Engwe M20 eBike reviewmoto, more range

REVIEW – The last 4 years have been pretty epic as far as personal electric vehicles go. The sheer quantity of electric bikes and scooters available is staggering which can make it tricky to find that one model that will be the perfect fit for you. Smaller moped-style bikes have become increasingly popular due to their ease of use and the one-size-fits-most design. Engwe has a brand new one called the M20 and I was able to get an early look.

What is it?

The Engwe M20 eBike is a moto-inspired, Class 3 ebike eBike with pedal assist, throttle, 4″ fat tires, dual-suspension, and can be equipped with either 1 or 2 batteries depending on your range needs.

Hardware specs

Design and features

The Engwe M20 eBike has a great look to it that just asks to be ridden.

It’s available in 3 different colors; White, Green or Black.

And additionally, can be ordered with two batteries if you want to double your range.

Up front, there are dual headlights that can be aimed individually. They have low running lights and a control switch by the left hand to toggle on the high beam.

On the right hand are the full-size throttle, 7-speed shifter, and your rear brake which has a sensor that cuts power to the motor when used, even if the throttle is still open.

The Engwe M20 eBike’s front wheel is mounted to a triple clamp suspension fork, providing a smooth ride and also preventing the steering from turning too far where the headlights might hit the frame.

At the top of the triple clamp fork, you have a red compression adjustment knob to tune the fork’s feel.

Here’s the whole cockpit. The small square in the center of the bar is my addition. That’s a Peak Design handlebar mount for their Mobile phone cases. Great, secure mount for your phone if you need GPS to get where you’re going.

The lights and horn are handled by 2-button remote mounted just to the right of the grip. As for the eBike settings, they’re all handled by the display which has three buttons. The power button is just above the battery icon on the top edge of the display. Just under the display on the left side are and – buttons. Pressing those increase or decrease the assist level from 0-5 (0 being no assist and 5 being max assist). Additionally, if you press and hold the – button the bike will slowly roll itself forward to help carry its own weight as you walk up hills. Just keep it pressed as long as you need the assist.

At the rear, you’ll find a very visible tail light that illuminates any time the bike is on and pulses brightly when the brakes are engaged. You can also see the rear swingarm in this shot heading up to the shock mounted under the seat.

Here’s that up close. The black perforated box under the seat hides the motor controller along with the horn’s speaker.

The Engwe M20 eBike’s rear derailleur comes with one of those protective cages around it. I’d recommend leaving it in place just due to the increased weight of this bike. A tip over to the right side could damage the derailleur pretty good. The mag-style wheels look good and are plenty strong.

As for the battery, it installs by sliding onto a modular rail and then locks in place with a key on the left side.

On the right side is a power switch along with the input barrel jack for charging the battery, and an output USB which you can use to charge up your phone or other USB-powered device. Both of those ports have rubber port covers to help keep moisture out.

Setting up the Engwe M20 eBike

Assembling a bike isn’t all that hard. Just take your time, follow the instructions, and hit up the manufacturer’s website (and maybe Google) if something doesn’t make sense. As was evidenced by the beat up shipping box up above, and this repeated photo here, transit can take its toll, so there’s a lot of protective packaging and cable ties that need to be removed.

The M20 assembly was pretty standard including…

  • Installing the handlebars into the stem and tightening the 4 bolts
  • Installing the front fender
  • Adjusting position of the brake levers and shifter for hand size and reach
  • Adjusting the display for visibility and the light/horn remote for reach
  • Installing the front headlights and electrical connection (a little fussy, but easy enough)
  • Inflating tires to proper levels
  • Checking brakes and adjusting shifting
  • Plugging in the battery to get an initial full charge

Installing the front wheel was interesting just because of how wide the fork is for the fat tires it’s running. As a result, the front axle had some spacers that need to be installed correctly. In the below photo, you can see the long spacer goes on the non-brake side in order to properly center the wheel and have the disc brake rotor properly align with the caliper. Photo is taken facing the front of the bike. The small bent tabs fit into retention holes as you’re installing the wheel.

Checking the tire pressure was a slight surprise. The rear tire needed about 20 psi to get up to spec, but the front was over-inflated by about 15 psi which was a little alarming.

The last item was switching the display from Metric to Imperial. To enter the settings mode, hold down both the and – buttons then press and hold the power button as well until the display enters a mode where you see P1. Use the /- buttons to navigate to P4 and press the power button to adjustment mode. Again use the /- keys to adjust. 00 is Metric, 01 is Imperial. Press the power button again to back out, or press and hold the power button to save all setting adjustments and power off the display.

Another setting you may want to enable is P7 which lets you set a power-on password that has to be entered for the bike to work. Super useful if you want to prevent someone from taking your bike for a spin. The two included keys are just for locking the battery to the bike, not preventing the use or physical locks that prevent moving the bike.

Performance

The M20 is straight-up, super fun to ride. Select the assist level from 1-5 after powering up and off you go. The low seat makes it easy to put your feet flat on the ground. The handlebar angle can be adjusted to help with reach and a comfortable riding position. The big 4″ tires have plenty of traction and together with the dual suspension, smooth out any rough roads nicely. The pedal assist has a momentary pause before engaging and a slight punch when it engages after which it feels nice and smooth. Similarly, you can just twist, sit back and smile as you cruise along.

The seat height and fore/aft position are fixed which is part of why the bike looks so cool. I’d confidently say that if you’re between 5 and 6 feet tall, this will fit you pretty well. Over 6 feet, pedaling can be awkward as your knees rise above your seated position. I definitely fall into that category, but that’s where the throttle comes into play.

The suspension is going to work better for you if you weigh a little more. I’m around 215 lbs and could feel it working, but wouldn’t call it plush. There doesn’t appear to be all that much adjustment outside the one dial on the fork. There’s also no damping on the return so if your wheels leave the ground, you’ll hear and feel the suspension shoot back out full force. Lowering the pressure in the tires will absorb the smaller stuff and help the suspension FOCUS on the larger bumps.

I did have an issue with how the battery was secured. It’s mounted on the bike prior to shipping and there may be a customs ruling or other regulation type reason for that but regardless, as I was setting up the bike, I noticed that the battery was leaning to the right side. It was also wobbly when moving the bike. After using the key to remove the battery and look at the mount I found the problem.

It is held onto the bike’s down-tube with 3 bolts. This is a relatively normal installation other than the choice to use Phillips head screws. However, these were a little loose, and tightening them up didn’t really solve the issue, so I removed them to take off the mount and get a closer look.

Here you can see that each of the 3 screw bosses are proud by about 2mm. Again, relatively normal for mounting a water bottle cage, but not for balancing an eBike battery that weighs 9 lbs. Even if these were flush, you’d be balancing a flat-bottomed battery mount on a round tube. To solve the problem, I knocked out a quick design file and sent it to the 3D printer. Voila! A platform that matched the tube diameter and sat flush with the top of the screw bosses (in a matching white even). I was limited on the print bed size, so the front boss is still working that original way whereas the lower two are handling the support. I’ll end up printing a pair to support the full length, but this absolutely created a rock solid foundation.

What’s interesting is that they got this scenario right for the optional 2nd battery location. Here you can see that the top tube has a nice flat spot for securing the battery mount. I supposedly have a 2nd battery on the way so I’ll update this post with images of that mount and battery installed when it arrives.

I found this to look a little unfinished without a battery so I installed the storage case they sent along. It’s the perfect size for lunch runs down the hill to Jersey Mike’s. It fits a little awkwardly though so ultimately I ended up finding an old Timbuk2 shoulder strap pad that fit well after removing the padding. You can see that in the lead photo and some others as I promptly forgot that it wasn’t a stock item.

