Summary of Reviews

We have read all expert and user reviews on the Murf Higgs. In summary, this is what cyclists think.

9 reasons to buy

  • Murf offers the Higgs in step-over and step-through frames. The Higgs Step-Thru accommodates short riders from 4'11" and up.
  • The Step-Thru comes with a frame-integrated rear rack that supports up to 100lb.
  • An expert highlights the Step-Thru's frame and 15.5" standover height as ideal for smaller riders.
  • A reviewer says the Higgs achieves one of their "better brake test scores."
  • According to one expert, the 52-volt battery and 500-watt motor provide "impressive speed and acceleration" and cargo-lugging capacity.
  • In testing, the Higgs gets more than 60 miles of range, outperforming most similar e-bikes and Murf's claim of 50 miles.
  • A reviewer says the low center of gravity and wide tires contribute to "good handling and easy control."
  • Experts are impressed by the speed the Higgs maintains up their test hill.
  • A tester finds the puncture-protected Kenda Krusade 4" tires provide control on varied terrains.

6 reasons not to buy

  • The Higgs is heavy at "around" 55lb (step-over) and 65lb (step-through).
  • One tester experiences ghost pedaling at pedal assist (PAS) levels 3 and higher.
  • Despite Murf's claim about sizing, an expert thinks the Higgs doesn't suit riders 6' and taller.
  • One tester says the high weight and 4" tires mean pedaling without motor assistance is challenging.
  • An expert bemoans the large jumps in speed from PAS level 1 to 2 and 2 to 3.
  • The step-over build doesn't include a rear rack.

Bottom line

The Murf Higgs is a fat-tire electric cruiser available in a step-over or step-through frame. Experts praise the power, acceleration, range, and braking. They also appreciate the Step-Thru's high-capacity rack and suitability for smaller riders. However, it may be too compact for riders 6' and over. The bike is heavy, and the gear ratio results in ghost pedaling in three of the five assist levels. But overall, the "punchy" performance and cushy tires make the Higgs a "fun" and capable option for beachgoers and commuters.

Murf Higgs Step-Thru Review 2023 | Fun Low-Riding Utility E-Bike

Overall, our team was impressed with The Higgs Step-Thru’s ride quality and performance… This [52-volt] system sets the Murf Higgs apart from other e-bikes, and likely helps explain why they are priced higher than comparable bikes using lower voltage systems.
