Xiaomi M365 Scooter arrived on Sunday from Amazon Italy. Amazon Spain was only available for Spanish Prime customers. France was out of stock of the black but was €20 cheaper. I originally ordered it from France and was going to wait but had forgot all about Italy. When I checked they had stock so cancelled the France order and bought from Italy on Tuesday evening. Amazon logistics is so funny sometimes. Ordered from Italy, dispatched from France although they are still showing as out of stock and original shipping labels shows it was from Spain. Xiaomi have an official outlet in Spain so I'd imagine all of Amazon's stocks will originate from there.
It would have been cheaper from China but there's a small chance of being taxed, the delivery time is 1-2 months and there is pretty much zero warranty on it. Amazon EU provides a 2 year warranty and was deliverable within a week.
Bought it so I can ride along with the youngest as she's just starting out on a bike. We're on a quiet estate but a lot of cars just fly round and cut around corners so have to keep up with her and watch out for the idiots. Will be much easier than pulling my bike out of the garage each time she ventures out. Also going to use it for short errands to save jumping into the car. So far I've been to the post office a couple of times and have just done a run to Argos in the town centre.
Fun little toy. Top speed of 15 mph and will go 18 miles on a single charge but more likely 10-15 depending on how it's ridden.
Not legal to use on roads or pavements but as long as it's used sensibly the police don't seem to mind.
