Straight out of the paper, both Segway X160 and X260 dirt electric bikes won’t differ much in terms of physical features. Although they look similar physically, there is a slight difference such as added headlights, increased wheel diameter and increased dimensions in the case of Segway X260. Front suspension is supported by dual forks in the case of X260 but it is not a big deal.
Let us dig into the technical specifications of X160 and X260 as physical specifications had little or no difference.
|Battery||48V 20AH Lithium-Ion||60V 32AH Lithium-Ion|
|Motor||300W Brushless motor||700W Brushless motor|
|Max Speed||31.1 mph (50 km/h)||46.6 mph (75 km/h)|
|Torque||164.2 ft-lb||184.3 ft-lb|
|Mileage||40.4 mile (65 km)||74.6 mile (120 km)|
|Charge Time||3-4 Hours||4-5 Hours|
When it comes to technical features, X260 is far superior (expected due to its price variation) to X160. Version X260 is powered by a powerful motor and battery with a torque of 184.3 ft-lb helping it to reach a max speed of 75km/ph comfortably. The mileage of X260 which is 120km is very impressive considering the charging time of just 4 hours.
Both X160 and X260 are powered by fast charging batteries
Though technically X160 seems less powerful, this eBike is apt for beginners and considering the cost (saves you $1500) X160 is powerful in its own field of competitors.
Both these electric bikes are capable of accelerating from 0-31mph in just 4.01s which is very impressive.
Segway Dirt eBike X160 vs X260: Which one to consider?
Most of the features are the same and both of these electric bikes are manufactured by Segway. So choosing one among these two comes to a simple choice.
If you are a beginner in dirt biking or if you are tight on budget or if you are purchasing it for your hobby, choose Segway X160. If you are looking for a powerful dirt bike for racing or stunts and have had experience with dirt bikes in the past, go with Segway X260.
If you ask me personally, I would go with X160 because I am a beginner in this field and X160 has everything I need to get started
