Okinawa launches new electric scooter ‘Praise’ at Rs 59,889

Okinawa on Tuesday launched a new electric scooter in India, the Praise, at Rs 59,889 (ex-showroom, Delhi).

This is the second electric scooter launched by the company after the Ridge and the new scooter claims a top speed of 75kmph, which makes it fastest in the electric two-wheeler segment of the country.

It is powered by a 1,000W electric motor while the Praise’s 72V, 45Ah lithium-ion battery provides a claimed range of 170-200km.

Bear in mind that the standard battery is a lead-acid type unit while the lithium-ion battery will cost around Rs 10k more but will bring faster charge times and significanntly lower weight.

Propelling the scooter is a high phase BLDC motor which is water resistant and comes with a few modes like Economy (35kmph), Sporty (65kmph) and Turbo (75kmph).

The torque output of the motor ranges from 18Nm to 40Nm which ensures a quick acceleration.

The sporty-looking electric scooter features an LED headlamp, underlined by a sweeping LED DRL.

The handlebar cowl gets turn indicators integrated while the handlebar comes with bar-end weights.

The Praise is available in three colour options – a dual-tone glossy purple and black, a matte blue and black, and a matte gold and black.
