MINI has presented an innovative urban vision that provides increased flexibility for individual mobility in congested areas; the MINI ‘citysurfer concept combines the riding properties of a kick scooter with an electric drive and thanks to its compact structure, it collapses and folds in half. weighing just 18 kilograms, the electrified two-wheeler has been developed for use on its own and in combination with other means of transportation – for example in a luggage compartment, or on buses and trains.
the auxiliary electric drive boasts a thumb-operated accelerator and gearless hub motor in the rear wheel – the electric motor power reaches a top speed of 25 km/h (15 mph) and isn’t activated until a minimum speed is reached from the rider’s own physical thrust. the power supply is connected via a lithium-ion battery permanently installed in the frame, which can be charged by a 12-volt automobile socket or household socket.
the MINI citysurfer concept integrates large wheels with pneumatic tires which makes it suitable for bumpy paths. its stable frame and height-adjustable handlebars complements three brake systems which operate independently of each other.
hydraulic disc brakes are situated at the front and rear wheels

trim parts and wheel covers at front and rear protect the two-wheeler from dirt and weathering
