Recently gaining traction in New Zealand, since being founded as recently as 2019, Segway Powersports is a subsidiary of the Segway- Ninebot Group, with its products being sold in more than 100 countries around the world.

Offering an extensive range of ATV and UTVs that start life at the company’s R&D centre in Seattle USA, machines are manufactured in China with the key focus on affordability, quality and safety – while incorporating the latest technology and good power delivery, backed by a 2-year comprehensive warranty.

On the safety front, one standout feature is the Telematics Box (T-BOX), which adds extra peace of mind by automatically alerting an emergency contact in the event of a serious collision or rollover. Additionally, the vehicles feature a smartphone app that allows remote activation, customisable driving settings, and real-time monitoring of various parameters like mileage and horsepower.

The machines are fitted with a stepless CVT transmission, multiple driving modes and front and rear diff locks.

Taking a brief look at the extensive ranges, the Snarler AT5 and AT6 ATVs offer a choice of single or dual seat options, in either a short or long wheelbase and switchable 2W or 4WD. The AT6 is aimed at those wanting a little more power with its single cylinder 570cc motor offering 44hp/48Nm compared to the AT5s, 499cc still delivering a credible 39hp/44Nm.

Both machines are fitted with a stepless CVT transmission, multiple driving modes and front and rear diff locks. Dependent on model, payloads are 270kg with towing capacity ranges from 400 to 612kg, with disc brakes acting on 12 or 14-inch wheel set ups fitted with 24 or 25-inch tyres. For ease of use, some models are fitted with electronic power steering (EPS), with three settings and all models are fitted with a front mounted 1130kg capacity winch.

For increased load capacity and versatility, the Fugleman UT10 UTV features a 1000cc engine delivering 105hp and 95Nm torque, alongside the option for 3 or 6-seat. With a load capacity of 680kg and a tow rating of 1134kg, the UT10 is obviously well suited to heavy-duty tasks around the farm, with the EPS with multiple driving modes and switchable 2WD/4WD making things easier for the operator.
