Putting the dirt in dirt bike

For all your off-road needs

Segway is known for its city touring vehicles, and more recently, electric
scooters that you can rent (or buy your own) in cities worldwide.

But the Chinese-owned transportation and robotics company is moving into the
great outdoors with its Dirt eBike, an electric dirt bike for off-road

The Dirt eBike was unveiled Tuesday as a hybrid mountain and dirt bike. With
two versions, the X160 and X260, each are priced differently according to
their capabilities: 40 miles on a charge for the smaller bike and 74 miles
for the bigger. The X260 can reach up to 46 mph at max speed. Pricing starts
at $2,999 and $4,499 for the bigger bike.

Julie Tang, Segway marketing director, said in a recent phone call that
Segway is expanding beyond "micromobility" and is dipping into products for
"outdoor adventurers." This is the first time Segway is getting into
powersports. Segway is usually associated with the two-wheeled
self-balancing vehicles that tourists are spotted on.

The batteries for the hybrid mountain bike-electric dirt bike are swappable,
so you can last long distances without giving up any electric power (though
if it came down to it, you could pedal back).

The bikes will be available in the first part of 2020. An Indiegogo online
crowdfunding campaign for the dirt bike kicks off Nov. 25, where early
backers can get discounts on the bikes when they start shipping next year.
