Have a fun and thrilling ride with Mi Electric Scooter Pro 2: Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula 1 Edition

Built on the framework of the Xiaomi Mi Electric Scooter Pro 2, the design of the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 Team Edition offers a very different look, and if you’re into F1, you’ll recognise the famous grey, black and green colour scheme. The regular version is a matte grey finish, with a red accent around the front wheel. After seeing the Mercedes version in person, I definitely prefer it, I think it looks far more premium than the base model, but that Mercedes logo does come at a pretty big premium, when functionality-wise, they offer the same experience.

    I wonder how this compare with Costco Maserati Scooter. lol what's with all the car brand.

    • +12

      Costco one is better its the Ninebot G30 MAX with newer 400Watts motor, up to 65Km range, with full IPX5 water resistantt, no issue if you get caught in the rain.

      it is called Mechanophilia

        I thought that was my mate who watches Transformer x Gundam porn?

    I can finally afford a Mercedes. You beauty.

    BE WARNED, these are only IP54 waterproof rating, so if you get caught in the rain = VOID WARRANTY, good luck.
    A product with an IP54 rating is protected against dust ingress sufficient to prevent the product from operating normally but it's not dust tight. The product is fully protected against solid objects and splashing of water from any angle.

    • +10

      Isn't splashing water what you'd expect if you ride in the rain?

      • +4

        If you get caught riding through the middle of a lake it will probably stop working

        • +3

          If I got caught in the middle of a lake, I'd probably stop working as well.

        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IP_Code

        4: Splashing of water Water splashing against the enclosure from any direction shall have no harmful effect, utilizing either:

        a) an oscillating fixture, or b) A spray nozzle with no shield.

        Test a) is conducted for 10 minutes. b) is conducted (without shield) for 5 minutes minimum.
        Oscillating tube: Test duration: 10 minutes, or spray nozzle (same as IPX3 spray nozzle with the shield removed)

        5: Water jets Water projected by a nozzle (6.3 mm (0.25 in)) against enclosure from any direction shall have no harmful effects. Test duration: 1 minute per square meter for at least 3 minutes

        Water volume: 12.5 litres per minute Pressure: 30 kPa (4.4 psi) at distance of 3 meters (9.8 ft)

        Bad formatting but you get the idea… wouldnt 4 be plenty fine if you're riding in the rain? I can't imagine the amount of pressure when riding in water to be as extreme as a jet of water.

    if only i can ride this in NSW

    • But you can in you private property or someone else's private property.

      • +9

        But you can in you private property

        Riding is circles around your Hills Hoist loses its appeal after a while….

      • +3

        or someone else's private property.

        Can't do that in VIC at the moment either…

      • True… But this really doesn't mean much since these e-scooters are widely known to be great for commuting to work/school/uni.

        Riding it in private property would be purely recreational - And on an underpowered e-scooter like this, it wouldn't be very fun either :(

    • or VIC

      • Wouldn't be very feasible for ChiMot to want to ride this in Victoria if they live in NSW :/

        • -5

          I think it's fine, unless they live in a red zone…

      It really is quite unfortunate that our laws are so backwards here…

      Have a read over my comment on this thread. It should give you some hope :)

      • Rode through Olympic Park today and on multiple instances we had lads flying past us on electric scooters that had to have been going 30-40km/hr + on the small narrow footpaths. Hollering and going on as they went past. Even around blind corners. So yes I finally understand why these laws are in place now coz they want to be able to throw the book at these morons if they get caught. Wasn’t a cop in sight? Go figure.

        • You sure you went to the right Olympic Park? :)

          I ride there quite often and haven't seen a single e-scooter in sight…

          • @Zackeroo: Yes we rode for about 25kms in and around the surrounding suburbs of OP. Why are you even questioning the fact that e-scooters go through there? Just coz you haven't seen them doesn't mean they don't exist??

            • +1

              @Smol Cat: I live 3-4 mins away from Olympic Park.

              on multiple instances we had lads flying past us on electric scooters that had to have been going 30-40km/hr + on the small narrow footpaths. Hollering and going on as they went past. Even around blind corners.

              Just coz you haven't seen them doesn't mean they don't exist??

              It's more than just that. You specifically mention that on "multiple instances" you had these "lads" going 30-40km/hr on "small narrow footpaths".

              As a local resident, I would be quite surprised to see this happen just once… But for people to demonstrate this behaviour on MULTIPLE instances is where my "questioning" lies.

              Ever since I read your comment I've been thinking about this… I have indeed seen people riding e-scooters around Olympic Park, but every one of these scooters were simple Segway or Xiaomi scooters. They were all riding individually and funny enough were in suits. They seemed to be sensibly using their scooter as an environmentally friendly mode of transport on their way to work.

              Hope this clarifies everything.

  • So no spec upgrades? seems like the horsepower and range is exactly the same as the regular variant.

    600watt power
    45km range
    25Km speed limits

    • yes just the cosmetic changes.

      • +2

        This is PoPo magnet.

        • Seriously any e scooters that look like a regular one and can be pushed by foot?

    • I’d like to know how this compares to the standard model too…

      Unfortunately, this is a trend for e-scooters. The branding is the only real differentiating factor, meaning any slightly bigger e-scooters would be quicker than this overly glorified "Mercedes AMG" e-scooter.

