Why you should buy the Segway Ninebot Electric Kickscooter on Prime Day

Segway is most famous for the two-wheeled balancing devices that got popular in the mid-2000s. They were seen as futuristic and a bit goofy. They never really took off, and the similar but less goofy (if more unstable) hoverboards were the devices that blew up (figuratively and literally). Today we see Segways mostly in science fiction movies and on city sightseeing tours. They were discontinued in 2020.

But since Segway was purchased by Ninebot, the company has been producing a different kind of two-wheeled balancing vehicle: electric scooters. This Kickscooter model is one of the cheaper ones. It has a motor with a max power output of 500W, making it good for short commutes at nominal speeds. It has a top speed of 15.5 MPH, meaning you have to ride it in the bike lane. It can run for just over 17 miles before running out of juice, so make sure to plan your route out before you use it. It has some nice features, like the ability to fold in half for storage and carrying. It also has built-in lights, two in the front and one in the back. That makes night riding a lot safer — but make sure to wear a helmet. There are some cool accessories you can add to it, like the Segway engine speaker, which simulates the sound of a combustion engine.

You can grab the Segway Ninebot Electric Kickscooter for just $210 as part of Prime Day electric scooter deals. They are usually $500, so this is a fantastic deal you shouldn’t let pass you by.

We've already shared a Prime Day deal on some of Segway's line of electric-powered mobility products. However that's not the only great deal out there by any means, as we also came across another on the Razor EcoSmart Metro Electric Scooter that's too good not to mention. Normally $580, Amazon has cut 46% off of the price for Prime Day.

The Metro gets great reviews. Owners praise the easy assembly and the inclusion of all the tools you need (getting you on the road in no time), and the decent battery life. Razor says you'll get about 40 minutes of continuous use on a single battery charge, making it ideal for quick urban commutes. With a top speed of 18mph -- on the upper range of scooters we've seen.

Prime Day brings deep discounts on Segway scooters, hovershoes, and transporters

Up until recently, you'd be forgiven for thinking that Segway was dead in the water. While the initial launch of its self-balancing scooters was a sensation, real-world sales of the devices were pretty scant, and the company ended up becoming pretty dependent on commercial sales as opposed to the broad consumer appeal it first envisioned. It ended up being acquired by Ninebot four years ago and was practically an afterthought in the mobility category.

Fast forward to today, where hoverboards and electric scooters are all the rage. Segway's nearly decade in the business gives its parent company Ninebot a distinct advantage over its competitors, and it has come out with some pretty neat products as a result. Sure, they're still pricey, but we've found a few Segway products that are deeply discounted thanks to Prime Day.
