Originally founded in 2017 by Tony and Rex, Revi Bikes designs, manufactures, and assembles cafe racer-style electric bikes in its own factory. Based in Southern California, Revi specializes in electric bikes that have a fake gas tank on the crossbar and elegant curves. The company relies on Tony’s 15 years of experience in the eclectic bike industry for its designs. And to help make its bikes easier to repair, Revi designs its products using 80% of the parts available in the open market.
Not as big as many U.S.-based rivals, Revi nonetheless is a growing company with revenues of $3 million in 2020. It partners with dealers across the country, meaning you should be able to find its bikes near you.
Our Two Cents on Revi Bikes
Though Revi has diversified beyond its core cafe racer-style designs, you can still spot a Cheetah e-bike at first glance. Its signature Cheetah Class 3 electric bike is still the company’s best-selling model. With 26” x 4” fat tires, it has a great presence on the road. You will get second looks from other riders and road users thanks to its stylish looks and proudly different appearance.
Its foray into other types of electric bikes has resulted in some okay machines, though these won’t compete on looks and performance ones made by major OEMs. It offers solid cruiser and commuter e-bikes that’ll get you where you need to go. However, its one-year warranty on all components (as well as a two-year warranty on the battery) is a nice touch.
