With high hopes and lowered expectations, Brentwood CEO looks to expand market for Segway

When the company launched in 2003, Kamen predicted its factory would soon be pumping out 10,000 machines a week. As of 2011, slightly more than 80,000 units had been sold, Brown said. The company sold roughly 8,000 Segways last year, he said, and had revenue of about $60 million. In its efforts to quickly raise those figures, the company will release a new, three-wheeled scooter and an updated version of the i2, its flagship model, by the end of the year.