      • Unfortunately, this is a trend for e-scooters.

        It's the trend for everything. Build a desirable brand, then licence the hell out of it for any shit product that wants to pay you to use your brand to sell their junk.
        George Lucas was one of the pioneers of this concept.

  • +23

    High yield investment scooter!

    • +2

      Finally a high yield investment I can afford!

  • Genuine question - to complete the look I need Lewis' jacket that I can't seem to find in the shop - like this - where to find? The one he wears seems to go down almost knee length (vs the one in shop which is like hip length).

    • Is he trying to look shorter?

    • +1

      i don't think they sell that one, at least that's what I remember reading on reddit. it does look nice though

      unfortunately you are not #blessed

  • what's with the shitty branding over normal products these days?
    Adding AMG to name wont make it drive like one!

    • +2

      You can always mod it to drive like one.

      • Can they take off at the traffic lights and do a mono?

    • +3

      …these days?

      Upvote if you can remember the Reebok Nissan Pulsar: shorturl.at/vFZ26

    • what's with the shitty branding over normal products these days?

      Profits.
      Brand Licencing is where the easy money is at these days. Just look at how rich the Kardashians are.

  • +1

    I'm too fat otherwise I would buy one 😒

    • If it helps mate:

      It does support a max load of up to 100kg. If you’re borderline to that, it is important to remember to include the weight of a backpack (with laptop and accessories) in your weight calculations if you plan on commuting with it.

      • +1

        Plenty of people over that ride these around.

      • +1

        I'm at least 95kg naked weight. When commuting with backpack (+ some groceries aso on my way back) will be well over :(

    • +2

      If you're overweight you might be better off walking anyway

      • -1

        Can be over the weight limit of this and not overweight if you are not a short arse

        • That's true, but the user I was replying to specifically said they were too fat

      • Or just get a regular scooter. Smaller, lighter, cheaper and better for your fitness and the environment.

    • Good excuse for you to start losing some weight first before you buy one.

  • AMG lol

  • +7

    Wonder how long it would take the F1 pit team to change the tyres on these…

    • +1

      Depends,

      50 seconds if you're in Germany

      11 seconds if you're in Italy

      • +1

        And if I’m in Monaco?

    Before anyone asks, e-scooters are NOT allowed to be ridden in NSW (Except on Private Property).

    A trial was proposed earlier this year, however, the former minister for transport and roads, Andrew Constance, was "not in the mood" - Headlining on The Sydney Morning Herald as, "NSW abandons electric scooter trial because minister ‘not in the mood’".

    All hope is not lost fellow people of NSW… Just 5 days ago, an article on The Daily Telegraph titled, "Electric scooter trial could power up economy" was posted.

    Direct link (There is a paywall): https://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/news/nsw/electric-scooter-...

    The timing of this article was no co-incidence. Andrew Constance has now resigned from his previous position as the Minister for Transport and Roads. This means that NOW is the time to push for these backward NSW laws to be changed!!

    E-scooters are an excellent, economical way to travel. They would reduce congestion on the road and make more use of our bike paths. In my opinion, rental e-scooters shouldn't even be implemented as they would just cause a mess around NSW. Private e-scooters on the other hand, these should be allowed.

    • +4

      Same in VIC. Scooters of max speed >10kmph are considered as motorbikes and rego should be paid.

      • +4

        Yup. It's quite unfortunate that Victoria has these backward laws too.

        My comment was to inform people before the usual "Is this legal in NSW?" comment was posted. I live in NSW as well which is the reason why I didn't mention VIC.

    • -5

      Same in Victoria. I think they simply banned to avoid problems in the future. If you look at similar incidents around the world, it is safer to ban them if I would be a politician.

      • Same in Victoria.

        There's a trial commencing soon, i believe next year in a few municipalities.

      • +4

        As terrible as that incident was… If the man was on a bicycle, it wouldn't have changed a thing.

        • +5

          That's my take on the road I cycle for 50km at an average of over 30km/h+ and many people do on bike paths and footpaths as well.

          These in reality are slower than an competent rider and no more of a risk imo.

    • -5

      E-scooters are an excellent, economical way to travel.

      Any also extremely dangerous. So need to make sure there are appropriate rules around their use in public spaces.

      • I agree!! As proposed in the past, the speed limit on footpaths would be 10km/h while bicycle paths and residential streets would have a 25km/h cap.

        Additionally, I wouldn't even mind it if every e-scooter rider was to complete a short course before being able to ride their e-scooter. This would most definitely be a good way to encourage safe behaviour on these e-scooters.

        • -3

          Plus helmet, plus registration…

          • @jv: For sure, I didn't mention a helmet since it's by far the most well-known safety pre-caution for bicycles.

            I'm curious as to what you had in mind for e-scooter registration. Were you implying that users should pay to have their e-scooters registered? - Or do you think this should be free?

            • @Zackeroo:

              I didn't mention a helmet since it's by far the most well-known safety pre-caution

              Yet most of the e-scooter riders I see riding around are not wearing one…

              • @jv: Hmm that's weird. Where I live, I can't remember the last time I've seen an e-scooter rider without a helmet.

            • @Zackeroo:

              I'm curious as to what you had in mind for e-scooter registration.

              Some way of identifying them for when they injure someone, or damage a vehicle, there is a way to report them to police or the insurance company.
