Vehicle2019 Segway-Ninebot GoKart
What do you get when you fit a Segway
miniPRO self balancing scooter behind
Ninebot's two front wheels, seat, and
steering wheel kit? A Segway GoKart!

This incredibly fun to operate Segway GoKart
kit was on 1/2 price sale in Oct 2019 and
since we added this to our Light EV demos,
it is the most popular Light EV in our fleet
for people of all ages to test ride!

Thankfully, the front bumper is available as
a reasonably priced replacement part, we
needed it after our 3rd EVent!

Charger

Top Speed16 MPH (25 KPH)
After 40 hours of operation, the Segway-
Ninebot firmware allows you to get up to
16mph! At least when the GoKart is attached
to the Segway miniPRO or compatible Ninebot
S, there is none of the pushing back against
you when the miniPRO is new and is limited
to an arbitrary initial speed far below
16mph!
Range5 Miles ( 8 Kilometers)
Honestly, we weren't trying to go any
significant distance. The Segway miniPRO
alone has a range of 5 mi on flat ground.
Seating Capacity1
Curb Weight65 Pounds (29 Kilograms)
65lb all put together
Conversion Time45min after unpacking, the Segway-Ninebot
GoKart kit was working with the Segway
miniPRO. 20min of that was updating the
firmware on the miniPRO and an Android
smartphone!
Conversion Cost$550 (on top of the Segway miniPRO which we
acquired used for $175)
Additional FeaturesThere is a everse gear instead of Fred Flintstone leg pushing!
Adjustable performance is available from the
Android/iPod/iPhone app.
More to come in this space. The Segway/Ninebot GoKart brings
out all kinds of folks who never thought Light EVs would be so
much fun, or so quick and nimble!
