Not cheapest, but from official store means Aussie stock. Code works when tested
Part of eBay Plus Weekend
Location: The Rocks, Sydney.
When: About a month ago.
I see a woman riding her scooter. Slow pace. Cop in car pulls up next to her.
"Is that an electric scooter?" He yells from inside the car.
She stops, and says "yea".
He replies "They're illegal".
"OK" she replies.
She gets off and walks away. The officer drives off.
The cop was probably too busy helping someone who got robbed by watching their CCTV, instead of telling them they can't do anything about it
Is this legal in Tasmania? Pain to cross the bridge, this might be really good for me
No, I believe you can only have 200w max in Tassie, this is 600w…
its a 300w motor with bursts to 600w from memory….
still illegal on public roads mind you :/
Unfortunate hey,,, Last week I had a good play on the Flamingo and Beam scooters in Wellington NZ, I stayed about 7km out of the CBD in a free marina carpark/camp and just used the scooters to to get in and out of the city centre, cheaper than fuel and parking and I had a heap of fun on them… If they were legal in Tassie I'd buy one just for the hell of it, lol, pity we aren't as progressive as NZ ! .
My 7km commute, x8 speed:
can it carry a 5'9 and 94kg male 13km back and forth?
Yes, probably best to charge it on each end unless you drive on eco mode
up to 45 kms
up to 45 kms
Guess it can, also you can always check the stats in app
Why would height matter?
I reckon it would, i'm 120kg & get around 25km on a charge, real-life conditions, hills etc..
Depends on the terrain u ride on, road preferably as there's less stop/starts than footpath but it really depends on the scenario..
Carries me easy back and forth that far - depends on hills and depends how much you have sport mode on.
Usually get to work and top it up, then you can fang it as much as you want on the way home.
This or the Ninebot Segway Max?
i had the same quandary but the Xiaomi was ~$200 cheaper & lots more mods & FW available for Xiaomi.
Since purchase i've done F/W (Monopattinoitalia Sport), 10" tyre upgrade, X-Tech brakes & ducktail rear guard..
I'm 120kg & it goes up hills & the max speed i've reached is nearly 40km/h, on flat or downhill obviously..
its promising but someone mentioned its not water resistant or water proof. i live in Melbourne and it cro weather here every second day so i am really confused if i should invest more nd get ninebot.
Ducktail rear guard is one of the worst mods I've done. If there is any water on the road, prepare to get splashed all over your back.
Would recommned just the normal rear guard with the supporting brace.
It's a consideration for sure but I don't personally intend on riding mine in, or just after rain.. I wouldn't trust being able to pull up quickly if I had to.. I have fitted the X-tech brakes & can lock the rear tyre if I squeeze the brake hard enough..
I personally think it looks much more sleek with the duck-tail though..
Each to their own I suppose.. Always good to get others' feedback though!
This not waterproof, Ninebot is waterproof, warranty void if get caught in the rain for Xiaomi.
any issue riding this in Melbourne?
only within a 5km radius
from my memory max 10 km/h and motor 200w max. Cops may fine you if they had a bad day. If they do, they can fine you for riding a motor vehicle with no 3rd party insurance and no registration.
how come these re not legal but the electric bikes used by delivery guys is. they go every where and fast in Melbourne cbd.
Yeah, Domino's was running electric bicycles from ages for delivery
And how come we don't see any deals for those electric bikes?
Those E delivery bikes aren't legal. The rules state that pedaling has to be the primary power source, and the battery stops helping at 25.
is there any escooter which is legal in victoria and sold locally?
Ebikes are only legal in Sydney/NSW if your riding supervising a child under 16 or have one sitting in the back, you are legally allowed to ride on the footpath (with care in busy areas). Ebikes also have a pedalac system where you have to peddle for assisted power and will cut out after 25km.
Those delivery drivers driving like pricks are ruining it, they have throttle systems on their bike and barely peddle at all with their bafang motors.
In saying so, its hella fun to ride a proper ebike (peddle assist motor) to shops and be able to park outside. Sydney is getting a bit better with more bike lanes around the city.
As to these escooters, I hope the law catches up so we can buy these things and ride them legally. I have seen some go really fast in bike lanes.
Cries.. ordered earlier in the week for $656 😅
