GULLY BOY
Okinawa, the makers of Praise and Ridge electric scooters came into our world out of nowhere and became a significant player in the electric two wheeler segment.

After some initial hiccups, the company made inroads into the electric vehicle space. They have now launched the Lite electric scooter that scores big on the looks front.

The moment I set my eyes upon the Lite electric scooter, I knew they had a winner in hands. Among the several electric scooters available in the country today, this one stands out as an extreme good looker. But how is it as an overall package? For that I had to take a closer look at the vehicle and get to know as much as possible about it. These are my first impressions.

From the looks of it, this one is the ideal “Gully Boy”. It’s an electric two-wheeler to complete all your short distance chores, like dropping your kid to the nearby school, buying your grocery, getting into a congested marketplace to buy your home stuff, etc. Since it claims to have a top speed of 25kmph, though it did move beyond 30kmph when even two people were sitting on it, this e-scooter does not require a license to ride, no registration and it is not mandatory to wear a helmet while riding this. But we do recommend that you wear a helmet if you are taking it on the streets for a ride.

EXTERIORS

The Lite looks impressive and is definitely a crowd puller. “Cute” is the first word that comes to your mind when you see this e-scooter for the first time. The front looks neat and stylish with its LED projector lamp and DRLs while at the rear we have LED with defogger lights. The speedometer looks modern but the dark tinge to it makes it a bit difficult to read the digital figures during the day. It has stylish aluminium alloy wheels with disc brakes in front and drum at the rear. The e-scooter comes with tubeless tyres.
