Visit Segway NZ’s outstanding Stand #3087 in Hall 3 this week and see our Ferrari Segway i2. This one of only two examples in the Southern Hemisphere – only 40 were ever made in the Ferrari factory in Maranello, Italy.
We’ve also got every Segway PT model on display: White, Black and Metallic Sage i2’s in Commuter and Security packages, the x2 Adventure and the x2 Golf.
We have all the accessories on show and for sale, including the brand new InfoKey Skin.
You’ll also see Big Boys Toys staff cruising the show on Segway PTs we’ve loaned the organisers for use during setup and operation. One of these is the rare e-167 model (2002-2005) cargo model which stands in place on an “electronic kickstand” when you dismount. The productivity benefits of the Segway PT at large sites like this is of almost immeasurable value – staff get much more done in a fraction of the time.
Friday 14 November: 10am-9pm
Saturday 15 November: 9am-9pm
Sunday 16 November: 9am-6pm
YouTube is featuring an entertaining clip showing a chimpanzee teaching itself to ride a Segway PT in just a few minutes. This demonstrates how quick and easy the PT is for just about anyone to learn to use. Simply type “chimp segway” into the search box.
And if you’d like to see a Segway ride up Baldwin Street – the steepest street in the world – right here in Dunedin, New Zealand, type “segway baldwin” into the search box. You’ll see Kevin Hey from Segway on Q (his business operates Segway tours in Queenstown) gliding up this almost impossibly steep urban road!
