Xiaomi M365 Electric Scooter $599.20 Delivered @ Tech Mall eBay

900
PLUGIT20

I was looking for a fast way to part with cash to the NSW Office of State Revenue and possibly maim and injure myself in the most hilarious way possible. Nothing funnier than an old, fat guy falling off a scooter to make the kids laugh and the other parents moan…

While the prices are around the $700 plus mark for Aus stock, I wasn’t really interested, but this came up on my list today, and I thought, pull the trigger time… Ok, it's not the cheapest it's ever been, but it's pretty close.

InB4: screeching about being illegal to use in public and price jacking. No problem, I have plenty of places I can ride it on private property and the price has remained the same for almost 2 months. Yeah, Ok, other places have it a bit cheaper, so when those places have a 20% off deal, feel free to post it.

            @tranter: I have an anecdote about a politician accepting a bribe for a land permit. It certainly occurs and the few cases where politicians have been caught proves it

          •  

            @tranter: somewhat. the law has been there for quite a while, despite people appealing it / trying to get it changed as it was overly conservative and out dated.

            along comes a business and it's changed in a matter of days. read into that how you want. I guess I see it as a law changing not because of common sense, safety, or public safety, but as a matter of money. or at least, that money got the right people's attention.

        QLD government are a bit more intelligent than other States when it comes to this.

        They even let you ride bikes on the footpath!

        I'd get one of these if it wasn't illegal too :(

          First time anyone has ever said this

        •  

          Being a spread out more means they can allow people to do things without interfering with others.

          Just read somewhere that they can go up to 25kmph and only allowed on the footpath, forgot which state…

      If you don't carry on like a douchebag, the odds of being pulled up are likely to be near zero. I bought from shopro using paypal10, which made it about a dollar cheaper (but with a spare set of wheels).

    It must be legal since shitelimebike does it

    • +4 votes

      Yeah, I read that somewhere recently… I am hoping that they might relax the laws on these types of scooters. Would be much funnier for me to stack it in front of random people in public. :D

    •  

      Yeah just look at Uber, they're totally legal and everything. Certainly not criminals.

  •  

    I would totally buy one but I really dont have a use for it haha

      Same! I can see me riding it twice. Falling off once and then mothballing it till the laws change or the batteries die from not being recharged…

    I’m after the (Xiaomi) Segway ninebot es2

    •  

      Likewise, the Ninebot is the way to go since it can follow remotely too if you want something to carry luggage, etc. I've only found this one for under $700 with the discount:

        "Beautiful from safety"
        I'll take it! Sold.

      •  

        But is it still legal in qld? I know that the electric scooters are legal, just wondering if the ninebot is too since it is a segway.

      •  

        So I think this bad boy would be legal in the ACT as long as you get an extension pole for the steerer so you’re using your hands and not your knees to steer.

    Anyone know how these go up hills? Do you have to get off and push?

    • +1 vote

      Depending on the gradient it may need some help

    • +1 vote

      Depends how steep the hill & your weight, they're pretty strong though

    • +2 votes

      They work up about 10-15% gradient, but much slower. If it stops you can give it a bit of a push for assisted movement. You shouldn't have to get off unless you can't push it fast enough to trigger the power to the wheels. They need a minimum speed before the motor will kick in.

    As soon as NSW legalises its use on public paths or roads…

  •  

    I tried a Segway version of this (don't know specifics) and thought it was really fun. If I lived in the city and close to work, I would definitely get something like this.

      some piece of shit no name brand scooter vs a Xiaomi.. no thanks.

      •  

        Yeah doesn't mention anything about the scooter being Xiaomi but it looks damn similar

        •  

          It would be the same, made in the same factory.

    •  

      Not the same, kogan have the same "combo" with the same misleading title. It's a Bullet branded scooter IIRC, and they review poorly

  •  

    Is this legal in Vic? O.o

    • +1 vote

      No

    •  

      No, but you can see people riding this in melb tho

  •  

    The RRP in China seems below $400, even cheaper during sales seasons. Why…

    •  

      Shipping and tax

    •  

      Australia tax. GST. Importation costs?

