New Delhi: Electric two-wheeler maker Okinawa Autotech plans to introduce e-bike in a couple of months as part of its plans to scale up operations in the country.

The company, which today launched its second electric scooter Praise priced at Rs 59,889, has set a target of selling 50,000 units in the next fiscal.
