Segway PowerSports launch in NZ

The first product from the new Segway PowerSports division has launched in New Zealand, and were on display at National Field Days last week (16-19 June 2021).

We reported the first sneak peaks of this exciting lineup here on 26 October 2019 and development has continued at pace since then on the Snarler, Fugleman and Villan.

Segway’s unique Hybrid petrol-electric powertrains will feature throughout the range.

Snarler Quad Bikes in short and long wheelbase configurations with petrol drivetrains have been available in New Zealand for several months (from $12,165+GST) in a choice of three colour schemes. Later this year the Hybrid petrol-electric engine option will arrive, delivering twice the torque (96 N-m vs 48 N-m).

Segway Fugleman UTV is also due later this year, also featuring the choice of petrol or Hybrid powertrains. Side-by-side vehicles are increasingly popular on New Zealand farms and rural properties, offering increased safety and convenience along with larger cargo carrying capacity.

The Segway Villan SSV is a recreational sports vehicle – and the Hybrid version is coming for you like something out of a James Bond film – packing 250 N-m torque.

Segway New Zealand has been selling Segway products to Kiwi farmers and recreational users since 2003.

Most recently, we launched had the Segway Dirt Bike range since January 2021, and already Kiwi farmers, forestry and other landowners have been joining recreational riders in purchasing the awesome Segway X260 and X160 models. For example, see Kiwi Farmer Adopts Segway Dirt Bike. To order call 0800 2 SEGWAY or email us at segwaynz@icloud.com.

All full-sized Segway Personal Transporters (PTs) are surprisingly capable across a wide variety of terrain.

Segway’s first focused off-road product was the Segway XT Cross-terrain Transporter (2005) featuring ATV tyres. It was designed to take trailblazing riders across mud, sand and snow with safety and easy. This was also the first model in Segway’s self-balancing Personal Transporter (PT) range to receive Lithium battery packs (previous models 2002-2005 had used NiMH packs with half the range). Shortly after, the specially configured Segway GT model was the first Golf Transporter, capable of more than 36 holes per charge.

From the same time period the prototype-only Segway Centaur crossed a quad-bike with a PT to create a hybrid device able to transform from riding on 4 wheels to 2 wheels, able to turn around in narrow spaced and climb over objects.

Segway’s next generation of ‘LeanSteer’ PTs (i2, x2 and x2 Golf models) evolved through to the current Segway i2 SE and x2 SE range with ATV, Turf and Golf variants. Search the Segway NZ News archives for many articles about Kiwi farmers and other landowners deploying Segway PTs for productivity and convenience, and about golfers who would never play another round without their Segway PT.

For the more adventurous and agile, Segway’s Ninebot ONE Z10 electric unicycle is a unique way to explore the great outdoors on a single, wide, deeply treaded tyre.

The Segway x2SE climbs every mountain (ok, with some exceptions), and the Ninebot by Segway Z10 electric unicycle fits through almost any gap along a trail

The latest ‘SE’ range of Segway Personal Transporters (PTs) feature Extended Range battery packs for more range than ever before.

Buy the 2021 model range today from Segway New Zealand, and configure with a wide range of standard and custom accessories – front bags, side bags, cargo bins, Golf bag carrier and more.

Motorhomes (RVs) and Segway PTs are a good fit for travellers and adventurers

Motorhomes (or RVs as our American friends like to call them) have become increasingly popular in New Zealand over the last 20 years. Once a rarity on our roads – mostly seen as a vehicle hired by international tourists (remember them, pre-Covid?) – today there are tens of thousands of motorhomes are owned and being enjoyed by Kiwis exploring the country.

A Segway Personal Transporter (PT) is a fantastic addition to any motorhome for so many reasons. Sure, an e-scooter or a bicycle (or two) can be kinda handy. But if you really want to get about when you’ve parked up and reached your destination – and actually be able to get to more places – it is the Segway PT that is the device you need. You might even want a pair. Once you’ve parked up your big motorhome the nimble Segway PT will zip you down to the local supermarket/corner Dairy/Fish & Chip shop/Bar or Pub….even down to the end of a wharf to catch a fish or out to the point to catch the sun setting.

