Where do people ACTUALLY use these legally?I've never seen one used before …Where do people ACTUALLY use these legally?I've never seen one used before in real life. So have thankfully not seen any eejits on them on the pavements or roads.


Come to London and you'll see them everywhere.

I get that they're technically not road legal, but I really don't see why. Sure they're motorised but rarely go faster than max. 15mph so I don't think they're any more dangerous than a bike. In fact I'd rather be hit by a 9kg scooter with a skinny hipster on it than a 15kg bike with Boris Johnson on it. Plus riding a bike also requires zero road training, licensing, insurance, tax etc.
It's about time the government made a decision on how we can ride our scooters legally. Thousands of us waiting, frustrated, not able to enjoy those fantastically environmentally friendly, new age, mode of transport.
All you need to do is pretend to push every now and again 😏

Aldi have at least attached a disclaimer regarding legal restrictions. Some retailers do not. And of course if one were to volunteer the information in this forum, a hundred irate apologists would rail against one.

I live in Tottenham and work in Brixton. So I think if a copper did pass me on one of these, they're probably on the way to a more significant incident and wouldn't bat an eyelid!

How does this compare to the Xiaomi M365? I could not find many reviews of this one.

Bikes also shouldn't be on pavements... Only cycle paths... So you shouldn't get hit by EITHER a bike or a motorised scooter on a pavement.

Who said anything about pavements? Bikes, scooters or any vehicle on pavements really grinds my gears. Not going to challenge anyone in my area about it though unless I want a good thumping or worse. I do think electric scooters should be allowed on roads and cycle lanes though, or at least treated in the same way as bikes.

True, you see quite a few of them, but rarely do you see the same rider twice. They're like mayflies, a brief moment in the sun.
Electric E scooter? Do they do petrol E scooters as well
can some people talk about how the scooter is before this threads descends into the usual bickering about whether they are legal or not?

On your bike
1 year warranty, max 100kgs load and classified by Aldi as a toy... Does not put my mind at ease as to reliability or longevity and I say this as a fan of Aldi and Lidl... Good thing about this, it will start pushing prices down for the rest of them...

Sounds like a crazy idea but I like it!
Bought one for my son last Christmas. He and his brother both love it and they've gotten a lot of use out of it.
Good spot! I was wondering why it only had a 1 Year warranty when you usually see 2 or 3 years for products like these

A neighbour who is a copper told me they’re under instructions to ignore people on these, unless causing a nuisance. Way too busy to care about people using a more eco friendly form of transport

I work up central and see at least 5 of these on the commute each day. I'd say must be thousands active in central.
Crime of the century riding one of these on the road , use mine all the time in London and at local home area, no different to using my bike. Like others have said I think the police have slightly more serious issues to attend than someone using a greener way of commuting, the only dangerous thing about them is the lack of exercise when using it.
Anybody know how these compare with the Xiaomi M365 e-scooter? Cheers

the only dangerous thing about them is the lack of exercise when using it.


"A Scotland Yard spokesman said: "Police were called at 08:36hrs on Friday, 12 July to reports of an electric scooter being in collision with a lorry at Queenstown Road, junction with Battersea Park Road SW8.

"Officers and London Ambulance Service attended. A woman in her 30s had suffered serious injuries and was sadly pronounced dead at the scene."

Not judging either way, in fact getting people on greener modes of transport has to be a good thing. Pretty sure the difference in legislation for e-bikes and e-scooters is around the fact e-bikes only assist you pedalling (I.e. stop pedalling and the assistance stops) whereas e-scooters do not assist, they provide all of the drive.

The wheel sizes appear to be different. Are these definitely the same?

That junction is notorious following a redesign back in 2015 with the cycling community citing how confusing it is to users. A cyclist suffered a similar fatality a year earlier. There are risks with all modes of transport. As a minimum helmets should be worn...although again that is no guarantee of surviving an accident.

Sure, but the comment I replied to said, "the only dangerous thing about them is the lack of exercise when using it". That is clearly not the case, They are at least as dangerous as other modes of transport.

Here is a report from the Associated Press:

"Berlin police say in the three months since popular electric scooters have been allowed in the German capital, they’ve seen 74 accidents, 65 cases of drunken driving and 233 traffic violations."

"In the accidents, there have been 16 serious injuries and 43 lighter injuries. Sixty-five have been caused by the scooter drivers themselves, and 27 of them were solo accidents. In 19 cases, scooter drivers have been investigated for leaving the scene." - LINK
