Did You know if Segway also developed a hydrogen-powered motorcycle?

~Next Mean~ Environmentally friendly vehicle developments are not only dominated to be done by automotive manufacturers. The manufacturer such Segway, which we previously knew as a self-balancing two-wheeled electric vehicles manufacturer is now also starting to venture into the development of low-emission motorcycles.

Now under the new parent company from China Ninebot, Segway is reportedly starting to expand its production range, following the production of electric bicycles and go-karts, now Segway is designing as an electric-hydrogen hybrid motorcycle called the Segway Apex H2 which has a design visualization representing future motorcycles.

The futuristic style two-wheeled vehicle is powered by hydrogen fuel cells, which is said to be debuting in 2023 and is expected to be a unique product in the future. It is also mentioned as a further development of the Segway Apex which had previously introduced in 2019 and appeared at the 2020 Consumer Electronics Show (CES).

To achieve these expectations, it can be seen from a number of features that the company offers for the Segway Apex H2. First, the frame looks redesigned by adding hydrogen power. To be precise, the bike is packed with hydrogen cylinders that are likely to be refillable. The details are not yet available, considering that this motorcycle is still in the early stages of development.

Ninebot revealed that, this first hydrogen-electric motorcycle will have excellent performance, and very low fuel consumption. It is estimated that the maximum power can reach 60 Kw (80 hp) and can accelerate from 0 to 100 kph (62 mph) in just 4 seconds. But the maximum speed that can be achieved is reportedly limited only 150 kph (93 mph).

It is also mentioned that the Apex H2 is still loyal to adopting the superbike style. Overall has an aggressive and assertive design. It looks sporty with a stretched full fairing. It also equipped with horizontal headlights that are integrated with the windshield and front body. The rear is more minimalist to give the impression of a future vehicle. And of course both lighting is already applied an advance LED technology.

The middle body bulges densely encasing a large-dimensional battery as well as a special hydrogen tube. In some parts painted a fluorescent yellow color that reflects as the future vehicles and also found on each side of the fairing, end of the subframe and wheel lip. While the rim is neatly covered by a black cover. It's not clear how the braking system works because the images published are still prototypes.

Furthermore, the Apex H2 is supported by the use of an abnormal suspension that relies on one side swing arm to support both wheels. The system is similar to the Rotationally Advanced Design Development (RADD) that was used on the prototype of the Yamaha GTS 1000 and Morpho concept.

Its hybrid technology has generated so much interest since it was first released that people are struggling to get their hands on a single unit of this vehicle when the company was officially opened orders for the Segway Apex H2 from April 1, 2021 to April 30, 2021. The company planned for mass production soon which is not only to explore new clean energy applications, but also to help the country achieve its “autonomy from coal” goal.
If the Apex H2 could be realized soon, it will be the world's first hybrid two-wheeled vehicle that uses a hydrogen fuel cell combination with electric battery. This is a true revolution of the company under the Xiaomi umbrella. This Chinese private electronics company acquired Segway in 2015 with a total investment of no less than $80 million at the time. 
While Ninebot is a team of robotic technicians from China that focuses on the development of artificial intelligence and environmental protection. Some of Ninebot's assets belonged to Xiaomi after they started a crowdfunding project in 2013.

Kept spur your adrenaline on the power of the two-wheeled monster and stay alive with true safety riding. May God will forgive Your sins and so does the cops...... *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | TRENDHUNTER | INSIDEHOOK ]
