NIU RQi Price in Nepal and Availability

NIU RQi price in Nepal has not been disclosed as it is yet to launch. While considering its price in the international market, we can estimate the price to sit around Rs. 10 Lakhs to Rs. 13 Lakhs.

A large chunk of the Nepali market prefers the bikes in the price range of Rs. 3 Lakhs to Rs. 7 Lakhs. Having said this, it should be interesting to see how NIU Nepal keeps the price of the RQi. Nonetheless, RQi seems to be targeting the premium segment.

There are plenty of options for electric bikes in Nepal like the Super Soco TC Max, Horwin CR6, and Evoke Urban Classic.

NIU RQi is likely to rival the Evoke Urban Classic.

Evoke Urban Classic is the premium flagship electric bike in Nepal. It claims an impressive range of 250 Km with a powerful 25kW electric motor and a larger 10.04 kWh battery.

NIU RQi outperforms all with a massive peak torque of 450 Nm. But with a 7.5 kW electric motor and 5.184 kWh battery, the price of RQi must sit below the price of Evoke Urban Classic to give it good competition.
