An upgrade from the N1, Niu Innovation Lab delivers another exceptional two-wheeler but this time really adding an element of sex appeal to it. Ditching some of the old heavier materials for some more lightweight replacements, the M1 is a more lightweight, playful design with an agile character – while still carrying a lot of the same design language, fundamental to the Niu Scooter Collection.
With the vision of ensuring the M1 hit three crucial characteristics; high-tech, urban and slim design, the M1 has become a cut above the rest. There is not a chamfer or surface detail seen here that was not heavily debated. The M1 loves to play with light and steal your gaze across every inch of this beautiful bodywork.
What makes this two-wheeler stand out the most are the gorgeous lights both front and back. An unusual style, definitely something that makes this guy unique. Another attribute that makes the M1 a true breeze to use is the removable battery – weighing in at only 10kg, the battery pack is removed by use of the elegantly detailed handle and can be easily carried into the home or office to charge while sparking the curiosity of onlookers. With its predecessor the N1 having had considerable success in the Chinese market with over 100,000 units sold in its first year alone, there is no doubt the M1 will be an even bigger success both nationally and internationally.
The Niu M1 Electric Scooter is a winner of the Red Dot Design Concept Award for the year 2017.
