    What a price!

    Nice Segway!

  • Can you drive these in public

    • +52

      No you can only ride them.

    • These can only be used inside your property there are huge fines if cought riding on roads or footpaths as the rules for these haven’t been passed yet

      • +4

        i think you referring to NSW, other state might have diff. rules

        • +1

          They're not legal in most of SA either. A trial is currently happening in the CBD.

          • +1

            @Timm: The trial is kinda dumb though because it involves people leaving the scooters on their sides in the middle of the footpath everywhere.

            • @Diji1: Adelaide cbd has a good use case for them. Nice wide footpaths and roads and not a bunch of people clogging the paths like Melbourne

        • +6

          Not legal for road or foothpath in Vic

          • +6

            @stevtom27: I scooted past two cops in Melbourne CBD on footpath, they didn't even look twice. Ride with care, and you will be left alone. Simple.

            • -10

              @cerealJay: I wish cops take action (in Syd) as I almost got run over by it… Twice last week! The idiots were zooming at 100kph (figuratively speaking) on the footpath!

              • +11

                @DonIsGood: Unfortunately some scooter owners are not bright. When I rode in Melbourne CBD (I lived in CBD for awhile), I did so only when the footpath is not busy, and I slow down around people, or temporarily hop off and walk until the path is clear. Never had a problem.

                • +1

                  @cerealJay: I do the same in Sydney CBD. I usually to walk and push the scooter if the footpath is busy. Unfortunately, there is a lot of resentment towards scooter riders.

                • @cerealJay: Seems to be a big problem. They passed quite lenient laws in Singapore making them legal on footpaths with a speed limit and power restrictions, but after a couple of years they have now banned them completely again due to that sort of issues. Possibly also the huge number being used for food delivery services contributing too.

              • @DonIsGood: Go get hit and sue

                • @Bryanalves: Problem is you can die from a collision like that. It's not even the primary collision but if the impact knocks you back and your head lands on the pavement, collision can die.

            • +1

              @cerealJay:

              I scooted past two cops in Melbourne CBD on footpath, they didn't even look twice.

              I knew a guy who was saying the same for a couple of months until he was stopped by police and got $1500+ fine with a lot of demerit points for "riding motorised vehicle on footpath", "riding unregistered vehicle" and "riding motorised vehicle without helmet".
              He switched to eBike.

          • @stevtom27: But legal to ride non electric right?

      • +3

        They say this but does anyone actually get fined.. see so many ppl on these in city of Melb. Melb participating in scooter trial so its only matter of time..

        • +3

          In NSW definitely. But now people have seen others riding them around, they start to think they are actually legal when they are not.

          • +1

            @mubd1234: Iv seen police confiscate then fro
            People riding them in vic
            Like they do with monkey bikes

      • -1

        Why did Dex get negged?

      • I saw them being used widely in some cities in the USA like San Diego (Lime Scooters) and honestly, its like those bikes people were trashing and littering the parks/streets/sidewalk/bike trails etc
        If they are introduced, I hope action is taken to curb this sort of "dumping" as they can become quite bothersome for residents and pedestrians like those rental bikes were.
        For private use I dont see an issue as people wont leave their property out on the street like that.

        • +1

          It's funny how they (governments) can change laws for a corporate entity but don't listen to the general public….

    • +12

      All fine in QLD

      • +63

        All fines in NSW

      • It's not legal to ride a scooter on most qld roads. only local roads so small they have no centre line marking or medium strip and speed limit 50km/h and under. For many it would be impossible to commute without breaking the Law if you had to or wished to use roads for fastest journey

        • But can you use the footpath instead?
          Not as fast but legal

          • @DisabledUser148723: yeah, if you have the wider footpath/bikepaths it's great. I just have normal thin footpaths with people/parked cars in the way

    • Well if they are selling it, promoting it and staff saying that they are legal then it is

      • $826 fine in Victoria. Ouch. I'll wait until it's legal. Thanks for posting

    Can confirm it is generic code

    " San Francisco Bay Area to Palo Alto"
    wow so this come with free flight tickets? return i hope.

