NIU, a world leader in electric motor scooter
NIU expands its range of electric motor scooters for 2019 with the NIU NGT, thanks to which the well-known Asian brand intends to conquer the European market.
“Niu is a company created in September 2014 to meet the mobility needs and regulations in the Chinese cities, where traffic jams are legion and the level of pollution very high. As a result, electric is mandatory in China, making it the largest electric scooter market in the world. “
The NIU NGT is a two-seat scooter connected via mobile application and fully electric, consisting of a first PANASONIC Lithium-Ion battery pack housed under the saddle and a second block located in the tray. Each battery weighs about 11 kg.
A simple, efficient and secure recharge
The manufacturer announces a fast recharge of 3:30 per battery, very convenient and relatively fast for this autonomy. The batteries are easy to extract and handle, which gives the user the flexibility to charge them at home or in the office, in short! Lightness and ease, are synonymous with NIU NGT. Note that the parallel charge of the batteries is possible with a Y.
NIU NGT performance
The NIU NGT is equipped with an electric motor of the German brand BOSCH, developing 3000W of nominal power and propelling the scooter at a maximum speed of 70km / h. The acceleration is very strong: 0 to 50 km / h in less than 5 sec!
A very long autonomy and three driving modes
The electric scooter is equipped with an intelligent electronic brake system (EBS) that recharges the batteries during braking.
On the other hand, the NGT offers you 3 driving modes:
• Energy saving mode to reduce consumption and extend battery life.

The scooter is approved to accommodate obviously a driver and his passenger, hence the presence of retractable passenger footpegs.
