NIU Gova G5 flaunts an integral streamlined design combined with high-quality carbon structural steel. At the front, the scooter comes with H-shaped Matrix headlights which include LED DRL and side LED indicators. The styling on the new NIU Gova G5 is similar to the one seen in the previously launched Gova 03. However, Gova G5 has been presented bulkier than the former model.
The Gova series electric scooter is also curvier in nature than the rest of the NIU scooters, hence boasting a sleek unibody styling. The minimalistic styling of the scooter can be visually pleasing to the riders. The scooter also offers a unique rear section. The rear features a wrap-around LED rear lamp, a large grab bar and also offers adequate under-seat storage.
NIU Gova G5 is powered by a 3900W Bosch motor. The scooter features a 72V45Ah 4th-generation NIU Energy lithium battery. It can provide a range of up to 100 km on a full charge while taking around six to seven hours to get fully charged. The scooter can also reach a top speed of up to 85kmph.
Like Gova 03, the new Gova G5 also features two driving modes: energy-saving T-tour mode and dynamic S-sport mode to toggle between according to the road conditions. This electric scooter can also be connected to your smartphone via the NIU app.
The NIU app provides users with comprehensive vehicle services like remaining battery level and range estimate, GPS positioning, security alert, past routes and riding statistics. The app also offers vehicle management, personal and binding information management to the riders.
Brakes, tyres and suspension
NIU Gova G5 comes with a combi braking system (CBS) with hydraulic disc brakes on both sides of the wheel. This is the most common braking system seen on an electric two-wheeler these days. The electronic braking system (EBS) also provides regenerative power that intelligently puts the power back into the system when braking.
The scooter has 14-inch tubeless tyres at both the front and the rear. The front tyre measures at 90/90-14 while the rear tyre measures at 120/70-14.
As per the suspension on the scooter, there is hydraulic damping on the front and the rear end gets a spring air damping for absorbing bumps and providing comfortability to the riders on rough terrain.
