13 reasons not to buy

  • Owners have reported that the M-360’s folding handlebar latch comes loose.
  • The M-360’s cadence sensor delivers a slight delay in pedal-assist engagement.
  • When the M-360’s cadence sensor does engage pedal assist, it can be sudden.
  • Users find the M-360’s instruction manual lacking in operational information.
  • The Addmotor M-360 Semi-Recumbent Electric Trike is not inexpensive.

Bottom line

This Class 2 fat-trike can carry you through urban environs, grass meadows, down gentle dirt roads, and over firm beach sand. A 750W motor provides 80Nm of torque. Riders find this satisfactory for carrying themselves and their cargo (in the large rear basket) equalling up to 450lb. Brand-name parts are used for the motor (Bafang), drivetrain (Shimano), and brakes (Tektro). At 125lb, it is very heavy. The front wheel has a tendency to spin when engaging, especially up hills or on loose surfaces. The folding handlebar is convenient but does not lock well. Despite these issues, buyers and testers feel the M-360 is a good value option.

Addmotor Motan M-360 Electric Fat Trike

This is a beach cruiser tricycle. It’s related to a crank forward bicycle in that you can put your feet on the ground and the seating position is comfortable. The center of gravity is too far to the rear to the point that it’s impossible to climb a grade of about 10° or steeper. Even considering the problems, this is good value for the money.
