    Okinawa Autotech has launched the new Okhi-90 electric scooter in India. It is the company’s first launch for 2022 and also their biggest scooter yet.

    Okinawa Okhi-90: motor and battery

    Coming to the specifications, the Okhi-90 electric scooter is powered by a 3.8kW motor and the company says it can hit a stop speed of 90kph in Sport mode. In Eco mode, that figure drops to 60kph. The company also claims the scooter can accelerate from 0-90kph in 10sec.

    Powering the motor is a removable 3.6kWh, lithium-ion battery which offers a claimed range of 160km. This is much higher than the claimed range of the Ather 450X, TVS iQube and also the Bajaj Chetak. 

    While the battery is said to support fast charging, the company hasn’t released any information about the time taken to charge the battery. And for those wondering, Okinawa is offering a three-year warranty on the battery.

    Okinawa Okhi-90: design and features

    As far as styling is concerned, the Okhi-90 has a pretty conventional design, but what grabs your attention are the 16-inch alloy wheels. These are possibly the biggest wheels we’ve seen on a scooter currently on the market. Okinawa claims that these big wheels will help the scooter tackle typically bumpy Indian roads. The other talking point is the model’s massive 40-litre boot space.

    In terms of features, the scooter gets in-built navigation, digital speedometer, Bluetooth connectivity, keyless start, USB port for mobile charging, and call and notification alerts. Customers can also download the Okinawa Connect app that also allows them to immobilise the scooter in case of theft. 

    Okinawa Okhi-90: price and rivals

    The Okinawa Okhi-90 is priced at Rs 1.21 lakh (ex-showroom, post FAME-II subsidies). The price falls further after state subsidies are added – for example, the Okhi-90 is priced at Rs 1.03 lakh in Delhi and Maharashtra. 

    In terms of competition, the Okinawa goes up against the Ather 450X (Rs 1.38 lakh), Ola S1 Pro (Rs 1.10 lakh), Bajaj Chetak (Rs 1.15 lakh). All prices, ex-showroom, Delhi.
