NIU NQi-Series (former NIU N-Series) Features:
Impossibly Light. Extended Range Battery.
The NIU NQi-Series (former NIU N-Series) is using state of the art lithium-ion battery packs by Panasonic with a two-year guarantee. Weighing in at only 10kg (22lbs.), you can easily carry the NIU battery for in-home/office re-charging. The 29Ah battery pack is fully re-charged in six hours, providing an 50-70km range, or about four typical days of urban commuting.
- 29Ah – Compact Capacity
- 10kg – Impossibly Light
- 6hrs Recharging Time
- 2yr Guarantee
Re-inventing the future of urban exploration requires a deep understanding of lithium-ion technology. We have tapped into the tried and tested 18650 series of lithium-ion batteries and adapted the technology to the needs of two-wheeled urban transportation – lightweight, efficient, and dependable.
We have taken 170 battery cells and connected them in parallel to create a robust 29Ah core battery pack. Furthermore, we have adopted PTC technology which compartmentalizes each cell, so if one cell goes awry it doesn’t compromise the performance of the entire battery pack.
Our NIU 2 Year Guarantee also covers the battery pack.
- 5x More Efficient
- 600 Recharging Cycles
A convenient exploration vehicle must also be convenient to recharge. In the time it takes you to eat a single meal, your NIU N-Series gains a range of 20km. A light night of sleep, and your battery is fully recharged, providing you a full four days of riding, or about 50-70km.
BOSCH + FOC Power Train System
German Precision, Optimized
We teamed up with BOSCH to build an ultra efficient and smart motor to bring e-scooters into the future. At the center of this collaboration is the NIU developed “Field-Oriented Control” system, that we customized for the 1500W BOSCH motor to optimize power consumption. We coupled the FOC optimized motor with an EBS dual brake system to recycle power back into the system. When you’re braking, you’re re-charging.
BOSCH + FOC Power Train System
Extending the ride and performance
In real-time, the FOC is monitoring the overall electricity demand on the system so that the BOSCH motor performs at a peak level while efficiently using all resources available.
To enhance overall vehicle performance, the Electric Brake System (EBS) and FOC optimize power conservation and output, effectively recycling power during certain periods of braking and limiting power output during select periods of acceleration.
We have been able to reduce braking distances by up to 60% and recycle 6% of the battery capacity back into the system through our intelligent braking system.
Performance and power at the core
BOSCH x NIU COLLABORATION
We have collaborated with BOSCH to develop the N-Series motor. With 65 Nm of torque at its disposal, the N-Series provides the “get-up-and-go” you need to feel safe on a car dominated road. Couple this with a 1500W power output to easily reach a top cruising speed of 45km/h.
- 120Nm Maximum Torque
- 2400W Maximum Power
10% Savings on Energy Consumption
Higher Performance, Less Energy
BOSCH’s state-of-the-art motor technology is a key component in optimizing energy efficiency by reducing motor abrasion and power wastage that can be found in a typical motor. Compared to typical motors under the same driving conditions, the N-Series motor is at least 10% more efficient.
Braking distance reduced by more than 50%
Dual Hydralic Disc Brakes
The NIU NQi-Series brakes are engineered from a high-manganese steel composite, lubricated with BOSCH brake fluid, and equipped with a threaded brake line to extend the life of the entire system.
The Intelligence behind the braking.
Electronic Braking System (EBS)
Not only does the EBS make your ride more safe, it also recycles energy back into the system. On average the EBS provides an additional 6% of battery power, or 4km of riding range.
Simple & Elegant
Our design philosophy is that less is more. Our final output is the culmination of a vision that starts with our R&D to develop a structurally stable and powerful vehicle while remaining elegantly simple in design.
Design & Craftsmanship
Craftsmanship lies at the heart of our industrial design. We believe that our technological innovations are only brought to life when incredible attention is paid to the engineering that lies under the skin of the NQi-Series (former N-Series).
We set out to build a modern scooter while paying respect to the origins of scooter design – a scooter built to perform while maintaining a simple aesthetic.
For nearly one year we tested materials, forms, and the latest technologies to create the architecture that became the base of the N-Series. At the heart of our design goals rests the desire to create a comfortable riding experience while maintaining a simple design.
An aesthetic and a function. Cannot have one without the other.
When you begin to look closely at the N-Series you can see a symmetry and a repetition of shape and form across a variety of elements in the scooter – from the saddle mounts, to the passenger foot rests, to the body panels, everything works in unison.
