Segway, under its new parent company Ninebot, has expanded rapidly. It has grown to include electric skates, e-scooter, autonomous delivery robots, off-road sports vehicles, and now, actual scooters and there is a moped too.

Ninebot took the wrap off the new road-legal electric two-wheelers two weeks ago (December 17), revealing the Ninebot C- and E-series.

In addition, Ninebot also took the opportunity to tease an upcoming Segway-Ninebot Electric Superbike. But more on that latter.

The C-Series is a Moped-like vehicle, aka electric bicycle, and the E-Series is a full-fledged electric Vespa-style scooter. C-series is essentially scooter with pedals and it is made up of 3 models, namely, C40, C60 and C80.

Differentiating the models is battery capacity and therefore, range. The C40 gets a 48 V 16 Ah battery good for 35-45 kilometers (21-28 miles).

The C60 is outfitted with a 48 V 20 Ah battery, providing between 55 and 65 kilometers (34-40 miles) while the range-topper C80 receives a 48 V 24 Ah battery that would allow for up to 85 kilometers (53 miles) of range.

Other highlights of the C-Series include 77 kilograms (170 lbs) payload, front disc brake, rear drum brake, regenerative braking, custom Ninebot 400 W brushless motor, IPX5 rated construction, IPX7 rated battery, NFC-enabled, LED lights all round, built-in GPS for location tracking, Ninebot Airlock for remote unlock with smartphone, and a top speed of 25 km/h (16 mph).

The Segway Ninebot C-series sells for 3,999-5,599 yuan (about $573-802).

Segway Ninebot E-Series Electric Scooter

As for the E-Series, it boasts 5 models, namely, E80C, E90, E100, E125, and E200P. Aesthetically, they are almost identical, but unlike the C-Series, the differences between the models are more than just battery capacity and range.

Interestingly, the entry level model is getting a lead-acid battery system as opposed to lithium battery like the rest of the pack.

General speaking, E80C is powered by a Ninebot 10-inch brushless motor with a top speed of 51 km/h (32 mph) and a range of 60-90 km (37-56 miles), while the range topper is powered by Bosch 12-inch brushless motor with 300 Nm (221 lb-ft) on the tap, and has a top speed and range of 100 km/h (62 mph) and up to 200 kilometers (124 miles) range.

Prices of the E-Series start at 4,799 yuan (around $687) and runs up to as much as 16,999 yuan (approx. $2,434) for the range-topping E200P. And oh, here’s the tease of the Segway-Ninebot Electric Superbike:
