The Xiaomi M365 Pro is a powerful electric scooter designed for commuters and leisure riders alike. This scooter offers a range of features, from a high-powered motor to a rugged design, making it an ideal choice for those looking for a reliable and affordable option for their daily travels.
With its high-performance battery and advanced safety features, the Xiaomi M365 Pro is an impressive scooter that can turn a regular commute into a thrilling ride. In this review, we’ll take a closer look at the Xiaomi M365 Pro and explore its features, performance, and value.
With a weight of 14.2kg, it’s not exactly easy to pick up and carry. It’s also pretty heavy compared to most other electric scooters, which weigh between 8kg and 12kg. The scooter is the same size and weight as it is heavy. With a 45cm x 15cm deck to stand on and a handlebar that rises 99cm above the deck, it is clearly different from a non-electric scooter, and when you stand on the M365 Pro, you can feel how powerful it is.
There is a display between the handlebars that tells you your speed, the percentage of your battery while you’re charging, and what speed mode you’re in. The screen looks like it has more options, but you will have a problem figuring out how to use them. When you press the button below the display, the scooter turns on.
A single press turns the headlight on or off, a double press changes the speed mode, and a hold turns the scooter off. Because the handlebars are so big, it’s hard to press unless you have big hands. These handlebars were easy to hold on to and didn’t hurt your hands, even if you did it for a long time or in the rain.
The kickstand is on the left side of the deck near the back. We found it easy to open with just one quick kick, and it’s easy to do it without thinking. With its black body and red accents, the Xiaomi M365 Pro scooter has a pretty good look overall.
The power cable that comes with the scooter can be plugged into a port near the front wheel to charge it. This charging seemed to take a long time. After about 30 minutes of charging, the battery was only 8% full, which means that the battery drains faster than it charges. This won’t be a problem if you plug it in every time you’re at home, but if you use it a lot, you’ll need to make sure you have enough time to charge it often.
The real capacity of the Xiaomi M365 Pro is 474Wh, which is much higher than the non-Pro model’s 280Wh. If you don’t charge often, you can stick with the Pro.
When You Climb a Hill
The M365 Pro is better at climbing hills than the original M365, the TurboAnt X7 Pro, the Segway Ninebot Max, and the Gotrax G4. With a 74 kg rider, the Pro can climb our standard 60 m, 10% average grade hill in 15.6 seconds, which has been certified by ESG. It averaged 14.0 km/h, which is a little faster than the Segway Ninebot Max.
It is also close to the more powerful Fluid FreeRide Horizon electric scooter, which only goes uphill 0.2 mph faster. The Pro will slow down on very steep hills, but you’ll have enough power to go up most hills.
A 300-watt lithium-ion battery gives the Xiaomi Pro an ESG-certified range of 40.4 kilometers. Even though it only weighs 14 kg, the M365 Pro has the best range per pound of any scooter so far. The ride is made to feel like a real, fast commute in a city.
The Braking System
The scooter has two types of brakes: a regenerative brake in the front and a mechanical disc brake in the back. Both brakes are linked, and one brake lever controls them both. Even though the brakes are controlled by cables, they work smoothly because the cables are well-made and routed.
Through the Bluetooth-enabled app, you can change how strong the regenerative brake is. Keep in mind that the maximum setting for the regen brakes makes them very strong.
When Your Ride It
The Xiaomi M365 Pro has three riding modes: “Eco,” “Driving,” and “S,” which stands for “Speed Mode.” The “S” is a bit of a mystery. You can switch between them by pressing the button between the handlebars twice. This is hard to do while driving, so when you wanted to change speed, you would have to stop or slow down.
Eco Mode has a top speed of 9.3mph, which is good for getting around busy roads and weaving through cars waiting in traffic. It also used less battery than other modes. But it felt a little too slow for all but the busiest or quietest roads, and Driving mode was often better for these situations.
In driving mode, you can go up to 20 km/h (12.4 mph), which is the right speed to keep up with cyclists. You used this a lot when there were a lot of cyclists or drivers around because it’s slow enough to be safe but fast enough that you didn’t feel like you were in the way at all. When you can, though, you can switch to Speed Mode and enjoy the scooter’s real top speed of 15.5mph.
The fastest electric scooters can go up to 50 kilometers per hour (30 miles per hour), but most people don’t need to go that fast on the road. When you hold down the accelerator button, the motor doesn’t turn on. Instead, you have to be moving for it to work, so you have to start moving like you normally would on a scooter and then hold down the button.
