People like to say Segway was a flop, but we`re still here.

What does "we're still here" mean in this context? Does it mean "we are successful now" or "we still have a strong will to make it"?

Neither really. It just means, "We are still in business."

You can use this expression in a variety of contexts where (for some reason) it was expected you would fail, but you have nevertheless persisted.

Some people thought the Senator's personal scandals would have been the end of his political career -- but nevertheless he's still here, still making speeches and getting votes.