    • let us know, if you make it back in one piece

  • says max speed 25km.. can it go faster with mod?

    • +7

      Red flames gives it almost 20% more i heard.

      • Don't forget neons

        • +1

          Stance it with 90° camber on the wheels.

    • Not modable.

    • +2

      Yes, This is region locked. I have unlocked mine to go 30km/h. Need the dash module from the ES4 scooter as a hardware gateway. I can unlock for you in Croydon area.

      • Yup mine unlocked too for 30kmh. But will drop down to 26-27 as the battery gets lower.

      • Bought one yesterday. Would love help unlocking it. I'm in Oakleigh, not too far if the offer is still there?

        • More I'd travel… Not you guys come to me 😅😅😅

  • +17

    Quick summary which I believe is up to date:

    https://www.gizmodo.com.au/2019/11/e-scooter-laws-australia/

    New South Wales: private property only.
    South Australia: private property only.
    Western Australia: private property only.
    Victoria: e-scooters below 200-watts can be ridden in some public spaces up to 10km/h.
    Tasmania: e-scooters below 200-watts can be ridden in some public spaces up to 10km/h.
    Australian Capital Territory: e-scooters below 200-watts can be ridden in some public spaces up to 10km/h.
    Northern Territory: e-scooters below 200-watts can be ridden in some public spaces up to 10km/h.
    Queensland: e-scooters above 200 watts can be ridden publicly on the street, on footpaths and in bike lanes at over 10km/h.

    (note - I believe the 10km/hr is refers to the capability of the device on level ground, not what you are actually clocked doing. It doesn't matter if you're ongoing going at walking pace - if the device is capable of moving >10km/hr you risk a fine (in Vic).)

    • +2

      This is straight from ACT gov webpage FAQ.

      Aren’t e-scooters already legal in the ACT?
      Electric scooters are currently not permitted to be used on roads and road related areas in the ACT.
      The penalties for using an e-scooter in the ACT can be significant. Infringement notices can include a penalty of $151 for using an e-scooter, $600 for using an unregistered vehicle and $903 for using an uninsured vehicle.

      • +1

        Actually, I think unregistered and uninsured in ACT almost $2000 now (they've gone up along with other offences).

        But there's definitely moves afoot to change the eScooter laws here: https://the-riotact.com/road-rules-set-to-change-to-accommod...

        Above scooter is currently illegal here… but depending the changes coming, it might not be in 6 months.

        • +2

          People will be able to fly soon in ACT anyway

      • I can't believe it's not already legal in this 'green('s)' town.

      • But they have announced revisions to these regulations are happening in December. I think it's probably worth holding the trigger until they come through.

  • +1

    interesting, how can JB store in ACT sell something which is illegal on the ACT road?

    • +1

      Use on public property

    • +50

      It’s illegal to use a dildo in public as well, doesn’t mean they can’t be sold.

      • +19

        Really? I best tell the Mrs.

      • +5

        Well I think it depends on the use case. There's nothing wrong with pulling out a dildo and just throwing it back and forth with a friend like it's a football. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

        Don't attach it to a bat and hit someone with it because that would be assault.

        • +3

          Great use case!

        • +4

          Pulling out a dildo and saying "want to be friends" in public can be hit or miss. And that's before one even gets to the football part of the newfound relationship.
          Also a caveat…
          Inviting a friend out in public then pulling out a dildo saying "hey lets throw this at one another" may also present its own set of problems… It just depends on your friend.

          However, if in either scenario the "friend" is a willing participant, then I find attaching the dildo to a bat and hitting one another with it is just one of the a great warm-up activities that can be included in the evenings festivities.

          Difficult to make this "use case" hold in court for any scenario I suspect…

          Pardon my segue from the Segway though…

      • +6

        This is seriously the best analogy i have seen regarding the sale of electric scooters.

