Costco sells this Bugatti Electric Scooter for $899.99. Scroll down for photos. Costco has a rotating supply of electric scooters and bikes & this is the latest model. I was surprised to see this because it is several hundred dollars more than the Segway Ninebot G30LP, without extra features. I went diving through the specifications of both electric scooter’s & they have similar specifications all around. The Segway has slightly bigger tires (9 inch vs 10 inch), which would probably make for a smoother ride. If you are doing electric scooter shopping, I would highly recommend the Segway over the Bugatti. I don’t know how popular of an item this will be at Costco, so I expect to see it on sale in the near future. Anyways, here are a few more details about this Costco Bugatti Electric Scooter…..

Costco Bugatti 9.0 Electric Scooter
I got a chance to see both this display and the Segway Ninebot MAX G30LP inside Costco. They are roughly the same size & travel the same distance. They have similar specifications in regard to power, top speed & max weight as well as front and rear lights. I would honestly opt for the Segway, also because it has over 200 reviews with a 4.4 / 5 rating. The Bugatti currently has 0 reviews and will run you $900+ as opposed to the $679 for the Segway on Costco.com (cheaper in-store if you can find it). I think these will be going on sale relatively soon because Costco will not want to hold this inventory. If you really want a Bugatti, I would wait.

The Segway struggles with hills and has multiple quality issues (buyers report dead on arrival, plastic buttons falling off, battery abnormal discharging after a couple of months, amongst other issues). Besides the more powerful motor for the hilly roads, the hope is that the Bugatti quality of manufacturing will lead to higher reliability.
I wish Costco Fan had included more research in its article 🙁
Sorry David. Unfortunately I can’t afford to buy all the products I see at Costco. I always try to check out the display models closely, to see the quality of the build and the product itself. I wish I could test drive them both but that wasn’t possible. I re-checked all the reviews for both products and they have the same rating with the same complaints. Both products have stellar reviews as well as a few reviews that complain about quality control. Based on that and the fact I’ve seen the Segway on sale, I would still choose the Segway as my first purchase. By all means, I would love to hear your review on both products if you own the both of them. That would be the best way to get an authentic review of both products.
The Bugatti’s motor is twice as powerful as Segway’s. That difference in power will likely not make a difference in top speed due to the likelyhood of max speed allowed of electric mobility devices on bike paths. But when going up a hill, the difference in motor speed will definitely make a difference
True… BTW i completely disagree with this article opinion, totally off base…
Fair enough. Like I said above, I can’t afford to purchase everything I see at Costco (I wish I could), so I was combing through reviews as well as inspecting the quality of the build inside the store. I would still opt for the Segway based on the reviews and the drastic price difference (when the Segway is on sale)
Thanks Tee-Bone. That does make up for the increased cost in the price, especially if you live in a hilly area.
