Segway i2 Personal Transporter Review

SEGWAY is widely known for being the first commercially available 2 wheeled self balancing electric scooter. The i2 Personal Transporter is one of the popular 2 wheeler model that is still currently available in the market.

Even though the costs of owning one is high, SEGWAY was instrumental in popularising the idea (2002 to 2013) of using a battery-powered electric vehicle, that’s able to uses gyroscopic sensors and accelerometer-based leveling sensors to detect and alter directional angles, while maintaining balance, and propelling its wheels forward or backward, to commute.

Pros: The Original Self Balancing Scooter Brand. Fun. Easy to learn.
Cons: Expensive. Dated. Stagnant.

1. Segway has been purchased by Ninebot, a China-based competitor that makes similar-looking personal transportation in early 2015.
2. The Segway brand has also been plagued by negative publicity surrounding the death of the owner of the company that makes Segway motorised scooters. In an unfortunate freak accident, he died while riding one of their own vehicles off a cliff on 26 September 2010.