Another issue I ran into was the throttle. Both it and the matching grip on the left side felt good in the hand, but I noticed that when I twisted the throttle, it did not spring back to the neutral position. That could create a very dangerous situation.

After removing the throttle and looking closely, I found that there is no inner sleeve isolating the throttle from the handlebar surface. Basically, if the silver clamping collar is tightened and not perfectly square to the handlebar, the throttle is able to drag and bind internally. It could also occur if installed too far onto the bar where the inside end of the throttle/grip is contacting the end of the bar. The solution was sliding the throttle on until it stopped and then backing up about 1mm before clamping nice and square. It’s worked properly since then. Just always test before riding by twisting and making sure it snaps back.

I also noticed while riding the Engwe M20 eBike that the throttle has a delay in engaging the motor. Diving further into this off the bike, the throttle drives the motor almost immediately so what I noticed was the effect that my weight has on the torque and getting the bike moving. One of the biggest power draws is getting the bike moving from zero. If you pedal to start (or at least pedal and twist the throttle) you’ll get moving quicker.

Hill climbing is the other place that comes into play. The bike has to work a lot harder the more weight it has to move. I definitely need to pedal up hills in addition to the throttle or the speed will keep declining. Overall that’s not a big deal as the bike’s assist is definitely noticeable.

If you’ve got big hills or testing the weight limits of the Engwe M20 eBike, I’d highly recommend picking up the 2nd battery as well as I’m definitely getting less than the specified range. Keep in mind Engwe has listed those using assist level 1. We all know that’s an unlikely scenario when you have 4 more settings to choose from. I’ll know a bit more when I can play around with 2 installed, but doubling the range almost has no downsides other than adding some weight. The top tube position also gives it a bit of a moto gas tank feel which further adds to the look they’re going for.

I’d also recommend upgrading the brakes if you’ve got big hills. These mechanicals aren’t bad, but the rotor size is small and extended hills are going to have you squeezing pretty hard.

Speaking of weight, that round tube behind the seat is an awesome grab handle for moving the bike around or lifting it up onto a bike rack. If you do throw it on a rack, take a second to remove the batteries as most eBike racks aren’t rated above 65 lbs per bike tray and regular racks can be far below that.

What I’d change

Final thoughts

Overall, the Engwe M20 eBike is really fun and a great way to get around. The assist levels are great and with the included throttle you can just keep rolling. I can see this being really popular with teens getting to and from school as it would hit the sweet spot of range and rider weight. Nice work Engwe. Looking forward to more bikes like this.

How Long Does It Take to Charge 52V E-Bike Battery? Quick and Effective Charging Guide

No doubt e-bikes have brought in new dynamics for all casual commuters, working professionals, adventurers, cycling enthusiasts, etc. That’s why the demand for ebike is increasing excessively.

However, their batteries and it’s charging have become the most concerning query of all. One of the most frequently asked questions is how long to charge a 52V ebike battery in order to maintain its health and increase its lifespan.

But, Why 52v ebike battery only? Because it’s mostly used in high-powered e-bikes such as 750w and above. Hence, knowing the working of a battery like its charging time, what are the expenses, maintenance, and similar questions are very important.

If you have a 48v ebike battery, I have already covered how long to charge a 48-volt electric bike battery with various AHs. Don’t miss to read. This article aims to FOCUS on the 52v ebike battery charging time and also cover all answers to the frequently asked questions by riders. Let’s begin.

Introduction to 52-Volt Ebike Battery

An e-bike battery, especially a 52V one has a higher level of power and capacity to provide as compared to a 36V or 48V battery. It can store more energy if you increase the AH, which means it can power an e-bike for a longer distance and provide more power to the motor, learn more.

over, the charging time for a 52V e-bike battery can vary depending on the battery’s capacity (AH) and charging rate. Where it can take several hours to charge the battery fully, but some fast chargers can reduce the charging time significantly.

