Knowing this, NIU intends to gain a foothold in this market niche with NIU Kick Scooter.
Until now, the Asian manufacturer’s range had been made up of electric scooters and mopeds. However, like many other manufacturers in the sector, NIU has decided to jump into the electric scooter segment with its new launch: the NIU Kick Scooter.

With a single charge, the lower version can go to a range of 40 kilometers. For its part, the second increase this figure to 50 kilometers away.
The charging time required to complete 100% of the battery’s capacity is between 5.5 and 7.5 hours. Depending on the model chosen, the weight varies between 18.5 and 20 kilos.
In both cases, the structure of the scooter will have water resistance, the ability to be folded, 9.5-inch tubeless tires, regenerative braking, and Bluetooth connectivity with its corresponding application for the mobile phone.
