Okinawa Praise Highlights
Okinawa will launch a new version of the Praise dubbed the i-Praise. The new e-scooter will get a lithium-ion battery unit compared to the lead-acid battery in the standard Praise. So we can expect a lighter kerb weight and faster charging times than the Praise. Okinawa is likely to price the i-Praise at a premium over the standard Praise. As for launch, the expected timeframe is January 2019.
The Okinawa Praise has finally made its way to the Indian electric two-wheeler market. The company claims that it can run 170km to 200km on one single full charge, which is incredible. It is the second offering from the Indian electric two-wheeler manufacturing company after Ridge. Claimed top speed is 75Kmph. The Okinawa Praise is priced at Rs 74,880 (On road, Delhi) and comes loaded with features, unlike its sibling which is an entry-level e-scooter. The new Praise is a premium offering that sports features like Anti-theft function, keyless start option, remote locking, a location tracker device called ‘Find My Scooter’, a mobile charging point. Adding to the features on this electric scooter, there is a fully digital instrument console, front and rear disc brakes and energy-efficient LED lights. On the mechanical front, it is powered by a 72 Volt/45Ah lead-acid battery that is good enough for 3.5bhp power and a massive 40Nm of peak torque. The figures are enticing especially the torque output that’ll keep buyers interested. There are three dual colour tones on offer including Glossy Purple/Black, Matte Blue/Black, and Matte Golden/Black. The Okinawa Praise competes against the likes of Hero Electric Wave, Hero Electric Optima and the Avon E Scoot in the Indian electric scooter market.

Praise Expert Review
Okinawa is set to launch the iPraise electric scooter that features a lighter detachable battery. It has already started accepting bookings for the same. The Okinawa Praise is a feature-packed electric scooter. It features a conventional design and gets apron mounted LED headlamps. It comes loaded with features. they include digital instrument console, Anti-theft sensor and mobile charging point. Highlights of the scooter include its claimed top speed of 75kmph, a range of 170-200km, The scooter is heavy though, owing to the lead acid battery pack it comes fitted with. The Okinawa iPraise though comes with a much lighter lithium-ion battery pack.
It has an odd seating position due to the abnormally high floorboard as the battery pack is mounted there. It gets two riding modes: an eco mode and Sporty. It also gets a turbo mode button that gives the motor a momentary boost that is enough to overtake slow vehicles. It also gets reverse assist.
It gets front telescopic and rear gas charged shock absorbers. Braking is via uniquely mounted twin discs at the front. The Okinawa Praise is priced at Rs 59,899 (ex-showroom Delhi). This electric scooter is quite practical and should serve as a replacement for conventional scooters if you are willing to compromise on some aspects.

There is resting support for the pillion for enhanced comfort. The side stand of the scooter comes with a side stand sensor that does not allow the vehicle to start when the stand is engaged, which certainly is a useful feature to have in a scooter.
