Segway has long since matured its brand name beyond the dorky design that’s associated with guided tours and mall cops. Their professional lineup still includes those classics, but Segway has expanded its consumer offerings with scooters, mopeds and go-karts.
They’ve even designed a conceptual sports bike that runs on hydrogen and electricity and an electric dirt bike.
Segway designed the SuperScooter GT2 with dual-wheel drive and a peak power output of 6000W. The 1,512Wh battery gives riders an impressive nearly 56-mile range.
If the GT2 is just a little too extreme for you, Segway designed the SuperScooter GT1 that features lower speeds for those of us who aren’t planning on drag-racing our electric scooters.
Segway built both models with a dual-suspension system, 11-inch tubeless all-season tires that have a self-sealing function, and a shifting knob that gives you six driving modes: park, eco, sport, race, boost, and walk.
It’s a bit ironic that Segway would be the one to make electric scooters look and feel cool, but you can’t argue with that sick bunny hop.
Segway chose to go through Indiegogo for its SuperScooter GT series, but they’ve since raised more than $780,000 from 237 backers at the time of publishing. The campaign has already blasted past its initial $50,000 flex goal and still has 25 days to go.
Segway said they’re already producing the scooters and is expecting delivery of the first batch in August 2022.