      • Well, that's why JB store in ACT doesn't sell them…

      • +1

        It’s illegal to use a dildo in public as well

        Do you have a link to this law?
        Asking for a friend.

      • +1

        Depends where you hide it ………….

    • +5

      You could always use it in your backyard…

      Having said that, the chance of one of the 10 policemen (or women) we have in the ACT booking you for riding one of these sensibly in public is pretty damn slim.

      • +4

        Ninjachicken, I have followed your comment directly on from TightTerry's comment… and it has changed what you are talking about completely! :)

        "…. booking you for riding one of these sensibly in public…"

        Riding what exactly ;).

        • +1

          They also said…

          You could always use it in your backyard…

          NinjaChickens backyard is NSFW :)

      • I agree. We've got the best bike paths for riding these. Much better than stupid trams.

    • They have disclaimers online and posters in store saying to check with relevant state authorities to get around it

    • Most dirt bikes are illegal on the road too, as are quads, ATV's, golf carts etc. Not all of the planet is public road though…

      • More like: The government hasn't made all of the planet illegal for anyone to do anything. But they're working on it.

  • So these cant really be used within NSW on public paths or roads ?

    EDIT

    Just seen zhuntai comment thanks for that.

    Xiaomi Mi Pro or the Ninebot Max ? The Xiaomi goes for $708.05. https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/497102
    Which one would you select and why?

    • I’d probably go the Xiaomi pro - big fan of the disc brake..

    • +1

      I am too wondering the same. Gonna jump the gun but not sure which. M365 lighter slimmer perfect for mobility. Max more power and battery. Heart goes to segway but brain is inclined more to m365.

      Drum brake is more reliable and pretty much maintenance free for a scooter. No disc change or get rusty when not used.

      • Do these things not have motor braking?

        • +1

          Front wheel mechanical drum brake. Back sheel regenerative electric brake.

    • +5

      Segway is much better - faster and just feels more stable, better lighting too if riding at dusk/evening
      I use them all in the US on Bird, Jump etc
      I get mega frustrated when there's no Segway available nearby

    • +1

      They are twins. Segway was acquired by Xiaomi a couple years ago.

    • +1

      They are very close designs but with different motor positions. Ninebot is supported financially by Xiaomi.
      The Max has a 15% larger battery and a built in charger.

      If you don't mind the weight, I'd probably go for the Max.
      If you're going to be lifting it around I'd go for the M365 Pro as it's about 4-5KG lighter.

  • Victoria: e-scooters below 200-watts can be ridden in some public spaces up to 10km/h. My little 5 year old boy electric toy scooter can go 12km/h. Why don't they just simply ban it when most of the electric scooter will do 10km/hr

    • +3

      Because most bikes go faster and this is a legitimate mode of transport… Why ban it at all?

      • +1

        They probably get in the way of the politicians on their morning bike ride.

    • +3

      Because legalisation has to start somewhere.

    • +1

      We should ban everything … except for cars … no … ban also cars … just not V8s and big trucks. This is Australia!

    • +4

      Emailed VicRoads about this and they legitimately straight up said laws haven't kept up and pointed me to NTC's consultation paper.

      Also, 242 road deaths in Victoria, up 33%, want to guess how many of them are escooter/ebikes/bicycles caused? It's absurd to be so car blind for the authorities and people against escooter to talk about 'safety' when the numbers don't add up.

      I'm honestly tired of riding my escooter in anxiety. Although I've never had troubles with being stopped, and I've ridden past multiple police cars without any issues, I'm still constantly riding in fear and anxiety.

      • Please point me to NTC papers too.

        Risk it for the biscuit, but I won't be yet

        • Sleepycat3 has them linked right below. When I emailed them they were accepting submissions. I haven't read the final paper yet.

      • I'd like to add that I ride sensible, and I ride the escooter how and where I would ride bikes. If they go about the same speed, they belong in the road, shared paths, and bike paths.

        I've been riding bikes past 5 years and still do so I've got some experience on the roads, how to act sensible, how to pass other people safely etc.
