- Segway Powersports has released its highly anticipated, aggressively styled, road legal buggy onto the UK’s streets and trails.
- Combining aerodynamic design, extreme performance and cutting-edge technology, the company claims the SEGWAY VILLAIN is the ultimate all-terrain side-by-side leisure vehicle (SVV)
The Villain is made to turn heads, both out on the trails and in urban settings; living up to its name with sleek styling that’s as elegant as it is aggressive. The design purposefully emulates that of an apex predator ready to pounce, with an intimidating front profile and an arched side silhouette. Exposed engineering and a steel framework accented with pops of striking colour complete the uber-cool look.
Equipped with remote reservoirs actuating the front and rear shocks, adjustable dual speed compression and rebound that can adapt to any terrain and driving style, the Villain is the perfect machine for an adventurous outdoor lifestyle. It can tackle the toughest off-road trails, blast across the beach or cruise through green lanes with ease.
With the 1000cc, twin-cylinder, four-stroke engine delivering a maximum power of 105hp and 93.5Nm of torque, the Villain more than holds its own in the SSV category. It offers excellent low speed performance across trickier terrain, while full throttle results in rapid and thrilling acceleration over smoother ground.
The Villain features dual A-arm, front suspension with 400mm wheel travel, and rear suspension with 450mm wheel travel. Coupled with genre-leading ground clearance of 14.6”, it can easily attack even the most undulating of landscapes.
Driver comfort is paramount, with an adjustable seat, inclinable steering wheel and smart EPS that can be switched between three settings in transit. The sport, comfort and standard modes suit differing drivers and road conditions. An LCD dashboard with a large touchscreen display provides essential data at your fingertips.
The Villain is compatible with the Segway Powersports App, which is the first of its kinds in the industry. It allows users to access real-time data from their vehicle through the Smart Commanding System (SCS), including service reminders, fuel levels, anti-theft tracking and remote unusual movement warnings. It can even send an SOS warning to an emergency contact in the event of an accident.
The Segway Villain comes in two variants, the SX10 and SX10 W (wide model). It is available in two striking colour ways, Electric White/Red or Bold Black/Green. Prices start at £17,999. To more information and to locate your nearest dealer, visit https://www.segwaypowersports.uk/
