The technical details and safety features of the Segway miniPRO –
On just sighting the miniPRO looks a class apart in comparison to the other two wheeled electric boards available. It is available in two colors – black and white. Though the Ninebot is heavier (it weighs around 12,7kgs) than other electric scooters it is much faster as it gets its power from a UL 2272 certified lithium ion battery that charges real fast and runs up to 25kms on a single charge. It has a speed of 16 km/h max, can carry weight up to 100kgs and can be easily ridden on slopes with 15 degrees incline. The high performance dual motor and superior quality vacuum tyres make every ride a smooth one, no matter the terrain. It has a distinctive knee control bar that is adjustable to accommodate different riders and can be easily removed for convenient storage and transport.
The Ninebot is built with sturdy and lightweight materials making it durable as well as portable and the extendable trolley handle bar makes it easy to pull around when it is not being ridden. An additional safety feature is that when over speeding the miniPRO beeps a warning and automatically slows down to the appropriate speed. Other cool characteristics include a Bluetooth enabled remote control, LED lights, brake and turn signals, a parking light and a headlight increasing its visibility even at night. This model of the self-balancing scooter by Segway is dust proof and water proof.

The Ninebot by Segway miniPRO comes with an anti-theft alarm app that sends an alert if someone tries to touch or move it, making it the ultimate personal transporter.
