Okinawa Lite Electric Scooter Spotted For The First Time
The electric scooter looks production-ready, could make its debut by the end of this year
- Okinawa’s Lite electric scooter gets an all-new design language.
- It gets LED lights at the front, a start/stop feature and a new digital instrument cluster.
- The Lite could rival Bajaj’s recently-unveiled all-electric scooter, the Chetak.
The upcoming Okinawa Lite electric scooter has been spotted, and it looks close to production-ready. The pictures contain a lot of information about what sort of features the scooter will get once launched, so let's break it down.
First off, a picture of the front shows that Okinawa has used an all-new design language, which could be used in future products as well. The Lite electric scooter gets dual-LED headlights and DRLs mounted on the apron. Also on the apron are the front indicators which seem to be conventional bulbs.
The spy shots have also revealed that the upcoming electric scooter will get a digital speedometer as well as three riding modes: Low, High and Excess. Below the cluster, we can see a start/stop button which indicates that the scooter could get a keyless go function. We have already seen features like these making their way to the new Bajaj Chetak.
The tail-lamp and rear indicators are wrapped into one single unit, and the scooter seems to be quite compact overall. Up front we see a 10-inch alloy wheel and disc brake while the rear features a 10-inch steel wheel driven by a hub-mounted motor. As this is the first time that the scooter has been spotted, there’s no word about its power output.
With the addition of the Lite, Okinawa will have eight electric scooters in its portfolio, which is really astonishing since it has been around for just a couple of years. Apart from manufacturing electric scooters, the EV maker is also planning to add an all-electric bike to its portfolio, which could make its debut at the upcoming Delhi Auto Expo. Here’s what we know about this all-new electric bike.
