Xiaomi Ninebot Plus is official, priced at ¥3499 (~$514)

Xiaomi unveiled today its Ninebot Plus, a successor to 2015’s Ninebot Mini, a really impressive Segway-like vehicle that offers impressive speed, durability and ease of use.

In case most of you don’t remember, Ninebot acquired Segway (the American self-balancing scooter manufacturer) back in April 2015 with the help of Xiaomi, a major investor in Ninebot, so today it was only logical for the company to unveil its newest member of the family.
