How to Assemble the NIU Electric Scooter?
The scooter comes almost fully assembled. Basically, you just need to install the handlebar.
The handlebar is loose and is connected only with a cable. So be careful not to damage the wiring.
Also, you can see two cables with loose ends. One comes from the display and the other comes from the handlebar post.
Before you can install the handlebar, connect those cables.
Then, push the cables inside of the handlebar post and attach the handlebar. Use the screws and a wrench to fix the handlebar in the correct position.
Now, the scooter is fully assembled. Connect the charger and check if the scooter turns on.
How to Install the Niu App?
The easiest way to download the app is using the QR code on the manual. Then follow the instructions in the app to make an account.
Basically, you just have to enter your e-mail, name, and password and that’s it. Nothing difficult.
How to Bind a Niu Kick Scooter with an App?
Although the app lets you choose the binding method, you can only use Bluetooth to bind the kick scooter. The other method works only for their seated electric scooters.
Also, you must turn on the scooter. Otherwise, the app and scooter won’t see each other.
Then follow the instructions in the app to complete the binding process.
- Short press the power button to confirm matching
- Give your scooter a name
- Follow the prompts on the app
- Press brake lever
- Press the accelerator
- Watch the short animated riding tutorial

Now the scooter is ready for the first ride. However, you probably notice that the scooter runs really slow at first.
Don’t worry about that! You have to ride for about 200 meters then you can increase the speed limit from the app.
