    This or the M365 Pro?

    •  

      This. Asking the real questions

    •  

      I found this article which compares ES2 against the M365 (not Pro) but if you assume the Pro is superior to the M365 then I'd say the m365 Pro would be better.

      EDIT: another comparison seems to put ES2 ahead

      I would go the Ninebot Segway ES2. Once you get a flat/popped tire on the M365 you will want to kill yourself and curse the day you didn't get the scooter that didn't have tires that didn't go flat.

        Thanks for the input. Can’t you replace the m365 tires with foam?

        you will want to kill yourself…

        Also, are you okay friend?

          A can of slime can save lives apparently

          •  

            @nataz6: Hit a pothole and the tyre popped at the valve stem, slime wouldn't save it. I am 100kg though.

            Can confirm you will want to kill yourself after changing a tyre, worst design ever.

      •  

        If you ever wear out the front tyre on the ES2 you'll want to kill yourself. Its virtually unreplaceable.

        •  

          This☝️
          I’ve got the es2 and have changed the front tyre.
          It’s doable but it’s a pita
          Had about 600km clocked up
          Have done another 350 with the new one and it’s alreay looking like replacement due.

      Reviews I checked out shown the m365 to have better acceleration, better braking and better range than the es2. Also saying m365 having a better ride on smoother surfaces due to air filled tyres, the es2 better for pot holes. As for punctures on m365, a can of slime?

      I’m waiting for a good deal on m365 pro.

      •  

        The m365 def has way better breaking
        The es2 lacks disc break
        It’s the one limiting feature otherwise it’s graat. Nicer design and quick folding

    • +2 votes

      M365 has mechanical brake, which is peace of mind. I have an ES2 clone (Mearth X), and it's fine, but at the back of my mind is the electronic brake. So I ride carefully and decrease speed gradually on approach, rather than relying on brake to stop short.

      The plus of the ES2, is how it folds. You can then drag it like luggage, if a bit awkwardly. If you ever go on train, you will want to fold it up, then it fits under seat. I'm not sure the M365 will fit under a train seat, the ES2 is smaller, and I find it fits under most train seats.

      Above all, the weight of both scooters should be noted. 12.5kg is not fun to carry more than a few metres.

      ES2 hard wheels are not a problem if you scoot on smooth paths. But if your path is a bit rough, with lots of gaps like in old footpaths, you will feel the bumps. You might not care about the bumps, but no doubt the M365 will help absorb those bumps better. Even with "full suspension" the es2 can't soften the sharp bumps and cracks.

      Anyway.. the price here is good. $560… lowest I've seen.

      •  

        Yep at this price it’s good.
        The mearth has a bigger batty I believer but otherwise it seems identical

      Dammit we should have pestered our politicians to change motorised scooter laws. No we'll have to wait another few years

        In a suburb nearby, the police decided to apply a parking related law that had never been used in the area before (because it made no sense) and fined 300+ people in one day. The fact that they're not enforcing it today, doesn't make it any less illegal. I have a relative in Victoria (towards the NSW border), that was done for riding one of these within the last month. The penalties are not a slap on the wrist, because they treat it as an unregistered vehicle.

        I'd love to be able to ride one of these things in public, but people should know that they're potentially risking their drivers license by doing so.

    Now i miss the deal when M365 was just for around $465 delivered

    This seems kind of expensive when I've already got 6 free Lime scooters in the shed.

  •  

    I'm just confused as this seems to be two different scooters in one.. unless I'm missing something how can it be a xiaomi and Segway?

    •  

      Xiaomi is a large stakeholder in Ninebot. Ninebot owns the Segway brand, and simultaneously develops Xiaomi’s scooter lineup, hence the many shared parts, and both probably come from the same factories.

    Have ridden both the M365 and ES2 (work colleagues ones), and would strongly recommend the M365. Suspension on the ES2 was hardly adequate, still a rough ride due to the solid rubber wheels, and the hub motor brake is also much less effective than the mechanical disc brake on the M365. I felt much more confident on the M365, the ES2 feels more like a toy. I’m 90kg for reference.

    Personally waiting for a sub-$500 M365.

    Excuse my ignorance but has it been explained why bicycles are allowed on roads and dedicated paths (fully legal with helmet etc. you could fix a back light to the helmet and front light for night safety, at first I assumed it had something with it being electric - but I see bikes equipped with electrics all the time) and these are not? Also when they mention 25km/h is this the max speed downhill - can I still achieve this speed going up a steep gradient? Not much point if they max out at 10 km/h for your average sized adult going up a hill.

      Laws haven't caught up and pollies too busy riding their helicopters to care

      can I still achieve this speed going up a steep gradient?

      Definitely not. 25 is the top speed on level flat path. Even a gentle hill you won't achieve 25.

      In fact, if you're scooting into a head wind on level ground, you won't achieve 25. You might sit on about 22 with headwind. The motor is not powerful, but that's a good thing. For casual scooting on footpaths, you don't want a high-torque motor mixing with pedestrians.

      These scooters are harmless, and should be made totally legal at the current max 25 km/h capacity. You can't "burn rubber" or do tricks, they are casual, lightweight time-saving transport. They are good for society, and lawmakers need to wake up.

      As for riding these on roads, I wouldn't personally do it. I'm a cyclist too, and bikes are much heavier, less potential for twitchy change of direction. Bigger wheels, mechanical brakes, and ability to handle larger obstacles such as potholes. E-scooters are not suitable for mixing with vehicle traffic IMHO.

    Is this legal in Victoria?

    • +1 vote

      Perfectly legal, except on public roads, footpaths or cycle lanes.

      On your patio or driveway, go for it…

    •  

      Because this scooter has a top speed greater than 10kph Vic Roads classifies it as a motor vehicle meaning it is not permitted to be used on footpaths, must be registered, the rider must be licensed & follow all regulations covering motor vehicles including road worthiness.
      https://www.vicroads.vic.gov.au/safety-and-road-rules/road-r...

      Not including pedelecs, any scooter or bicycle is a motor vehicle treated much the same as a motorbike if:
      * If it capable of more than 10kph under its own power. OR
      * The motor is more powerful than 200 watts. OR
      * It is powered by a petrol engine. (I assume they mean any internal combustion engine)

    It’s a shame this cannot be legally ridden anywhere in NSW except your own backyard

    Most other states have similar restrictions.

    Can be used anywhere but be sensible then you won’t be fined, have your helmet, correct lights, traffic speeds, don’t be a delinquent.
