Segway’s hydrogen electric hybrid bike is a more chubby, Tron-esque motorbike design!

If we believe Segway, the future of mobility is going to be powered by hybrid powertrains – at least for motorbikes. And not your usual hybrid, it’s going to be a hydrogen-electric powertrain for minimal environmental impact with the maximum power output. After experimenting with the clumsy-looking electric-powered Segway Apex unveiled in 2019, Segway has again dropped a bombshell on the automotive community in the form of a Segway Apex H2 hybrid bike. The machine is going to be a hydrogen fuel cell-driven monster with a reworked frame bestowing it with a futuristic design that is rounded enough to keep it from being extremely aggressive/ edgy design with the neon rings on the wheels embodying a definite Tron vibe.

The highly combustible fuel (we are talking about hydrogen, right) is the way to go for the future, and Apex H2 wants to leverage it, just like the hydrogen fuel cell hybrid cars. The machine will have hydrogen gas stored in the tanks which will be converted into electrical energy to power the electric motors.

From what we see here, there isn’t any visible hub motor to actuate the rear wheel. It’s left only to the imagination that Segway might be onto something innovative here. The mean-looking suspension forks make the Apex H2 a predator on the prowl to eat down the miles of freeway. It’s kind of floating as front wheels are attached to a single-sided front swingarm (to match the one on the rear), and a well-disguised monoshock setting. The sporty aesthetics continue to the steering mechanism neatly tucked in the stellar body of the machine under the tank. Those flowing sharp lines, and the chiseled look, actually makes the Apex H2 futureproof when it finally makes it to reality – it’s so irresistible.

According to Segway, the motorbike will churn out 60KW (80 hp) of meat for an acceleration of 0-62 mph in flat four seconds. The top speed will also be right there at the sweet spot at around 93 mph. All this signals a performance machine coming our way in 2023. Yes, Segway says, they are on track to bring the Apex H2 to the motor enthusiasts for an estimated price tag of $10,700.

While the price tag might surprise you, as it’s not very high, it signals Segway’s intention to make it a practical performance road bike. Of course, having hydrogen fuel stations is one question still leaving a lot to the imagination, the bike for now is your best bet to ride an urban mean machine to enchant the crowd. It has that Cybertruck-like masculine character to make anyone go weak in the knees!

Segway’s newest flat-pack e-scooter is the answer for sustainable city-commute

When life as we used to know it resumes, the one thing I wish would not change from the pandemic time period is having lesser street traffic. If you live in a city, you can feel the difference in the air, clarity of the sky, reduced noise, and the fact that you aren’t stressed about driving on congested streets! It has shown us that reducing the number of vehicles on the street has a positive impact on our environment which is also better for our health. Realistically, we can’t keep vehicles off the roads but what we can do is adopt energy-efficient alternatives like Segway’s Ninebot KickScooter Air T15 – easier for your commute and easier on the planet!

This award-winning e-scooter was designed keeping in mind the needs of someone commuting daily in a city. Thus it was made portable, lightweight and since it literally folds in half, it is an extremely convenient option. Segway is already a global leader in electric mobility and they are not only upping their tech but also their design game with this scooter. The Ninebot KickScooter Air T15 is seamless, compact, and minimal in its form. The Air T15 team spent over SIX years (nearly 12,500 hours) perfecting its ergonomic design using the lightest yet the most durable material for a sleek and futuristic aesthetic without compromising on reliability and power.

With one click you can fold the scooter into half and the 6-axis sensor embedded in the dashboard will detect the operation mode which will help to turn the power off automatically. Once folded, you can drag it smoothly like a suitcase with wheels. The body is created using an aluminum-magnesium alloy to keep it lightweight yet strong enough to keep up with its performance needs. The material used makes the scooter splash-proof, corrosion-resistant,  and eco-friendly. One of the features that really make it stand out in terms of being energy efficient is the regenerative braking system that turns your e-scooter into a vehicle powered by electricity by using the recycled energy from riding. The wheels are able to transform the energy that is captured during braking into power and to store it in the integrated lithium battery pack.

We love the attention to detail that the design team has showcased through every element in the scooter. The retractable handlebars cooperate with the smooth, linear design, and the use of silica to make them ensure comfort. It also features a bezel-less monitoring dashboard that is intuitive to use and elevates your commute experience with its integrated design. Continuing on the road to better the UI and UX, the team placed the DIP switches on the rear fender for users to power on/off, control the light, and change the riding modes with ease. For a little fun element, the LED light bar on the front has different color settings while adding functionality to the overall design.

Choose from four riding modes based on your needs and environment – Pedestrian Mode, Energy-saving Mode, Standard Mode and Sport Mode with a preset speed limit of 3.7 mph (6 km/h), 6.2 mph (10 km/h), 9.3 mph (15 km/h), and 12.4 mph (20 km/h) respectively. Keeping with the times, Segway’s Ninebot KickScooter Air T15 comes with its own app that is available on iOS and Android with the integration of Bluetooth connectivity, customize LED ambient light colors, live riding stats dashboard, and more. With a scooter this smooth and smart, you can adapt to environmentally-friendly commuting with ease and actually make your journey to sustainable living fun!