There are a lot of reasons why Segway PTs are a fantastic personal mobility solution. The self-balancing Segway PT was designed from the ground up to be easy and safe to ride, and to go pretty much anywhere a person can walk – especially if you have a mobility impairment. The Segway PT is at home on a road, footpath or shared path, and yes of course it can climb right to the top of the steepest hills (including Baldwin Street in Dunedin, only the steepest street in the world). And it will safely take you up the 4WD track to the very summit of Mount Maunganui. By the way, a skilled rider can get to the top on a mini-Segway as well).

No other mobility device is going to take you places like those, or to places like this.

The powerful Segway PT has large diameter wheels provide a comfortable ride at speed, provide lots of grip, and the ability to cross all kinds of terrain (unlike, say, an e-scooter or a mobility scooters). If the standard Segway i2 SE tyre doesn’t provide all you need then simply change to Enhanced Traction Tyres, or choose the Segway x2 SE with either ATV or balloon Turf tyres. Transverse snow, mud or sand and take your Segway PT places no bicycle or e-bike can ride. Plus, the Segway PT is light enough to lift, carry or tug over larger obstacles you may encounter along your way.

Motorhomes tend to have narrow doorways, so stowing a Segway PT inside is not so easy. Some models have storage bins on the side of the vehicle that can accommodate a Segway PT. Another option is to add a custom cargo compartment to your motorhome. This will keep your Segway PT(s) safe and secure no matter where you venture.

Here is a photo of a cargo compartment that a long-time Kiwi Segway PT owner has had built onto the rear of his motorhome that he uses to travel around the South Island. It can hold up to two Segway PTs at a time, together with plenty of other items.

This custom compartment built onto the back of a motorhome holds up to two Segway PTs (left: open, right: closed).

Another Kiwi couple towed a small van behind their motorhome. Into the rear of the van was built a special space to hold a Segway PT. It is easy to load a PT in or out without any lifting by using Segway Ramps. Read and see more photos at our article The Motorhome RV and the Segway PT.

Other options includes single or twin manual or powered tow-bar carriers for Segway PTs, such as the TriLift.

Here is our article Carrying your Segway PT inside your car or on your tow bar.

Oh, and one more thing: when you take a Segway PT along for the ride, you meet a lot more people along the way.

Accessories for Segway Dirt Bikes (also fits Sur Ron Light Bee X)

Segway Dirt Bikes come fully spec’d for off-road fun. They have everything you need, straight out-of-the-box.

But some riders always want and need a little more, depending on their circumstances and how they use their bike.

Owners love to customise, and the sky’s the limit for your Segway Dirt Bike – everything from after-market transfer stickers to up-rated brakes and shocks, from a sprocket to change the gearing ratio to a larger front wheel….

Segway NZ has hand-picked the following selection of after-market accessories for the X260 and X160 (and these also fit the Sur Ron Light Bee X). We have them in-stock now now, and also sell them as an Accessories Package at a special price (see below).

Kiwi dairy farmer adopts Segway Dirt Bike

A Levin man is the first Kiwi dairy farmer to add the Segway Dirt Bike to his fleet of vehicles.

A Segway Dirt Bike X260 joins the Tesla Model 3 and Nissan Leaf on a Kiwi dairy farmer’s property in Levin

John was attracted to the X260 because it is very quiet around the livestock, starts instantly, and is easy to mount and dismount. With no gears, riding around and amongst cattle at any speed is effortless.

“I have a 200cc Suzuki farm bike, and if that falls over I actually struggle to lift it up again – especially in slippery conditions” says John. Lifting the 59kg Segway X260 is safe and easy. Being so light, it is also very easy to get out of tight situations.

The Segway ‘Dirt Bike’ is not spec’d or sold as a fully fledged farm bike, as such. Accordingly, this enterprising farmer intends to make a few modifications to improve suitability. The first is to add a larger foot for the kickstand, for extra support when parking it on soft ground. John’s farm is on flat, low-laying land close to the western coast of the lower North Island.

