The Segway SuperScooter GT2 Electric Scooter boasts an impressive range of 90 km or 56 miles, as claimed by the manufacturer. However, as with any range estimate provided by a manufacturer, it is important to note that this is likely based on riding in economy mode at a conservative speed in near-perfect conditions.
In real-world testing, the range experienced was quite different. In a test conducted by Max, the scooter achieved a range of 43 km or 27 miles with 3% battery remaining. This is about half of Segway’s estimate and highlights the fact that range can vary greatly depending on a variety of variables such as rider weight, weather conditions, and riding style.
Max, who weighed 80 kg or 176 lb at the time of testing, rode the scooter in cool weather with a temperature of 13 ºC or 55 ºF. His average ride speed was 49 km/h or 30 mph and for the majority of the ride, he was going full throttle in Sport mode. It is important to note that this type of riding drains the battery much faster than a more relaxed pace.
Despite the range discrepancy, the Segway SuperScooter GT2 Electric Scooter still impresses with its top speed of 69 km/h or 43 mph, as reported by the GT2 speedometer. This matches the manufacturer’s claims. Additionally, Segway claims that the GT2 goes from 0 to 30 mph in 3.9 seconds, which was not measured during this test but the acceleration at full throttle was reported as incredibly strong.
It’s important to note that the range and performance of electric scooters can vary depending on a variety of factors and should always be taken into consideration when making a purchasing decision.
Segway SuperScooter GT2 Braking System Review
The Segway SuperScooter GT2 Electric Scooter is equipped with a powerful hydraulic disc brake system that ensures exceptional braking strength in even the most demanding driving conditions. The GT series features 0.8-inch front and rear dual pistons, a 5.5-inch diameter hydraulic disc brake, and a 0.1-inch perforated brake pad. These components work together to provide exceptional braking power that is unmatched in its class.
The GT2 can stop from 15.0 mph in just 9.4 feet, making it one of the most powerful stopping scooters on the market. This is a significant improvement over other scooters in its class and is made possible by the advanced design and technology of the hydraulic disc brake system.
The hydraulic disc brake system works by using fluid pressure to apply force to the brake pads, which in turn clamp down on the disc rotor. This creates friction, which slows the wheel and ultimately brings the scooter to a stop. The use of dual pistons and a perforated brake pad further enhances the system’s stopping power by increasing the amount of force applied to the rotor.
The GT2’s hydraulic disc brake system is also designed to be highly durable and resistant to wear and tear. The brake pad is made of a high-quality, perforated material that is designed to withstand high temperatures and resist fading. The dual-piston design also ensures that the brake system remains in good working condition for a longer period of time.
In summary, the Segway SuperScooter GT2 Electric Scooter’s hydraulic disc brake system is designed to provide exceptional stopping power, durability, and resistance to wear and tear. This advanced brake system ensures that the GT2 can stop quickly and safely in even the most demanding driving conditions, making it one of the most powerful and reliable scooters on the market.
The Segway SuperScooter GT2 Electric Scooter is equipped with a unique feature that sets it apart from other scooters on the market: self-sealing tires. The GT series features 11-inch by 3.6-inch tubeless tires that have been designed to provide ultimate road-gripping capacity, as well as a self-sealing function that significantly reduces the risk of punctures.
Self-sealing tires are specially designed to prevent and repair punctures while the vehicle is in motion. They work by incorporating a sealant into the tire that can quickly seal small punctures as they occur. The sealant is typically a liquid or gel that is distributed throughout the tire and is activated by the pressure of the air inside the tire.
When a puncture occurs, the sealant is forced out of the puncture and into the surrounding rubber. The sealant then immediately hardens, creating a barrier that prevents air from escaping. This allows the tire to continue running without significant loss of pressure, and without the need for a repair.
One of the biggest advantages of self-sealing tires is that they can reduce the risk of punctures and provide a safer, more reliable ride. With the GT2’s self-sealing tires, you won’t have to worry about getting a flat tire on your way to work or running out of air on a long trip. You can simply continue riding, knowing that the sealant inside your tires will take care of any small punctures that may occur.
Additionally, Self-sealing tires are also beneficial for the environment, as they reduce the amount of waste generated by traditional tires. It also eliminates the need to replace tires as frequently, reducing the overall cost of ownership.
