Near the end of last year Segway, the well-known name in the world of electric ridables, announced that it is getting into the electric powersports market by launching their own model of an electric dirt bike, the Segway Dirt eBike, as they called it. It is offered in two models, X160 and X260, the first one being a bit smaller, with the 17” wheels. The X160 features a single crown suspension, 3kW peak motor and can reach top speeds of 31 miles per hour, travel up to 40 miles and climb a slope of 35°.
Despite being small in size, and relatively lightweight (about 106 lbs), this electric dirt bike packs some serious performance. In order to enhance the overall torque, this dirt ebike is equipped with a dual-drive system, made up of a Primary Drive System, which includes an HTD 8M belt of 22 inches and a Secondary Drive System, which includes a 420 chain with 112 sections.
Now, if you are a fan of electric dirt bikes, you might have noticed that the Segway Dirt eBike looks very familiar. It is almost identical as Sur-Ron Light Bee X electric trail bike, and it is not an issue of copying. The Segway is actually the largest share-holder in the Sur-Ron company, so their dirt bike is largely based on Sur-Ron, but there are some styling differences and some engineering improvements. All in all, this electric motocross bikes is capable of hauling an adult, it is in fact super fun to ride.
