Electric scooters have become more and more popular, especially in big cities like San Francisco. While my first experiences riding electric scooters were all on apps like Bird and Lime, I recently bought my own electric scooter.
After doing some research, I decided the best electric scooter for my needs is the Niu KQI2 Pro. Niu is actually more famous for being an electric car company than making electric scooters, but there is some overlap between the two in terms of technology and parts.
When I was buying an electric scooter, I was looking for something in the $500-600 range mostly (which is on the cheaper side). I didn’t need a super large battery, as I only plan to ride my scooter a couple of miles a day. Finally, while I wanted a decently fast scooter, anything above 15 mph was fine for me. The Niu KQI2 pro fit all of my criteria, as it was $500 with a Labor Day sale ($600 normally), has a range of 25 miles, and goes at a top speed of 17 mph. Additionally, all of the reviews I read said that the KQI2 Pro is the most comfortable ride, especially given its price point. It has really high quality tires that help to absorb much of the ride.
While there are faster scooters with better range, I think the KQI2 Pro has been a good choice for me. If you are looking for more expensive electric scooters though, Niu also has some higher quality options, or you can take a look at other brands.
Niu KQI2 Pro Recommendation Rating: 5
1: Something worth checking out if you have time
2: Something that is a hit for some people, but not a must for everyone
3: Something worth prioritizing if interested
4: Something worth making time to check out
5: An absolute home run, worth going out of your way for
This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.
NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.
I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
