Bottom line

A fat-tired, retrodelic, Class-2 electromoped kit out with a 750W Bafang motor to help haul this ample rig around town at up to 23mph with minimal pedaling and maximal throttle. It’s set up with a long padded seat and rear foot pegs so you can easily carry a passenger, as long as your combined weight is under 300lb. With a 48V 20Ah battery, the claimed maximum range is 80 miles if the bike is kept at the lowest assist level. A realistic range would be half of this, which is still decent. Reviewers say that this bike has plenty of torque to carry two people at the bike’s speed threshold but that pedaling is not comfortable or easy. It’s 80lb of comfy cruiser. Just twist that throttle, sit back and roll.

Addmotor Motan M-66 R7 Review

The MOTAN M-66 R7 is a powerful, fast, and fun moped-style electric bike complete with passenger footpegs and a tool-free adjustable stem that makes it a breeze to adjust for riding with two people. Heavy and difficult to maneuver, the frame geometry makes for difficult pedaling, especially for tall riders.

Addmotor M-66 E-bike Review: An Electric Moped Built for City Riders

This isn’t a serious all-terrain vehicle. Instead, it’s an awesome street bike. It’s not optimized for pedaling since you can’t adjust the seat. The claimed range is a joke – you’ll never see that unless you actually keep it in pedal assist level 1 all the time. It’s quick, fun, and comfortable to ride, thanks to that plush seat.

Addmotor M-66 R7 Review: Moped Cruiser Electric Bike With Style

This is a moped style electric bike that is super fun to just cruise around on without even pedaling… a bit slower than other Bafang 750-watt motors we’ve tested… So, it seems like Addmotor may have custom-wound this motor for better hill climbing and acceleration.

Addmotor Motan M-66 R7 Review – Step-Thru Moped Style Ebike

We have this long, wide banana seat that can comfortably accommodate two riders easily and I’m actually surprised that with only a 750W geared motor and an extra person’s load, it rides and accelerates without any struggle. For pedaling, it’s not the most ideal position since the seat is not height adjustable. I personally have not seen any difference between the first level and the max/fifth level on this bike. I find this model performing above the average.

Review Addmotor Motan M-66 R7 Customer Service Front Fork Suspension Issue

I had a slight problem with this bike. When I rode it for a few miles I discovered that these bolts that are holding on the stanchions for the fork were very loose.
