The Okinawa Praise Pro electric scooter is powered by a 1 kW, BLDC waterproof motor. The Motor is driven by a 2 Kwh detachable battery which can deliver a peak power output of 2.5 kW. To charge up the batteries of the Praise Pro, you would just need 2-3 hours. The motor and battery both have come with a three-year/20,000kms warranty.
As mentioned earlier, this electric scooter gets three riding modes – Eco Sport and then a Turbo Mode. The Eco mode however limits the top-speed of the scooter to just 30-35 kmph. The Sport mode will let you take it up to 50-60 kmph while the Turbo mode lets you dash the scooter up to 60-70 kmph. However, the Turbo mode will compromise on the range significantly.
As for the other mechanical bits and bobs, the Okinawa Praise Pro gets disc brakes on both the front and the rear and also benefits from E-ABS (Electronically Assisted Braking System) with the regenerative system. Suspension duties of the scooter are taken care by telescopic forks at the front and dual shock absorber in the rear.
The Okinawa Praise pro also gets other handy features such as adjustable brake levers, central locking with anti-theft alarm, keyless entry, find my scooter function and mobile charging USB port. It also looks pretty good with a chunky face and a conventional scooter design. It does not give away easily that its an electric scooter, unless of course it passes by you in silence.
