Xiaomi Scooter Pro 2 (Mi Electric Scooter Pro 2)

Xiaomi released a new version of their Pro Scooter: Xiaomi Scooter Pro 2. In this article I first want to give you an overview of the different Xiaomi Scooter models and point out the different version of Mi Electric Scooter Pro 2. Then I do a review what differs the Pro versions from the others.

Xiaomi released 3 new models, including the new Xiaomi Scooter Pro 2 (the international name is: Mi Electric Scooter Pro 2).

The new Xiaomi Scooter lineup consists of 3 new models:

  • Xiaomi Scooter Pro 2 – (Xiaomi Pro successor – often referred to as Xiaomi M365 Pro)
  • Xiaomi Scooter 1S – (Xiaomi M365 successor)
  • Xiaomi Scooter Lite – (Xiaomi M187 successor)

Versions of Xiaomi Scooter Pro 2

Attention, different versions of Xiaomi Scooter Pro 2 are being sold: International Version, Chinese Version and German version. While International and Chinese Version are almost identical, the German Version differs from the others. Due to legal requirements e-scooters are only allowed to go up to 20 kph in Germany, so the German Version is limited to a max. speed of 20 kph! You can also easily spot the difference as the German version also has a second brake handle. All new verison of Xiaomi Scooter Pro 2 are euqipped with a fender that can hold a number plate, which is also required in some countries. The German version of Xiaomi Scooter Pro 2 is sold for 499 EUR (629 USD) at German retail stores – here are some photos:

Xiaomi Scooter lineup – Comparison Chart

Before going into detail about the new Xiaomi Scooter Pro 2, here is a spec comparison of the existing Xiaomi Electric Scooter lineup: Xiaomi Scooter Pro 2 vs Xiaomi Scooter Pro vs Xiaomi Scooter 1S vs Xiaomi Scooter M365 vs Xiaomi Scooter Lite vs Xiaomi Scooter M187

One item that differs both Pro versions from the rest, is their size. The Xiaomi Pro Scooters not only have a more powerful motor, they also are a bit taller and have a longer footrest. Here’s a photo of my Xiaomi Scooter Pro and Xiaomi M365 where you can see the size difference:

Xiaomi Scooter Pro is a bit larger than Xiaomi M365

Xiaomi Scooter Pro 2 vs Xiaomi Scooter Pro

Xiaomi Scooter Pro 2 (Mi Electric Scooter Pro 2) Specs

Xiaomi Scooter Pro 2 – Specs

 

So there is a new version of Xiaomi Scooter Pro 2, but what’s the difference compared to the current Pro version? Spoiler alert: not much.
It seems Pro 2 is an improved version of the existing model and some issues were fixed: wiring, cooling,… The only visible difference is the rear fender (which also caused problems with the Pro 1 model) and the international version of Pro 2 is using the fender designed for the German version that offers space to mount a number plate (see picture on the box above).

Xiaomi Pro 1 vs Pro 2 – Differences

Driving Modes / Display
The differences between Xiaomi Scooter Pro 2 and Pro 1 are hard to spot. A minor change are the driving modes. While Pro offers ECO mode with 15 km/h as slowest driving mode; Pro 2 features a Pedestrian mode with 5 km/h. The display shows a different symbol.

Lights & Reflectors
The headlight was upraded from a 1W LED to a 2W LED. The rear light also changed and the international version is now using the same fender as the German version holding a brighter rear light and a place to mount a number plate. Xiaomi Scooter Pro is also equipped with reflectors on all sides which is a requirement in many countries.

Review – Xiaomi Scooter Pro versions (Pro 2 / Pro) vs regular versions (1S / M365)?

In this review I want to point out the differences between the Xiaomi Scooter Pro versions (Pro 1 & Pro 2) and the Standard versions (1S / M365). I’ll cover all different features of the Scooter and start with a spec comparison and then add my comments from drifing them, which are labelled with this icon: 

Size

Xiaomi Scooter Pro versions are a bit taller compared to the regular versions M365 and 1S. The Pro versions are 1.5 kg heavier because of the larger battery that provide a further range. Below the footstep there’s a foldout stand to sturdy park your scooter. The footstep of the Pro versions is 5 cm longer and 1 cm wider than M365 / 1S allowing a more comfortable ride.

   The differences between Xiaomi Pro and Xiaomi M365 seem small, but the impact for me was bigger than I expected. Having a little more space on the footrest makes it way more comfortable to ride. I enjoy a better position while driving Xiaomi Pro (my shoe size if that matters: US 10 / EU 44). Also the extra centimeters on the rod in height are noticeable and comfy. On the other hand you clearly notice the 1.5kg of Xiaomi Pro being heavier when you need to carry your scooter (e.g. when combining it with public transport).
I prefer that the battery is stored under the footrest as it offers a better driving experience with its lower center of gravity. In contrast to Xiaomi the battery of the Ninebot ES versions is stored in the steerign rod.

Motor

Xiaomi Scooter Pro vs Xiaomi M365 - motor

Xiaomi Scooter Pro 300W motor vs Xiaomi M365 250W motor

The front wheel of Xiaomi Scooter Pro 2 / Pro 1 holds a 300W (600W peak) motor which is a plus of 50 W compared to the 250W motor of Xiaomi M365 / 1S (550W peak). Max. speed is 25km/h which is the same as for the the non-Pro versions. The stronger motor also allows a steeper gradient which is stated 20% for the Pro versions.

   The 50W extra power, or in other words 20% more power, make itself felt – clearly! You accelerate faster and reach the max. speed way quicker. The extra power becomes most noticeable when going uphill as you can achieve a higher constant speed compared to M365 / 1S. Overall I clearly have the feeling that Pro is more powerful – even more than I expected beforehand!

