Reviews of my favourite travel gadgets

Al already mention on my blog, a chart appeared on several social media platforms showing the new Xiaomi Scooter lineup for 2020 with 3 new models: Xiaomi Scooter 1S, Xiaomi Scooter Lite & Xiaomi Scooter Pro 2.

Xiaomi Scooter 1S is already offered for sale in China. It seems to be the direct Xiaomi M365 successor with a few new features like display and better brakes. Here you can find my Xiaomi Scooter 1S vs Xiaomi Scooter M365 comparison. (including video)

Pictures of Xiaomi Scooter Pro 2 already leaked and it seems to be just a facelift of the current Pro model with some adoptions to meet requirements for the German market and to share components. Here you can find my Xiaomi Scooter Pro 2 vs Xiaomi Scooter Pro comparison.

Now I received the first infos of the new Xiaomi Scooter Lite, also labelled Mi Electric Scooter Essential. It seems to be the successor of the less known Xiaomi Scooter M187 (Youth Edition).

I got this product sheet showing the infos of the new scooter:

Xiaomi Scooter Lite – Specs

Battery, Range, Size and Display
Basically the Lite edition is a version of Xiaomi Scooter 1S / M365 with a lower capacity battery. Instead of the 280 Wh battery used in 1S and M365 it is using a 183 Wh battery. The Xiaomi Youth Edition M187 also offered a lower capacity battery with 187 Wh. On the one side Xiaomi Lite is also the lightest scooter in the Xiaomi lineup with 12kg. On the other side the range is limited and a max. of 20km is stated. Besides that the frame size of Xiaomi Scooter Lite is the same as Xiaomi 1S, M365 and M187. Only Pro and Pro 2 are a bit larger. Great news is that the new Lite edition will also feature the display known from the Pro version, showing speed, battery status and driving mode. As all Xiaomi Scooters it will offer Bluetooth to connect with Mi Home App (available for iOS and Android).

Motor, Speed, Brakes and Tires
The brushless motor is the same, compared to 1S and M365, offering 250W constant power and 500W peak. While having the same motor Xiaomi Scooter Lite will only offer a max. speed of 20 km/h while all other models offer a max. speed of 25 km/h. Also the climbing angle will be lower, stated to be 10%. The same KERS (kinetic energy recovery system) is used like on the other scooters, being the electric brake on the front wheel. A mechanic disk brake is used on the back wheel. Xiaomi Scooter 1S was upgraded compared to M365 using the same disk brake as the Pro version which is a bit larger and thicker, since the M365 version tended to bend. I guess the “Pro brake” will be used as well so Xiaomi is using the same component on all new 2020 scooter models. Tires are also the same on all Xiaomi 2020 models: 8,5″ air tube tires. I was hoping the new 2020 lineup will get tubeless air tires.

Conclusion

Xiaomi Scooter Lite could be a nice, cheap entry level model, we just don’t know the price and the amount of savings compared to the longer range Xiaomi Scooter 1S.
