October 2, 2022

Founded in 2011, Addmotor is a California-based electric bike company whose main goal is to offer top-notch e-bikes to the general riding public. 

Although the brand doesn’t state the exact meaning behind its name, one can assume that it’s to be taken literally. And since it was founded as an electric bike company, the name connotes an improvement over the standard bicycle.

This aligns with the brand’s promise to continue delivering customer satisfaction by investing in the development of electric bikes, parts, and accessories.

Addmotor made its mark in the industry by focusing on fat-tire e-bike models. All its models fit the fat tire category since they integrate the said tires. The company introduced variety through the combined specs, design, and components. 

Because of this, Addmotor can offer models from several categories, including:

  • Folding

  • Cruiser

  • Trike 

  • All-terrain

  • Hunting 

With that being said, one can expect Addmotor’s models to be versatile in the various types of terrains they can handle as well as in riding comfort. They also provide many different options when it comes to frame designs. 

Another interesting feature of most of their e-bike models is their relatively budget-friendly cost, making them all a great value because of their impressive specs. 

In this article, we’ve covered some amazing Addmotor electric bike models from each category.

Admotor Motan

Addmotor Motan M-150 P7, is a powerful electric bike from the folding e-bike category that comes stock with suspension, a good-sized battery, and fat tires, making it a great off-road machine that can also be folded up when it’s time to go back home.

Motor

MOTAN M150-P7 electric bike features a powerful Bafang hub motor that offers a continuous 750W of power. To help with acceleration, hill climbing, and slogging through snow, sand, and gravel, this motor has 80Nm of torque.

The motor of this e-bike enables it to reach a top speed of 25 mph if you use the throttle or pedal assist, making this a class 3 e-bike.

Battery

This electric bike runs on a 48V system with an 11.5Ah battery that offers a range of 25 miles with pedal assist. The battery is placed behind the seat post, making the M-150 P7 a bit back-heavy because the motor is also located in the back wheel. 

The battery is removable for more convenient charging and storage.

Frame

MOTAN M-150 P7 electric bike is one frame size and weighs nearly 61lbs making it pretty heavy for a folding e-bike. However, the M-150 P7 comes with fat tires and front suspension, which increase the weight quite a bit.

The single tube design keeps the standover height low, making it easy for the rider to place their feet flat on the ground at a complete stop. The gussets help reinforce the frame, increasing structural integrity while decreasing frame flex. The frame folds in half, and the handlebars fold down for easy and convenient storage.

Suspension

The M-150 P7 e-bike features a Mozo spring suspension that offers 100 mm of travel. This suspension does a good job at mitigating moderate shocks, but it’s not well suited for more extreme downhill trails.

Gearing

This folding e-bike comes with a Shimano Tourney derailleur and a 7-speed cassette. The gearing system uses a Shimano SIS Index thumb shifter on the handlebars' right side.

Brakes

MOTAN M-150 P7 has Tektro mechanical disc brakes with 160 mm rotors which offer ample stopping power. The brake levers come with motor inhibitors, which cut power to the motor instantly whenever you press the brake levers.

Verdict

This folding e-bike feels like a good option for those who love the outdoors but don’t have a lot of space to store their bike. The AddMotoR MOTAN M-150 P7 is a great folding e-bike that can easily cruise around the city but also handle some modest off-roading. 

The motor is quite powerful and has more torque than most folding e-bikes, making this a perfect choice for those living in a hilly area or expecting to run into snow, sand, or gravel on their adventures.


Electric tricycles have long been a favorite of parents, older riders, and anybody who enjoys the stability and cargo benefits of three-wheeled electric bikes. So for anyone looking to get an electric trike, Addmotor M-340 is worth considering.

Motor

The M-340 comes with a 750W Bafang hub motor that has 80Nm of torque. Now, since this motor is located in the trike's front wheel, you will most likely get some wheel slip. While this isn’t really a problem, it’s just something to keep in mind while riding. 

With this motor,  the M-340 can reach a speed of up to 20 mph out of the box. However, that top speed can be cranked up to around 28 mph by adjusting the settings through the display.

Battery

Addmotor M-66 R7 Battery

The battery is a 48V, 16Ah system with Panasonic cells. With this battery pack, you can reach a max range of around 45 miles in perfect conditions.

The battery is placed near the bike’s back, making it a bit back-heavy since the motor is also in the rear wheel. The battery pack can be removed for convenient charging and can also be locked, so you don’t have to worry about leaving the bike outside.

Frame

The M-66 weighs around 92lbs, making it pretty hefty, and has a max carry capacity of 300lbs.

The frame is made out of 6061 aluminum alloy, which is today’s standard for all electric bikes.

One interesting feature about this bike’s frame is that it has installed a double-sided aluminum bash guard, which helps protect the front chain ring in the event of a big hit, and it will also help keep the chain locked into place.

Suspension

At the front of the M-66, an Addshox spring suspension with 80 mm of travel. This suspension does a great job of smoothing out imperfections in the pavement road, although you will have a bumpy ride if you decide to take it on some off-road trails. 

Gearing

At the bike’s rear part, there’s a Shimano Altus 7-speed derailleur paired with a Shimano SIS Index thumb shifter.

Brakes

This bike comes with Tektro Aries mechanical disc brakes with 180 mm rotors in both the front and rear wheels. These brakes provide excellent stopping power, and the equipped motor inhibitors ensure the shortest stopping distance.

Verdict

The Addmotor M-60 is a great option for people looking for a bike to cruise along the roads and on some light trails. The electric bike's motor provides enough power to be used as a moped and can even climb moderate hills without any issues. The fat tires help add stability, while the compact frame makes this one a nimble electric bike.


This moped-style cruiser electric bike is super fun to cruise around without pedaling. What’s especially interesting about this one is the fact that it can comfortably carry a passenger on its big seat. It even comes with foot pegs, so your friend won’t drag their toes during the ride. 

Motor

The M-66 features a Bafang 750W hub motor with 80Nm of torque. This motor tops out at about 23 mph. While this top speed is a bit slower than other Bafang 750W motors, it should be more than enough for daily commuting and cruising around the town.

Battery

The battery on this e-trike is going to be a 48V, 16Ah system with Panasonic cells. This battery provides a max estimated range of around 50 miles. If you wish to remove the battery, you’ll have to take out the seat post in order to do so, and you also have to keep the keys in the battery during operation.

Frame

The step-thru frame makes getting on and off incredibly easy.

The trike’s single tube design has gussets near the head tube and bottom bracket that serve the purpose of increasing the frame’s rigidity and strength. That's going to come in handy if you consider the trike’s 350lbs load capacity.

And when it comes to the load capacity, there’s just so much storage on this trike. The rear compartment has a 48l capacity, and the front basket has a 9l capacity. Above the bottom bracket is a wooden footrest where you can put your feet up and just chill if you aren’t in the mood to pedal.

Suspension

The suspension on the M-340 is a fork with 80 mm of travel. This suspension does a great job of smoothing out the ride, especially for absorbing hits like when you space out and not notice that piece of sidewalk that’s 3 inches higher than it should be. 

Gearing

The M-340 comes equipped with a Shimano Tourney derailleur with a 7-speed cassette paired with a Shimano SIS Index thumb shifter.

Verdict

In conclusion, the M-340 is a comfortable electric trike that comes equipped with pretty much everything one would need for a fun day at the beach, a grocery store, or a casual ride. This trikke is extremely stable at slower speeds, and its step-thru frame makes it very approachable.


The Addmotor M-360 electric trike provides comfort and stability making it perfect for cruising around town for errands or heading to the beach with a cooler full of drinks and food in the huge storage basket.

Motor

The M-360 e-trike has a Bafang hub motor in the front wheel that offers a continuous 750W of power that can be cranked up to 1000W power for quicker acceleration. The 80Nm of torque also helps with acceleration and hill climbing.

This electric trike can reach the top speed of 20 mph by using the pedal assist, making this a class 2 electric trike.

Battery

The M-360 features a 48V, 14.6Ah battery that offers up to 40 miles of range with pedal assist. The battery can be found on the downtube beneath the seat, keeping the bike’s center of gravity low. The battery is also removable for convenient charging.

Frame

This electric trike is surprisingly heavy, weighing 12lbs. However, with the curb weight comes incredible strength, and this trike has a load capacity of 350 lbs for the rider, in addition to the extra 100lbs load capacity for the rear rack.

Suspension

The M-360 has solid front forks and no rear suspension, making it very stable for a casual ride around the town, but you will feel every bump on the road.

Gearing

Brakes

Tektro mechanical disc brakes with a 180 mm rotor in the front and 160 mm rotors in both rear wheels provide sufficient stopping power. 

 And since each rear wheel is equipped with its own brake, the braking is balanced, and the M-360 won’t pull to either side when braking.

Verdict

The M-360 makes for a solid choice for those looking to get a stable trike that’s fun and easy to ride. This electric trike is also great for people who need a high load carrying capacity and enough power and range to get them to and from their destination.


