Ninebot is a manufacturer of electric scooters and motorcycles committed to “generating clean combustion” by means of a loudspeaker emulating the sound of a V8 or V12 engine. Placed on the frame of the skateboard, the company provides the vehicle with pleasant and sustainable acoustics.
The speaker system emulates the sounds of internal combustion engines, making it attractive for purchase as well as adhering to regulations, as EVs require a sound that alerts pedestrians and other drivers of their proximity, so the solution presented, beyond being attractive, will be of necessary use.
Ninebot Engine Speaker offers sounds of a V8 or V12 power unit, particularly known for its passage in Formula 1 and one of the golden eras of the categories. In addition, a third option has been included to recreate an electric motor amplified through 4 small horns of 8 watts each.
The speaker can be added on the handle of the scooter, increasing the feeling of traveling in a vehicle with internal combustion engine, but with the tranquility of not mistreating the ozone layer through carbon emissions. In addition, the company assures that the speaker is resistant to water and microparticles of dirt (dust).
The autonomy it offers is 23 hours with the maximum battery charge and it is available in the United States for $149.99. Any scooter can carry the speaker, including electric motorcycles manufactured by the company.
Ninebot is a privately held company based in Beijing, China. In 2015, Ninebot strategically merged with Segway, headquartered in Bedford, U.S. The combined company focuses on research and development, design, manufacturing, distribution and sales of short-distance transportation products. The combined brand has strategic locations in the United States, the Netherlands and Beijing.
