A fuel cell converts gaseous hydrogen into electrical energy, which is used in the bike’s powertrain. Look no further than the Segway Apex H2, the company’s newest two-wheeled vehicle for evidence that the corporation is no longer what it once was.
The Apex H2 motorcycle design has just been introduced by the brand, which is now owned by Chinese robotics startup Ninebot. The motorcycle, which will be powered by a hybrid hydrogen-electric powertrain, will be capable of achieving a maximum speed of 93 mph, making it the fastest Segway of all time.
Segway Apex H2 Ambitions and Specifications
The Segway Apex H2 features a futuristic cyberpunk style that wouldn’t look out of place in a Tron reboot. Bold curves, angular, and an eccentric one-sided front fork characterize the shiny black and white motorcycle. The neon-lit highlights that attract your attention to the car’s wheels and sleek engine bay are the most striking feature of the design.
The engine configuration also retains its own. According to New Atlas, the Segway Apex H2 will have a hybrid powertrain that will turn gaseous hydrogen into electrical energy through a special fuel cell. The hydrogen-electric system, according to Ninebot, can produce over eighty horsepower and propel the motorcycle from zero to 60 mph in less than four seconds.
Even though it’s slower than the Apex concept’s quoted top speed of 124 mph, the initial Segway—yes, the notorious two-wheel personal vehicle preferred by mall cops—topped out at 10 mph, that’s impressive. Of course, there is one significant distinction between the two vehicles: The Apex H2 will be one of the few concept cars available for purchase.
The bike will go into development in 2023, with shipments starting the following year, according to Ninebot. The H2 will enter a diverse Segway lineup that features a Wall-E-style mechanized chair on wheels and a high-performance, Porsche-approved go-kart that can go 25 mph when it eventually goes on sale. The rebranding and offerings are exciting to see and may make the company more prominent in the marketplace.
The following parameters have been put on it by Segway: 60 kW (80 hp), which sounds about right, 150 km/h (90 mph), which is an uninspiring top speed, and a sub-four-second 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) time, which also sounds about right. The other important number is CN¥69,999, which converts to around US$10,700 and seems ridiculously low for such a groundbreaking car.
