So with lidl, these deals are only for in store, right? Their website isn't the easiest to navigate.
Got this few weeks back at £279.
Might get another at 179 its a total bargain.

Is it genuine? How is the battery life? I saw a comments from DHgate, the battery life is suck and had a puncture.
Does anyone know how these compare to the Xiaomi 365’s?

That doesnt look too bad. Got to admit, storage is a chore with these eScoots....i've got one that lives in the car boot so just out of the way
There's a reddit thread about these, looks like they were selling them back in September too
Overall positive but they seem to fail when it rains - which is a major problem for the UK

That added note does not seem to be the sort of serious statement advised by the Government website: "responsible vendors will give customers accurate information about the legal restrictions on their use." LINK

Not tested it properly yet. Its genuine M365 Pro. I weight close to 100KG, ride from home to office will be undulating and the roads are horrendous around Manchester, so not expecting the battery to hold that well regardless.

Still, should be OK for the 4 mile commute each way.

Not worried about the Bobby patrol. Spoke to one on weekend as I was near Christmas Market... Essentially said that so long as I don't ride it like a complete c ck and endangering people, they usually won't go out of their way to deviate from their day's orders. Obviously he said that he can't guarantee all his colleagues will take the same view.

The vendor being Lidl would be the ones to address that. I know most escooter posts spiral into legality, but they really shouldn’t as deals are just price and product related.
Price is nearly getting there, I'd hang fire on these (Unless you really need one) for the £99 Amazon ones

We had a short break to Seville recently and you can hire these (or something similar) from lots of places in the street using an app, like Boris bikes in London. They stuck to the cycle lanes and seemed a pretty good idea. Helps that the weather is a bit better over there!

Here is one, didn’t take long, this person is serious he has never and will never break the law, boring!
The spec of this one is similar to m365 pro. Definitely a great deal.

I've driven this through all the season, main thing to avoid is driving through deep puddles. Most importantly is to protect the power button, it's not waterproof, lots of options for sealing this: cover, liquid silicon ect.
lidl remove all of their items from the website after their weekly sales, it's annoying because you can't lookup specs!
pretty much a M365 at a bargain price.
Great deal OP. Where did you spot the deal? I can't seem to find it anywhere.

I don't believe Lidl actually posted the notice that appears in your deal description: "PLEASE NOTE: This can only be used legally in your house or on private property. Living room to Fridge is recommended journey, although front door to car is fun too." Not actually sure, as I cannot find the item on their website via the link, but it seems to me that you made it up, and if Lidl posted a notice, it would have been less frivolous.

As to "price and product", prospective buyers need to know that this product is of limited use if used legally, and could be a positive liability if used in public places. How much money would you think was a bargain to purchase a motoring offence, complete with a fine and points on your licence?

If you are referring to me, you are incorrect about my never breaking the law. I do try not to do it accidentally or through ignorance, and only in full cognizance of the risks.
Plenty of speculation whether this is a 365, or a 365 pro or neither. Lidls specs don't appear to match either.
One thing is for sure, it's pretty much identical looks wise from the outside.
For instance-
Lidl 350w motor
M365 pro 300w motor
M365 250w motor

Lidl 7.2Ah (need voltage to work out the other value)
M365 pro 474Wh
M365 280 Wh

Confused? Me too.

The legality of e-scooters is fairly well known to most folks who are looking to buy one and necessity to keep covering the same ground on it is just boring more than anything. Common sense if they didnt know would just be to look it up themselves, but I would presume a retailer like Lidl will issue some sort of disclaimer on sale too

Technical specifications
  • Range: approx. 22 km
  • Speed: maximum 20 km / h
  • Motor: Rated power: 350 watts (front wheel drive)
  • Battery: Li-ion battery with Sanyo cells, 36V 7.2 Ah, 259 Wh
  • Charging time: up to 7 hours
  • Charger: 42V 1.5Ah

Might need to translate page to English..but nabbed that from: lidl.de/de/…995

Mishmash jobby, but even with bigger motor, battery looks like the main sticking point and puts it just bellow the M365, but with some pros and cons. Liitle summary from a chap on a scoot group i'm in:

Hybrid of the m365/pro/Ninebot max
# It’s designed for the Austrian market. The documentation and guarantee provided by KSR Group.
# It has the basic display from the m365, and operates in the same way, going into eco mode when the battery reaches a certain level. In order to comply with Austrian legislation it has both the pull brake and a separate e brake lever.
# From the m365 pro it seems to have the 350w motor, better latch and the metal guard in the rear fender to stop wheel bounce ruining the rear light connection.
# From the max it has tubeless tyres
# Lacks BluTooth


Its still very decent vs the current pricetag

I'm not sure how one would make the determination that "most folks" know something or don't, but there have certainly been people posting in here that say they have not known the legal position, and others who seem to be confused, or, worse, have posted misinformation. It does no harm to clarify the matter, even at the expense of ever so slightly boring those who already know. I believe that much of the "boring" you complain of comes about from the subsequent argy-bargy when the scofflaws and apologists wade in with their take on how the law is an ass, how it is not being evenly enforced, and how it is likely to change one day, none of which negate the actual legal position as of now and the consequent risks of riding one of these scooters in a public place.
