Autotech recently launched the Okinawa electric scooter primarily meant for the
rough and tough B2B segment. This electric bike can also be adapted for personal
use. We were curious whether this electric scooter could actually carry 200 kgs
load as claimed by the company and we put this to test.
from the several fancy features, this e-scooter is meant for a max speed of 25
kmph. The Okinawa Dual is offered with
two battery options, a 48V 28 Ah and 55Ah battery. We got the latter inside our
e-scooter. The 55Ah battery can give a
range of 130km plus. It takes 2 to 3 hours to fully charge the 28AH battery
while it takes 4 to 5 hours to fully charge the 55Ah battery. The former, when
fitted in the scooter, can carry a total load of 150 kg, while the latter can
carry up to 200 kg. The Okinawa Dual has
a 250W motor and has a length of 1770mm, a width of 800mm and a height of
1075mm. The wheelbase is 1290mm. It has a ground clearance of 150mm. The
vehicle comes with electronic assisted braking system with regenerative
braking. In front you have telescopic
suspension, while at the rear you have dual tube spring type hydraulic
THE LOAD TEST: First, we made four
people sit on it, all collectively weighing 260 kgs. The e-scooter rode with
considerable ease. The rider and the three people went for a spin around and
came back smiling. We then added one more person to the e-scooter and the total
weight climbed up to 319kg. The e-scooter went about its journey with great
zeal. There was no strain whatever on the motor.
was time to increase the load. But we were running out of seating space. But we
managed to squeeze in one more person and the weight climbed up to a total of
372kgs. The e-scooter showed no stress or strain. It rode with great energy. We
wanted to load more weight but we had run out of seating space.
VERDICT: The Okinawa Dual is a very capable
electric scooter and this test proves that it can truly carry a lot of load
without any hassle.
DISCLAIMER: Seating six people on the
electric scooter was only for the purpose of demonstration and this should not
be attempted by anyone at home or outside. This can be dangerous.
