The all-new, singing and dancing Xiaomi Mi Pro 2 Electric Scooter is finally here, but is it that much better than the M365 Essential or the original M365 Pro. Here’s our Xiaomi M365 Pro 2 review.
That’s right. It’s here. They’ve only gone and updated the original Xiaomi M365 Pro. This time they’ve added a few little details as a direct result from feedback from customers.
It’s easy to say the M365 Pro 2 looks good, but it’s the added extras where the M365 really excels.
We’ve had our eye on the new M365 updates from Xiaomi (like the M365 Essential) and this 2020 M365 Pro 2 update looks impressive.
Overall the new edition of the scooter has the same classic design as the original Xiaomi Mijia M365 but one look at every Xiaomi M365 Pro 2 review and it will tell you that they’ve released another industry-leading machine.
Here’s a closer look the M365 Pro 2 vs the M365 Pro:

SO WHAT’S NEW FOR 2020?
At one glance it looks like nothing has changed, but you’ll soon realise Xiaomi have given the world’s most popular award winning electric scooter a decent upgrade.
The new Xiaomi M365 Pro 2 has new safety features including front, rear and side reflectors to help you been seen whilst riding and “thicker” skid resistant, shock-absorbing pneumatic tyres, and therefore a little less prone to punctures. Elsewhere, the Xiaomi Pro 2 also features an upgraded multi-functional LED display with speed, battery, distance and driving mode.
The Pro 2 has a minimalist design, made out of aircraft-grade aluminium alloy and weighs just 14.2kg and features an upgraded battery with high quality 36v 12.8ah battery with smart battery management system and more powerful motor. The Xiaomi Pro 2 can travel up to 28 miles in a single charge and can reach up to 15.5mph.
The Pro 2 also features a kinetic energy recovery system will help you go the extra mile.
In addition to the new front rear and side reflectors, the Xiaomi Pro 2 also features a licence plate holder and a much-needed bracket for the rear mudguard. The front light has also been upgraded from 1W to 2W.
