Segway ninebot ES3 at Costco for $529

+3 Deal Score
2,737 Views
Was just to Costco and found the Segway Ninebot ES3 scooter w/ dual batteries $50 off of what it was last week. Normal price $579-$50=$529.


Best deal I've seen in a while with the peace of mind of Costco returns. Stopped by the help desk and confirmed you can return it for any reason within a few years just in case it doesn't last. I'm 265 and can confirm it hauls a** even for a chub like me 😂 They had a few pallets in Oceanside, CA.

How's is this compared with xiaomi m365 bird scooter? Build quality and other things. I bought it today $529+taxes but having second thoughts as xiaomi 365 sometimes is available for $350+taxes.

In the past I've just resorted to calling my local Costcos. The operators are super helpful and will let you know pretty quickly what they have.

BTW you can hack the Firmware on these to alter all perameters like you're programming the enginge computer on a real automobile.

you can increase torque, change the way the throttle response, increase top speeds, change the way the electric braking responds, and just about everythng. I set mine up to just coast when you let off throttle and increased top speed to ~22mph. (wont brake when going down hills, also increased power output enough to where it doesn't drop to a crawl trying to go uphill)



The answers are easy to find out there with the information I already gave up, so please don't ask me for the "tutorial." I don't have time!!!! Good luck!

I prefer m365 for air in tires (es2 chipped my teeth from solid tires) and the es2/es3 turn at too high of an angle for me to feel very safe about them, you hit a pothole the wheel fits into and you're eating shit and the weight is all in the handlebars on the ninebots so you will be "flyswatted" into the ground with your head likely taking most of the impact.

Also, please just get used to these things a lot before you get too comfortable on them because they really are absolutely dangerous to crash on..


the first thing you should know before buying an electric scooter is "how to crash" .... Anyone who rides dirt-bikes or anything similar knows what I mean. You need to learn to throw your body away from a crash when it's actually happening and try to minimize the blunt impact.... These scooters are balanced weird and trying to stay with it will just land you in the hospital or worse.


If you ride these every single day, you will eventually crash. jumping off the deck and away from the scooter is best practice imo. Try to keep your momentum moving, fall, roll, whatever it takes to avoid a blunt impact.

Wear a helmet.

Second the M365 as really easy to mod, firmware "hack" (more like "change params and upload to scooter in 1 click") is incredibly easy (and pretty fool / brick proof), plus tons of parts available on eBay, tutorials everywhere.

Not the most powerful thing out there though (even tweaked)... I hear the ES2/3 have a little more "oomph"
