Ninebot Z10 group purchase offer from Segway (for EUDM model)

Recommended Posts

I've got more than enough negative reactions about the pricing Segway gave me, so I won't be going forward with this order for now. If I can be of any help, please let me know.

They overpriced it for Europe, come on.. it's not fair from Segway's part.

You did your best to come up with a plan to help us, the community, but still give the man "a price" :P

I dont think £1425 (assuming you could fulfill 8+ orders) is a bad price personally, given full EU support for 2 years. Thats not much more than buying direct from China with all the risks and delays.

If I had the money available now I would go for it. Wheres all the negativity come from? Doesnt seem to be in this thread?

I'm kind of making my mind up upgrade to Z10.

I've found £1290 online offer at Fat Llama.

There's 1 year warranty, free UK shipping, and I did contact the seller, to ask regarding postage fees - in case of warranty covered service.

The seller did assure,that they will arrange postage for free as well, regarding that year of warranty...

I'm just considering that offer, as this is the best offer I could find so far.

I also think that @Planemo is right regarding the EU price.

Bearing in mind 2 years warranty the price sounds reasonable to me...

You do know the z10 is a different ride to other euc's in the way you handle it, you might not like it,,, when you thinking of buying one as i have both that you could try

I'd be pleased to have your support @stephen ...

I wish I could ask you questions, listen to your advices too, before I go for it.

I'm always fancy to go for  brand new devices, not the second hand.

This is why I'm consider Z10 for £1290, because I think I could manage it somehow, if I sell my E+ ... 

Unfortunately MSX is much more expensive, and the Z10's price is killer to me, so you can imagine, that anything above that, is a coffin nail to me.

Thank you very much.

Deffo take Stephen up on his kind offer first Artur, as he says you may not like it. The only real problem is that one cannot truly evaluate a Z until they have tried various tyre pressures and also ridden at speed (when the handling dynamics really changes compared to other EUC's, and even the Z's low speed handling).

I have settled at 20psi on mine, seems to be the best compromise between too firm to soak up the bumps and too soft to cause excessive tramlining.

I think they are great wheels and as I have mentioned before, look better than anything else out there at the moment (including the boxy MSX) :laughbounce2: :eff01bbbfc:

Thanks @Planemo .

I've had an opportunity to try both MSX and Z10 thanks to @stephen ...

I'm going get Z10 after today's experience!

I'm simply amazed by the feel of that wheel!

I will follow @stephen's advices and yours too, what the settings, tyre pressure, you know...

To ride it safe :)

Thank you.

The negativity came from a facebook group called Ninebot Z owners, in the comments. Nevertheless - I deleted the thread there. 

If people are interested, I'll contact Segway for the pieces we will buy. I'm also on the edge of buying one. I love it, but all the negativity towards it has me shaken. On the other hand... just look at it. But 20% come DOA. But it's a ninebot build quality and materials, and design ... But they're expensive ... you see whats going on inside my head ...

As you've noticed @George Iliev I were given opportunity to ride Z10 today, thanks to kindness of @stephen .

After tpday's experience, I'm certain there's no other wheel out there for me, but Z10 :)

I know - uneven path? :).., regarding buying & service ...

I've had the E+ for short time really, but I feel it can't fulfill my needs any longer :)

It's time for me to move on , then :)

If you concerned regarding Z10, what other wheel is on your target, then ? :)