LCD Smart Dashboard
The NIU Smart Dash provides basic diagnostics in a quick-view form so a rider can see at a glance their speed, remaining battery capacity and their real-time amperage (how much strain they are putting on the battery).
Optimized NIU N-Series Seat Storage
Under the seat you will find 18.9 litres of storage capacity, making it easy to stow your helmet, small bags, and basic items for when you are on the go.
A Natural and Comfortable Riding Experience
Pure ergonomics at the center of design
740mm From Road to Seat Surface
When selecting the seat height we considered a number of factors, especially rider comfort when “idling” while waiting at a traffic light. At 740mm above the road surface riders feel safe while zipping by other vehicles, and comfortable to place their foot on the ground while waiting for the light to turn green.
At 1285mm the N-Series wheelbase creates a perfect balance between comfort and maneuverability for both a single and double rider experience.
A mode for every driving condition
Mode 1: Energy saving to extend driving range
Mode 2: Optimized for speed and driving range
Mode 3: For drivers who are seeking speed over range
World-Class Frame Manufacturing
We have collaborated with the same world-class supplier that builds frames for many leading international motorcycle brands. Our welding process utilizes a fully robotic arm to ensure the highest level of consistency for each and every frame in our NIU N-Series.
Meticulous Material Selection
The N-Series frame utilizes an ultra high-strength alloy steel that is the foundation for the entire vehicle.
High-Strength Alloy Steel
Beyond the robotic-arm assisted welding, the N-Series frame and chasis undergo a number of processes to increase strength and long term durability. We use a painting technology known as electrophoresis that ensures consistency while simultaneously creating an additional layer between the steel-alloy and external elements. The surface goes through an additional process known as phosphating and electrostatic spraying that builds the final barrier between the frame and corrosive elements.
A Titanium Core
We use a Titanium-alloy to build our swing-arm. Titanium has allowed us to increase the tensile and twisting strength by nearly 50% while simultaneously reducing the N-Series curb weight.
Front/Rear dual hydraulic shock absorbers
We have equipped the NIU N-Series with front and rear dual hydraulic shock-absorbers.
Combine this with our Aluminum-Titanium swing arm, and we have engineered a riding experience that is pleasant no matter what the road throws at you.
Engineered for urban streets
When we designed the suspension and shock absorbers we wanted to keep the ultimate riding experience of the open-road while paying close attention to the demands of rough urban streets. We utilize a pre-compression technology that reduces the vibrations of the road while still allowing the rider to feel firmly connected to the street below the wheels.
Tiny Details. World-Class Suppliers.
Insane attention to detail
The N-Series’ patented body design employs over 200 sets of molds and two years of development.
Layers of Protection
Beautiful on day one and day one thousand
The UV resistant painting process is essential to keeping your N-Series looking as good as the day you bought it.
Layers and layers of paint, polish, primer, gloss, and a finishing coat give the final glean that lasts far beyond the first moment you ride the N-Series down the street.
Performance and style
We employ a unique tread design that adds a layer of safety when driving on either wet or dry roadways. The central and radial channels enable a naturally straighter ride while simultaneously helping to deflect and push water away from the tires during heavy rains.
A Barrier to Water and Dust
All of the onboard components susceptible to water and dust have been fitted with IP65* grade protective gear. Components like the battery pack, motor controller, power converter, head lamp, dash board, and many others have been equipped with protectants so you can be certain that you are safe while on the road. Even our electronic brakes are performance rated up to 230mm of water.
The NIU Icon
All LED lamps
The iconic NIU NQi-Series (former N-Series) headlamp is more than just a statement. The all-new unibody lamp integrates a daytime running light and standard light that takes advantage of the unique 360 degree CCFL structure combined with our LED “bead” lamps, providing an ultra-wide arc of light for improved vision and safety at night.
Additionally, we have employed a TechnoLED lamp structure that seamlessly integrates a rear light, turning indicators, brake light, and license plate lamp. The structure is both unique to NIU, and more importantly provides added visibility for night driving.
NIU N Series Real-Time Intelligence
GPS/ Anti-Theft / Remote Tracking / Scooter Diagnostics / Help Center…
The NIU APP provides real-time visibility on the status of your N-Series. Your scooter may be out of sight, but you can have peace of mind that it’s safe with our anti-theft tracking feature. You can also check your battery life, track your recent rides, get instant updates with any scooter malfunctions, locate the nearest service station, and access the user manual with a few swipes of the app…and this is just the beginning.