Acceleration felt great in all modes. You can take off quickly and pass cyclists and other scooters as soon as you start moving. Whether you were driving slowly through traffic in Eco Mode or burning rubber in Speed Mode, the motor always felt pretty quiet. Most of the time, you could barely hear it over the honking and shouting of a busy city.
At faster speeds and on hills, the sound did get louder, but it was never too loud to be comfortable. But there were a few things that didn’t feel so good when you were going to drive this scooter. The tires didn’t have much grip, so if you didn’t slow down before you brake, it took a long time to stop, especially when it was wet.
Also, the handlebars don’t turn very much, so when you were going slowly around tight corners, you often had to make wide turns. This didn’t matter much when you were actually driving, though, because your body did most of the turning.
The Xiaomi Pro is easy to carry around. It weighs 14 kg and folds into a small package that is 112 cm long, 43 cm wide, and 48 cm tall, which is only 5 cm longer than the M365. It does not have handlebars that fold up, but it does fold up. Both the M365 and the Pro have the same folding mechanism, which has caused problems for some riders because it lets the stem bend when you push forward.
It has a lever that locks the stem in place. The stem is also held in place by a safety collar that can be turned. The collar keeps the rider from pulling on the lever by accident. It’s a good design, but not quite as solid as the mechanism on the Segway Ninebot Max, which is also a good design.
The mechanism is quick to unlock and lock into place, which is better for commuters than the swingarm collar-style folding mechanisms found on most high-performance scooters. When the stem is folded, it locks to the back wheel so that it is easy to carry. Some of these mechanisms need a little practice to get the latch on the handlebars to line up with the hook on the fender, but folding the Pro feels very natural.
The Xiaomi Pro cockpit looks a lot like the Xiaomi M365 cockpit, but it has a lot more features. The LED dashboard, which is a nice upgrade, is in the middle of the stem and shows your speed, battery level, and riding mode. The screen is bright and will tell you if Bluetooth is connected and if the lights are on.
You can change modes, turn lights on and off, and control the power with just one button. You can also access rider features like regenerative braking strength and display units through the Xiaomi or other third-party mobile apps (metric or imperial). The Pro has three riding modes that set the top speed at 14 km/h (eco), 19 km/h (standard), and 26 km/h (sport).
A small letter below your speedometer on the screen shows which mode you are in. The backlighting of the screen is a nice feature. It gets darker when the light around it gets darker. This is a nice feature for riding at night because the screen won’t blind you. The Xiaomi Pro’s cockpit is simple and clean, with smooth, rounded hand grips that feel like good quality rubber.
On the left handlebar, you’ll find the brake lever and a mechanical bell, whose hammer is the folding hook. The rubber pad on the thumb throttle is the only thing on the right handlebar. The Xiaomi Pro has Bluetooth and can be paired with a smartphone app like the Xiaomi home app or one of many third-party apps.
Since the upgraded display on the Pro shows more information, there’s less reason to use the app. However, it does give you information about the scooter’s health and lets you set the strength of the regenerative braking.
The Pro has an LED headlight at the height of the handlebars and a brake-sensitive tail light at the back. The high-mounted headlight is a useful feature because it shines light farther ahead, making you and others more visible. Keep in mind that neither light is very bright, so you will need more lights that are brighter, especially if you ride at night.
The Pro has two pneumatic inner tube tires that are 21.6 cm wide and 5 cm tall. The soft rubber works best in the rain, and the air in the tires makes the ride more comfortable than with solid tires, which don’t move with the road. Solid tires can’t go flat, but tires with air in them are much more comfortable to ride on.
The rubberized deck is a good size and has bumps all over it to give you more grip. It is 5 cm longer than the M365, but the deck is about the same size as most decks on beginner scooters. The charging port is in the front left corner of the deck and is covered by a magnetized rubber cover. The M365 didn’t have a magnetized port cover, so this is a nice, small improvement.
Can You Ride the Xiaomi M365 Pro in Rain?
The Xiaomi M365 Pro has an IP54 rating. This means that they are water resistant but not waterproof. To be safe, we recommend that you don’t ride the scooter in heavy rain or when it is wet outside. You also want to make sure you keep the charging port away from water, as water can damage the battery and motor.
