As the electric scooter market booms, Razer shifts gears with the NIU X Razer SQi Edition
This partnership brings us an absolutely stunning collaboration – the limited edition NIU X Razer SQi Edition electric scooter.
Unfortunately, the Razer NIU X is currently only available in China, but as mentioned in the Tweet, the demand for this e-scooter was “overwhelming”, with it selling out in just 2 seconds!
What is the NIU X Razer SQi Edition Electric Scooter?
At its essence, the NIU X Razer SQI Edition is an electric-powered smart scooter, with a top speed of 25 km/h.
The e-scooter weighs over 50 kg and is ideal for daily commuting, with a range of around 65 km.
Design and specifications of the NIU X Razer SQi Edition electric scooter
Of course, this “electric scooter” looks more like an electric motorcycle, a design choice we love.
The entire bike gets the Razer Green treatment, with the center battery compartment/ID plate, front fender, center axle, and rear shock all accented in this bright green.
The Razer NIU X Chassis is crafted from aerospace-grade magnesium alloy with no solder joints. This choice of material is much lighter than steel, yet still strong.
As well as being better for the environment for the end user, the electric scooter is made with low carbon materials which means less emissions.
The NIU X Razer SQi Edition electric scooter tires are 17 inches, with magnesium alloy wheels.
The Razer scooter is fitted with dual disc brakes, with the front brake being 220mm and the rear being 180mm.
The NIU X Razer electric scooter only takes 6 hours to fully charge its battery.

The NIU X Razer SQi Edition is a smart scooter
You can use Siri to control the NIU X Razer SQi, which works seamlessly with apps, WeChat, Bluetooth, and NFC.

The app will also tell you how much battery/distance is left in the “tank”, which means you won’t get stuck.
