Xiaomi M365 Pro Features

  • The motor, speed, and acceleration of the scooter.

While it features a 300 watts motor which may seem like it’s not a lot, but at its peak, it can deliver a power-packed performance of 600 watts. The motor does not start automatically like few other models, which means to get this electric scooter going, you will have to kick it manually, but once it starts, it can reach the top speed in just 5.3 seconds! The power of acceleration shows you just how amazing the motor is. This motor allows the electric scooter to reach a maximum speed of 15 miles per hour. While this is not the perfect choice for those who want to offroad and ride on steep hills, it is great for riding in the city where the hills aren’t too steep. The motor is well equipped to deal with those kinds of terrain, but nothing extreme.

  • The battery and range of the scooter.

This electric scooter is powered by a high-grade 474 watt-hour lithium-ion battery. This battery helps power this scooter up and allows the rider to use this scooter for about 25-27 miles on a single charge. The battery also charges up quickly, in just about 8 to 9 hours. The range of the scooter may vary according to the weight of the rider, the terrain one chooses to ride on, and other factors, but you can easily expect a 25-mile range. 

  • The LED display of the scooter.

The cockpit of the M365 Pro has an awesome LED display screen that has all the information you will require while riding this beast. The screen is bright, which makes it clearly visible even when the sun is shining very brightly. The screen displays the speed of the scooter, the battery, Bluetooth mode, and different riding modes. You can also control the lights from the cockpit. 

This electric scooter features three different modes of riding. The three modes have different speeds – 9 miles per hour, 12 miles per hour, and 15 miles per hour. The brakes are also right there, along with the bell, accelerator, and high-quality hand grips which make sure you stay safe and that your hands don’t slip off. Connect your phone to the Bluetooth and download the app for better control over this scooter.

  • The build of the M365 Pro.

Made with materials that stand the test of time, this electric scooter is also water-resistant, meaning that you can also ride this in the rain! The deck of this electric scooter is a bit wider than the original M365. The 2-inch increase in length makes this scooter very comfortable to ride and gives your feet more space to rest. While this is quite a lightweight electric scooter, please don’t confuse that with the quality of the materials used. Made with the best aluminum alloy, this electric scooter will stay with you for a long time to come!

  • The aesthetic value of this electric scooter.

Sleek and stylish, this scooter matches up to the excellent performance it gives. With front and rear LED lights, you can safely ride this scooter at night, but only if you have prior experience with riding scooters at night. For beginners, it might be a bit daunting. We love that this scooter can be folded up easily when not in use. 

  • The tires of the scooter.

This electric scooter has two 8.5×2-inch pneumatic tires. By pneumatic, we basically mean air-filled inner tube tires. The rubber used for the tires is very strong and durable, so it can endure rough terrain as well. The tires also make it suitable for the rider to use this electric scooter when the roads are wet or when it is raining. While pneumatic tires can still get flat, the riding comfort and safety are unmatched with these electric scooters.

  • The braking system of the scooter.

With a front regenerative braking system and rear mechanical disc braking system, you get great control overriding the scooter. These brakes are effective and responsive. This electric scooter has also undergone many braking tests to see how powerful and effective these are, and we are happy to say that the M365 passed with flying colors!

  • The riding comfort of the scooter.

Most people might feel that a 300-watt electric scooter can’t compare with other high-end electric scooters there are, but after they take the M365 Pro out for a spin, they will realize how awesome the riding feel is. It is very easy to maneuver and get used to, adding to very intuitive riding experience. The tires are grippy and stable, making you feel safe even on terrain that can be a bit tricky. A wider and longer deck with great stability, there is nothing to dislike when it comes to the feel of the electric scooter. In the case of the Xiaomi M365 Pro, you get what you pay for. While there is not an additional suspension system, the tires do a great job of absorbing any additional jerks and bumps.
