Default self balancing scooter

Anyone seen these? I just got 1 for myself, loads of fun lol. Going to be the main christmas item I think. I can't find a decent price for selling them as nobody pays tax in the UK other than me lol but might be good for some americans.

Google showing 8,100 searches for 'self balancing scooter' in May,40,500 in June and 135,000 in July. Can't see August yet.

I saw some dude yesterday on one on my high road. He looked cool man!!!

I stopped and was looking - I was impressed

I wondered what it was, now I know

If I did get one, I would want to know about servicing - ie. tyres and battery etc.

Looks very cool especially when you first see one in person, thought about buying one but then I feel like I would get bored of it pretty quick & not use it so dont think i would get one not for a while atleast

There are definately easier ways of getting about, electric scooters and the like, certainly interesting Google figures on how many people have been searching for them, they are definitely going to be in the younger age groups. Teen's, 20's, and onwards, after that the idea of broken joints comes to mind!, they are of course for sale on eBay already.

Just been checking these out and you can get them for less than half that price dbhana, tho' that's from Hong Kong/China and of course with DHL delivery to avoid the obligatory 4 weeks delivery time from that part of the world.

9-10 MPH, but that'd be way too scary going that fast on a scooter like that

I personally own one but just can't get the hang of it lol

It's Alibaba for the Chinese one of course dbhana, the prices are in dollars so of course a fair bit less for UK pounds. Quite a few buyers are going and ordering them straight from Alibaba and the Hong Kong sellers, because their listings are showing as the cheapest on eBay, Amazon are dearest if course. There are already tons of listings for them on eBay especially.

I can't find a good enough price to sell them as generic and don't have the spare $$$ to start a brand now. Agree they'll be huge though

Whatever you do, don't buy the IO hawk. The company is run by enormous, immature d-bags and they're basically just knock offs

Hovertrax is supposed to be the original (they have the patent)
