The Segway pioneered the 2-wheeled electric transportation, but for some reasons, it didn't take off the way its creators had hoped. However, it triggered the development of more similar machines and X-Robot is one new presence in this growing market.

We cannot fail to see how much Toyota Winglet the X-Robot vehicles have in them... we might be looking at some future patent infringement lawsuits here. However, it looks like X-Robot is a bit ahead of Toyota, at least as far as the commercial presence is concerned.
Their three i-Robots, LA, SC and BO look cool and seem quite a lot of fun to ride. We liked the seat on the BO model as it looked like a very nifty improvement over the basic standing design. These X-Robot vehicles can travel at speeds between 10 and 20 km/h (6-12 mph) and offer a 20-km (12 miles) range.

Just like in many similar cases with Chinese manufacturers, more detailed data is unavailable. However, if you're interested, you can check the X-Robot website and drop the guys a line. Winglet copycat or not, we liked these three little machines.
