Segway X260 Dirt eBike – First Electric Dirt Bike by Segway

Electric dirt motorcycles are designed to be powerful, efficient and thrilling to ride. One of the best electric dirt bikes around is without a doubt the Segway X260 Dirt eBike, which was just recently released by Segway as the company’s very first electric dirt bike.

It didn’t take that long for the promise of electric vehicles to take over the automotive industry, and that includes motorcycle manufacturers and their ingenious electric dirt motorcycles.

The Segway X260 Dirt eBike is an eco-friendly electric-powered dirt bike that offers superior off-road performance, making it a great performance electric dirt bike for all user types. It’s compact, lightweight, affordable, easy to maintain, learn and master.

“The Segway X260 Dirt eBike makes it possible for more people than ever to participate in exciting off-road adventures that they could only dream of before.”

Let’s take a look at Segway’s brand-new electric dirt bike and check its design, specs and everything it has to offer.

DESIGN & SPECS

As mentioned before, the Segway X260 Dirt eBike was built to be a performance dirt bike for all users. As such, the X260 is compact, lightweight, easy to master and features a low maintenance.

Since this is a fully electric-powered dirt bike, users can instantly forget about all the money and greasiness they’d have to bear in maintaining any gas-powered bike.

As the X260 features a compact design, it only measures 74.2 inches long by 30.7 inches wide by 41.3 inches tall (1885 × 780 × 1050 mm).

The X260 eBike is also built with a sturdy lightweight aluminum alloy frame that’s forged with quality craftsmanship and refined with a premium design. This way, it looks a bit different from most traditional dirt bikes, weighing only 121.3 lbs. (55 kg) – or 97.0 lbs. (44 kg) without its battery.

Its lightweight design allows fearless riders to easily power through tougher terrains that are still unknown to them.

The X260’s wheelbase measures exactly 49.8 inches (1265 mm) and the bike also comes equipped with a headlight as well as a brake light.

The length of the frame and the seat height is also adjustable to fit users of different heights and sizes.

Top Speed and Range – High-Rear Wheel Torque / High Torque Motor

The Segway X260 Dirt eBike was designed to keep up with everyone’s dreams, even with people’s wildest adventures. This means that even if your adventure has no limits, the X260 Dirt eBike can easily keep up.

With a top speed of 46.6 mph, the eBike can offer its users the ultimate dirt bike riding experience, featuring high-speed stability, agility, and a super-responsive communication between road and rider.

Its vigorous High-Rear Wheel Torque is a standard 48 rear sprocket teeth wheel that features a climbing slope up to 45º and a maximum rear wheel torque of 184.3 ft*lb.

This allows riders to pull off wheelies with ease while experiencing a smooth drive-train output, while also allowing riders to climb any stairs in an effortless way.

The X260 eBike’s High Torque Motor features a peak torque of 23.6 ft*lb with a maximum 5.400 rpm (rotations per minute), ultimately allowing its motor to operate up to 353ºF.

This is a very powerful motor, as it offers an acceleration that goes from 0 to 31 mph in just 4.02 seconds.

FOC (Field Oriented Controls) Vector Control System

The X260 eBike’s Field Oriented Controls stabilize and adapt to users’ riding habits. With an IP67 grade waterproof level for the eBike’s controller and IP65 rating for its battery, combined with a build made of aluminum alloy that incorporates heat dissipation, this bike is made for all off-road terrains.

The Primary Drive System integrates an HTD 8M belt of 22 inches, while the Secondary Drive System includes a 420 chain with 106 sections.

The eBike’s dual-drive system can enhance the overall torque power of its wheels, while also preventing the chain from dropping out.

Just like the smaller model (the X160), the Segway X260 Dirt eBike also comes equipped with a Swappable Rechargeable Lithium Battery that features a long-lasting battery capacity, allowing the bike to deliver up to 74.6 miles range in one single charge.
