The next level is here

  • No increased range means no pre-order for me although I am very interested in the new motor and the supposed increase in "smoothness." If that mean less pushback than that could be a real improvement. I won't be buying a + for a while though. Also I assume the new footpads will be usable on the current gen so that will be a nice upgrade for my board. If only we could swap batteries as would take care of the range problem.

  • @Seekwence Ultimately because that would be a flawed business model - the money spent into development of whatever is new for this board plus general production cost, they would lose quite a bit of money if they allowed that.

    Sucks, yeah - I've had my board for about a month but if I was really concerned about the possibility of a new board being announced within the year, then I would have waited. It's not a huge step up I think, so the current version is still great.

    If you're always concerned about being left behind, then the technology world must be a scary place :)

  • Youre right, but damn this really blows for me personally. As an investor I feel they should have considered upgrading replaceable parts for all models.

    Maybe just pay for an upgrade fee, not a entirely new unit.

  • @Seekwence You think you have it bad? At least you get access to a 25% discount on early sales.. In the rest of the world we don't get ANY discounts.. so this wonderful newsletter deal that was sent to me here in the Netherlands is a wonderful middle finger to my wallet...
    If the retail price of the OW+ is going to be higher here than the normal OW, i'm not going to buy..
    It would just be ridiculous..
    Future Motion: why can't we get the same deals here!!
    We would buy!

  • Just made a purchase :)

  • @njcustom no brainer for me too. Done!

    @Miro_NL_AMS i think there's a lot of misunderstanding with the price and perceived discount. The final price for all is $1499, you just get a bunch of perks if you order early (ext warranty etc).

  • @njcustom excited for your vids! I have no use for a second board but I hope they have a upgrade option. If not being able to upgrade the motor at the very least hopefully new footpads and new software.

  • @jordo

    I think so too.
    You're basically getting free fender, extra bumpers and 2 year warranty instead of 1.

  • @jordo Guess what the retail price is here for a normal OW...
    1700 EURO
    Which is 1781 USD.
    No discounts, christmas sales, thanksgiving black friday deals, etc etc.. full price, all the time..
    Next to that, we get no access to any perks..

  • @Seekwence what really blows is if you didn't have an OW at all! Go ride and smile...and be thankful! Don't let shiny new stuff ruin your day.

  • This post is deleted!

  • So I'm stewing a little right now. We early adapters are one of the main reasons this board is so popular. We are the free advertising FM has benefited from this past year. I sent them an email inquiring if there might be any consideration for purchasers of V1. I'm not expecting much. I would consider buying V2 for $1500 if I could get a reasonable price on the sale of my V1. Anyone else feel like I do?

  • @medhead

    FM has always been top notch with customer service.
    I wouldn't be surprised if they offer some type of an incentive for those who bought a V1 not long ago and wanting a V2.
    V2 is on my list come Spring and keeping V1 as a back up.

  • Yup. Went ahead and ordered one too. I'm a sucker! lol. :-P

  • Any idea what this "mafia onewheel bag" is?


    I've been hoping to hear more information about that bag also, but I haven't seen anything. I'm assuming it's their carry-bag, but is it a backpack, roller, over the shoulder, mixture of one of more, etc.

  • Just placed my order after reading their email. Seems like there is some confusion on the pricing. The news story linked to this morning said the price was going to remain around $1500 but then there is this chatter about $1984 here.

    The boards will continue to be sold for $1549 after these pricing specials but the early you order the more free stuff you get. Order in the next 48 hours to get $1984 in value with free shipping, fender, bumpers, extra warranty. Order by the 9th for $1499 and get $1712 in value...basically the same package minus the extra year in warranty. Order by the 31st for $1499 and get $50 off the normal retail price of $1549 which includes free shipping. Starting in Feb retail price will be $1549 and you will still get free shipping but you will need to buy everything else including a fender which I think everyone should own.

    I was thinking of waiting until towards summer since I don't ride much in winter but the free shipping, fender, and bumpers, and extra year of warranty is a good deal.

    Just got to pull the trigger and look forward to the increased performance on the way! I'm guessing production on these is not too different than V1 so as long as they get all the components on time there should not be delays.

  • Awe, I gotcha. That makes more sense. They factored in the value of the "Freebies" to the said retail price. The price of the new board looks to be at $1549 after the pre-sales, but the longer you wait to order the less freebies you get and therefore the less value.

    Here's the link with the break-down.

  • Out of curiosity, why does the rear footpad have a portion of the wood showing? Was there a reason to not fill all the space with the grip tape?

  • @Miro_NL_AMS I also live in the Netherlands. We will have to wait untill a shop imports them. Importing just one will put you above. 2.000 euro with taxes and shipping. As soon as the onewheel+ is available in Europe I will order one or two and sell my used v1 for a fair price. I know of good shops in belgium, in the Netherlands , austria, Finland or uk. So who is is going to be the first, reply from shops are welcome? I will order two new onewheel+ if the price remains at 1.700.
