NIU UQim Overview
NIU UQim is launched with a new design that follows the NIU brand’s regular design principles while reducing its body elements. The scooter is designed for a Spontaneous lifestyle and is equipped with a carefully tuned FOC vector controller with a motor developed by the company itself. The scooters have a naked frame and different color pops.
Features and Design
The Design of the NIU UQim is similar to the older scooters from NIU, which follow the same design pattern providing convenience and style. With a minimalistic design, the looks are appealing to look at. The naked frame of the scooter is integrated into the exterior to show off the aesthetic and unlimited options available.
NIU UQ-series is a work of art, not just a simple 2-wheeled scooter but urban mobility, your faithful travel partner, and more than just a scooter. Moreover, there are a lot of color options available for you to choose from.
