Dare to be different? The Revi Bikes Cheetah Cafe Racer electric bike isn’t just another clone. Redolent of a 1970s-era cafe racer motorcycle, the Cheetah is just cool to look at.
Under the hood, the Cheetah has great specs for a mid-priced e-bike. With a throttle that takes you up to 20 mph and a pedal assist function that can allow sprints up to 28 mph, the bike can certainly move quickly when asked.
As with a low-rider motorcycle, you’ll be sat with your feet forward of your body and in a relaxed, trekking position. The sprung leather saddle makes up for the lack of suspension on the bike, and comfort is aided by the high volume, 26” x 4” tires that’ll absorb most bumps in the road.
Coming with the option of an 840Wh battery, the Cheetah lets you put in some serious miles — up to 30 per charge. That’s a heck of a lot of cruising!
Reasons to Buy
You’ll only buy this e-bike if you want to be noticed. Perhaps you’ve recently become single and want to attract attention. Or maybe you just want to give off cool vibes.
A leader in its class, the Revi Cheetah has great components that’ll ensure you’ll use it for years to come (at least until you get discouraged from riding it by your new significant other). Do go for the 840 Wh battery version, as you’ll get better range on it.
Things to Consider
We love the laid-back, custom motorcycle design of the Cheetah, but let’s face it: not everyone will want one for that very reason.
Weighing in at 70 lbs, this isn’t a featherweight e-bike. Though it’s not nearly as heavy as a gas-powered motorcycle, it could still present a problem if dropped on its side. The weight of the bike is likely why it’s nowhere near as efficient in terms of battery power/range as other electric bikes.