How Long to Charge a 52V Ebike Battery | Factors Affecting 52V Ebike Battery Charging Time

As I have already mentioned that a 52v battery on ebikes is great and powerful and comes with different AHs starting from 15 Ah to 40 Ah. Battery with higher AH takes long hours to charge and vice-versa.

Apply this formula to calculate the charging time for a 52v ebike battery:

Charging time = Battery’s AH/Charger Amp

For instance, a 52v battery with a 20Ah capacity and a charger of 4 Amps. Let’s calculate how long will it take to charge using the above formula:

Charging time = 20 Ah / 4 Amp = 5 hours

As you can see a 52-volt electric bike battery takes around 5 hours when charged with a 4 amp charger. If you increase the charger amps, the charging time will reduce and vice-versa.

Let’s see some important factors that affect 52V ebike battery charging time.

Charging Voltage

A 52V ebike battery requires a charger with a minimum output of a charging voltage of 58.8 volts. This is because the battery has a nominal voltage of 52V, but requires a slightly higher voltage for charging.

Because a fully charged 52v battery has a voltage of around 58 volts. So if you don’t charge the battery with a compatible charger, it will take long hours to charge it as well as it may damage the battery internally.

Charging Time

When it comes to the charging time for a 52V electric bike battery, it can vary depending on the battery’s capacity (Ah) and the charging rate of the charger. AH stands for Amp-hour of the battery which is considered as the fuel tank.

Charging time = Battery’s AH/Charger Amp

For eg: 20 Ah/4 Amp = 5 hours

engwe, ebike, review, moto, range

52v battery with higher Ah will take long hours to charge and vice-versa. Therefore, a 52-volt battery can take anywhere between 4-8 hours to fully charge in order to last you for one long ride.

Charging Current

For a 52V e-bike battery it gets essential to use a charger that lies within the charging current range either by calculating the capacity or as specified by the manufacturer. Additionally, it should be noted that charging at a higher rate can hold your battery at damaging risk. So don’t do that!

Charge Indicator

In order to make your job easy and to ensure you charge your 52V e-bike battery at a correct and consistent rate we advise using a charge indicator that shows you the current level of the battery. Hence, allowing you to monitor the charging process.

Charging Cycles

A 52V lithium-ion battery has a limited number of charge cycles before it starts to degrade and lose capacity. It’s important to avoid overcharging or undercharging the battery, as this can reduce its lifespan and overall performance.

Charger Cost

This has to be one of the “often overlooked” factors. It is evident that a 52V e-bike charger is expensive. However, there are some cheap chargers available in the market as well but branded chargers have high quality and take standard time to charge the battery without affecting the battery.

Overall, a 52V e-bike battery can provide higher performance and a longer range compared to lower-voltage batteries, but it’s important to use a compatible charger and follow the manufacturer’s guidelines to ensure safe and optimal charging

Type of Ebike Battery Chargers Their Charging Speed

Depending on your convenience and your e-bike there are multiple chargers available in the market that you can resort to for charging your 52V battery.

Hence, let’s see what options you get and how long it takes to fully charge your 52V ebike battery.

Standard ChargerFast ChargerPortable ChargerUniversal Charger
The charging output offered is around 58.8 Volts. Even after having the same voltage of 58.8, fast chargers are designed to charge at a higher rate than a standard one. This is one of the smaller, lightweight options for charging your 52V e-bike battery with a voltage of 48V. If you have multiple batteries and e-vehicles then this is probably the best charger for you since it is designed for different-volt batteries.
In a standard charger, the current generated is around 2-5 amps. The charging current is 5 to 10 amps, which helps in the same efficient charging. Being a smaller charger the charging current range is comparatively lower, say 1 to 3 amps. It typically has a voltage of 50V and a current range of 5 to 8 amps.
The overall time taken by a standard charger to fully charge your 52v e bike battery is 4 to 8 hours. Having a higher current range helps bring down the charging time to 2 to 4 hours. The charging time, when you are using a portable charger, depends highly on the capacity of your battery. However, the charging duration for a 52V e-bike battery will take around 3 to 5 hours.

