Rieju, a small family owned an operated OEM with over 80 years of history, has launched an electric scooter concept, together with the University of Barcelona. The Mius, which will be presented formally, along with detailed technical specifications and price at next month's EICMA, represents a bold move by the company, better known for its performance based youth motorcycles, such as the RS2 and extreme motocrossers. A press release states that power comes from a German made lithium-ion pack, and in a break from others, a chassis mounted brushless DC motor, also sourced from Germany.
Rieju entered the scooter market for the first time in 2007, with Chinese imported budget products: Toreo 50 and 125. Currently, the company does not have a significant market presence in that sector.
