CHINESE smart scooter giant NIU has announced an all new bike and a collaboration with McLaren Racing to bolster their line up.
Featuring the flagship UM model, the all new U-Series is said to stress design simplicity and an ultra-lightweight structure, with aviation-grade 6061 T6 aluminium helping chop its mass to a featherweight 39kg.
With riding pedals and fixed foot pedals which can be switched at the press of a button, the UM also boasts a keyless start function in all five of its versions.
NIU has also teamed up with McLaren to capture the classic color scheme of the performance firm’s customer racing programme, with added kicks like tyres, wheels and shock absorbers with competition heritage on their special edition model.
The NIU x McLaren team will be shipping a limited number of 299 units.
