Ultra convenient

For many people, electric vehicles can be off-putting. This can be due to a lack of charging points and with electric cars costing a minimum of 25k it’s just not feasible for most. Fortunately, the batteries in NIU scooters are fully removable and can be charged using a normal socket inside your home.

A full charge takes between five and 8 hours depending on the model, so perfect for charging overnight.
This is especially useful for those living in flats, where installing a home charging point just isn’t possible.NIU has also designed an intelligent app for scooter owners, which means it’s GPS tracked at all times, and is connected to motion sensors which will alert you if your vehicle is stolen or damaged. The app also allows users to upgrade the scooter’s software without the inconvenience of taking it to a local dealer.

With urban mobility in mind, it really doesn’t get more convenient than mopeds. Their sleek and small design means that they can easily navigate narrow streets, and they are perfect for anyone living and working in the city centre. With a maximum speed of between 28-43mph depending on the model, they are ideal for inner-city journeys.

You got questions?

We have answers.

Do electric mopeds require maintenance

Yes, but electric mopeds generally require a lot less maintenance than petrol-powered mopeds. Here are a few reasons why:

  1. No oil changes: Electric mopeds don't have an engine that requires oil changes, so you don't have to worry about changing the oil or oil filter.
  2. Fewer moving parts: Electric mopeds have fewer moving parts than petrol-powered mopeds, which means there are fewer components that can break down or wear out.
  3. Lower maintenance costs: Because electric mopeds have fewer parts that require maintenance, the overall cost of maintenance is a lot lower than for petrol-powered mopeds.
  4. Regenerative braking: NIU electric mopeds has a regenerative braking system that help to recharge the battery while slowing down or stopping. This can reduce wear and tear on the brakes and extend their lifespan.

While electric mopeds do require some maintenance, such as tyre changes, brake pad replacements, and battery maintenance, the overall maintenance requirements are generally less than for petrol-powered mopeds which means you can enjoy lower maintenance costs and greater peace of mind.

Can I ride an electric moped in the rain?

Yes, electric mopeds can be ridden in the rain, but like any vehicle, it's important to take certain precautions to ensure safety. Here are some tips for riding a moped in the rain:
