M365 but I’d get the ES3 in a heartbeat over it due to costo warranty

m365 is the WW when it comes to Warranty

Ninebot owns Segway and also makes the Xiaomi M65.. consensus around is the Xiaomi (pro) version is the more reliable, robust scooter with much greater after market support (parts, accessories). go figure....
If people are looking for a higher end scooter the dual motor version (Rev, Janobike) are the next step but not sure they legal here...

Anyone know if these scooters can be carry on luggage or do they gate check them as a complimentary mobility aid item?

still illegal in BC. $600 fine.
hopefully it will change soon. (unlikely when ICBC is running the show)
(illegal to operate a motorized vehicle without insurance, unable to get insurance as it doesn't not meet motorized vehicle standards)

I've owned this for about 3 years now, paid ~$1000 back when and had to buy battery separately. A great ride overall, will get a LOT of banging on Toronto roads due to bumps and lack of suspension but they've got a rubber/plastic guard on the bottom designed to take the impact instead of the bottom shell - hence the really loud part. I hit 24-26 km/h on it's fastest mode.

Unfortunately, on a ride over the summer, after a few bumps (I can only assume this is the case), something came loose in the computron and I'm now getting an error and it won't run anymore. Haven't tried to go through warranty or anything though, been too lazy, although there are Tube videos to show potential fixes, but not the easiest as it requires taking apart the handlebar assembly and aligning magnets on the trigger.

This shouldn't be compared to the M365 Pro, it's in line with the original M365 though. The M365 Pro is in the same category as the new Ninebot ES Max, not the ES3.

At this price and Costco guarantee, highly recommend. Although like the Vancouver comment, I'm fairly confident it's grey area in Toronto as well, as it's a motorized vehicle, although you can get away with pretending to kick it maybe... at least that was my backup plan if I ever got pulled over. Hasn't happened in my 2 years of riding though and rode by many cops/cars.

Highly recommend a helmet as these are fast, front wheel drive, and therefore you will fly forward.

I rode the M365 to and from work (7KM each way) in the scarborough area for 3 days a week this past summer, passed by many police cars and none of them had a problem.

I had the M365 probably before anyone else on this forum.l, and it uses the Segway app and shows up as a nine or scooter. Also looks pretty much exactly the same as the Segway branded.

i do like this for the better portability while folded and the longer range, but they ride similar and the xiaomi can be had for $300 USD if you're close to the border, no contest

Also, no mechanical brakes is kinda scary.

I jaywalked in front of many police cars and never had a problem. Illegal is still illegal. One pull up, you will be paying the same price as your cost to buy scooter..

You can gate check and bring in the airport as a mobility scooter but your battery must be in your check in luggage.
