Default Ninebot Sighting

I was at a big South Florida outdoor art festival over the weekend, The Delray Affair, http://delrayaffair.com/. As I was ridding around on my 12 year old P133 with my dog ridding with me I saw my first Ninebot. The gentleman who was on it came up to me to talk. I'm sure a lot of you have seen one but for me it was the first one I've seen. I got to ask him all the questions I've been answering for the last 12 years; How much does it cost? What kind of range do you get from you batteries? What does it weigh? We've all answered those kind of questions. One of the interesting things he asked me was, he asked if I've heard anything about the news Segway is suppose to make in a few days? I ask if he heard it was good news or bad news. He said good news. He also said that with the Lithium batteries on the Ninebot you can fly with them on the machine. Anybody hear that? It was a good looking PT. Lighter than even the P's. More range too. Anybody out here ever ride one, or hear what Segway might be working on?

Which Ninebot model you saw, the single wheel one or the Segway look alike? Haven't heard anything about a new Segway model coming soon.

The Ninebot I saw this weekend was the Ninebot-E. Looks like our 2 wheel Segways. Here's a link to the model I'm talking about.

Airdale, that is the price from a US distributor. If you wanted to buy a few direct from China, it would be closer to your price of $1500.

I saw one at the Gadget Show last week. There was one store selling the Ninebot and Airwheel and one selling the Robstep. They were both (almost) adjacent to the Segway UK stand!

I had a quick look but to me they looked like toys compared with the Segway - especially the Camo x2SE on display and the Segway Patroller.

Segway UK didn't seem too concerned.

So, even though they claim redundant / backup electronic systems, the machine depends on 1 battery. Segway is truly redundant with 2 batteries.

Well, like hem or not, (the Ninebot), they're now family. Just announced today, Ninebot acquires Segway.