He has also identified the need for some addition shielding, to protect the bike from a build-up of cow dung. A rear flap, and a cover over the front face of the frame were two areas discussed with Philip Bendall from Segway NZ during delivery. Several third-party manufacturers offer flaps for this purpose on sites such as eBay. Additional shielding may also be required elswhere on the bike for use in a heavy dairy environment, depending on where, how and by whom the X260 is used on the farm. This may be less of a consideration on cattle, sheep or deer farms, and unnecessary on orchards or vineyards. The off-road, recreational-use design of the Segway Dirt Bike makes it ideal for long climbs on steeper properties, and better for adventurously accessing rougher areas than a utility bike.

After-market mud flaps such as this one are an option to prevent mud and stones flicking up off the rear wheel

By design, the headlight of the Segway X260 lights up whenever the key is turned on. John says it would be helpful to be able to turn off the headlight so as not to be shining the bright light into their eyes, especially when moving cattle at dawn and dusk at certain times of the year. Minimising stress of all kinds is essential to maximising production across a dairy herd, and farmers have identified near-silent electric motorbikes as a way to minimise stress resulting from vehicle noise.

Segway NZ offers an after-market OFF/ON Switch for the Headlight for $95+GST. This switch is a ‘plug & play’ accessory – simply plug it in-line to the Segway Dirt Bike wiring loom, and you’re good to go (no cutting or joining of wires is required).

John is an electric vehicle enthusiasts, and is committed to reducing the carbon emissions from his farming business. His garage already includes a Tesla Model 3 and a Nissan Leaf. On the day his Segway Dirt Bike was delivered a new electric lawn mower also arrived. His house has solar panels on the roof, and energy is stored in a Fronius Primo storage battery pack on the wall of the garage to power the house when the sun isn’t shining.

Hydrogen-electric Segway motorbike concept

Segway has revealed the first details of a forthcoming hydrogen-electric motorbike named Apex H2.

The Segway Apex H2 – from the right side the front and rear wheels appear disconnected from the chassis of the bike.

The H2 follows hot on the heals of Segway’s first Apex street bike/sportsbike concept. There is an excellent article about the original 200 km/h Apex working prototype, including photos and video of it performing hot laps here at Electrek. Segway NZ’s Philip Bendall sat on this Apex in Beijing in 2019, and took a series of photographs (see later in this article).

The original Segway Apex (2019)

Now, lets get back to discussing our Tron-inspired Light Cycle motorcycling future. New Atlas has an excellent article analysing what is known about the forthcoming Segway Apex H2, saying:

Now, there’s an Apex H2 coming, which will run a hydrogen-electric hybrid powertrain – gaseous hydrogen stored in tanks will be converted into electrical energy through a fuel cell and fed into a buffer battery, which will power an electric motor that drives the rear wheel in some way or another – we can’t see whether there’s a chain drive or a hub motor or what indeed is going on in these renders. Yes, that’s an exhaust port in front of the rear wheel, but all that’ll be coming out of it is water vapor.

The Segway Apex H2 will feature an impressive sub-4 second launch from 0-100 km/h, 60kW power output and a top speed of 150 km/h.

Once the rider has squeezed the last of the molecules out of the on-board hydrogen tank and through the fuel cell, and the final electrons from the battery pack, refuelling is achieved by swapping out the empty H2 capsule with a full one. Alternatively, an empty capsule can be refilled at around the same speed as refilling a petrol bike. Today, Hydrogen refilling capacity is limited at present to a few places in California, Japan, and (presumably) China too. On the other hand, Hydrogen offers a way forward for electric vehicles because it offers an energy storage density much higher than Lithium. For a high-performance bikes such as the Apex H2 it is being speculated that a hydrogen fuel cell approach will offer longer range between fuel stops compared with Lithium storage batteries.

Refilling is quick and easy – swap out an empty capsule for a full one. Or refill the capsule at an H2 bowser.

