Okinawa launched the Praise Pro in the Indian market last year at prices starting INR 79,277 ex-showroom, India and the brand has now shared the concept story of the Okinawa Praise Pro which highlights the electric bikes range to charging time ratio which claims to deliver a range of 100 km in just 3 hours of charging time. 

As the whole country is slowly recuperating from the lockdown imposed by the Govt. due to the COVID-19 / CoronaVirus pandemic, one of the ways to avoid being infected by the notorious novel virus is by maintaining social distancing. Using scooter not only enables automatic social distancing as compared to cars and public transport but it also helps save the environment. 

Our country has been struggling with pollution and in order to make India pollution-free, the Govt. of India has plans to shift the vehicle from ICE (Internal Combustion Engine) to EV (Electric Vehicle) and the Okinawa EV brand is in-line with the Govt’s initiative that promotes a clean and green environment at an affordable purchase price and running costs along with a balance between power, space and speed. 

The Okinawa Praise Pro is powered by a 1000-watt BLDC Waterproof motor with 2500-watt of peak power that claims to deliver 100-110 km on a single charge and offers a top speed of 70 kmph. The e-scooter comes with a 2kW detachable lithium-ion battery to address battery charging solutions for high rise buildings and can be charged using any 5 Amp charger similar to mobile chargers and its takes only 3 hours to charge. Which means in only 3 hours the e-scooter can run for about 100 km which is a typical run for about a week as a last-mile vehicle.  

The e-scooter also comes with a host of features such as LED Projector headlamp with DRLs, digital speedometer, Central Locking with Anti-theft Alarm, Keyless Entry, Find My Scooter Function, Mobile Charging USB Port, Motor Walking Assist (Front/Reverse Motion) etc. The Praise Pro is available in three colour options – Glossy Red Black, Glossy sparkle black and Glossy Blue Black. 

The brand offers a 3-year warranty on the battery and motor along with Roadside assistance.
