Speaking about the new launch, Jeetender Sharma, Founder and Managing Director of Okinawa Autotech, said,
“We are super excited to bring the new Lite to India. Currently, the market is cluttered with various slow-speed scooters. The all-new Okinawa Lite is ready to take the market by storm and break this clutter by offering state-of-the-art technology, along with the perfect balance of style and ease of use, for the youth of India. Its revolutionary design, style, and technology have been crafted keeping the young generation in mind, adapting to their changing tastes, and choices. The new Lite is also a perfect fit for women with its ease of driving and compact design.”