If you’re looking for an all-terrain e-bike, the Addmotor M-560 P7 is packed up for an adventure, so be sure to consider it.

Motor

Powering this electric bike is a 750W rear hub motor that offers easier gear changing without needing to add too much stress on the drivetrain, helping in the longevity of the components.

On top of that, this motor boasts 80Nm of torque, which will help you easily overcome hilly areas.

Battery

The 48v 17.5ah battery provides decent power output and great longevity. The battery is secured with a key and is also removable for convenience.

The max range you can expect from this battery is around 30 miles at full throttle. 

Frame

This electric bike has all the necessities for staying awesome. The rear rack is sturdy, so you can carry various types of cargo. The M-560 P7 has a multi-function storage bag that maximizes both sides and the top of this rack. The rear rack is also removable in case it doesn’t fit the day's needs.

When it comes to the frame itself, the riding position and comfort points help you ride for a  longer period without fatigue. The bike’s seat can be lowered to a lower position than the handlebars, providing you with more of an upright ride, and easing up the stress on your upper body.

Suspension

The M-560 P7 features suspension with a 100mm travel front fork for comfort and plays a big role in maintaining control.

Gearing

Addmotor M-560 P7 Brakes

Regarding this e-bike's gearset, we’re looking at a Shimano Altus derailer. Since the front gear includes raised flanges to tunnel the chain into position, it offers a dash of utility. While this is good for the bike itself, it’s also good for your pants, as it protects from grease getting into unwanted places. 

Brakes

A set of Tektro 180mm disc brakes is used to stop this 74lb machine. These brakes offer great stopping force and are also very easy to maintain. For the bigger part, the M-560 P7 is built for any terrain. However, the brakes temper the imagination a bit - we wouldn’t recommend long, steep downhill rides.

Verdict

Since there are so many ways to use the M-560 P7, and it does them all very well, this electric bike is a passport to adventure. If you’re looking for an e-bike that you can commute, cruise, find new trails with, or if you just like the appearance, then be sure to check out the Addmotor M-560 P7.


Wildtan M-5600 is the one fat tire hunting e-bike to rule them all, and not just due to its great specs, but because it features the fattest fat tires we have seen to this day - 4.5 inches by 26 inches, just for the record. 

Motor

The Wildtan M-5600 has a 1000W Bafang mid-drive motor and an impressive torque of 160Nm. Once you ride an e-bike that features a motor like this, you’ll never want to ride anything else - it’s a beast. And since it’s a mid-drive, this motor can leverage the e-bike’s gearing, meaning you can throw it in first and crawl up the steepest hill or muddiest trail, or kick it into high gear and race at speeds over 28 mph. Additionally, the motor’s placement keeps the center of gravity low and nice.

Battery

Addmotor Wildtan M-5600 Battery

The battery on this electric hunting bike is a 48V, 17.5Ah system with Panasonic cells which can get you a max range of up to 60 miles. 

The battery is removable and can be locked. What’s nice about this battery is that it also has a USB-C port meaning you can charge up your accessories on the go.

While this may seem like a small feature, if you’re riding and end up in the middle of nowhere and your phone’s battery is dead, this is a nice backup to have that can potentially save the day.

Frame

The Wildtan M-5600 is rather heavy, with a curb weight of around 70lbs. The bike’s frame is designed out of 6061 aluminum alloy, which offers incredible sturdiness. And in combination with its massive tires, the Wildtan M-5600 is extremely stable.

Suspension

The suspension on this e-bike looks awesome since Addmotor opted for the air forks instead of springs, adding extra smoothness when they compress. These are unbranded suspensions with 120 mm of travel and are inverted, which helps to lower the unsprung mass.

Gearing

Addmotor Wildtan M-5600 Motor

At the back of the bike, we’ve got a Shimano Alivio 9-speed derailleur with shift detection and trigger shifters. This is a reliable and strong derailleur which is exactly what this electric bike needs due to the 1000W of power coursing through the drive train.

Brakes

The Wildtan M-5600 uses Tektro Auriga hydraulic disc brakes with 180 mm rotors on both wheels. Although it’s only a dual piston, this brake system has loads of stopping power, offering guaranteed safety on your journey.

Verdict

Overall the Wildtan M-5600 is a fantastic option for hunters or anyone who wants to get deep into the woods on some more extreme trails. The massive 4.5-inch tires will float over just about anything, and the 1000W mid-drive motor will give you more than enough power to overcome every obstacle you come against.
