About the Custom Design
To further give a personalized touch to the design, one can also get his or her initials painted on the e-scooter. One can pick from the array of themes like Crystal, Chameleon, Superhero etc. These custom hand-painted themes would cost an additional ₹15,000 over the retail price of the e-scooter. As for the colours, there are seven colours to choose from apart from the official palette. This is for the Lite scooter. The Praise Pro, Praise and iPraise+ scooters will have 11 colours on offer. The base Ridge+, R30, Ridge 30 and Ridge have got more than 14 colours on offer. From the look of it, the matte paint schemes look nice.
“Okinawa has been promoting the “Make in India” ideology in the sector. The new service providing custom hand painted designs on the e scooters is another step towards the same. One can have colour and design of their choice on their scooter. The service is provided by multiple brands across the globe. We are glad to introduce this offering to Indian audience,” said Mr. Jeetender Sharma- MD, Okinawa.
Okinawa is providing this service through their newly designed website. One can visit the Okinawa website and select the model and the theme. Once the scooter is ready, it is delivered through the local dealership. The company is known for back to back product launches depending on the customers’ demand.
