Our Range of Speedway Scooters
As Australia's largest electric scooter retailer, we have an enviable selection of Xiaomi scooters:
Xiaomi Pro 2 Electric Scooter: New in 2020, the Xiaomi Pro 2 springboards from the best-selling model M365 Pro, but including upgraded safety features. The Pro 2 is Xiaomi’s premium level e-scooter, complete with a 300W motor, 25kph top speed and range of 45km. It comes with Xiaomi's customary air-filled tyres and a trendy integrated display.
While your Xiaomi's standard power output is 300W, the motor can deliver up to 600W output in challenging situations. This is handy if you had a big lunch, and come too close to the Pro 2’s 100kg weight limit - or if you just need to climb hills regularly. The Pro 2 also has a larger construction than the 1S and Essential e-scooters, so the Pro 2 provides the most stable ride possible from a Xiaomi e-scooter.
Now with maximum visibility due to the front, side and rear reflectors, meeting the latest European standards, as well as ultra bright front and rear lights, the Pro 2 also keeps you safer on your daily and nightly ride too.
Your Xiaomi's electronic front brake brings you to a safe, but controlled stop, using a braking system that can recover small amounts of energy and feed it back into the motor. This is called kinetic energy recovery system (impressive right!) plus your rear wheel mechanical disk brake keeps you safe as houses.
Xiaomi 1S Electric Scooter: A new model for 2020, the Xiaomi 1S succeeds the highly successful M365 electric scooter. With upgraded safety equipment and a new integrated bluetooth-enabled stem-mounted display, this is the next level up from the Essential in the Xiaomi e-scooter range.
Building on the successful Xiaomi M365 formula, the 1S now includes reflectors on the front, side and rear providing 360 degree visibility, improving rider safety. Also fitted with ultra bright front and rear lights for night riding, the 1S meets the latest European standards.
Under the deck, the Xiaomi 1S preserves the M365’s tried and tested 250W motor power, with a max speed of 25km h, and cruising distance of 30km. It also has air-filled tyres for a smooth ride, even over a long range. It's practically light as a feather weighing in at just 12.5kg, so carrying it up flights of stairs, or on to buses and trains a piece of cake. Maximum load of 100kg, and best for dry conditions, this one doesn't play well with water either.
With too many extras to mention them all - rear disk brake, cruise control, built in mud guards plus more - any scooter rider is sure to love this one!
Xiaomi M365 Electric Scooter: Well-known as one of the most outstanding electric scooters globally, the Xiaomi M365 is a great value, lightweight and easily portable e-scooter. Powered by a 250W front wheel motor, it has a top speed of 25kph, enabling you to cover two miles in just eight minutes (that's faster than walking speed!).
Air-filled tyres keep your ride smooth as glass, while the easy folding mechanism and the lightweight construction allows you to quickly fold your scooter down for storage or transport. Max load of 100kg, and best for dry conditions, this one doesn't play well with water.
Xiaomi Essential Electric Scooter: The Xiaomi Essential is the entry-level model from the maker of the world’s best-selling electric scooter, the M365.
The Essential is built to provide innovative personal mobility at an affordable price, without sacrificing quality or usability. Weighing just 12kg, the Essential's folding design makes it one of the easiest e-scooters to fold up and carry when you need to – up stairs, on and off public transport, or into your home or office.
The Xiaomi Essential features a 250W rated motor with a 20kph top speed and 20km range, comfortable air-filled tyres and stylish Bluetooth-enabled integrated display unit with three selectable power modes.
The Essential is fantastic model to begin your scooting journey on, and use iScoot's trade-up policy when you're ready. Contact Us for more info!

Generally, electric scooters are allowed on private property without restrictions.
The rules differ across the States of Australia, so please check with your local State road traffic authority to be certain of the local laws for details regarding:

We are located in Queensland, where electric scooters are considered a wheeled recreational device, so they may be used on footpaths only. They may not be used on roads, or designated bicycle lanes.
Riders must be aged 12 or over and supervised by an adult until aged 16. Helmets are mandatory, and speeds must be limited to 25kph.
Please view the full information here on the New South Wales Centre for Road Safety site.
New South Wales road rules currently stipulate that “powered foot scooters…cannot be registered and can only be used on private land.” As such, it is illegal to ride an electric scooter anywhere in New South Wales, other than on private property.
Victorian law stipulates that a motorised scooter cannot travel faster than 10km/h. Additionally, a motorised scooter must have a maximum power output of 200 watts or less. Electric scooters that do not meet these stipulations can be used on private property, but not in public.
If an electric scooter fails to meet these requirements, it is classified as a motor vehicle. If classified as a motor vehicle, the electric scooter must be registered, and the rider must have a valid motorcycle license. Please see VicRoads details here.
In South Australia, it is illegal to ride an electric scooter on the road, footpath, bicycle track, or anywhere other than private property. Under South Australian law, electric scooters are considered motor vehicles, with the relevant SA Transport law explaining “operating a motor vehicle requires a driver’s licence, registration and compulsory third party insurance. As these devices [electric scooters] do not meet the safety standards under the Australian Design Rules they are not eligible for registration.”
Currently, Western Australian laws via the motor vehicle licensing branch stipulate that electric scooters must travel at 10km/h or less, and “must not be used on footpaths and paths designed for shared use by pedestrians and bicycles.” In Western Australia any unlicensed electric scooters may only be used on private property. These rules apply to petrol and electrical powered scooters and mini motorcycles.
A motorised scooter cannot travel faster than 10km/h in Tasmania, and must have a power output of no more than 200 watts. If these stipulations are not met, the electric scooter is deemed to be a motor vehicle. However, electric scooters cannot be registered as motor vehicles in Tasmania as they fail to meet the minimum safety requirements. As such, any e-scooter that has a power output of more than 200 watts can only be used on private property in Tasmania. Please see info from the Tasmanian department of Transport here.
In the Northern Territory, a motorised foot scooter is typically a wheeled recreation device equipped with an engine or motor of some description. Motorised scooters with a power output greater than 200 watts are defined as motor vehicles in the NT Motor Vehicles Act. As motor vehicles, motorised scooters used on roads, or in public places, need to be registered and ridden by licensed riders. However, motorised scooters are not designed or manufactured to comply with registration requirements and national safety standards for road vehicles, such as Australian Design Rules (ADRs). Therefore, they cannot be granted registration for on-road use and may not be ridden on public roads or places open to the public (including footpaths, bike paths, carparks, etc.
From 1 July 2017, a personal mobility device (such as a Segway or Segway-type device) can be used in the ACT. There are strict rules and regulations applying to the use of these devices.

From 20 December 2019, the framework for personal mobility devices was amended to include e-scooters and other similar devices.
