They’ve taken over the personal mobility market, when most of us think of Segway the first thing that comes to mind, is the two wheeled scooter that you stand on and lean in the direction you want to go in. To take personal mobility to the next level, Segway Villain and Segway Fugleman are a step in the right direction.
The Hybrid Engines
What sets Segway Villain and Segway Fugleman apart from all the other side by sides on the market is the engine – it’s hybrid. You get three options for Segway Fugleman, the 570cc hybrid engine, 1000cc hybrid engine or 1000cc non-hybrid engine, for the Segway Villain you get two options, either 1000cc hybrid engine or the 1000 non-hybrid engine.
