    I bought my 8yo son the blue version of this for Christmas. For anyone considering the E8, these have been my pro and con observations over the last 2 months:
    PROs
    - strong aluminium frame that takes a beating,
    - excellent overall build quality,
    - solid tyres but still somewhat soft (so no punctures) - the brakes work well too, not perfect but serviceable,
    - front suspension is not perfect but does work and does the job,
    - reasonable battery range (10km) - I wish this was longer (maybe 15km) but it's rare that we go on a trip with our kids longer than 10km - and on one long ride the scooter was still going after about 11km,
    - battery wall charger is small and portable,
    - decent motor performance and torque, especially up hills,
    - the fold down mechanism feels solid, and
    - it seems to be fairing well with the harsh treatment of my son.

    CONS
    - the top speed is a good balance for young kids, but you'll find that at times it feels too slow (my son can go faster on his push scooters on a straight section),
    - the scooter is probably slightly too heavy for my sons age (he can lift it up stairs but it is awkward),
    - my son finds it very hard to fold down (the mechanism is tight and requires quite a bit of force), and
    - charging seems to take several hours.

    Overall we paid $300 and we think it's been a great e-scooter which should last a reasonably long time. (though if you're unsure of colour, the blue is a very light blue and would probably be suitable for boys or girls). If I could have purchased the E10 for around $350-400 I would probably have grabbed that one instead of the E8 as it goes slightly faster and is slightly larger in all dimensions.

    looking around the internets for a deal for a Ninebot Max

    Did you find one?

    •  

      Not really, PCByte has it for 999, JB has it for 999 as well but with a free bag. I was hoping for something similar to jb's 799 deal but that seems to only happen once a year. You can get refurbed ones for 899 on segway au's ebay store but thats a gamble.

        I tried to get a better deal from JB at 2 different stores. Neither would budge on the $999 price. I got one anyway and it was definitely worth it.

      You can use the PAPY10 code and it brings it down to 953, have to use afterpay tho.
