Reliable, high-quality transport is important for not just the riders but also the team when we need to get around quickly.

Being able to support the FHO teams 2023 racing season in both their top-tier championship chase as well as nurturing female talent in motorsport, all while driving down the net-emissions volume of UK motorcycle racing, is something which NIU takes great pride in being part of.”
