In a recent posting on Facebook, an owner of a brand new Ola S1 Pro complained that the front fork on his scooter was broken. The photo that was posted shows the dislodged front wheel. One resident reported that this occurred just six days after he received it.
Sanjeev Jain, the owner of the Ola S1 Pro scooter, was posted on the Facebook page with supporting pictures. The picture shows the scooter being kicked down after the front fork gave up. There appears to be no signs of an accident or impact on the bodywork. Ola is yet to issue a statement on the incident.
The Ola S1 Pro has been on the market for a year now and must be operational very soon. The company has also encountered issues with battery packs which has resulted in the scooter becoming caught in the car.
