Top 10 Reasons why you should buy NIU sit down scooter – NQi GTS Review

by Nathan Schaumann

Jimmy and I had a Freshly Charged vacation in Oahu and decided to rent NIU electric scooters in Waikiki from Hawaiian Style Rentals and Sales. We took the eMoped scooters to Diamondhead Volcano, through the canopies of Tantulus Overlook, and along the coast of Waikiki. The scooters were perfect for the crazy traffic of Waikiki and I could see myself renting one for a week next time I’m on the island.

In this review, I will tell you the top 10 reasons you should buy a NIU electric scooter.

Low Maintenance

Unlike conventional gasoline-powered scooters, NIU sit-down scooters run on electric power, which translates into significantly lower maintenance costs. With fewer moving parts and no need for frequent oil changes, these scooters save you money and time in the long run. Routine maintenance is hassle-free, making them an ideal choice for those seeking a low-cost and convenient means of transportation.

Ease of Parking in Major Metropolitan Cities

Navigating through congested streets and finding parking spots can be a nightmare in crowded cities. However, with a NIU sit-down scooter, you can easily maneuver through traffic and park effortlessly in tight spaces. Its compact design and lightweight nature enable riders to access locations that larger vehicles simply cannot reach, helping you bypass traffic jams and arrive at your destination promptly.

We were able to fit 6 NIU scooters in one parking space and you can park them on sidewalks.

Getting Fresh Air

Riding a NIU sit-down scooter allows you to enjoy the refreshing sensation of the open air while commuting. Unlike being confined within the closed confines of a car or public transport, scooting lets you connect with your surroundings and embrace the outdoors. This experience not only uplifts your mood but also contributes to a healthier and more mindful lifestyle.

No Motorcycle License Needed in Most States

In many states, NIU sit-down scooters fall under the category of low-speed electric bicycles, meaning riders typically don’t require a specialized motorcycle license to operate them. This exemption simplifies the process of getting on the road, allowing more people to access the convenience of electric scooters without facing bureaucratic hurdles.

Easily Swappable Batteries

One of the unique features of NIU sit-down scooters is their swappable battery system. Rather than waiting for hours to recharge, you can quickly exchange a depleted battery with a fully charged one at a NIU battery swapping station. This innovative technology eliminates range anxiety, making longer trips and daily commuting more feasible and enjoyable.

Technology Packed

NIU scooters are at the forefront of technological innovation. Equipped with smart connectivity features, these scooters offer a user-friendly mobile app that provides real-time information on battery status, GPS tracking, and anti-theft alerts. The app also allows riders to customize their riding experience and receive maintenance notifications, ensuring an optimal and safe journey.

Key fobs for added security and the ability to use your phone to unlock the brand new NQi GTS is a sleek feature.

Ready to Carry an Additional Passenger

NIU sit-down scooters are designed with the capacity to carry an additional passenger, making them a practical option for sharing rides with friends or family. The presence of a comfortable and spacious seating arrangement ensures a smooth and enjoyable ride for both the rider and the passenger.

Beautiful Aesthetics

Beyond their practicality, NIU scooters boast elegant and modern aesthetics. Sleek designs and eye-catching color options make them a stylish statement on the road. Whether you’re zipping through the city or parked at a café, the visual appeal of a NIU scooter is sure to turn heads and make you proud of your transportation choice.

Service centers across the country

With service centers across the country and in many countries, you won’t have to worry about servicing your scooter. You can’t even buy the sit down scooters direct to consumer, you have to pick them up from a local dealership.

Runs on Electric

Lastly, but perhaps most importantly, NIU sit-down scooters are powered by electricity, contributing to a greener and cleaner environment. By choosing electric transportation, you’re actively reducing your carbon footprint and playing a part in combating climate change.


Investing in a NIU sit-down scooter is a wise decision that offers a multitude of benefits. From low maintenance costs to seamless parking in urban centers, the convenience, efficiency, and eco-friendliness of these scooters make them an excellent option for daily commuting.

The combination of advanced technology, swappable batteries, and no requirement for a motorcycle license further enhances their appeal. Embrace the future of urban transportation and experience the joy of riding an NIU sit-down scooter today.
