Overview of the Cheetah Café Racer Fat Tire Electric Bike
Inspired by the 1960's Café Racer motorcycles, the CHEETAH CAFÉ RACER fat tire electric bike has both style and charisma. With its integrated battery that mimics the motorcycle's gas tank, extra wide fat tires and over sized headlight, the CHEETAH CAFÉ RACER electric cruising bike looks like a retro motorcycle; and with its powerful nominal 750 watt BAFANG™ gear hub motor (peak output 1000W+), it’s got the power to match its looks!
The BAFANG™ motor has 90 Newton meters of torque, which means the CHEETAH ebike can quickly reach top speed and climb most hills with ease. The extreme power of the motor means that this electric cruiser is ideally suited for heavier riders. The motor runs off a 48 volt, 13 amp hour lithium-ion battery in a waterproof casing (17.5 Ah upgrade available), which enables the CHEETAH to travel up to 45 miles on a single charge when used in conjunction with PAS (or up to 35 miles using just the half twist throttle).
New in 2020, REVI BIKES (formerly Civi Bikes) has updated the front headlight, making it bigger and brighter (4 LED bulbs provide 400 lumens of light), with both high and low beams. They have added a new wider, thicker and softer saddle design seat, a USB port on the LCD controller display panel for charging your cell phone on the go, and they have made the LCD screen bigger for ease of viewing on the road.
The LCD displays in full color and enables you to select from 3 different riding modes (Power, Eco or Normal). The LCD display also monitors distance traveled, battery charge remaining, current speed, and motor output wattage. High performance TEKTRO™ hydraulic disc brakes are fitted at both the front and the rear of the bike for added braking performance, and an aluminum alloy body gives stability, minimizes the weight and protects against potential rust.
With the CHEETAH'S swept back handlebars, stitched grips, comfort saddle seat and retro styling, this e-bike is sure to please.
Cheetah Electric Bike Reviews
Our friends at Electric Bike Review really loved the CHEETAH! Watch their full review below. Here's what they had to say:
- I love how they match the black motor casing and elongated fork.
- The adjustable headlight with low and high beam will keep you visible and completes the chopper look.
- I was satisfied with the larger 180mm hydraulic disc brakes and enjoyed the longer handlebars, padded grips, and oversized sprung saddle when we encountered some broken sections of road. This is clearly a special electric bike.
- With a maximum allowable weight of 330 lbs this is a great electric bike for big people.
- It’s above average for such a custom design, in my opinion.
- This thing zips, and you can hear the distinct electronic whirring noise a bit in the video review above. From standstill, I had no problem taking off and reaching the higher speeds quickly.
- I really love riding this bike!
Brent McCluskey from Electrified Reviews also had great things to say:
- an incredibly comfortable and stylish cruiser style electric bike with plenty of power and range for those extended rides through the city.
- The CHEETAH is a pretty unique cruiser electric bike that looks incredible and performs just as well.
- This thing is a beast!
- This thing rides like a dream
