Ms. Navarre from Baton Rouge Louisiana with her husband Andrew and daughters Marcelle and Lynette gave an honest response.

“We live in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and the distances there between points of distance are pretty wide and it probably isn’t a good Segway application, “But one of my daughters is a Louisiana State University and she could probably use it. The campus is about three miles wide at it’s widest and you can’t move a car around once you get it there.”

Atkins states, ” This market of almost 11 million students in the 18-24 age bracket is a market worthy of Segway notice. The impact of a major media and marketing campaign might result in huge sales.

The new pricing structure on a $4,999 purchase of a new Segway HT 180 with the minimum monthly fixed payment would be $125 (2.5% of the 4995.00 purchase). It would take approximately 60 months to pay off this item. Under $5 a day is what your new Segway will cost.

You will be paying about $2500 in interest in that 5-year period, however. If you saved up for the purchase instead, it would only cost about $85 a month when spread over the same 5 years. That's only about $2.75 a day.