Additionally, what type of charger you should use for minimizing the time taken to charge fully also depends on the type of e-bike you are using like MTBs, hybrid e-bikes, and so on. Thus, we recommend consulting the manufacturer of not only the e-bike battery but also the e-bike.

Charging Tips for Ebike Battery to Maintain Prolonged Battery Life

The charging timeframe for a 52v ebike battery is highly influenced by your maintenance capabilities. This is essential for having a prolonged battery life, generating optimum performance, and ensuring a longer life.

Here are a few ways by which you can maintain a healthy battery as well as inclusive tips for charging your 52V e-bike battery faster.

Avoid overcharging

Overcharging your 52V e-bike battery can damage it and reduce its lifespan. To avoid this, unplug the charger as soon as the battery is fully charged. For such conditions, the charge indicator comes as a great rescue.

Avoid deep discharging

Deep discharging your 52V e-bike battery can also reduce its lifespan. To avoid this, try to recharge the battery before it’s completely drained. Apart from that avoid letting it sit for long periods of time without recharging.

Don’t charge at higher rates

To charge your 52V e-bike battery faster, use a charger with a higher charging current output. over, make sure that the charger is compatible with your battery, as charging at a higher current than recommended can damage the battery.

Avoid extreme temperatures

For maintaining a healthy battery avoid exposing your 52V e-bike battery to extreme temperatures, as this can damage it and reduce its lifespan. Try to store and charge the battery in temperatures between 10°C to 25°C (50°F to 77°F).

By following these tips, you can maintain and prolong the life of your 52V e-bike battery, and also charge it faster without causing any damage.

Common Charging Mistakes to Avoid While Charging Electric Bike Battery

Just following the maintenance tips is not enough, instead knowing what not to do as a precaution helps charge your 52-volt e-bike battery way faster than you would think.

Here are some rookie mistakes you can avoid while charging.

Charging immediately after the ride

The battery becomes hot during after the ride. Most of you plug it to charge just after the use which increases the temperature of the battery. So don’t do that. You must allow a battery to cool down for a minimum of 15 to 20 minutes in order to reduce the risk of damage from overheating.

Storing a fully charged battery

If you are storing your 52V e-bike battery for an extended period, store it at around 50% charge. Storing the battery fully charged can damage the battery cells and reduce the overall lifespan of the battery.

Storing a fully depleted battery

Battery degrades when not in use for a few months. Still, most people store their ebike battery at a low charging level, and therefore such batteries become dead. If you do so, will face challenges while charging a dead battery and the lifespan will reduce.

Charging too fast

While it is possible to charge your 52-volt e-bike battery quickly, it is important to avoid charging it too fast. Charging the battery too quickly can generate excess heat and cause damage to the battery cells.

Undercharging the battery

Allowing your battery to be discharged completely can also damage the battery cells and reduce the overall lifespan of the battery. Charge the battery as soon as it reaches the recommended discharge level.

Conclusion About How Long to Charge a 52V Ebike Battery

The charging time for a 52V ebike battery depends on several factors such as the battery capacity, the charger output, the charging method, and the level of depletion of the battery.

Generally, it can take between 4 to 8 hours to fully charge a 52V ebike battery using a standard charger, while a fast charger can reduce the charging time to around 2 to 4 hours.

However, it’s important to note that charging duration can vary based on the specific e-bike battery and charger used.

Hope we could help you with these queries and assist your riders!

No, you cannot switch the handlebars on the Revv1. The variations you see on the site are the only options we have for our electric bike models.

Can you ship to _?

We only ship our electric bikes within North America. The Continental United States is FREE. Shipping electric bicycles to Canada is 400. Currently, not shipping to Hawaii. We are not responsible for any additional tariffs charged by your local government which are often-times applied after importing electric bikes. Unfortunately, we are not able to ship our electric bikes directly to Europe or Alaska at this time. You can use a shipping forwarder like ShopUsa.com to reach your country.

