Tree Falls On Ather 450 In Bengaluru: Electric Scooter Survives Impact


Heavy rain in different parts of the country has brought some relief to the people. Along with the rains, we have also been seeing reports of heavy winds and dust storms that are damaging people’s properties and vehicles. In Bengaluru, the IMD has issued a yellow alert for the city, warning of impending heavy rains accompanied by thunderstorms and lightning. We have come across a video from Bengaluru where a tree fell on an Ather 450 electric scooter.

The video has been circulating on various social media platforms. In this video, we see a red Ather 450 scooter stuck under a fallen tree, with the tree resting on the scooter. It appears that the owner of the scooter had parked it under the tree without realizing the danger to escape from the rain.

The rider might have moved to a different location to avoid the rain when this happened. We believe the scooter was parked under the tree because the side stand of the scooter was engaged.

The tree is resting on the scooter, which is balancing itself on two wheels. The trunk of the fallen tree is on the seat, and upon careful inspection, none of the panels on the electric scooter appear damaged.

The accident happened in front of Krishna Diamond Apartment in Sahakarnagar during the recent Bengaluru rains. After the video was posted online, many social media users came forward pointing out the durability and sturdiness of the Ather scooter. The post mentions that only the side stand of the scooter was damaged, and other than that, everything else was working fine.

The scooter absorbed the impact quite well, which is a good thing. However, we would recommend the owner to get the scooter inspected at an Ather service center before using it. By inspecting the vehicle, the owner would come to know about any issues that are not visible to the naked eye.

If the tree had fallen a bit to the right or left, it would have damaged not only the scooter but also the Tata Ace or the Maruti Baleno parked right next to it. During rains or the monsoon, it is always recommended not to park your vehicle under a tree. During strong winds, the chances of branches breaking or a tree falling on the car, damaging the windshield or any other part of the car, are pretty high.

This is not the first time we have come across an incident like this in Bengaluru. Last week, a huge tree fell on a newly registered Honda Elevate SUV that was parked outside the Honda showroom on the city’s Lavelle Road. This incident took place opposite the Dakshin Honda car dealership, located behind the Bowring Institute.

It has been reported that this incident took place at 9:15 AM when a dried-out tree trunk fell on a brand-new silver Honda Elevate. The tree fell on the roof of the Honda Elevate SUV, but surprisingly, the SUV managed to absorb the impact well, and the roof did not collapse even after the tree fell directly on top.
