I know nothing about these scooters so hopefully someone shares their knowledge if this is a deal.

I saw this on Woot too. Wondering how it compares to my Xiaomi m365. The motor seems to be more powerful at 300 watts (700 peak).

Bird ES1 is NOT Segway ES1. These are NOT foldable!

This does have a bell & rear/bottom led

I bought (what I assume to be the same model) from a bird auction as non-working. It looks just like this one. Mine is a Segway. It just does not have the folding mechanism or any segway badging. However, the manufacturer sticker on the bottom of the deck has says Segway with a Segway serial #. I repaired mine with Segway replacement parts and it works good as new.

Yes, all the initial ride sharing electric scooters are manufactured by segway/ninebot & branded Lime or Bird. Not being foldable for the retail/consumer market is a big deal. I can only assume these units are probably overproduced units, units from a cancelled contract, or units not to customer specs. Not a good deal when refurb ES-3 is $350 from newegg.

Segway has made progress with their licensed repair partners, but make sure there is a local shop. Else you have to ship the unit off to repair
