If the Japanese don't start getting serious about electric motos, the Chinese are going to steamroll them. When I started visiting China 6 years ago, there were electric scooters everywhere. They are serious about the future of motos, while the Japanese seem to be waffling. Never heard of Niu, but this article seems to imply that they're becoming popular: https://advrider.com/eicma-overview...utm_campaign=editorial&utm_content=11_22_2019 "With respect to BMW’s unquestioned expertise, please note that Chinese manufacturer Niu is the fastest-growing brand in just about all European markets it has entered. It showed three new models in Milan, as well as a maxi-scooter concept. Niu is not (yet) available in Australia, but it appears to be going great guns in the US from a small beginning, so its success is a clear lesson."
