Lucky bugger! I've started dropping hints to my wife about these, with part of the justification being my older son could take over my Mi to use that to get to school.

 

Is the 10 speed-limited by the importer like the 10X, and if so can that be be over-ridden with a different firmware? (Though I'm thinking 46kmh is probably fast enough!)

 

How's the suspension? And how are the brakes? (kinda critical given the speed its capable of.)

 

I saw in the M365 thread that Xiaomi are releasing a 'Pro' version of that scooter, seemingly with more range and faster top speed - my issue is that it doesn't seem any different in build, and while it's a great scooter for the money it's certainly not a robust device that will last for many moons (mine is already making some pretty ugly creaking, the source of which I can't find, and that's only after daily use for about seven weeks). That build quality (and decent suspension) is what would draw me towards a scooter like the 10, not just that faster speed. What did you end up paying for this?

My justification was partly supported by being able to sell my M365 and also the fact that the manufacturers recommended maximum weight is higher. My wife still has her M365 but she is lighter and does not use hers as much as I do.

 

Freedpev send a 2 page "Starter Guide" which details how to lower the power/speed output. I found last night that even on Level 1 (of 3) it outperforms the Xiaomi significantly.

 

The suspension is awesome. The ride seems more stable too. I noticed when looking behind I did not wobble like I do on the smaller scooters.

 

I paid $1799 but I noticed their price has gone up since. I would still thoroughly recommend this (or even the Zero 9) for anyone who wants to give their scooter plenty of use.

The power of my Zero 10 is so high that I am experimenting with lower settings. I want to find a balance between easy smooth takeoffs and scary fast takeoffs.