In review, the Segway SuperScooter GT2 Electric Scooter is equipped with a unique feature that sets it apart from other scooters on the market: self-sealing tires. The GT series features 11-inch by 3.6-inch tubeless tires with a self-sealing function, providing an ultimate road-gripping capacity and reducing the risk of punctures regardless of road conditions. The self-sealing tires are not only beneficial for the rider but also for the environment.
The Segway SuperScooter GT2 Electric Scooter offers a variety of speed modes that allow riders to customize their riding experience to their specific needs and preferences.

Want to know how fast can an e-scooter go? Behold the brand new Segway SuperScooter GT2 that Has a Top Speed of 70KM Per Hour!
It has been a long time since Segway first introduced its famous standing scooter. Now it appears that the company is focused on all other modes of transport, from hoverboards and e-skates to single-wheel transport and electric scooters. Behold Segway Superscooter GT2 which can hit top speed at 70km per hour! That’s really, really fast for an electric scooter, no? It is way faster than my Dyu D3 electric bike!
Segway SuperScooter GT2 Has a Top Speed of 70KM Per Hour
So far, electric scooters appear to be the most promising of the bunch of brand new electric-powered mobile transport. In fact, they are already widely used as a mode of transportation in major cities worldwide. With a number of utilitarian models already in its lineup, the company is focusing on recreational riding with the introduction of the Segway SuperScooter GT2.
Don’t forget to wear your helmet!
Of course, by recreational riding, we mean riding extremely fast at 70KM per hour. Is this too quick for an electric scooter? We’re moving quickly enough that we’re not sure how legal this will be where you live. But if you live in Malaysia the top speed limit for an electric scooter is 25KM per hour. Of course, there are already a number of high-speed electric scooters in the wild, and people have been riding them all over, so we’re guessing you’ll be able to get away with riding this around most of your city.
0 to 48KM per Hour in 3.9 Seconds
The Segway SuperScooter GT2 is powered by dual 1,500-watt electric motors that propel the machine from standstill to 30 mph in just 3.9 seconds and up to 70KM per hour. That’s right, this thing accelerates at the same rate as some mopeds. Under the hood a huge 1,512 Wh battery powers the motors. Amazingly, the battery is capable of providing a range of 90KM, which should be more than enough for the majority of people’s daily commutes. Heck with that mileage you can even afford multiple pit stops in between. While it is unlikely to cover that many miles if driven constantly at top speed, it should get you to a lot of places without paying a premium for gas.
Segway SuperScooter GT2 Has 90KM of Mileage
You will have more than enough juice for your daily commute
The battery features a multi-layer cooling system that ensures you’re never in danger of overheating, even on long, sustained rides, while an advanced BMS system with ten protection functions ensures the battery cells’ longevity, allowing you to continue using your scooter for an extended period of time without replacing the batteries.
Hydraulic Brakes and Shocks!
The Segway SuperScooter GT2 features a double-wishbone front suspension and a trailing-arm rear suspension, with 15 levels of hydraulic shocks on each end to ensure a smooth ride even on imperfect city streets, while front and rear hydraulic brakes with double pistons and 5.5-inch ventilation discs provide serious stopping power when you need it. It features large 11-inch tubeless tyres that allow for effortless gliding through urban terrain, while the all-new dynamic traction control system automatically adjusts the torque between the two motors to maximise traction on rough trails and slippery roads.
Is it for you?
Many e-scooters in the high performance category can look and feel a little rough around the edges, with a function over form design philosophy. There’s definitely a market for that, for the enthusiasts looking for the most performance per dollar. And those products really do push the limits of electric scooter performance.
But the GT2 seems to be trying to attract a different kind of audience. Compared to other high performance scooters around 4000, it doesn’t have the largest battery or the highest top speed, but most of us don’t need those kinds of specs anyway.
What the GT2 has to offer is a more holistic and well-rounded experience for the rider with all its unique quality of life and safety features – without skimping on performance that most riders can reasonably appreciate. All of that packaged in an aesthetically pleasing design with exceptional fit and finish.
The SuperScooter GT2 is a fast and powerful street cruiser, a daily driver that’s more than powerful enough for weekend thrill rides. And for some, probably the best looking scooter at this price point.
So if you’re looking to throw 4000 at an electric scooter, the GT2 is absolutely worth considering.
