Segway will be launching a new crowdfunding campaign via Indiegogo next month for the company’s first electric dirt bikes. The range of Segway electric dirt bikes will be officially launching in the first quarter of 2020 with prices starting from $3,000 for the X160 and $4,500 for the X260. The Indiegogo campaign will start later this month on November 25th, 2019 allowing those interested to order one of the electric dirt bikes at a reduced price.
The new Segway Dirt eBike and marks a significant expansion into a new market category for Segway Powersports. The Dirt eBike X160 and X260 are Segway’s first electric powersports products that are a hybrid between a dirt and mountain bike, specifically built to provide riders with a “superior off-road experience” says Segway.
“Our core focus is to create innovative transportation solutions that will help people move around their communities – including solutions for the urban dweller and outdoor adventurer,” said Julie Tang, Marketing Director at Segway. “The popularity of electric vehicles has made its way to the biking segment and we are proud to meet the growing eco-conscious consumer demands by introducing Segway Dirt eBike, our first product focused solely on the outdoor consumer who wants a rugged and high performance dirt biking experience.”
On why entering the field of Powersports, Luke Gao, CEO of Segway-Ninebot, explained, “In the past two decades, Segway has been developing world-class self-balancing Personal Transporters (PT) and electric scooters used in multiple different industries. We are hoping to break our boundaries in product creations celebrating our mission of ‘innovation and exploration’. With the expertise in technology and industrial design, the PowerSports line may just be that dream come true. It is created not only to make our riders’ exploration more fun and fearless but also to stand for a groundbreaking moment for the Segway brand as well.”
