Segway Ninebot eKickScooter E10 $349 + Delivery (Free C&C/ in-Store) @ JB Hi-Fi

170

Looks like JB has price matched Aldi. Cheaper shipping too ($9.99 with JB compared to $19.99 with Aldi).

If combining mastercard and The home card deal, brings down to roughly $289 for C&C.

As VIC only allows this one to be used, anyone care to comment on how usable this is? Wanting to get for my 11 year old niece for school commute.

    Wanting to get for my 11 year old niece for school commute.

    In QLD you have to be 16 to ride unsupervised and 12 to ride under adult supervision.

      Are you serious…

      Danggg. And here I thought the power saving mode had that covered.

      So those who are using it now are all technically not following the rules?

        I see these all the time now in Vic, illegal scooters that is, more and more out there. Either they'll become legal or a hard stance will be taken. Especially if we see an incident related to one. A fine is worth double what this scooter is I believe.

          Good article for those of us in Vic. Maybe by lockdown 7 we'll see some movement

          You should worry more with the electric bike used by the food couriers. They ride it so bloody fast, and when the traffic light is red they just ride on the footpath and cross the road along with the pedestrians. Sneaky they are and becoming annoying.

            @brongz: Who said I was worried?

          Wait till you find out motor vehicles kill more people annually than covid each year in Australia. Every. Single. Year.

          Blaming it on scooters for going 25kph (if not modified dangerous) is stupid.

      It's rated top speed does not matter, just like a car/motorbike etc travelling on any public road, as long as you are not travelling faster than the current 10km/h limit.

        Doesn't the law also state it's not to have a motor more than 200 Watts. I can't find the wattage on this but I can guarantee it's more than 200 like most scooters

        •  

          I couldn't find any official rating. Catch and some ebay listings advertise this as "200W"

        •  

          Law states (in WA): "Compliant e-scooters can only be legally ridden on low speed WA public roads and paths if their maximum power output is no more than 200 watts and they cannot travel more than 10 km/h on level ground."

          Segway website states:
          Motor Max. Power: 200W
          Maximum Speed: 16km/h
          Payload: 20-60kg
          Recommended Age: 8-14 years (please take your local laws into consideration)
          Height: 130-160 cm

          I say the "they cannot travel more than 10km/h on level ground" is a crap way to put it as there are too many variables. When riding this amongst pedestrians you should aim to not go over 10km/h, and if the scooter doesn't tell you your speed, use a mount and Waze or google maps on your phone. If fined, I'd take this to court. Just sucks that we are limited to scooters recommended for 8-14 year olds.

    At least the speed is not ridiculously fast as an electric bike that the food couriers use in the street of Melbourne CBD.

    So, by logic the law should accomodate this kind of electric scooters. Hopefully soon.

    In Victoria our old state opposition leader Matthew guy rides one all the time he says it's the best thing he's ever bought, clearly doesn't know the laws of his own state maybe someone needs to get him on side and the laws could be changed.

    •  

      Maybe that’s the reason why he is the opposition leader? 😂

    Could someone please explain the Mastercard and home card deal to arrive at $289 price In OP description?

    •  

      Using the discounted (~7.5%) Mastercard gift cards from Coles to buy Home cards at 10% off, so roughly a 17% discount in total.
