This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Credit to @karl.moseley for posting the 20% discount deal.

To get this price use code TRADEIN20 at checkout and take an old bike, scooter or helmet to trade it in.

These Xiaomi scooters can be had for around £290 from international websites/sellers but for those who wouldn't mind paying extra for the added security, this seems like a good deal to me.

There are also a couple of interest free plans via Halfords or PayPal if you want to split the payment.

Potential 3.03% TopCashBack as well.

Hope it helps someone.

I have been riding this scooter in London for 1.5 years now, 5 days a week (rain or sunshine) for my 4 mile commute to work. I ride on both road and cycle lanes, and have around 2000 miles on the clock.

- Me personally, punctures were a nightmare, save yourself the hassle and upgrade to solid tyres as soon as possible (guides on youtube on how to fit them).
- The range is about 12-14 miles at full speed / power (about 15mph), though note on the last 25% of the scooters battery, it will slow down (to about 12mph) to try and conserve power.
- My workplace allows me to charge mine under my desk, of course this is workplace dependant.
- Potholes, yes it doesn't handle potholes well, but for me, if you're using this for a commute to work over and over again, you know where to look out for them.
- You get the odd heckle from cyclist and drivers, but most people overrall are fine with you on the road, and many will take an interest and conversate friendly at traffic lights etc.

Overall the experience is very positive and the scooter was a fantastic purchase for me (from gearbest), and has saved me a fortune in travel costs alongside halving my commute time, and beating the morning stressful commute to work. Hope this helps!

Becoz the police doesn’t actually care if u ride one on the road. Just be sensibly, don’t hit anyone, try not to ride on pavements, don’t do anything dumb and follow traffic rule. Honestly it make commuting around London so much more enjoyable.

You can turn that facepalm into a slap:

I have a prosthetic leg but still need to do specific muscle group training and upper body exercise. The gym is 25 min walk away and sometimes I can't take a step without pain, especially after a workout.

This tech could really increase my access to staying fit.

I suppose the same reason why people buy 500bhp cars that do 200 Mph - doing so is illegal but you can choose to do it if you want.
20% off to trade in something worth £1 is a massive deal if you want one of these......HEAT!

Specious comparison: you can use s 500bhp car that can do 200mph legally, just by observing the speed limits.

An electric scooter is illegal on the highway full stop.

Just because somethings illegal, won`t stop people buying it. I think you are answering your own question - people will buy it and not care or they won`t because its illegal.

Nobody will buy one and not use it will they? EXCEPT ME! My £1000 recumbent is still sitting idle

So better on roads not pavements?
Home Delivery didnt work for me. Must be because the tradein code.

Done collect instead

You can go quicker than most bicycle on the road, so road is safer for both yourself and pedestrian. But if the pavement is empty, why not.
Excellent price! Picked one up last time when they had 10% off. So much fun!
I would also recommend buying these with vouchers which you can purchase for a discounted rate, especially useful if you have blue light card discount
These Mii scooters are just so much fun . I got two for £237 each (possible misprice) from GearBest that took an eternity to arrive but well worth the wait 37190956-U2bdp.jpg

You'd have to be a moron to ride one of these on the roads, the tiniest pothole and your brown bread, the wheels are far too small. Stick to the pavements/cycle tracks and be respectful towards pedestrians. As for the police, do they even know the highway code?

I believe you can buy vouchers via the app for an extra bit of discount (roughly 7-10% off). My friend bought mine for me at the time

When you say modify, do you mean the top speed and that?
Anyone who actually got one, no sheriffs please. How’s it to ride in London? What about potholes, punctures etc? What’s the real range and charging time? Can you charge it at work? Is it good for commuting? Thx
^^^ and what about rain ^^^? ...very tempted at this price.
Must resist
Hmmm, very tempted but the new Pro version looks great, lighter and extra range 45km v 30km. But prob will be about £100+ more when launched in UK.

Can you use the cards like Toyota card discount ?
I'd be laughing because 15% aswell
Tempted to get one for commuting purposes but I don’t think I could take this into my work. Is there a good way to lock/secure these to railings or similar?