 

Battery

The built in battery of Xiaomi Pro & Pro 2 offer a capacity of 474 Wh compared to the 280 Wh capacity of Xiaomi Scooter 1S & M365. As mentioned the battery sits below the footstep of the scooter. Both Pro models should reach a range of 45km (compared to 30km for 1S / M365).
Remark: Xiaomi states the tested range as follows: 75kg driver with fully charged scooter going constantly 15 km/h on a flat surface with no wind at 25°C temperature.

   I wanted to upgrade from M365 since my drive to work is about 12km one way. With M365 I arrived at work with about 39% of the battery left. Towards the end of the ride I noticed a decrease in performance. It was not possible to do a roundtrip (24km) with full speed (25 km/h mode). For me the tested max. range with M365 was 18km with full speed (as long as possible) on an average road with some “normal” hills and stop & go drive due to traffic lights. With Xiaomi Scooter Pro I can do the 24km roundtrip without a significant decrease in performance. There’s only a slight power loss after 20km when going uphill as it takes a bit longer to reach max. speed. I had no problems to reach 30km with the Pro version.
Remark: The range depends on a lot of factors so it can vary a lot. Main factor is the weight of the driver and it is also influenced by the road condition if it is flat and if you are going at a constant speed.

 

Tires & Brakes

Xiaomi Scooter Pro vs Xiaomi M365 - Brakes & Tires

Xiaomi Scooter Pro vs Xiaomi M365 – Brakes & Tires

All Xiaomi Scooter models are fitted with tube air tires instead of solid rubber tires, e.g. found on Ninebot ES2. This offers advantages and disadvantages. I prefer tube air tires as they offer a smoother ride compared to the solid tires of Ninebot ES2 (which even has suspension). Of course they can deflate or puncture. All Xiaomi models are fitted with 8,5″ tires; recommended pressure is 50 psi (3.4 bar).

All Xiaomi Scooter models offer the same two separated brake systems: Integrated in the front wheel there is an eABS, regenerative anti-lock braking system. When you release the accelerator lever, the front wheel slowly brakes and the generated energy flows back into battery. Only the German verison of Xiaomi Scooter Pro 2 has a separate handle for this brake. Brake strength can be defined within the app. The back wheel holds a 120mm disk brake which is activated with the brake handle on the steering bar. In the picture above you can see that the brakes of Xiaomi Pro 1 and M365 are different. Some users reported that the disk brake used on Xiaomi M365 is not as firm and can bend. So the brake was upgraded on the Pro model which is now way firmer. This brake is also used on Pro 2 and well as on Xiaomi Scooter 1S.

    I know many users dislike the air tube tires on the Xiaomi Scooters as you can get a flat tire. I once had a puncture and the tire is hard to change. But still I prefer the air tube tires. I compared the Xiaomi Scooter to Ninebot ES which uses solid tires and even has suspension on front and back wheel. Still the driving experience on Xiaomi is way better as the air tube tires offer a more comfortable and smoother ride. Since the air tube tires smoothen the ride on uneven roads very well I’m also not switching them to solid tires on my Xiaomi- Scooter.

 

Xiaomi Scooter Pro versions in a nutshell

    Do I feel a difference riding a Pro version compared to the regular versions? Yes, a lot. Once you get used to the Pro version you don’t want to switch back. You get used to the faster acceleration and you clearly feel the stronger motor when going on hilly roads. The larger footrest is more comfortable.

Xiaomi Scooter Pro versions compared to regular versions:

Longer Range (increased battery capacity)

Better Acceleration (stronger motor)

Better Uphill Performance (stronger motor)

Comfier Driving Position (larger footrest)

LCD Display (only compared to M365)

Price (higher than 1S / M365)

Weight (heavier than 1S / M365)

    Xiaomi pro 2 scooter. ?? I dont understand how xiaomi can release a product virtually identical to the previous one. It seems they have played it safe. And haven’t been able to advance the scooter to a new level. I think alot of people will be very bored, and disappointed with the new scooter.

    • el Producente 22. June 2020 at 23:25 Reply

      I think they are not targeting Pro users to get the new version. Maybe they adapted the Pro scooter for the German market and fixed some minor issues for the international version.

    A very big disappointment for the international version of the Xiaomi Pro 2! I knew that version reflects the German ver. so its just a minor incremental upgrade over the 2019 M365 Pro version.

    Really wish Xiaomi step it up unless Ninebot comes out with a brand new Ninebot Max successor with suspension and stuff.

    Will let Ben Fox know anyway lol.

      As in the automotive industry I think it’s a facelift of the current production run. Minor updates of known issues, and a new fender that can be used in Germany, so they use it for the international version as well.
      Would have been awesome if they upgraded the tires to the tubeless tires (or as Ninebot calls them flat-free tires), that would have been my biggest wisch and could’t have been created sales potential for people upgrading from Pro 1 to Pro 2 because of it.

        Hi,

        Just bought the Pro2 and indeed a misser for not having the tubeless tyres, although I think it is possible to order these kind of tyres seperately and install them, right?
        Anybody knows where to find these tyres?

        • el Producente 23. September 2020 at 10:32 Reply

          Hi, not sure if there are tubeless air tires. There are many solid rubber tires but I wouldn’t recommend them. You not only have a ride without any suspension, this could also cause damage to the scooters electronics.

    I don’t know if it was typed by the accident, but on Xiaomi’s offical website stays that max.gradient of Electric scooter pro first gen. is 12 %??? Is that true???

    • el Producente 21. July 2020 at 9:18 Reply

      Website says 12° for Pro 1 and 20% for Pro 2
      I guess it is just a different measurement in ° or %
