Summary of Reviews

We have read all expert and user reviews on the Rambo The Savage. In summary, this is what cyclists think.

8 reasons to buy

  • The Savage is kit out with a 750W Bafang motor with a peak output rating of 1000W.
  • Owners say the Savage capably climbs steep hills, by throttle alone.
  • The Savage’s internal 3-speed hub protects gearing and prevents vegetation from becoming caught in the bike’s drivetrain.
  • Riders are pleased with the 35-40 mile range offered by the Rebel’s 14Ah battery.
  • The Savage has the power to tow a trailer full of game and/or kit.
  • Owners find it easy to read the Savage’s TruckRun LCD screen.
  • The Savage hauls heavy riders over 250lb, with aplomb.
  • Users say the Savage is easy to assemble in a reported two hours.

6 reasons not to buy

  • Two owners reported grinding, slipping and/or clunking when climbing on their new Savage.
  • An owner’s new Savage lost power rapidly.
  • After rolling without pedaling, the Savage’s computer may reset.
  • A tester says the Savage has low bottom-bracket and pedal clearance.
  • One owner’s battery drained very quickly on their new Savage.
  • Three owners described “evasive”, “dishonest” and “unhelpful” customer service from Rambo, in addition to providing incorrect parts and not honoring warranties.

Bottom line

The Savage is a rigid e-fatbike fitted with Bafang’s 750W BBS02 mid-drive motor. Putting out a peak wattage of 1000W and up to 120Nm of torque, the Savage should be able to tote you and your cargo up most hills. A 14Ah battery ensures a decent range of up to (a reported) 40 miles. A couple of unlucky buyers received faulty models but, by and large, owners seemed satisfied. Even though the 4.0” wide tires are huge, as a bike without suspension, the Savage can also work as a multi-terrain commuter.

RAMBO Savage vs MN Jungle Ultimate Test

I think that for most people, the 750 is going to have enough power to get you around and get the job done. But for those that hunt in hill country or mountainous regions, you may want to go with something that has 1000 watts or more because I did have some trouble going up some of these hills here in Minnesota.

Rambo VS QuietKat VS Hardcore eBike. Comparison Test

This particular one is just running the standard mechanical brakes… on the base models you get no suspension. You’re gonna have to step up to that next level of bikes to get that suspension built-in.
