Summary of Reviews

We have read all expert and user reviews on the G-FORCE ZM. In summary, this is what cyclists think.

10 reasons to buy

  • An expert calls the ZM "fast and peppy" with a "decent" range.
  • Reviewers agree the ZM is reasonably priced and a good budget-friendly alternative to similar Super73 models.
  • This bike can carry two people thanks to the 22-inch-long seat and 400lb load capacity.
  • The max speed is easily adjusted to fit Class 2 or 3 restrictions via the display.
  • An expert says the display is colorful, easy to read, and much nicer than those typical of competitors. It also has a USB charge port.
  • The ZM has front and rear LED lights. A reviewer says the headlight is "fantastic."
  • Experts agree the ZM has a distinctive, attention-grabbing style. They also appreciate the battery design, styled like a motorcycle fuel tank.
  • One tester notes the simple motor cable disconnect, which makes tire and tube changes easier.
  • The Ronglun hydraulic disc brakes are powerful and effective, according to reviewers.
  • Experts say the suspension, fat tires, and padded seat provide a comfortable on-road ride.

12 reasons not to buy

  • The misleading "14-day free returns" policy is a minefield of conditions. There's a 25% restocking charge, return shipping isn't included, and the box mustn't be opened.
  • Buyers voice frustrations over poor reliability and non-existent customer support.
  • One tester finds quality-control problems that could result in damage during assembly. Another's ZM is missing a fender.
  • The cramped riding position and ghost pedaling at high speeds mean pedaling is uncomfortable and impractical. A realistic throttle-only range is 30 to 40 miles.
  • Experts lament the lack of rear foot pegs for a passenger.
  • At 92.5 pounds as tested (G-FORCE claims 85 pounds), the ZM is heavy, even for a motorcycle-style e-bike.
  • A tester says the bike is sluggish when pulling away and when starting to climb. A user complains of his ZM's lack of torque.
  • The rear light doesn't operate as a brake light.
  • Experts agree that the suspension isn't suitable for off-roading. One thus questions the purpose of knobbly tires instead of slick street tires.
  • The ZM's 160mm brake rotors are too small, given the high weight and max speed.
  • According to one reviewer, motor assistance is too weak in PAS 1 and too strong at higher PAS levels.
  • The display menu settings are confusing and hard to use.

Bottom line

The G-FORCE ZM is a motorcycle-style e-bike with a 750W motor, 960Wh battery, and fat tires. Experts agree it's fun to ride and comfortable on the road. However, the primitive suspension limits off-road utility, and there's no practical way to carry cargo. The ZM is also very heavy, even for this style of e-bike. Although it looks like a decent option for riders seeking a license-free alternative to a real motorcycle, the ZM (and G-FORCE generally) appears to suffer from quality-control issues and poor customer support.

There’s a Reason This Company’s Name Is Called G-FORCE | G-FORCE ZM

My favorite feature of the bike has got to be the way it looks. I just think that’s a cool-looking bike. And the range… it can go a long way with a 185-pound rider.

The G-FORCE ZM is an impressive electric bicycle that allows someone who doesn’t own a motorcycle (like myself) to feel like they do. Heck, even people who have motorcycles might even appreciate this bike.

G-FORCE ZM Fat Tire E-Bike Overview

Most people that buy this are going to be riding it around like a little miniature motorcycle. If you’re looking for a bike for specifically pedaling to get exercise… it’s just really not built for that.
