  • Hydraulic 2-piston disc brakes deliver powerful stopping to Bushwacker riders.

  • A mechanically proficient owner found the Bushwacker’s GT MRK 860 air suspension fork to be excessively stiff.
  • A couple who bought Bushwackers said these bikes are heavy to lift.
  • Bushwacker owners have described Rambo’s customer service as ‘kinda lacking’.
  • A loud clicking sound was reported from the Bushwacker’s internal hub, in higher gears.

Bottom line

How much bush could a Bushwacker wack if a Bushwacker could wack bush? Loads, apparently. With incredibly porky 4” inch wide tires and front air suspension; this hardtail, electric, hunting fatbike is intended to traverse diverse terrain with nary a whimper. Despite this, the fork was found to be stiff, despite multiple adjustments. The Bushwacker is equipped with a reputable Bafang 750-watt BBSHD mid-drive motor that delivers a maximum of 120 Nm of torque. This should push the Bushwacker up steep hills and carry a trailer full of game or cargo. It’s available in a single 19” frame size. Most owners were satisfied while others were disappointed with Rambo’s customer service and a lack of warranty support.
