  • Some owners found that wires would get caught or stripped in the M-150’s hinge.

  • Some riders found the M-150’s stock saddle to be quite uncomfortable.

Bottom line

The Addmotor M-150 is a folding electric fat tire bike that comes in two sub-models. The R7 uses low-maintenance, solid, spokeless, alloy wheels with the hub-motor integrated into the rear wheel. The P7 uses conventional spoked wheels. These bikes use a 750W motor that outputs a claimed 1000W of peak power and 80Nm of torque. Fat 4” tires are fitted to small-radius 20” wheels to absorb bumps and ride on a variety of surfaces. At 68lb the M-150 is heavy. Most of this weight is situated toward the rear of the bike. Two owners have reported that their frame snapped in half at the hinge. This caused an injury to one rider. Hopefully, this issue has been amended.

Electric Bike Review

Addmotor Motan M150-P7 Review

I think the M150-P7 is a good choice for those who need a portable folding electric bike that can still be taken off-road and through some soggy terrain. This is definitely heavier than a lot of other folding electric bikes, and because the battery is located behind the seat tube, and because the motor is located in the rear wheel, it is quite back heavy.

Addmotor M-150 R7

Because of cast iron rims and fat tires bike is VERY HEAVY. Although it folds to be transported it’s a brick to lift. And last but not least but important… If you own this bike IMMEDIATELY replace the seat quick-release clamp. Mine cracked just from clamping it and it wasn’t even tight. Other than that zero issues with bike. 👏🏽
