The newly launched Ola S1 is equipped with safety features including an anti-theft alert system and geo fencing. The scooter will pack a battery which is claimed to be flame retardant and water and dust resistant. The Ola S1 comes with front and rear disc brakes and a ‘hill hold' feature that is designed to make riding in traffic and navigating inclines easy. It is equipped with 110/70 R12 tyres, rear mono-shock suspension, and front single fork suspension.

On the software front, the Ola S1 runs on MoveOS 2, which offers features navigation, music playback, companion app, and reverse mode.