Further inspiration from the Light Cycles featured in the Tron movies include “floating” wheels. From the right side, the the front and rear wheels of the Apex H2 look like they’re disconnected from the bike and are floating on air, thanks to a single-sided front swingarm and hidden monoshock arrangement, to match the single-sided swingarm at the back. According to an opinion at Jalopink.com:

Connecting the front wheel using a swingarm is unusual and only a few motorcycles like the Bimota TESI 3DYamaha GTS1000 and Vyrus 985 have a similar design. Operationally, it shares some of its moves with the BMW Telelever and the double-wishbone front end of the latest Honda Gold Wing.

The left side of the Apex H2 shows how the front and rear wheels are connected to the chassis of the bike.

All this futuristic styling and powertrain is said to be available in the near future – for under US $11,000…

That’s right – Segway says the first Apex H2’s will be delivered in 2023, following a successful launch campaign to raise 99 initial orders.

From the original Tron movie (1982) through to the 210 sequel Tron: Legacy, many imaginations have been inspired by the radical design of the Light Cycles featured in those movies (and in the subsequent cartoon series Tron: Uprising set between them).

Segway’s interest in motorcycles goes back a long way. During the late-2000’s there was a secret in-house development program code-named Steeldust. Very few people knew about this project.

Distributors and Dealers were shown design sketches and a short video of a working Steeldust prototype that featured dual hub motors front and rear. Aimed at the urban commuter market, Steeldust was conceived as a cool, futuristic electric motor scooter (or moped) – ideal for busy urban centres – and intended to be desirable in those places where petrol equivalents were already popular (i.e. European and Asian citys, less so in America).

Segway’s pioneering use of dual hub motors would provide for super-quick acceleration, very strong anti-skid braking force, and other safety features simply unobtainable in any petrol scooter of the day. Further, the intrinsic benefits of this very same layout could be mapped onto a form suitable as a farm/utility bike….which was exactly the format the New Zealand company UBCO Bikes would adopt a decade later with their range of farm/utility bikes (and subsequent road-legal variants).

Whilst Steeldust was never developed into a commercial product, Segway’s interest in zero-emission motorcycles continued to advance. Spectacular, world-beating success soon followed with a string of wins at the world’s most famous motorcycle race – The Isle of Man TT.

A new TT Zero race category for electric motorbikes was launched in 2010.

Segway’s Motocyzysz team won the Isle of Man TT Zero competition in 2011, 2012 and 2013 (Motocyzysz also won the inaugural TT Zero in 2010).

Team Motoczycz’s first won the TT Zero in 2010, and by the following year Segway had become the key sponsor and contributed key technologies to Motoczycz leading to further wins at the TT Zero competitions in 2011, 2012 and 2013. Each year of wins was achieved with ever-increasing speeds. Here is an excerpt from our Segway NZ News article (as linked above):

A look at the year-on-year improvements in average speed in this one-lap race around the island’s 37.7 mile Snaefell Mountain Course show how rapidly improvements are being made:

2010: 96.8 mph / 155.8 kph

2011: 98.6 mph / 158.7 kph

2012: 104.0 mph / 167.5 kph

2013: 109.7 mph / 176.4 5ph

The original Apex was a working prototype, and is on display at Segway-Ninebot’s HQ in Beijing. While we wait for further details about the Apex H2, here are a series of photographs of the original Apex taken by Philip Bendall during a visit to China in 2019.

Three options to transport your Segway Dirt Bike

Here are three ways to transport your Segway Dirt Bike – from where you are right now to wherever you want to ride.

#1 is….you CAN LAY IT DOWN on the deck of your ute, in the back of your SUV, or on any trailer you want.

With no petrol to spill out or oil to leak, there is no mess with an Segway electric Dirt Bike. Just put it down on its side – any which way you like!

#2 is….you can use a motorbike trailer

A specialised motorbike trailer is a popular choice amongst dirt bike owners, especially if they have more than one bike.

#3….is a tow-bar dirt bike carrier

There are several brands of carrier for sale in New Zealand.

One example is the ‘Slipstream’ from Trax Equipment, manufactured from aluminium and galvanised steel. There are adaptors for use with either a 50mm square receptor type or a flat tongue type tow-bar. A detachable ramp is stored parallel to the bike when not in use.

