Summer is already near, so many of us are starting to consider which two-wheeler to purchase for the season. In this post, I will be writing about the most popular electric scooters, which you can buy for a fair price. Taken a price and quality of a scooter into consideration, I would point out these electric scooters – Xiaomi M365 and Ninebot ES2.

Xiaomi M365

First of all, let’s talk about Xiaomi M365. This scooter got Red Dot “Best of the Best” Award, as well as the iF Design Award 2017 for the minimal yet modern design.

Take a look around you can see a lot of people are riding M365 in the streets nowadays – those red lines all over the scooter, red wire, and larger wheels, make it stand out from other e-scooters

The Good

  1. Smother ride because of Shock-absorbing tires.
  2. A disc braking and eABS regenerative anti-lock braking system.
  3. Comfortable acceleration.

The Bad

  1. No led screen display.
  2. Longer charging time (Approx. 5 hours).
  3. No shock suspensers.

Ninebot ES2

We can say, that Ninebot ES2 by Segway is a younger Xiaomi M365 brother. Segway-Ninebot owned by Xiaomi, so it’s not strange that both electric scooters – Xiaomi M365 and Ninebot ES2 look similar.

The Good

  1. Maneuverable.
  2. Upgradable with an additional battery.
  3. Led screen display.
  4. Charging time – 3,5 hours.

The Bad

  1. Smaller tires made out of rubber make less suspension.
  2. After longer use, You can hear a rattling/clatter from the various parts.
  3. Lesser travel distance.
  4. Higher price.
Ninebot ES2

I would like to say, that the Xiaomi M365 declaration of 30 km (18.6 miles) for travel distance sounds good, but in reality, if Your weight is about 80-85 kg (176-187 lbs), like mine, Your travel distance will be about 22-26 km (13-16 miles). Surely for that, you have to take weather and road conditions into the account.

Segway declares that the Ninebot ES2 can travel 25 km (15,5 miles) when the battery is fully charged. In reality, it could only travel 14-17 km (8,7 – 10,5 miles) (riders weight – 80-85 kg (176-187 lbs)). Also, as I said, you need to take weather and road conditions into the account.


I want to note that Ninebot ES2 has rear and front shock absorbers that reduce bumps and make a ride more softly. Nevertheless, using Xiaomi M365 commuting will feel more comfortable than on ES2, because of larger pneumatic tires and smooth acceleration.

Moreover, M365 can cover a longer distance and take a higher incline than ES2. In addition to that, on constant ES2 use, You can hear rattling/clatter noises from the scooter also M365 is cheaper than ES2.

On the other hand, ES2 is upgradable with an extra battery. This way, it will cover about 15-20 km (9,3-12,4 miles) more, and its top speed will be 30 kph (18,6 mph). But in my opinion, an attached battery is not worth its price. Because, if you put together ES2’s and additional battery’s prices – on this price range, you can buy a better electric scooter, like Xiaomi M365 PRO.

So, by following with the above, I can say, that, if you looking for a street scooter for a fair price – Xiaomi M365 is the best choice for the season.

  1. Hey, i just read it all but it’s because, i don’t know which one to buy. I just write the things I like and then maybe you can help me which one to buy. 1. I like speed 2. I like long trips.

    • Hi, thanks for commenting. If you are choosing from these 2 scooters, pick Xiaomi M365, because it has a longer travel range. Moreover, its shock-absorption is far better, than Ninebot ES2, because of pneumatic tires. If you want to cover very long travel distances in one charge (40-60 km), pick Xiaomi M365 Pro or Ninebot Max, but these scooters are more expensive.
