Bookings are open for the Okinawa Praise, the most powerful electric scooter (Priced at Rs 59,899)
Indian electric scooter manufacturer, Okinawa will soon show us the most powerful electric scooter. There are no official details about the Okinawa Praise but the Ridge is already the fastest electric scooter in India. The Ridge can go up to a top speed of 55km/h while other scooters at most go up to 40km/h. The scooter can charge in 4-6 hours and also charge in 1-2 hours with optional fast charger. The Ridge has a range of 80-90km per charge.
The ex-showroom price of the Ridge is Rs. 42,400. You can also buy the Ridge on Paytm and get Rs. 2,000 cashback.
Okinawa Praise: The Most Powerful Electric Scooter
At the launch of the Ridge, the company showed us a teaser of the Praise. The officials also said that it’ll be “fast and exciting“. We expect the new Praise to be capable of attaining a top speed of 70km/h. That top speed is comparable to the Honda Activa and other scooters. We’d like to see the range of the scooter to go up to 140-150km. So then, you can get about 80-90km even if you ride it at high speeds.
Okiwana Praise can cost around Rs. 65,000 – 70,000, which is expensive but comparable with the Honda Activa 4G. This price will make it competitive with the Activa while offering similar performance and range with lower maintenance.

The lightweight alloy wheels will give it lower rotating mass for better performance and long range. The lithium battery is lighter and can contain more charge. It’ll also help with the range without affecting the kerb weight. The Ridge gets cheaper lead-acid batteries.