Are the bikes water-proof?

The electric bikes are not water-proof, they are water-resistant, rated IP-65. While we do not recommend leaving the bikes out in the rain or riding in the rain or other hazardous conditions due to personal safety, our electric bikes can handle water exposure. Leaving your ebike in the rain or other hazardous conditions could shorten the lifespan of the electric bike.

What Is a Moped-style eBike?

The difference between an ebike and a moped-style ebike is all in design and top speed. Typically, moped electric bikes have programming and motor capabilities that allow for a higher top speed than class 3 ebike regulations allow. This is more than 28 mph, but designed for private property and technically not legal to ride on public roads at these speeds. Additionally, moped-style electric bikes are typically designed with wide tires, classic moto-inspired styling and have a retro look, akin to cafe racer motorcycles.

Our Revv1, available in Graphite Gray and Moss Green, is pre-programmed as a Class 2 e-bike, so you can ride most anywhere at twenty miles-per-hour with throttle and pedal assist. However, you can unlock the programming to reach speeds north of 28 mph. This is intended for private property only.

This agile and robust bike is tough enough to cope with the most demanding of rides. However, with its practical and sturdy design, it remains suited to any rider with a comfortable saddle, upright riding position and throttle forward use-case that provides a boost up to twenty-eight MPH or more when unlocked for “Off-Road Mode”

What Is the Difference Between a Moped eBike and Electric Moped?

A regular electric moped works on a twist-and-go basis. Akin to a motorcycle, they do not have pedals, require insurance and registration and are heavier than an electric bike because of a larger battery and frame build. An electric moped ebike incorporates a motor, does not require insurance or registration and has pedals so in theory, the rider is intended to power the bike by pedaling. This design bypasses the regulatory needs of a moped, has a smaller, lighter battery and incorporates an element of exercise that you do not get with an electric moped or electric motorcycle.

Ride1Up’s electric moped bike takes all the best bits from both types of vehicles and blends them to create something different. The Revv1 is a moped-style e-bike engineered with a café racer, moto-inspired design, giving our riders the best of both worlds.

What Are the Benefits of a Moped Ebike?

There are tons of reasons to consider an electric moped bike, commonly referred to as a moped-style ebike, whether you’re looking for a next-gen e-bike upgrade or an electric moped experience capable of more than a typical commute.

The Revv1 suits every environment, from stop-start city travel to off-road adrenaline-fueled rides and everything in between. Variable settings allow you to ride safely anywhere, releasing higher speeds for weekend off-roading or sticking to permitted top speeds on public roads. An electric moped ebike provides great energy-efficiency, where you can rely on the pedal assist to extend your range or use the throttle when you’re looking for a more thrilling, faster pace experience.

You’ll find the quiet motor, and lack of fumes a literal breath of fresh air, whether you’re navigating through heavy traffic or enjoying the feeling of cruising confidently for a superior ebiking experience.

How Is the Revv1 Different From a Traditional Electric Moped?

The Revv1 is a full-spec moped-style ebike with the safety features and functionality you’d expect from any premium-quality ebike–but the comparisons stop there! This exceptional electric moped acts like a hybrid between the two, with the capacity and build to cope with high-speed, rough multi-terrain off-road rides, with a super-stylish frame, rugged wide-profile tires, and a powerful motor.

Riders can commute in style, with an ergonomic frame created for comfort, and let loose on private land, by switching to Off-Road mode and unlocking speeds of twenty-eight MPH and above. If you’re after a fantastic moped-style ebike that looks incredible and adds exhilaration to your off-road adventures, the Revv1 is the only bike for you.

This is not an electric scooter, but like some of the fastest electric mopeds, we’ve added some extra-special features to boost your riding experience, with superb traction tires, a two-tone mounted display, and moto-style headlights, turn signals, horn and bright braking lights as a finishing touch.
