12" wheelbase? [lol] How come they make these silly mistakes during official launch?



Otherwise it's a good looking e-scooter with a decent range, provided the quality is not compromised. Front brake is eye catchy [thumbsup]

PS: Honda Dio inspired (or rather copied) design

R&D is neither involved nor responsible for the launch event and the contents.
Why can't you take a small joke and that too when its the year end[:D] I do know it that R&D has nothing to do with the events.
Sole responsibility of S&M
It was printing error bro and can happen sometimes. As for the design, at the launch, the OEM mentioned that often people say the EV(s) (2&4 wheeler) aren't stylish so they made a effort to give this Scooter an attractive looking design. Might be possible that some design inspirations were taken from the existing popular scooters too.

Be it year end or what ever, 'Auto Talk' section is not the place for Jokes and I hope that's not inline with the Forum protocol. Stop making fun on the 'R&D' part. Period.

As an example, if 100 is printed as 10 or 1000 it can be classified to be a printing error, but not a completely irrelevant figure in place. Being associated with this industry I know the level of proof checks done for any small information that is about to be shared on a press release and such silly mistakes shows nothing but their level of carelessness and in future it may reflect in the product quality as well.

I stop this topic here, let's discuss something fruitful on the thread intention.

Do you really think I actually meant to demean a highly respectful field of automobiles? Anyways bro thanks a ton! As you had said the design looks "copied" / "inspired" from some other popular scooter brand, hence, I cracked the "joke" on a possible lapse on their part as prior to the unveiling/launching of the product
at the development stage there is a lot of emphasis on the R&D team too.

Actually I do agree with you that checks are conducted and proof reading is done but an unintentional error shouldn't be made a big deal. I am not saying that the above error is justified, all I am saying is unintentional errors can happen with anyone & any brand. At the end of the day, every process at some point needs human intervention and humans are prone to make mistakes. No brand or associated agencies purposely works to tarnish their own image.

PS: As far the product quality is concerned, w.r.t, Okinawa Praise, as I have seen it, it does look like a genuine effort from the OEM to provide a lasting product w.r.t the quality of material used in it. It might not look as plush to some of us like the products from the mainstream OEMs but definitely in no ways it looks like a half-hearted attempt. Secondly, will it be reliable in the long run or not, that depends on ownership feedback in future.

In your battery options you show Lithium Ion battery as an option. But the dealer doesn't have Praise available with the option doesn't take any booking for it either. This is with reference to your dealer in Hyderabad.

A layman’s question, how many units of power will be consumed for 0 to 100 % battery recharge?
Please throw some light...
Calculate the Watts. The battery is 72V and 45 Ah, so watts will be 72 x 45 = 3240 Watts = 3.24 kW (3.24 units). However, this is under ideal condition. You can expect inefficiency due to high ambient temperature, loss due to resistance etc. so the actual units consumed may be 3.89 ~ 4 units [3.24+(3.24 x 20%)]

Praise completes an arduous journey on treacherous roads and climatic conditions; reaches Khardung La Pass amidst great celebrations

New Delhi, June 25, 2018:-A child monk screaming excitedly while zipping across the windy mountain roads on a brand new electric-scooter-that is the picture perfect meeting of the past and the future. This meeting was realized recently when Okinawa Scooters, India’s fastest growing electric two-wheeler manufacturing company, began a journey of 10 days and 1350 kms with ‘Praise’ - #WheelsOfChange. The historic expedition was the first time an electric vehicle even attempted to scale a height of more than 18000 ft, let alone complete it successfully.

Under the campaign ‘Praise De Himalaya’, the first ever journey of its kind flagged off from Gurgaon in the presence of Okinawa’s Managing Director – Mr. Jeetender Sharma, Chairperson – Mrs. Rupali Sharma and all their PAN India dealers. Spanning across destinations such as Ambala, Jalandhar, Pathankot, Banihal, Ganderbal, Sonamarg, Srinagar, Bhimbat, Lamayuru, Leh and finally Khardung La, Praise convincingly conquered the mountains where many petrol and diesel motorcycles run out of horsepower. With this journey, the fastest e-scooter on Indian roads has given further proof of its unparalleled power and has definitely made its intentions clear of giving conventional fuel variant automobiles in its category a run for their money!

Okinawa’s premium offering, equipped with a Lithium-ion battery, braved challenging climatic conditions, difficult terrains and damaged roads during some stretches. The expedition, which was projected as a litmus test for Praise’s capacity to travel through such long distances, highlighted the magnificent aspects of Okinawa’s unparalleled engineering and hardware quality.

Okinawa’s performance parameters, at 55 - 75km/hr under different speed modes and a range of 170-200 km/charge was further complemented by the detachable battery that made it possible to fight for this height.

Okinawa’s Praise overcome long range challenge by the main USP of having the Lithium-ion battery for this journey. This new development of detachable Lithium-ion battery, was used as an easy option to just swap it with used battery & charge easily at any stopover at tea stalls, food points in hilly area & making this ride a hassle free ride.

Praise’s universally acknowledged telescopic suspension proved its excellence yet again, maintaining a smooth riding experience on uneven roads in different states of disrepair. The e-scooter’s ergonomics, engine power and load-taking capacity were tested comprehensively, with Praise succeeding on every front. Even after reaching Khardung La, one of the highest motorable passes in India, the scooter showed little signs of wear and tear. At the pass, the e-scooter and the riders were greeted by Managing Director and Chairperson of Okinawa, who were proud of the vehicle’s astonishing feat.

Commenting on the successful campaign, Jeetender Sharma, Managing Director, Okinawa Autotech said, “The ‘Praise De Himalaya’ campaign is the first and one-of-its-kind journey of an e-scooter to an extremely high-altitude zone where it is very difficult to attempt two-wheeler expeditions. While many apprehensions were raised on Praise’s ability to complete such a difficult journey, we at Okinawa were confident of our vehicle’s capabilities to complete the trip successfully. It is not every day that an e-vehicle comfortably completes a voyage of 1350 km and reaches a height of 18,380 ft. Through the ‘Praise De Himalaya’ campaign, we wanted to ‘Fight for Height ’i.e. the different psychological barriers and biases that stop a consumer from opting for an e-vehicle. We sincerely believe that Praise’s unique achievement will bring forth a transformation in the way that e-vehicles are viewed in the country."

Okinawa’s ‘Praise De Himalaya’ campaign has adequately showcased that its power-packed machines can stand up to any challenge, whether distance or kind of terrain or lack of charging infrastructure – by passing the most rigorous test of taking ‘Praise’ from the plains to one of the world’s highest motorable passes.

Okinawa has rejuvenated the entire e-vehicle industry in India by introducing latest technologies, efficient manufacturing processes and a strictly regulated product quality check to ensure complete service satisfaction of buyers. With its cutting-edge engineering and design innovations, Praise has been at the forefront of changing the identity of the e-scooter in India, making it a powerful, sustainable, environment friendly and affordable mobility option ready to rule the roads, whether in the plains or in the mountains!
