Guys, get ready to ditch the Chinese motorcycles, as the new master of streets hits the ground.

Last April, Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi, participated in an $80 million project initiated by scooter-maker Ninebot. The corporate union worked tirelessly for a year, and what do we get for it? The “Ninebot Mini”.

The Ninebot Mini hoverboard is a two-wheel, self-balancing scooter that can travel for almost 25km between charges. Priced at around Rs. 32,000 this hip-for-Pakistan mean machine is all geared up to come in and replace the more cumbersome, Segway PT. The little beauty weighs just 13 kg and can support a weight of up to 85 kg. Given its extremely portable design, the Chinese scooter can easily fit into a rickshaw or car boot. It also features Xiaomi’s smartphone app, which lets riders remotely control the mini, view the speedometer, check battery status and set an alarm if the scooter gets snatched.

Available in black and white, the Ninebot Mini will go on sale November 3.
