The Results of Our Tests After Speed Modification on Ninebot Max G30 and Xiaomi Electric Scooters

To gauge the impact of these modifications, we conducted tests on the ninebot Max and Xiaomi e-scooters before and after the speed alteration. The Xiaomi scooter exhibited impressive performance with its unlocked speed capabilities. It maintained full speed for approximately one bar or around 10% of the battery before gradually decreasing to about 26-27 kilometres per hour. Conversely, the Ninebot Max G30 handled the increased power more efficiently, sustaining its speed consistently almost until the battery died completely.

Implication of Speed Modifications on Electric Scooters

Firstly, riding at higher speeds exposes you to a higher risk of accidents. Safety should always be a priority, even when riding at normal speeds. Speed limits vary by country, with some jurisdictions setting limits as low as 20 kilometres per hour. In countries like America, the limit is typically 30 kilometres per hour. Exceeding these limits can result in speeding tickets, with fines often surpassing the scooter's price.

Secondly, manufacturers carefully engineer scooters, considering factors such as motor power, weight, and braking capabilities to ensure optimal performance. Altering the speed limit may impact battery life, distance range, and the overall riding experience.

While we enjoy pushing everything to its limits, it is crucial to consider these factors before deciding to unlock the speed on your scooter. On the positive side, a faster scooter provides an exhilarating experience, facilitates easier uphill rides, and does not significantly affect battery life. Ultimately, the decision rests with you. However, bear in mind that modifying your scooter may void the manufacturer's warranty.


It is important to note that we assume no responsibility for these modifications, and any consequences are solely your own. The experiences we share are meant for informational purposes only and should not be replicated without understanding the risks involved.
