This review is going to have three parts im gon na talk about the specs of the c bike. Im gon na talk about the test rides that ive taken and then im gon na give you my final thoughts on the add motor e43 Music. All right lets talk about the specs of the add motor e43 at the time of filming this ebike costs 15.99, and there are coupons from time to time that add motor will put out. So if youre interested in this ebike, you should keep an eye out for any coupons or discounts that could lower the price of the c bike in terms of frames. The e43 is a step through frame. There is a big brother to the c bike, which is called the e53 and thats a step over frame same exact, specs motor battery. All the components are the same, except that the only difference is the frame size and, i believe, some of the colors. So this particular model – the e43 comes in four different colors. Now lets talk about the actual components of this e bike and im going to start off with the battery. The battery is gigantic: its 960 watt hours, its 48 volt 20 amp hours, an ad motor. Actually, according to them, this battery can give you up to 125 miles on one single charge on pedal, assist level.
One and well talk about this later in the in the review, but um definitely one of the differentiators of this e bike. The second thing is the motor its a 500 watt, brushless rear hub motor and thats. You know not a big deal yawn, except that its 907 watt peak, so thats, really the big difference in this motor. Some of the other e bikes in this category. In this commuter e bike category under two rand, they have 750 watt nominal, but they actually peak at 750.. So this motor actually has more wattage some more power than some of these other motors, even though they claim to be 750 watt nominal. It also comes with hydraulic brakes, theres a front suspension which is really nice and thats really what makes it part of this category with this other. These other e bikes has integrated front and rear lights, and these lights actually come with a turn signal and theres. Also, a horn which is kind of nice, not the greatest horn or the turn signals arent the greatest, but its kind of nice that it has both the horn and turn signals. It also comes with a rear rack, which is nice, so you dont have to buy the rack so its a commuter e bike, thats ready out of the box and theres also an option to add a front rack all right. Now that you know a little bit about the specs of the seatback lets talk about our test rides, so i test rode the e43 on pave roads, and you can see me here on a paved road im at one of the campsites here in the central coast.
In california and carpenteria, but um i test ride it on paved roads, also, some dirt roads, some light trails just because this has a suspension. So why not? But i want to focus on three things when it comes to the test rides. I want to focus on the power of this e bike, the battery and then also the the comfort so im going to start off with power power wise, and we went over this in the in the specs of the c bike, its 500 watts. But this isnt a normal 500 watt motor it actually peaks at 907 watts and thats higher than the rad city 5 plus then the ventin level, then the right one up 700 series. So those all those bikes peak at lower amounts in this one. So, even though its 500 watts, it actually gives you more output than these other similar bikes in the same category, which is this commuter e bike with the suspension and hydraulic brakes um. So you have a little bit more power. It also has more zip. So when i go throttle only which obviously right now im not going im not going to throttle only, but you just feel the zip it just you know you can feel the power it gets up to. You could see it hitting the 900 watts when youre going throughout only so power wise. You know to me that was one of the things that stood out about this e bike.
The second thing that stands out about the c bike – and the other thing i wanted to mention – is the battery and we havent done a drain test, and it would probably take a lot to drain this battery, but its 960 amp hours, which is those other bikes That i mentioned earlier so that event in level the ride, one up: 700 series, the rad power, bikes, rad city, five plus those are 672 amp hours. So this is about 50 percent, more almost 50, more than those other bikes which are more expensive um. So you get a lot of battery for in this price point and we havent done a drain test. According to ad motor, you can get 125 miles in pedals pedal assist level. One theres no way that i would get 125 thousand pedals this level, one just based on my weight but um. I could see getting 75 to 100 miles in pedal assist level one i think, probably if we were going throttle only. My guess is that i would probably get 50 to 75 miles, throttle only so again, its just a big battery, given the price, this price point and um yeah so thats, the other thing that really stood out about this bike. The last thing i want to mention is just the comfort of this e bike, and you can see me here riding it, but comfort wise. I think theres a lot of little extra extras that come with this bike like, for example, it comes with hydraulic brakes.
So you know makes it really nice to stop on the drop of a dime with this bike, so it does its not a super um. You know it. Doesnt have a high speed compared to some of these other commuter e bikes. So the max speed on this ones 20 miles per hour, but its kind of nice to have really nice to have hydraulic brakes. I mean continuing to talk about comfort were now in a dirt trail and because it has a suspension just a little bit more comfortable than a rigid frame that doesnt have a suspension its also. This e43 is the step over frame, so its easy to mount and dismount. So it does have theres a big brother to this bike, which is the e53, which is a step through yeah, which is a step through frame but uh or im. Sorry a step over frame, but this is a step through frame which is kind of cool that makes it easy to mount and dismount so yeah again we have power that we talked about. We talked about the battery, which is a big battery and then um comfort. The comfort of the bike, so those those are the main three things that i wanted to talk about in the test rides. So i think, when you look at this e bike and at the time of filming its 15.99, so its a little bit under 1600, its just an affordable e bike in this category of commuter e bikes, and especially these that have hydraulic brakes and a suspension um Other e bikes in this category are the ride: one up 700 series, the rad power bikes, red city, five plus and the ventin level.
So all those other e bikes are more expensive more expensive than this one and they also have either you know. Definitely smaller batteries and smaller motors, or at least peak watt, outage or uh output than this e bike. So i think it provides a ton of value, so i think its a great buy for someone thats looking for a commuter e bike with hydraulic brakes, thats. Looking for a big battery, so if you have a long commute and youre looking for an affordable commuter e bike, then i think this is a great choice for you, so um its been a lot of fun.
