Isn't the price really high for what they are offering? I can understand that this scoot offers a very good range (180-200 km on a single charge) but I fail to see anything else (distinguishing features) other than this.

Personally, I feel this is overpriced.

Could be due to the battery pack?

They claim to have a 2.9 KWh Li-ion battery pack compared to 2.4 KWh on the Ather 450, and 1.9 KWh on the Ather 430.

Sounds interesting because of detachable battery and claimed range. Feels overpriced still worth checking out. But no dealers in Mumbai yet !!

The range is really nice. The vehicle seems feature packed but the price seems a bit too much on the higher side. Okinawa scooters never did well in Odisha. It remains to be seen what'll be future of this one. The paint schemes will entice younger generation for sure.

I am looking to buy an electric scooter in Mumbai.
Wanted to understand if the i-Praise is a good buy overall? If not, what other options are worth exploring?
Any inputs will be deeply appreciated guys!

Ather 430? When did this happen? I thought there was only Ather 450 & 340 isn't it?

The top speed is 65kmph.

Also, it's got turbo mode that can provide extra boost for 20sec that helps accelerate quickly when needed and/or if you are already at 65kmph, you can hit 75kmph for a few seconds. Note: All this is hearsay. From the dealer and youtube video reviews.

But nice. Really nice. 160km range, 65kmph top speed is super awesome. The batteries are easier to remove than the ones in my Avan Xero+.

Downsides as I see:
- Price
- Absolutely no storage as the underseat storage is now occupied by the removable batteries. In my Xero+, the batteries are below the floor board.

Now I have 2 on my radar: this (Okinawa i praise) and the Revolt 400!

Hope the prices reduce after the budget.
