Segway Ninebot

Ninebot and Segway - The same thing?

The story about Segway and Ninebot is an actual drama. The two-wheeled self-balancing scooter was invented in the USA, but the inventors had some challenges regarding making the new form of electric transportation profitable. Meanwhile, in China, a company called Ninebot produced a similar product, but since Segway already owned the worldwide patent for the self-balancing scooter, this was not well received in America, and they filed a lawsuit against Ninebot. But how did Ninebot handle this? They bought Segway and merged the two companies. So that is the reason why our self-balancing scooter is called both Ninebot and Segway.
