The range will include a scooter and a high-end performance motorcycle and will be equipped with the connectivity systems. The bikes would go into production early next year at the second facility of Okinawa in Rajasthan.

Okinawa will provide the local development of the future product and its production line. Tacita will provide the powertrain, controller, motor, battery packs and BMS.

The design will be developed in Italy at the Tacita headquarters. Road tests will be carried out both in India and Italy in all weather conditions. Part of the tests should include an inaugural voyage from Okinawa headquarters in India to the Tacita headquarters in Italy.

We envisage the collaboration to create a synergy effect that will accelerate our commitment to electric mobility.

Tacita will help us in creating a marketplace that matches the demand for futuristic technology and products. Their advanced & futuristic technology will also further broaden and strengthen our existing product range.”

Pierpaolo Rigo, Managing Director, Tacita, mentioned, “We are delighted to partner with a leading e-scooter manufacturer in India. The leadership team of Okinawa Autotech has a rich on-ground experience and knowledge about the market, competition, and customer behaviour. We are happy to provide our expertise in the premium EV bike segment to launch a top-end line of bikes.
