electric moped-manufacturer niu Over the years it has expanded into a wide range of two-wheeled electric vehicles including new e-bikes and e-scooter models. Now the company is finally launching its much awaited BQi-C3 Pro electric cycle.
We are following the BQi-C3 Pro over a year now As the design progressed through prototype to production.
Well, today is the day, friends! E-bike fans can finally order the new-looking electric bike that comes with Sticker price of $1,999.
The Class 3 e-bike has a 750-watt peak-rated rear motor and two riding modes of throttle or pedal-assist (or a third if you count muscle power alone). The BQi-C3 Pro can hit speeds of up to 28 mph (45 km/h), and the dual batteries mean it can actually maintain those speeds for well over a few miles.
The pair of 460Wh batteries provide 920Wh of capacity and a combined range of 62 miles (100 km), which should be more than enough for most riders.
A Gates carbon drive setup replaces a chain with a carbon fiber-reinforced belt to transfer pedal power to the rear wheel. This helps reduce maintenance and provides a smooth pedaling experience.
The bike is outfitted with NIU’s signature halo headlight, which is the same styling that you will find on most of the company. Electric scooters and mopeds. This is what I got. got on NIU NQI GTS Scooter. A tail light and brake light have also been installed below the frame-integrated rear rack.

The bike also comes with puncture-resistant tires that include 1.5mm Kevlar ARAMID fiber lining.
Fenders are included standard to help keep riders dry, and the bike’s IP45 waterproof rating ensures that getting caught in the rain won’t hurt you any worse than with some wet clothes. The motor has a high waterproof rating at IP65, and the batteries are even more protected with an IP67 rating.
The handlebar-mounted TFT color display offers battery and ride stats, riding mode readout, trip time, distance travel and more.
The NIU BQi-C3 Pro is a single-speed electric bike with a 50t front pulley and 22t rear pulley. The gear ratio isn’t particularly high, so it’ll be interesting to see what it’s like to pedal at higher speeds.
The 27.5″ tires are 2.4″ wide, striking a balance between efficient urban riding, while maintaining ample air volume for a more comfortable ride than most. Electric road bike.
The 70.5 lb (32 kg) e-bike is rated for a maximum payload of 287 lb (130 kg), with the rear rack alone rated for a 66 lb (30 kg) load.
