    Just a reminder, this is illegal in some states. Check your local rules and regulations first. If police are having a bad day and feel like taking it on you, you can be slugged with upto $2500 fine and several demerit points. For some reason, this is as bad as driving an unregistered car.

      Even if you are riding on the footpath with a helmet on?

      • +2 votes

        Yup. However in saying that, some cops might let it slide if they see that you are driving carefully and are wearing safety gear. They might just give you a verbal warning given that pretty much everyone rides one in the inner city.

        No guarantees tho.

        Well now you're driving an unregistered car on the footpath

        •  

          imagine getting fine for driving unregistered vehicle in footpath lol

      •  

        yes, in many states, they are only allowed on private roads

        I got swiped by one of these in the CBD. I was on a footpath with my morning coffee.

        I'm not entirely against some kind of rider education before you let just anyone ride these at those speeds.

        • +1 vote

          I mean for a solid portion of them its a slower speed than a fast jog and only adds 20kg hitting you.
          What im saying is no different to someone jogging into you.
          But yeah for some of the faster ones it certainly could increase the injury chance. So something people could do to actually get some skill wouldn't be a bad idea.

        There have been cases of people getting seriously hurt or dying from being hit by electric scooters. So it's not just the riders that can get hurt.

      The fines just a deterrent, if they made it less than a unregistered car, people would think that's a message that it's OK to do.

      Where they are illegal if you hit someone you could be liable for their injuries . $2500 fine is cheap compared

      Because the NSW Government are cuuunts.

    •  

      How can they cut demerit points? It's not car or bike related offence.. . ( not having a go, just curious)..

    •  

      The E10 may be legal in WA

        200kw? phwoar

        •  

          Ooops.

          Yes, I do like Clarkson

    •  

      NSW will be making them legal soon.

      •  

        Didn't Contstance say no to the trial cause he wasn't in the mood.

          yes but it'll still get through

          Constance is a fool. escooters will be left in trees
          Yeah, I buy a $700 scooter and throw it in a tree.
          Then I see $700+ scooters hanging in trees and I just leaveit there cuz I literally wouldn't pick up money on the street.

          But ebikes are OK.

    Despite being illegal in Victoria they're bloody everywhere in the CBD now. Plenty on the paths too at very dangerous speeds.

    Not sure if this law is ever really enforced but I still wouldn't risk buying one, myself.

    •  

      They are legal in Victoria if under 200w and under 10kmh.

      I don't believe the ones in the op are suitable, but they do exist

      •  

        Just like pedelec bikes are legal if you still have to pedal to make them work (and they're underpowered); yet all the EASI ones go around with throttle buttons, all over the place.

        CBD feels like a free for all these days.

        They are legal in Victoria if under 200w and under 10kmh.

        Completely unpractical to enforce these parameters by Victoria Police. They would rather enjoy those donuts.

        • +2 votes

          Very practical to enforce just get the speed gun out.

          But yeah it would cut in on donut time

            @Tleyx: $2500 would buy a lot of donuts.

    Might as well spend another $100 buy xiaomi pro 2 40kms run time

      How often would you need that?

    •  

      40kms? That’s amazing run time.

      Or get the Segway E45 when its on special (its just an E25 with add-on battery) on ebay with 15%-20% off deals.
      Don't have to worry about flat tires.

      •  

        This.
        Plus it has a higher waterproof rating.

        •  

          How so? They both say IPX4.

  •  

    Can anyone recommend some decent gloves for an electric scooter?
    Cheers

      Motorcycle gloves . Alpinestar

  •  

    Delivery extra might make xiaomi 1s cheaper while on deal

  •  

    anyone finding their website just loading nothing?

      Maybe because the deal won't happen until another 13 days?

        oh… but even the search bar didnt work

    Or wait for JB HiFi to have the Ninebot Max on special again for $799. I did 38km on mine yesterday and it still had 25% charge.

    This thing is woefully underpowered, so much less cells in parallel. Not even slightly worth it.

    There is a grassroots movement who strives to get these legalised. There may be some positive news on the horizon on the back of the recent consultation on innovative vehicles by the NTC.
    If you are interested, follow this page and maybe sign the petition if you are so inclined. https://electricriders.org.au/

    I would love to own and ride one of these, in fact I have been doing a bit of research and I would like to buy a NineBot Max G30 eventually. However, considering the population density in Melbourne CBD (during non-COVID time), I don't think it's entirely harmless to just let people riding these scooters and roam free without any kind of restriction or rule. Let's just hope it's legalised soon enough….

    Legal in Queensland with a 25km/h maximum speed however we can't ride them in a bike lane. 25km/h on the footpath with pedestrians is OK, bike path isn't … not sure who had that brain fart.

    •  

      Not allowed on onroad bikelanes, but yes they are allowed on bikepaths. They are also allowed on all the new segregated bikelanes in the Brisbane CBD.

  •  

    I managed to pick up a pair of G30 ' s recently for just over $600 each from ebay, 2nd hand refurbished but one only had 4km ride time recorded. Came with a years warranty too so Im happy as a pig in mud.
    Took them out for about an hour Saturday morning and Im very impressed. They have different speed modes and Sport mode is required for anything more that a bit of a slope if you are heavy like me but for general cruising on cycle paths the standard D mode seems fine. The only downside we see so far is locking them up anywhere we go as they are too heavy to lug about if you just pop to the shops etc.

    •  

      apparently you can hack the firmware on the G30s. have you done that?

      • +1 vote

        Yes… mine goes about 33kph now….
        There are several options… USA segways go about 30kph, so if your scooter serial became a USA one for example (as simple as a new prefix on the serial) it can go faster… I did try this, but my friends scooter went faster, so I needed to try harder

        To get beyond 30, requires what’d I’d actually consider firmware hacking.. many google guides on this… perhaps scooterhacking.org is a good place to start

    seem under power for like $100 less from Xiaomi so no deal

    Hey guys, how do you choose? What is 7% hill grade? I have no idea what's needed or not. Of course I don't need electric on a flat road, I can push.
    I want a smaller one so it looks like a normal scooter
