Refreshed 12th Jun (Posted 9th Jun)Edited by:"Mrswitch"
With topcashback theoretical saving of £11, making total outlay £348

Sorry to the op who posted the Halford deal earlier, but I knew this was cheaper, and so thought people would rather save the £30 and receive the same service, this is also delivered free of charge by DPD, probably the best delivery company in the UK in my opinion

I police the streets of London and wouldn't stop anyone on one of these purely because I'd rather be doing something productive like trying to stop actual criminals.

This is the practical truth:

1) these are illegal outside of private land/garden

2) No copper will take the time to stop you so that's not a problem

3) If you caused an accident (say you bumped into someone and they fell over and cracked their head) your liability is basically unlimited and if you were liable, you could lose everything and a little known fact is that personal injury debts are not automatically wiped with bankruptcy - so if they need life-time care, you'll pay forever.


Happy riding.

Fair point, but it is the same risk for a riding a bike


No home insurance would cover you and also riding a bike isn't illegal - so without getting into the complexity - the calculation of liability is different.

Here if you get into an accident, the starting position for the people suing you (say an insurance company) was that you were acting illegal - something that Is undeniable from the start.

So unlike riding a bike, you'd get sued, you'd likely get bankrupted but that wouldn't save you because personal injury judgements are not discharged unless a judge orders it (s.281(5) of the Insolvency Act 1986) - so you could pay forever.

That is before you get into criminal charges...

Obviously most people aren't going to injury other people - they just need to way up the risk - as long as you don't have a decent job,home and career and don't plan to have one you should go for it.

Do you bubble wrap yourself before leaving the house? Sounds like you do!


I used to do research work on personal injury - eye-watering how much money people would end up paying out because of stuff like this.

All I'm saying is know what you are potentially getting in... and make sure your house is in someone else's name.

Any experience with these guys on warranty issues ?

Whenever I spot someone walking about with one of these, I ask them about punctures or the handlebar bolt loosening.
Only one person knew anything about the 3d printed gasket, otherwise everybody else kinda shrugged and said they hadn't witnessed any issues.

PureScooters are providing these with 2-year full UK manufacturer’s warranty also.

That unfortunately is not the practical truth.

Police do stop people with them. And whilst it is an educational program and they will advise of the 'dangers' and make you walk if they catch you again - goodbye scooter, and enjoy the fine.

What annoys me is the uk government is quick to follow other EU countries new rules and laws if they can tax the uk public but when it helps the people of the uk have cheaper transport they are not interested as nothing in it for them.

They aren't allowed clearly. Maybe not traded in the UK long enough, not enough feedback on them, maybe not vat registered, that's generally the reasons why.

Does anybody know of any towns or initiatives that provide a scooter lock-up facility?
The main area where you'd need these is in shopping centres/supermarkets whilst you go about your supermarket sweep trolley dash.

I seem to recall reading something about user trials taking place in London's Olympic Park by some govt. recommendation body.
I've seen comments on here mentioning Police stop 'n' chats and then confiscations.

Anybody hear anything more recent?

Makes sense, shame, good deal that one, I'm not allowed to add it to the description, but hopefully the added I fo has helped.
lol at the comments about insurance and liability etc.
i got hit twice in London by cyclists. Once walking on a pavement, and once driving my car.

Guess what both cyclists did? yeah they cycled off.
Just got back from weekend in London,everyone riding about on them,some bloke went past in the park and had big metal box on it still flying a long,would love one

You've just given me a cracking business idea.

GoPro pedestrian camera helmet. It will need some fettling in the design arena to loose the Boris look, but it will function by capturing and storing footage and also the bluetooth ID or IMEI number of all devices within a 1 metre range of your PedPro just before and just after an impact.

During investigation, they can eliminate who's who, and hunt 'em down.
1.5 of ride time in sport mode and about 3 hours in eco mode 😜

The Olympic Park is less of a trial and more of a demonstration. It's funded by Bird (I think), who are one of the rental operators all over the world. It's also ridicules. It's a circular path cut in half by a road (so doesn't actually go anywhere). You have to get off the scooter and push it over the road. They have staff stationed to make sure this is done as they can't be seen promoting people to break the law. I think it started last August and was due to last year.

Most police seem to generally be in favour or think it's not worth their time stopping riders but every so often the higher ups will decide to have a crackdown. The MET started in April. People have had their scooters confiscated and warnings but no fines or points issued yet as far as I know.

I really hope this worthless government pulls it's finger out this summer and makes them legal. I think I agree with the Paris model. Ride on roads and cycle paths but illegal on pavements with €130 fine.

There are definitely problems with regards to safety, which is a bit of a bummer, given how handy and efficient they are.

I keep thinking about getting one of these. My commute to work is only 1.3 miles so I walk every day. I don't need one of these at all, but I want one soooo bad.
Be careful about buying this. I bought one off PureScooters a few months ago, they’re now being recalled by Xiaomi because a bolt in the main handle bar that allows it to fold is at risk of snapping and the entire handle bar coming away. Anybody with an affected model has been told they CANNOT ride it. Recall programme starts 26th June. Here is the website to see whether yours is affected: mi.com/glo…SJ9

That really has nothing to do with scooters.
Could have just as easily been a bicycle. Would that have faired any better against a van?

This is how the media sensationalise newly released items when anything negative crops up and people lap it up/regurgitate it for others to devour.

No, they're pretty much in the same price range of around £400. You can get ones in the thousands, but that's the same with electric scooters that range up to £2,000. These aren't legal outside private grounds, so you'll be getting points and a fine if an officer feels like messing up your day.
