Americans know Segway as the transportation of choice for tourists and mall cops. But ever since the company became part of China’s Ninebot, it’s been hard at work rolling out more futuristic scooters and associated mobility gear. That includes the radical new motorcycle seen here, called the Apex H2. Revealed last week, Segway promises to put it into production.
