Evolution of the MSX
Gotway MSX Background:
The MSX is now the fourth iteration of Gotway’s 18″ Electric Unicycle over as many years. In the earlier 2017 model, the V3S+, was the first 84V high performance Wheel with a maximum cruising speed potential of upwards of 30MPH, a 1600Wh battery pack to provide in excess of 60 miles range, & an integrated handle. Despite being one of the highest performing Electric Unicycles then made, the first units to roll out of the factory were not without some serious design flaws, such as a control-board with a statistically high failure rate, & wiring that had a tendency to overheat. These flaws were mostly worked out quite early on in the production cycle, but the issue of the controller reliability was never truly mastered, particularly when compared to other models from the competition. The MSX set out to address the deficiencies of the early generation, one that would stand up to the test of time.
How does one choose between the 100V MSP & 84V MSX? The MSX Pro offers a slightly higher top speed, 2MPH faster than the 84v MSX, but at an additional cost of $200. The main benefit the MSP has over the MSX, is that the 2500W motor provides significantly higher torque for hill-climbing, supporting heavier riders & increased safety margin.
IMPORTANT: It should also be noted that this max speed value is NOT the recommended riding speed. There have been cases of Riders experiencing cut-out below the ‘max speed’ threshold. The programmed max speed is simply the value at which the triple-tone alert is activated from within the Gotway firmware. The capabilities of the Wheel will vary on a number of factors, such as the weight of the Rider, aggressiveness of acceleration, ambient temperature, & terrain incline. Please make sure you’re properly protected before setting off.

Frequently Asked Questions
- The pictures show a steep inward pedal banking angle, will this the case on the production MSX Pro?
Our MSX Pros will be fitted with the larger profiled black Nikola pedals, with a more tame inward banking angle of 7-10°.
- What will become of the 2KW Motor MSX, will it be discontinued? Will I still be able to acquire spare parts for my machine?
Yes, the MSX will still be available for some time to come. The MSP shares the same shell, panels, motor, handle & a lot of other components with the MSX.
- What type of ‘stock’ charger is included with the 100V MSXs?
The Gotway 100V charger is a fan-cooled 3A charger, with a 300W output. We also offer an upgraded 8A charger with the LCD read-out & partial 80%/90% charge settings to extend the lifespan of the battery pack for $175 for existing Customers.
- What is the recommended max speed on the MSX Pro?
While the new 2500W motor possesses more torque, this comes at the expense of a decreased, ~7MPH, max speed of around 37MPH. In practice you should always ride at least a couple MPH lower than the max limit, to have some speed in reserve.
- Are there alternative tire choices available for the MSX/MSP?
Yes, there is a knobbly tire, which will be offered soon. One consideration of a knobbly tire is that the tread life on these is typically less than a normal road-tire when using on paved surfaces.
- How water resistant is the MSP, can I use it in the rain?
The Wheel housing is completely enclosed, if any water that enters into the retractable handle chamber, will harmlessly drain through. For the electronics, there is an epoxy film coating applied over the control-board, this provides an additional measure to weather protection.
Despite these design features, it is the general recommended, that it is not a good idea to attempt to use in the rain, prolonged exposure to moisture, try to avoid puddles & standing water, which may enter the motor though the axle aperture, causing corrosion to the bearings & premature wear to the internals of the motor.
- How difficult is it to perform maintenance work on the MSX?
Comparatively easily, once the two side panels are removed, the internals of the Wheel exposed in just a few minutes. Changing an innertube on the MSX should take around 30 minutes, while the same operation on a Tesla, or MCM5 will require nearly twice as long. Besides the periodic tire/innertube change, it’s not expected that the other components will need servicing. We also have a warranty service-center in Tucson, Arizona, should it develop a fault & need to be sent in for repair.
