I'm selling my Xiaomi M365 Scooter


If you don't know much about these scooters, there's a good thread elsewhere on GZ on them. Probably the best-value e-scooter relative to price/performance/quality. Max speed in the late 20s (depending on firmware/rider weight!). Much more comfortable ride than the Lime scooters thanks to air-filled tyres, as well as much better brakes  (ABS on the front I think; disc on the rear). Amazing amount of fun and practicality for the money. Selling because I've decided to upgrade (to a Zero 10).


Specs and info here:; many reviews available on the internet.


  • Approximately four months old.
  • Travelled 362km, battery in good health (see screenshots below).
  • Has the 3d printed cushion insert to support the hinge joint, and has the 3d printed brake cable protection piece as well.
  • Tyres have Slime in them, and have never been punctured (fingers crossed!).
  • Currently running the mid-level firmware compiled by @michaelmurfy, but I can replace this with a standard version (wouldn't recommend the most recent, given this is supposed to shut out the use of third-party apps).
  • Comes with the second set of wheels.
  • Prefer pick-up (Palmerston North), but...
  • I have the original box, so can ship (at cost to buyer), or may be able to arrange a drop off in Wellington (or on way to Wgtn from PN).
  • Well looked after, and certainly never thrashed or abused in any way; some minor marks (can post photos later if wanted).
  • As is common with this model, some flex has developed in the stem; can trial it before purchasing.
  • $699 retail new - I'm asking $400 (plus shipping, if applicable).

The two times I've checked, there have been no s/h ones FS on Trade Me, so they appear to be fairly rare.


Any questions, please ask.

Palmy it is indeed.

I'm down in Wellington at the end of Easter so can arrange a drop-off or pick-up there and then, if based there (or en-route to Wgtn).

Can't edit post now so just to correct something: spare tyres, not wheels, included.

Sorry for not reading the post hard enough. It's probably not economical to ship but looks like a good deal so someone if getting a bargain.

Damn, that's a good price alright. Pity I don't have the $400 on hand or I'll buy this now (even Palmy North based) 😒

Even closer, given we work (or did work?) on the same campus!


My new scooter doesn't arrive until late April so I don't have to sell it until then - it may still be around for a bit... I'll wait for a week or so to see if there's interest here on GZ before posting on Trade Me, but the price there will be higher for sure!

Sold to a GZ member who's picking it up tonight. That sold quicker than I thought it would - clearly I under-priced it!


Now I have to face a whole month of driving to work, or - god forbid - getting on my bike...

<p style="line-through">What's the new scooter?</p>




That Zero 10 is way over the low-powered vehicle definition though, isn't it?


So you'd need to register it.
