"The Rad2Go is not a Segway. It does not contain a gyroscope, and uses four wheels to balance itself. Riders stand upright on the scooter, however... The device is significantly cheaper, however, between $1,000 and $1,200 for the first 24-volt models, which will be sold to mass merchants, such as tourist-minded rental agencies. Global's factory will ship 1,400 units this Monday to its first customer, Wang said. A more expensive, higher-powered 36-volt model will begin selling in April for between $1,500 and $2,000. Amazon.com's Human Transporter Store sells Segways for $4,495 plus shipping and taxes."
