      "Works well

      I'm 95kg and it gets up to 25kph easily, but at times this feels too slow so you'll want to mod the firmware so you can go faster. I reckon I'd get around 30km on a charge with a few hills here and there, but I usually only do 20km before charging. It does tend to lose a bit of up hill speed when the batteries drop to 30% or less, so keep this in mind. Build quality is very good. Haven't had a flat yet, but from what I read it's just a matter of time, so perhaps invest in some puncture resistant lining and some slime.

        Agree - same here, though ive channelled my inner Balinese motorcyclist and had me and my 3yo (@ ~15kg) son going tandem when he gets a bit tired, so total weight is probably pushing 115kg some days and no issues so far.
        Full charge it Zips, as you get to 2 or 3 bars it starts to struggle up hills
        Totally recommend it though - i slimed my tyres, but i reckon you would only get a flat if you were offroading.
        Awesome scooter, got my price matched locally for simpler warranty - about the same price
        Would definitely recommend

    It was around $720 from Xiaomi oficial store on ebay with 2 years warranty in AU, so it's worth waiting for another sale.

    I have a M365 and am considering this or a Zero 8 for more range/power. Think the Zero 8 might be worth the extra $150 for the extra power and ease of changing tyres.

    I've already had 2 flats on the M365 in about 6 months and its a massive PITA to replace them.

    • -3 votes

      that's why you replace them with solid tyres

      • +5 votes

        Solid tyre's on the M365 are a terrible idea for several reasons:
        1. Increases rolling resistance:
        - Top speed decreases by ~10%.
        - Range decreases by 30-40% (I barely make it to work as it is)
        2. M365 has no suspension making solid tyres a very bumpy ride. Will shorten scooter life with the additional vibration.
        3. Solid tyres have less grip, more dangerous in wet patches etc.

        I have replaced my M365 tubes with thicker ones and slimed them and no flats yet but only been about 80km on them.

        • -2 votes

          Nope. There's good ones out there. Check youtube

            @mr_asstight: Linky?

              @Vert93: did you slime the tyres? i slimed my tyres from day 1 and have ridden almost 500km in 3 months with no flats. i also keep both tyres inflated to 50psi, as apparently some flats are due to abrasion of the tube against the tyre.

              • +2 votes

                @bohdud: Nah not at the start. First flat was a blowout after hitting a pothole so slime wouldn't have helped.
                2nd flat was due to abrasion (slime could've helped here). Since changed both tubes to 'thicken' ones off alieexpress with slime.
                60 psi on both however I'm 102kg which doesn't help.

                Regardless flats will happen eventually and replacing a tube on the M365 is a huge pain. Even after microwaving the tyre (and melting/bubbling one tyre in the process.. durp).

                •  

                  @Vert93: +1, I've not had a flat from a puncture after 1700km. Wheels have slime and I have ridden over plenty of glass with tyres at 55 psi.

        •  

          A good set of solid tyres will make your ride more firm, but actually increase your range and speed.
          And arguably will shorten life of the scooter due to vibrations.

          However, some users (depending on conditions etc..) will find they commonly puncture their tyre. And in this case, a solid tyre is a great alternative.

      •  

        Your knees will love you for it.

    •  

      M365 / Pro has excellent reliability and lifespan from first-hand experience.

      I am not sure about the Zero 8, but I know a lot of brands struggle to do well in this area.

    •  

      I run my tyres at 60 PSI. I had no issues with flats so far (touch wood).

      If you already have an M365 my recommendation is NOT to upgrade to an M365 Pro.

      While the Pro is better than the original M365 - its still in the "entry level" class of scooter.

      Great for someone who has never had one before, but as an experienced rider, you may not notice much of a difference from your current scooter - certainly not $700 worth of difference!

      The Pro is noticeby larger (dimensions) and heavier - but still only has an entry level 300w motor - so slow to accelerate - and hills will still be slower / crawl / or stop.

      You want to be looking for at least 500 watt (nominal) motor to get a mid-range, long term keeper.

      The Zero 9 (or cheaper 8) are really good options, as is the Mercane WideWheel (if you dont ride in the wet a lot).

        Update: hold off condidering the WideWheel while a brake issue is being investigated.

        And in the entry level range, while I've had fun over the past year, I would not now recommend the Ninebot (owned by Xiaomi) scooters due to common hardware problems (one of which mine has - intermittently slows to half speed if the headlight is on).

        Another common issue is the brake locking on if the headlight is on - so scooter wont move. Fix is to use solder to short out a tiny fuse on the control board. Thankfully mine has not had that issue.

    This is not legal in NSW yet right?

    Hopefully the laws are gaining some traction: https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2019/nov/17/austr...

      Hmm maybe OP should add this deal is targeted at Queenslanders only.
      Not much point for other states.

        i've seen a lot of people in Adelaide riding these around. Guess if you're not being stupid, the cops don't care too much

        •  

          Same here in Sydney, I guess just slow down in busy road you will be OK.

          But the fact of our law can't keep up with tech is annoying.

    Build quality on this scooter is very good. The frame is sturdy aluminium and the ESC is clamped onto an aluminium heat sink. Power levels can be increased with custom firmware.

    However I'd recommend you open it up and apply some thermal paste to the back of the mosfets and additional thermal paste to the back of the ecu case. I'd also recommend you solder or recrimp the motor phase wires. Mine had a high resistance connection and were burning up. Doing this will void your warranty but solved my overheating issues with custom firmware.

    Question - so I ride this down to my Westfields and then… Carry it around? Lock it up at a bike rack etc?

    • +1 vote

      Just push it around Westfields. It's small enough to fit into most shops. I've even taken it into Chemist Warehouse and those aisles are notoriously narrow.

    • +3 votes

      I lock mine up at the bike rack with a thick short length U lock around the tube between the stem and the base board. I also have a rear disk lock with a cable that I use sometimes.

      This scooter is less valuable than a lot of bicycles.

    thanks, i finally grabbed one! price is good

        This is advertised as a "Global Version". Are you 100% sure this model isn't affected?

        It may not have the screw flaw that is described in the link but I felt it was worth letting the community know that there is a recall on such devices so that they can make their owned informed decision.

    •  

      That's a recall for the vanilla M365. This is the Pro model.
