NIU, the worldwide number one smart e-scooter, has just launched its first flagship store in Malaysia.
NIU is an innovative and fast growing e-scooter brand from Shanghai that is responding to the worldwide growth of e-mobility. The decision to open its flagship store in Penang is due to NIU’s conviction that Malaysia will play a key role in the South East Asia’s future of e-scooters
The NIU store is located at Plaza Gurney 170-G-76, Gurney Drive, 10250 Georgetown, Penang.
The Niu N-Series E-Scooter
The NIU N-Series is an electric scooter which is powered by BOSCH electric engine using state of the art lithium-ion battery packs by Panasonic that comes with a two-year guarantee. Its battery 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 recharged in six hours, providing a 50-70km range, or about four typical days of urban commuting.
Niu N-series Framework
The N-Series frame utilizes high-strength alloy steel that is the foundation for the entire vehicle. The N-Series frame and chassis undergo a number of processes to increase strength and long term durability. NIU uses a painting method known as electrophoresis that ensures consistency 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. NIU also use Titanium-alloy to build the swing-arm. Titanium has allowed us to increase the tensile and twisting strength by nearly 50% at the same time reducing its curb weight.
Shock Absorbers Engineered for Urban Roads
NIU is equipped with suspension and shock absorbers that adapt to the condition of the urban streets. NIU utilize a pre-compression technology that reduces the vibrations of the road while still allowing the rider to feel firmly control the vehicle.
BOSCH + Field Oriented Control (FOC) Power Train System
NIU has collaborated with BOSCH to develop the N-Series motor. With 65 Nm of torque at its disposal, the N-Series provides the safe feeling on a car-dominated road. With a 1500W output, it easily reaches a top cruising speed of 45km/h. 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.
The NIU FOC (Field Oriented Control) system was built in collaboration with BOSCH to create a state-of-the-art power train. Striking a fine balance between performance and energy consumption, the FOC is the key in balancing range and speed. You can think of the FOC as the brain controlling the motor in real-time. It recognizes your riding conditions and instantly reacts on the motor for optimal performance. The FOC measures scooter diagnostics and then decide how to respond to your driving inputs.
The Niu Battery Pack
The NIU Battery pack utilizes Panasonic lithium-ion battery cells. We’ve been able to pack 29Ah of storage into a battery that weighs just 10kg (22lbs.). At the heart of the N-Series is an automobile inspired Battery Management System (BMS) that regulates power consumption and ensures your safety. Our NIU 2 Year Guarantee also covers the battery pack. The NIU Battery Pack harnesses 170 cells of lithium-ion technology. This is all powered by the NIU BMS (Battery Management System) that connects each cell in parallel to create a robust 29aH core battery pack. NIU BMS ensures real-time monitoring of voltage, current, and temperature of the battery all at the same time. The battery pack comes with a 2 years warranty
Niu Braking System
The NIU 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.
It also equips with Electric Braking System (EBS). Not only does the EBS make your ride 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.
All LED Lamps
The all-new unibody lamp integrates a daytime running light (DRL) and standard light that takes advantage of the unique 360 degree cold cathode fluorescent lamp (CCFL) structure combined with our LED “bead” lamps, providing an ultra-wide arc of light for improved vision and safety at night.
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).
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.
N-Series + NIU Cloud + Mobile Phone Application
The N-Series has an on-board computer that constantly communicates with Niu Cloud so you can receive real-time data on your mobile phone like anti-theft alerts, daily riding habits, diagnostics, power supply, and navigation to the nearest service station.
With built-in GPS tracking, all NIU scooters will immediately prompt NIU Cloud when an unauthorized movement of the bike occurs, instantaneously alerting the owner of the theft and providing constant location updates.
The NIU Cloud is always connected and collecting useful data on every ride. Riders can also easily access service manual for any issues occurred.
