The firm in a recent statement announced that the vehicle weighs approximately 330.7 pounds and it can cruise at a top speed of 24.8 miles per hour. It is also considered as an easy to drive option, all thanks to its automatic balancing capabilities. the prototype can travel about 43.5 miles before its battery needs to be charged.

The firm is also set to release another set of e-scooter known as NineBotKickScooter Air T15. This is owned by both Segway and Ninebot.
