By dhandapani on 25 08, 2011I bought a Hero Optima Plus and it is worth the money I paid for it. It cost only 29800 in my place and the ride is quite comfortable. For those who do not like speed it is an ideal vehicle. Parts are plastic , ok but we pay more for the same plastics in conventional (petrol) bikes.

By Kovilpatti.S.Ramaswami on 14 05, 2010Unless Electric energy storage unit
is cost effective and longer life with less weight, Electric Vehicle can not attract actual users.

Price may be comparise with durabilty and longer life span for recharagable power unit.

By Victor Pete on 23 11, 2009I own a Hero Optima EV. In one year, I have had to spend Rs 2,500 on spares, as most of the body is made up of plastics. Anyway, the big trouble is obtaining spares. My experience with the Hero Electric dealer is not satisfactory.

Forgot to add some more points

The Hero optima plus easily reached 30km/hr (sorry tested with only 1 person) while the ultima marathon barely reached 20).

On the charging cost side the ultra marathon takes only 1.1 units while the hero optima takes 1.3 (here again said by dealer).

Hero also has a better body paint and range of colours to choose from compared to ultra marathon.

The quality of plastic in both hero optima plus and the ultra marathon was not upto standard. Here both definitely have to improve.

For dealer in kochi, kerala, go to M and M motors in kaloor kadavantra road ( on kaloor side - some 50 mtrs away from railway overbridge). (Ph 9605000660)

Ultra motors dealer is at HKA Agencies, Palarivattom , near near church at janatha bus stop . ( ph 9846024365 - Aneesh, 9995801801,9995801802 )

By Sibi Joseph on 01 03, 2009For manufacturer site check Hero is bad with their google ratings and what i see from their site , updating dealer lists )

Its interesting to note that hero had a tie up with ultra motors of UK beginning Jan 2008 for making of electric scooters and the Ultra marathon and the Hero optima plus nearly looks the same.

I had a test drive of both the Hero Optima Plus and the the ultra motors marathon model and would like to share some of my findings.

Ultra marathon seems to have a jerky handle while the ride in hero is smoother. May be due to hero's experience with making honda bikes.

The seats of marathon also seemed less comfortable. Ultra motors claim to have a mileage of 100 km while the optima plus 70 km but unfortunately din't have the time to check both the claims so for time being let me believe that.

While breaking Marathon also seemed to create a nose from the motor. ( No i its not break lining noise :-) )

I also got a chance to try out the hero optima plus carrying 2 persons ( myself about 62kg and my friend 70 kg) on about 15-17 degree slope (For people in ,kochi kerala,India, its the railway overbridge in kaloor-kadavanthra road). dint have much of a problem. We even tried a dead stop half way u the slope and tried pulling up. Went ok and reached 20km/hr speed on the incline ( but note that the batteries were fully charged. Definitely performance should go down with a less charged battery).

Unfortunately i could not tryout Marathon on a slope as there was no bridges/ hills near the dealership

On the engine side -- sorry on the motor side, ultra motors seems to have a better technology as they are able to push the mileage to 100km with the same 48 v batteries that both ultra marathon and hero optima plus uses). As per the dealer the motor in Hero optima plus is made by Crompton Greaves Ltd.

On the whole i liked the Hero optima plus model more than the ultra marathon
