Chalk one up for the good guys in the war on laziness. Nice try, and clever technology, but there's just not enough there to make it worth spending thousands of dollars on. Maybe next time they'll forgo the hype and let the product speak for itself.

that serves absolutely no useful purpose. I mean, if this person who wants it can't walk somewhere 5.5 miles (11 miles total distance on the scooter)...what the hell makes anyone think this pussy who bought the scooter can lift/lug around an 80+ pound scooter? Hmmm...spend $5 grand so you can go 11 miles in one shot...sounds like a great idea to me.
maybe it would sell if they called it an SUV? nmDougSloan

"In November, the company announced that consumers could purchase a Segway on Amazon for $4,950. But at that price, the scooter seems doomed to life as a yuppie plaything."
