New Segway-Ninebot range of electric scooters offer improved safety and performance
Segway-Ninebot has introduced a line-up of exciting new electric scooters which boast a number of new features designed to offer a safe and fun ride.
The company also unveiled a limited edition Gokart PRO Lamborghini.
Segway-Ninebot is the leading brand of micro-mobility technology in Australia with the range of KickScooters that can cover commutes between 2km and 50km.
Globally, customers have ridden more than 8.7 billion kilometres on Segway-Ninebot scooters and reduced carbon emissions by 419 million kilograms.
“Today marks an exciting new chapter for Segway-Ninebot as we launch our latest line of products,” Jade Tang, Head of Marketing, Segway-Ninebot said.
“We’re thrilled to introduce innovative solutions that will make commuting easier and more enjoyable.
“Our team has put in countless hours of hard work and dedication to ensure that these products offer top-notch quality and performance.
“We can’t wait to see the positive impact they will have on people’s daily lives.”
Tech Guide was on the Gold Coast for the launch of the new models which are divided into three ranges – MAXG2, F2 Series and E2 Series.
MAXG2 – $1,699
The Segway-Ninebot MAXG2 is a sleek KickScooter with a range of up to 70km on a single charge thanks to the company’s proprietary RideyLONG technology.
The rear-wheel drive scooter has a more efficient motor and more efficient tyres to maximise range.
The MAXG2 is powerful enough to handle a 22-degree incline and has a max speed of 25km/h.
Also onboard is a double suspension system – single spring suspension on the front wheel and double on the rear wheel to really smooth out your ride.
Another new feature is the 10-inch self-sealing tyres which can handle a puncture up to 4mm. Inside the tyre is a substance that will fill the puncture when the object is removed.
MAXG2 has dual-braking, an LED front light and even turn signals and an electric bell.
What all the Segway-Ninebot KickScooters all have in common is BMS (Battery Management System) which has overcurrent, short circuit and temperature protection.
Apple’s Find My location has also been integrated so iPhone users can easily locate their scooter through the Find My app.
All the Segway-Ninebot scooters also work with a companion app so you can monitor charge levels and activate features.
F2 SERIES – $949 (F2), $1,099 (F2 Plus), $1,399 (F2 Pro)
