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.
Furthermore, the X260 eBike is also compatible with almost any bike parts you can think of, meaning that it can be easily refitted to your individual needs with endless possibilities. This means that riders can modify it and rebuild it to create the ultimate eBike that best fits their demands.
Its compact design integrates quite a few customizable bike parts, including an Adjustable Front Fork that’s compatible with almost all heavy level dirt bicycle accessories, an Intersect TR Suspension Multi-Link Hydraulic Structure which is protected by a Rear Fender (to extend the eBike’s TR Suspension’s lifespan) along with a Multi-Link Hydraulic Spring, a High-Rear Wheel Torque and a High Torque Motor (discussed ahead).
Furthermore, the Segway X260 Dirt eBike also features a Three-Way Battery Management System 2.0 (discussed further ahead), a FOC (Field Oriented Controls) Vector Control System that allows the eBike to automatically stabilize and adapt to users’ riding habits, and a Full Standard Electronic/Mechanical Throttle Control (found at the eBike’s handlebar) that comes equipped with a texture Silicone Rubber handle grip for a comfortable grip touch and precision response.
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.
This allows riders to confidently explore all off-road terrains, no matter if you’re looking to ride tight and twisty trails, fire trails, steep rock or even steep hills.
Dual Drive System
The Segway X260 Dirt eBike also comes equipped with a dual-drive system that is made up of a Primary Drive System and a Secondary Drive System.
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.
BATTERY & BATTERY LIFE
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.
“Partnering with Panasonic, the battery provider of Tesla, Segway Dirt eBike secures an optimal level of battery power to deliver 74.6 miles in one single charge.”
Its Rechargeable Lithium Battery also supports Quick Charging, meaning it only takes you 4 hours to fully recharge it from 0% back to a full charge.
It’s also important to note that the Segway X260 Dirt eBike comes with one extra/additional Swappable Rechargeable Lithium Battery, which ultimately allows riders to ride the X260 even further.
“Turn-key” Data Connection
What makes Segway Dirt eBike smart is that it can be paired with the Segway-Ninebot App for riders to track their riding stats and route.
The App offers a total of two smart “Riding Modes” to suit the needs of riders at different levels.
The “Sport Mode” is for those craving for speed, while the “EP Mode” was programmed for those in need for range.
The Segway X260 Dirt eBike is a compact, lightweight, affordable, easy to maintain, learn and master eco-friendly electric-powered dirt bike that offers superior off-road performance for all user types.
Furtheremore, the X260 Dirt eBike can also be connected to the Ninebot App for riders to track their riding stats and route via one of the App’s two different smart “Riding Modes”.
The X260 eBike is currently available in 4 different color-models (for its center frame): Black, Silver, Blue and Red.
