Okinawa Praise is the company’s second electric scooter to enter the Indian market after the budget-friendly model called Ridge. The Government of India has expressed its plans to make the country an all-electric car market by 2030 and the sale of petrol and diesel powered vehicles will be stopped completely. Okinawa Praise is an electric scooter that wants to stay ahead of the game and give tough competition to the market leaders like Honda Activa and TVS Jupiter. Here are a few things to know about the scooter.
Premium Looks of the Okinawa Praise
The electric scooters we have seen so far in India have frankly been doomed partly due to their looks but Okinawa Praise is no regular competitor. With premium looks and an edgy design, it also offers a full LED headlamp and tail-lamp cluster which puts it in the league of best-looking scooters in India.

If futuristic is your thing then this electric scooter in India has a lot more going on for you. If you have ever been worried about your scooter been stolen then it is time to leave those days behind because the Okinawa Praise comes with a ‘Find My Scooter’ feature which much like a smartphone these days will tell you the exact location of your electric scooter on a map.
