Both Optima LX (VRLA) and Optima LX are propelled by a 250 watts motor, while both Optima VX (single battery) and Optima VX (double battery) get driven by a 550 | 1200 watts motor.
Optima LX (VRLA) gets powered by a 48V / 20Ah valve-regulated lead-acid battery that takes eight to 10 hours to get fully charged and enables the scooter to cover a distance of 50 km.
Optima LX gets fed by a 51.2V / 30Ah Lithium-ion battery that takes four to five hours to get fully charged and allows the two-wheeler to cover a range of 85 km.
Optima VX (single battery) comes with a 51.2V / 30Ah battery which gets 100% charged in four to five hours and can cover up to 82 km.

All the variants come equipped with drum brakes and a combi braking system. It decelerates the front and the rear wheels simultaneously when the brake is applied.
Instead of style and advanced features, Optima gives more attention to practical details. For example, Hero Electric Nyx encompasses a hands-on and conventional design.
Optima’s rectangular-shaped headlamp features prominently between the handles and rearview mirrors. Like Nyx and Photon, it comes with a separate front mudguard accompanied by the above indicator lights on both sides.
The red-and-white logo of Hero Electric is fixed just below the headlamp, and the chrome-plated text of ‘electric’ is featured just above the left side indicator.
The bold letters ‘HERO ELECTRIC’ lies below the right side indicator.
A pair of telescopic forks and drum brake get fitted to the 12-inch chrome-finished front alloy wheel.
The floor panel area gives sufficient legroom for a rider of an average height and weight to comfortably sit and ride. The plastic compartment opposite the front seat offers enough space for small things.
The dashboard displays the necessary information like- speed, battery percentage, and distance covered. Between both handles, buttons for headlamp, horn, and side indicators get fitted. A pair of rearview mirrors allows the rider to see the vehicles coming from behind.
A charging point, located below the front seat, and the battery gets stored inside the boot. So, there’s sufficient room to fit personal belongings. The scooter incorporates a step-up seat which offers great comfort to both the rider and passenger.
The scooter has a ground clearance of 165 mm (the second-highest after Flash’s 170 mm). While on rest, it gets ably supported by its side and centre stand.
Hero Electrica Optima gets a prominent taillight with side indicators. A single-piece grab rail gets fitted just above it, enabling pillion riders to hold the rail and offer extra safety.