    The chance of being fined is about 1 to 1000. If one commutes with it he or she will use it 400 times a year, which works out 0.5 fines per year. Each fine is probably 200 AUD (since the more serious red light offence is 400+ AUD). Which works out about a cost of 0.5AUD per commute? All numbers are made up using common sense.

      read some news before, a guy riding this got fined more than $600 in Sydney CBD.

      • +3 votes

        Yeah $643 fine.

        •  

          Yea, I wouldn't use this in the CBD with so many people. Anywhere else they probably wouldn't care as much. Also, no helmet is just asking for it.

        •  

          Photo uploaded in 2015. This is old new.

            @ruriruri: Still happens. Saw one get stopped by police at the end of Pyrmont bridge.

    • +1 vote

      It can be a hell of a lot more than 200 bucks. They essentially fine you for riding an unregistered motorcycle, without a motorcycle licence, and without a helmet classed for use on a motorcycle. These could easily cost you over 1K if the cop is looking to nail you against the wall.

    Ordered one. Lime Scooters are fun and useful.

    Lime Brisbane 30c/minute + $1 flag = $19/hour.
    $600/$19 ≈ 31 hours Lime time.

    •  

      Assuming you only unlock it once for an hour session! I believe the average ride on these is something like 5 or 10 mins duration, making that ~$24 or $30 an hour for Lime

      I bought one of these from Tech Mall before they price jacked and ran out of stock - hope it is fulfilled in good time……..

    they are 2000 RMB in China which is $400, however good luck posting them :)) air freight is not an option;

    I have been commuting on this to work in QLD for almost a year now (well before they were legal). Mileage almost 1000km to date. Needs a few minor mods and the stock tyres are crap. Firmware can also be hacked to remove the speed limit and improve acceleration (can be disabled on the fly if cops give you trouble). Great little machine.

      I've got one too. It's for local trips. Brilliant.

      Dope

    •  

      What were the required mods to improve usability?

      •  

        Adjustments to stem lock, gasket to stem hinge to get rid of the annoying rattle, rear light cable protector for those who have a tendency to accidentally step on the rear wheel cover, waterproofing the handlebar circuit board.

        •  

          @Livert

          How do you waterproof the handlebar circuit board? I just bought one of these and am aware of the first two mods you mentioned

          Thanks for your comment on distance travelled

          • +1 vote

            @GenghisGun: You can carefully cover the gaps with some clear packing tape or buy a cover on aliexpress or get a cover 3d printed. Plans are on thingiverse somewhere.

            •  

              @Livert: Legend, thanks very much! I did find some useful 3D print mods on thingiverse

                @GenghisGun: If you want to go all out on waterproofing, you can also add some silicone lubricant to the big battery cover underneath.

    Can anyone prove it is illegal in Victoria? Is there a link to the rules

    • +1 vote

      Found some information that may help you on the Vic Roads website…

      • +1 vote

        Thanks. So as far as I gather this model is illegal because it can go faster than 10kmh
        It seems otherwise legal if it is used on a foothpath or public road that doesn't have divided lines and road speed limit is under 50kmh

        • +1 vote

          It's illegal due to the speed yes. It's classed under Vic law as an unregistered motorcycle (and no you cannot register it even if you wanted to). There is nonowhere you can use this legally other than on private property.

    I'd buy one each and sell my car, but alas it's illegal in Victoria

    Word of warning.

    I purchased this from this seller 3 weeks ago for an Xmas gift & it was stolen / lost in the post. The seller has advised that they have no stock till Mid-January so can’t send another.

    Still waiting, requester another update but nothing yet.

    You have been warned…

  •  

    I got one. Flashed custom firmware to make eco mode only 10kmh. Legal in vic now. Double tap the button to turn off when you want.

    •  

      Nice - any chance you could link the firmware site?
