That great personal electric transport store in Taiwan that gave us the first detailed look at the Ninebot/Segway KickScooter ES-1 is back with another video, highlighting the differences between the Ninebot/Segway KickScooter ES-1 and ES-2.
Nothing is disassembled in this one. The presentation is primarily verbal, which means people who don’t understand Chinese (like me) won’t grasp most of it but it’s evident he understands the key differences between the two and is advising people on which they should choose for their own needs.
First, some screensnaps.
From left to right: ES-2, ES-1, and a final production sample of the ES-1 he examined in the first video:
ES-2 spec label:
Key differences of ES-2; first it has rear suspension:
And that’s a light at the back, not just a reflector:
The ES-2 also has underside running lights:
A very interesting difference is the folding latch, which remains in one position on the ES-1, while on the ES-2 it can be folded up and out of the way:
The ES-2 also has grippier handles:
I think Ninebot/Segway will do very well with these eScooters. They’re a globally-known and trusted brand. I wouldn’t be surprised to see a lot of these on the streets of New York City next Spring and Summer if Ninebot/Segway gets wide distribution for them here in the States. Despite the fact they’re heavier than the NextDrive 2.0 carbon fiber electric scooter — and similar models — Swagtron’s cheap first-generation clone import has poisoned the well for that kind of scooter.
