When it comes to e-Scooters in Nepal, Niu has acquired a customer base of its own. While it does stand true, Niu e-Scooters have all looked the same and haven’t changed that much in ages. But with the addition of Niu UQim Electric Moped to the portfolio, Eco Infinity Pvt. Ltd. brought something out of the blue.
With an NPR 1.45 Lakhs price tag, the moped definitely stands out as an affordable offering from the brand. So what does this new electric moped has to offer? Let’s ride through.
NIU UQim Overview:
Since it is a moped at its core, it looks like one. As mopeds have been the vehicles that blend day-to-day commuting with a minimalist approach, Niu hasn’t moved out of the way to make it any less.
The minimalist styling can be seen here on the NIU UQim, with a naked frame and bright colors adorning the look. There are LED DRLs and a short but unique rear section. Niu hasn’t covered up the steel frame here which helps keep the weight in check and even adds a stylistic flair to it. All of this put together, makes it stand out.
As for the color options, the moped is available in five color options: Blue, Orange, Yellow, White, and Black.
