segway announces sporty villain sxs updated fugleman ut10

Segway has taken the wraps off its 2023 machines for the US market, including an updated Fugleman UT10 platform and three new side-by-sides in the sporty Villain lineup.

The Villain family includes the Villain SX10 WX ($19,299 MSRP), which is the big boy of the family, at 72 inches wide. There’s also the 64-inch SX10 X ($18,299 MSRP), and for buyers who want to save money, there’s the 64” Villain SX10 E ($16,899 MSRP). All Villain models have a 1000cc four-stroke parallel twin engine, making 105 hp and 65 ft-lb of torque. The SX10 WX and SX10 X also come with a 10.4-inch smart touchscreen interface, and all models will interface with Segway’s Smart Moving app. The app serves as a remote starter and can provide real-time information about the vehicle’s performance (speed, acceleration, power output, fuel economy), and even offer safety alerts to contacts via text message in case of a rollover or collision.

Both the SX10 X and SX10 E have 14 inches of ground clearance, while the larger SX10 WX has 15 inches.

As for the new Segway Fugleman UT10 X ($16,699 MSRP), it’s aimed towards the utility market. It has the same 1000cc parallel twin as the Villain series; Segway says it’s more powerful than any other 1000cc UTV on the market. It also has the same 10.4-inch smart touchscreen interface, and comes with 2500-lb towing capacity, 1000-lb bed capacity and a 4500-lb winch. Same goes for the Fugleman UT10 E ($14,399 MSRP), which also has that same parallel twin engine but doesn’t have the fancy-pants touchscreen, to keep costs down.

The new machines are supposed to be delivered to dealerships in December of 2022. See more details in Segway’s press release below:

Features and Benefits

Unlike other comparable models on the market, the Villain and Fugleman series come standard with several features, including an adjustable, premium cut-and-sewn driver’s seat with contoured seatbacks and Segway branding embroidery, electric power steering (EPS), a 10.4-inch smart touchscreen (optional on the Villain SX10 E and Fugleman UT10 E models), Smart Moving APP (SMA), tilt steering, roof, and doors.

The EPS can be switched on-the-fly to one of three settings. With standard, comfort, and sport settings selectable through the SMA, the ride is customizable for different drivers, terrain, and road conditions.

Engine

The 1,000cc, four-stroke, parallel twin dual-overhead camshaft (DOHC) engine featured in the Villain SX10 and Fugleman UT10 features an advanced fuel injection and ignition system along with a carefully optimized, long duration, high-lift camshaft that ensures excellent adaptability to high and low temperatures and provides excellent power even at very high altitudes.

Furthermore, by utilizing a Dual Oil Column Piston Cooling system, the 1000cc engine will remain cool under the harshest of riding conditions and ensures long- term mechanical durability. The water and oil heat exchanger cooling system improves the reliability of power output under tough off-road conditions.

Smart Touchscreen and Electronic Gauge Cluster

Coming standard on the Villain SX10 X and SX10 WX as well as the Fugleman UT10 X, a 10.4-inch smart touchscreen allows the rider to interact with audio/phone functions, maps, and live telemetry. When a sound bar is paired with the vehicle, the rider can seamlessly control the audio/phone call-answering function. An all-terrain navigator has the mapping ability needed to stay on track and communication technology to stay in touch while exploring off-road. Furthermore, riders can monitor real-time data, such as speed, acceleration, torque, and roll and pitch. An electronic gauge cluster indicates gas levels and mileage to empty, displays the EPS mode and four-wheel drive and locking differential, and features an odometer.

Smart Commanding System

All models feature the brand-new Smart Commanding System (SCS), consisting of Segway’s Smart Moving APP. Utilizing the cutting-edge internet of vehicles (IoV) to help you blaze a trail and explore the wild, you can access the real-time data of your vehicle through SCS.

The SMA offers the following features:

  • Airlock: Via Bluetooth, you can activate and start your vehicle remotely using your smartphone as the key.
  • Driver setting: Customize your vehicle for a personalized fit to enhance your ride.
  • Safety alerts: In the event of a collision or rollover, the app will automatically send an SMS text to your emergency contact with your GPS coordinates.
  • Real-time data: View real-time vehicle performance data with speed, acceleration, torque and power output, mileage and more.
