Bosch bikes they have finally hit their stride.

Izip still offers some budget ebikes with hub motors, but I have not tried any since 2019. I would recommend sticking to the Bosch mid-drive Izip ebikes if you can afford to.

When you buy an electric bike or any bike for that matter, what you are really buying is the ride. You could have the prettiest bike in the world and unless it rides well, it’s just a piece of artwork.

The Izip Vida has been one of the best ebikes we’ve carried at the shop, Our customers are generally older folks who love the low step-thru and wider tires.

This is also one good-looking bike! 2021 was the first year that Izip started integrating the battery into the downtube of the frame and it works seamlessly.

Scroll to the bottom to see the Izip Vida with a rear rack, fenders, and lights! We also have one that we added a suspension front fork!

Nuts Bolts

Here’s a breakdown of what comes stock on the bike

The Motor, Battery, and Display

These are the parts you are really looking for when buying an electric bike.

The Izip Vida uses Bosch, which is the best there is!


  • Bosch Active Line Plus gen3 class 1 mid-drive – 250 watts, 50nm of max torque – up to 270% assist


  • Bosch 400wh in-tube vertical, comes with Bosch compact charger (charges from 0-100% in about 7hrs)

The Drive Train

If you are looking for a pedal-assist mid-drive ebike then the drive train is very important. This is the gearing and shifting part of the bike. You will want lower gearing if you plan to ride up steep hills.


Now the tooth count on the cassette is where you can tell how low the gearing is, the higher the tooth count on the biggest cog, the lower the gear is.

Shimano’s 9-speed Alivio group is really quite good. It’s nice that they paired it with a cassette that has 36 tooth low gear. This makes climbing hills much easier, especially since your sitting more upright on this bike.

The Brakes

The brakes on an ebike can often get overlooked, but when you are able to cruise at speeds above 20mph it is good to know you have brakes that stop you fast if necessary.

The Izip Vida comes with the Tektro Auriga hydraulic disc brakes, 2 piston front and rear with 160mm rotors.

This is a pretty awesome brake set for a comfort cruiser-style bike. These brakes will work for years on this bike. Good job Izip!

The Fork

The Vida comes with an aluminum fork and has standard quick-release dropouts with eyelets on the mid to lower part of the fork. I have installed full front fenders and front racks on many of these bikes and it works great.

Also, note that the fork is really wide and can clear up to a 2.8” tire if you wanted a little more cushioning on the front end.

Wheels –

The Vida comes with double-walled, 36 spoke, non-tubeless rims laced to Formula quick-release hubs.

Pretty strong for this type of bike, especially running 36 spokes.

hero, vida, electric, bike, insurance

Tires –

The tires are Schwalbe Moto-X – size 27.5 x 2.4” These are some of my favorite tires for riding just about any terrain.

For off-road just lower your tire pressure a little and these tires grip very well even though they are smooth. I have ridden these exact tires on just about every surface and they rock. Just be cautious when turning in sandy areas.

Before you buy –

This ebike comes pretty bare-bones, but I have installed front and rear racks, full cover fenders, and lights hooked into the Bosch system. It can also take front baskets well.

At the End of the Day

I just love this bike! I have had many smaller women come into the shop who were not able to find an ebike that they could lift their leg over until they found this one.

The fact that this bike comes with wider 2.4” tires is also a great thing. Not everyone is going to take their bike off-road, but just knowing that you can, inspires confidence.

This is a review of the 2021 model, but Izip will be offering the same Vida model for 2022, just with different color schemes. (it will also cost a little more) Look for that review as soon as we get one at the shop! Also know that for 2022 Izip will be coming out with the Vida Loca, which will be class 3 and have fenders and lights!

This bike has been available for order online in the past but due to supply issues, you may only be able to find one at your local dealer. Currently in stock at Bend Velo Bike Shop!

Bonus – The Izip Vida with rack, fenders, and lights!

Here’s what the Izip Vida looks like with fenders, a rear rack, and lights!
