Segway i2 and x2

As predicted earlier by FCC document releases, Segway today unvelied the latest in its personal transports, the i2 and x2. They both feature a new (if still familiar) design that promises better features and performance. One of these is LeanSteer, which lets you tilt the frame and handlebar while turning as a more natural way of changing direction. More important given the city-dweller segment is the InfoKey system: in addition to giving drivers a convenient way of locking their Segways when they step inside, the key fob also lets you keep track of battery life, performance, and security whether it's attached to the Segway or not. The i2 is the standard commuter model and retails for a not insignificant $4995; if you need off-road tires, you can get the x2 model for $500 more. There are also additional packages if you need cargo space or other features.
