You have definitely heard of Segway. The company, offering interesting and fun transportation solutions for short distances, has now started to offer this entertainment with its go-kart kit.
Famous for its self-balancing electric scooters, Segway’s new toy is appealing to both adults and children. Ninebot Electric Gokart promises great fun driving experience.
The kart consists of detachable Segway miniPRO 320 and a go-kart kit. The kit has a payload capacity of 100 kg and can be modified to fit drivers from 130 cm to 190 cm. In other words, both small and big members of the family can enjoy the fun!
The most exciting part of the Segway-Ninebot Electric Gokart is the mechanical handbrake. As you can see in the video, the Segway personally encourages the use of the hand brake. In other words, you can experience the drifting pleasure to the end, which is prohibited and dangerous in the open areas, but not in your garden.
The kart has two 800w electric motors with different speed modes (8 km/h in Novice mode, 18 km/h in Standard mode, 24 km/h in Sport mode). Depending on driving modes, the vehicle can travel up to 20 km on a single charge. 3,5 hours is enough for the kart to be fully charged.
For its new and different toy, Segway has chosen a different marketing strategy. It’s currently being promoted through the crowdfunding platform and i has already raised over 1 million dollars. You can have your full gokart kit from $1,149, or just $669 if you already have the mini Segway.