Options include a ‘wheel lock’ that holds the bike upright to enable easy one-person loading and tying down, and a lighting panel if the bike blocks the brake and/or indicator lights on your vehicle. If your number plate is obscured then you can obtain a Supplementary Number Plate to attach to the carrier (~$20 from NZTA).

e-Scooter rider fined $4,000 for careless and inconsiderate use of a vehicle

In what is believed to the the first Police prosecution of its type in New Zealand, an Auckland man has been fined $4,000 for careless and inconsiderate use of a vehicle.

In June 2019 a man was riding a Lime sharing scooter along a footpath and collided with a woman who was stepping out of a bus. The collision knocked her to the ground and according to a NZ Herald report sustained serious injuries and concussion (see here). NewsHub had video footage of the accident from the bus CCTV here.

An e-Scooter is a “vehicle” under New Zealand law (but is not a “motor vehicle”). The Land Transport Act includes the provision:

8 Drivers not to be careless or inconsiderate

A person may not drive a vehicle, or cause a vehicle to be driven, carelessly or without reasonable consideration for other persons

Part 11 of the Land Transport (Road User) Rule 2004:

Pedestrians, riders of mobility devices, and wheeled recreational devices

11.1 Use of footpath and roadway

  1. (1)  A pedestrian must, at all times when practicable, remain on the footpath if one is provided.
  2. (2)  A driver must not drive a mobility device on any portion of a roadway if it is practicable to drive on a footpath.
  3. (3)  A pedestrian or driver of a mobility device or a wheeled recreational device using the roadway must remain as near as practicable to the edge of the roadway.

(4) A driver of a mobility device or wheeled recreational device on a footpath— (a) must operate the device in a careful and considerate manner; and

(b) must not operate the device at a speed that constitutes a hazard to other footpath users.

(5) A person using a wheeled recreational device on a footpath must give way to pedestrians and drivers of mobility devices.

(6) A pedestrian must not unduly impede the passage of a mobility device or wheeled recreational device on the footpath.

Rhythm and Vines – and Segway PTs (Event Management)

Rhythm and Vines (often abbreviated as R&V or RnV) has become a rite of passage for young New Zealanders. A massive, three-day extravaganza culminating on New Years Eve/Day, this event has been entertaining Kiwis for almost two decades. And Segway PTs have played productive, supporting roles in event management and public safety on several occasions.

The first RnV was a one-day event beginning on the last day of 2003. The following year Segway New Zealand sent its one-and-only Segway e167* to help out organisers and entertain 5,500 guests. RnV is the kind of event where you never know what you might encounter next – perhaps even a glowing Manta-Seg-Ray somewhere in the night.

Within a few years RnV had grown to a three-day event with twice as many guests. A Segway x2 Turf played a key role at the nearby BW campgrounds, where most guests camped. When it comes to keeping an eye on things, a rider on a Segway PT can cover 9 times the area in a third of the time, making patrolling far more efficient. By 2010 RnV was selling-out with 25,000 guests – and has done ever since.

In December 2020 a Segway x2SE Patroller spent several weeks helping with the build-up. A contractor used the Segway PT to manage the construction of this sprawling event, saying “It saved my life!”

His productivity tripled, and he was able to check in with more subcontractors every hour. He could get from one corner of the vast site to another at sprinting speed, to quickly follow up on requests or attend to urgent matters. Compared to 2004, when a Segway e167** model managed perhaps 10km on NiMH battery packs when rolling across grassy rolling land, the latest x2SE Patroller with Extended Range Lithium battery packs powers across the same terrain for up to 40km between recharges (despite weight about twice the weight of the e167).

Segway PTs are available for hire from Segway NZ (0800 2 SEGWAY or segwaynz@icloud.com). We have every model and configuration available, including Steadicam-ready and custom solutions.

You can register for Rhythm and Vines 2021 here.

  • * the Segway e167 was a very special model intended for productivity roles. It is the only Segway model to feature the e-Stand, where the device self-balances in place when the rider steps off. This was a much-loved feature by many – that disappeared at the end of 2006 when the Gen 1 family of Segway models was discontinued.
  • ** Learn more about the e167 and other early models, evolution and pre-production models here.
