Our Range of Segway Electric Scooters
As Australia's largest electric scooter retailer, we have a wide selection of Segway scooters to choose from:
Segway Ninebot Max G30L: We thought they couldn't do any better, but they did better! Segway has again upgraded and improved their highly popular Ninebot Max eScooter to increase the power of the brushless direct current motor. Paired with improved shock absorbers and upgraded self-healing flat-free tyres, the Ninebot Max Generation 2 is splash resistant, meaning you can ride through rain and puddles without risking damage to your scooter. The larger 10" wheels make for a comfortable experience that riders love, particularly on longer or rougher journeys.
The multifunctional display gives you a headsup on the status of your Ninebot's battery and speed, but with the included charging cables, you'll be able to recharge quickly and easily - whether you're at the office, or on another one of your adventures. With a top speed between 25-30kph, and a range of 40km, your Segway Ninebot is perfect for commuting between home and your office. On arrival at your location, the Ninebot Max folds up for easy storage in your car, on public transport, or in a closet until you're ready to ride again.
Segway Ninebot eKickscooter F25: The Ninebot KickScooter F series is feature rich yet cost effective and offers everything you need in one product: an extended 20km range, a max speed of 25km/h, large 10” tires, foldable design and Bluetooth security lock to keep your Kickscooter safe.
The F Series has a regenerative braking system that turns the scooter into an electric vehicle powered by electricity and recycled energy from riding. Energy will be collected from regenerative braking and distributed when you need a boost.
The Smart-BMS system, which is developed based on the safety management experience of 300 million lithium batteries and has undergone 7 years of technological iteration and upgrading, has enabled the lithium battery to have a longer service life, safer discharge and more accurate power display.
Segway Kids Zing E10: Looking for the ultimate kids electric scooter? The Zing E10 is safe, stylish and absolutely exhilarating for kids aged 8-14 years (up to 60kg). Sit back and relax while you watch them zoom around outside all weekend, or even replace their traditional bike transport to school.
The Segway Zing is designed for standard terrain including flat, bumps, grass and gravel, with spring loaded shock absorption, and with both mechanical and electric brakes stopping is a breeze. Top speed is an adrenaline-pumping 16kph, but speed modes can be set depending on child age, preference, confidence and parental anxiety. The Zing E10 comes with a raft of safety features, and is aimed at slightly older children. For your younger kids, take a look at the Zing 8.
Segway Kids Zing E8: Now the whole family can enjoy riding e scooters together, as your younger riders learn the basics of handling an electric scooter.

Safety, Cruise and Turbo mode allow you and your little rider to choose the best setting for their confidence and courage. Plus this Segway scooter is equipped with anti-skid tyres, both hand and foot brakes, and spring shock absorbers. The aerospace-grade aluminium alloy body means this scooter can handle anything that's thrown at it, and being just 10cm off the ground, its low centre of gravity will reduce the risk of high speed crashes. Rest assured, the Zing E8 folds easily to fit into your car for transport to your local park, or best friend's house.

Victorian law stipulates that a motorised scooter cannot travel faster than 10km/h. Additionally, a motorised scooter must have a maximum power output of 200 watts or less. Electric scooters that do not meet these stipulations can be used on private property, but not in public.
If an electric scooter fails to meet these requirements, it is classified as a motor vehicle. If classified as a motor vehicle, the electric scooter must be registered, and the rider must have a valid motorcycle license. Please see VicRoads details here.
In South Australia, it is illegal to ride an electric scooter on the road, footpath, bicycle track, or anywhere other than private property. Under South Australian law, electric scooters are considered motor vehicles, with the relevant SA Transport law explaining “operating a motor vehicle requires a driver’s licence, registration and compulsory third party insurance. As these devices [electric scooters] do not meet the safety standards under the Australian Design Rules they are not eligible for registration.”
Currently, Western Australian laws via the motor vehicle licensing branch stipulate that electric scooters must travel at 10km/h or less, and “must not be used on footpaths and paths designed for shared use by pedestrians and bicycles.” In Western Australia any unlicensed electric scooters may only be used on private property. These rules apply to petrol and electrical powered scooters and mini motorcycles.
A motorised scooter cannot travel faster than 10km/h in Tasmania, and must have a power output of no more than 200 watts. If these stipulations are not met, the electric scooter is deemed to be a motor vehicle. However, electric scooters cannot be registered as motor vehicles in Tasmania as they fail to meet the minimum safety requirements. As such, any e-scooter that has a power output of more than 200 watts can only be used on private property in Tasmania. Please see info from the Tasmanian department of Transport here.
In the Northern Territory, a motorised foot scooter is typically a wheeled recreation device equipped with an engine or motor of some description. Motorised scooters with a power output greater than 200 watts are defined as motor vehicles in the NT Motor Vehicles Act. As motor vehicles, motorised scooters used on roads, or in public places, need to be registered and ridden by licensed riders. However, motorised scooters are not designed or manufactured to comply with registration requirements and national safety standards for road vehicles, such as Australian Design Rules (ADRs). Therefore, they cannot be granted registration for on-road use and may not be ridden on public roads or places open to the public (including footpaths, bike paths, carparks, etc.
