The Revi Cheetah is one of the best electric bikes on the market today. It's fun to ride, powerful, comfortable, and outfitted with safety features like hydraulic disc brakes and automatic motor cutoff sensors.
Riding your Revi Bikes Cheetah fat tire ebike can feel like you’re on a motorcycle when using the twist throttle only (no pedaling required). The stitched faux-leather throttle grip is located on the right of the handlebar, giving it a motorcycle feel. With its 4-inch fat tires, the Cheetah is great for off-road adventures and will give you hours of riding excitement. It comes in night black with faux leather seat and grip accents, and platinum grey with black accents.
The Revi Bikes Cheetah doesn't just look like a motorcycle, it features a powerful 750W nominal output (1200W peak output) rear hub motor that can achieve assist speeds of up to 28 mph. This motor is paired with a robust 48V battery (13Ah and 17.5Ah options) that will give you a long range of travel per charge. When riding the Cheetah, steep hills and harsh headwinds will not slow you down.
The Cheetah ebike is designed with comfort in mind. It has a very cushy gel spring-loaded saddle, and you can adjust the fat tire pressure down to 5psi for a more cushioned ride. You can ride the Cheetah like a city bike, or take it off-road for hours of riding without discomfort.
The Cheetah is constructed from aircraft-grade aluminum alloy, with expertly welded seams throughout. This ultra-strong frame can endure rough off-road conditions without the risk of breaking. Moreover, this classic ebike is outfitted with strong hydraulic disc brakes, giving you authoritative stopping power when it’s needed most. There are also sensors in the brakes that will detect brake activation and immediately cut power to the motor.
This is the best way to transport the Revi Bikes Cheetah Electric Bike, on a hitch-mounted motorcycle rack.
Inspired by the 1960s Café Racer motorcycles, the Revi Bikes(formerly Civi Bikes) Cheetah is a powerful and elegant electric cruiser bike.
If you like to travel in style, fast and wild like its namesake, then the Cheetah might be the electric cruiser for you. It's one of our most popular models, and for good reason.
The Cheetah embodies the aesthetic soul of the British Café Racer motorcycles of the early 1960s, where the bikes were used for short, quick rides between cafés, in Watford at the Busy Bee Café and the Ace Café in London.
Left side grip with pedal assist and headlight controls
The Café Racer represents speed, status and rebellion. It's the preferred ebike of some very famous and rebellious celebrities and entrepreneurs. It features swept-back handlebars with stitched grips, a comfortable saddle with spring suspension, a high-capacity battery built into the teardrop gas tank, and a large LED headlight with a light grill.
Right side grip with mechanical bell, gear shifter, and half-grip twist throttle
Looks aside, the Cheetah electro cruiser is outfitted with some impressive electronics. It features a powerful 750W (nominal output) Bafang rear hub motor, which is paired with a long-range 48V/13Ah (or 48V/17.5Ah upgrade option) lithium battery with Samsung cells and a Samsung battery management system (BMS).
The hydraulic disc brakes from Tektro give the Revi Bikes Cheetah authoritative stopping power, which is essential for a heavy electric bike. There are sensors that will automatically cut power to the motor when the brakes are activated; an essential safety feature.
Drive modes include the 7-speed drive train, which allows you to ride the gears like a conventional bike; a 5-level pedal assist system that will give your pedaling a boost on-demand; and a right-side twist throttle which can propel you up to 28 mph, without even pedaling.

Now loving my bike after issues sorted. Use it almost daily...commuting...touring and off roading. It is serious fun and attracts lots of attention. Suggest installing titanium backed pads from start...big difference over standard pads. I modified my rear axle fixing by adding a larger nuts and used the original as a lock nuts...wheel stays securely in place now. Bike frame is a work of art and allows for staggering performance. 3,000 miles and still super awesome fun :)
Thank you Gregor. Your honest review is much appreciated.
Thank you for helping me find my perfect ebike. Like your name says, it’s really good. I ride every day and love the freedom it gives me.
Thank you Sandy, it's really appreciated.
We ordered this ebike for a photo shoot, and ended up falling in love. So much fun to ride.
Thank for the review Brett.
This bike is a delight to ride. Arrived sooner than expected. I really appreciate how communicative Steve was -- the model I originally wanted was out of stock, and he called right away to let me know. He didn't call while I was at work, followed up promptly, and worked with me on price for the upgraded model so I didn't have to wait 2 or 3 months for the one I was originally looking at to come back in stock! If you're antisocial, you may want a different bike - everyone seems to have something to say about it. Lots of questions and comments. My favorite so far is that it looks like Indiana Jones' bike. The accessory bundle is awesome, though a little difficult to assemble - they leave some key details out of the instructions but with a little trial and error it wasn't too hard to figure out. It's a heavy bike with plenty of momentum, but very sturdy. I have crashed it once and there was no damage beyond some scuffed paint (and my busted lip!). It handles really well and makes going up hills a dream. I love being in control of how much exercise I want to put in, and I'm riding it everywhere - it's my go-to transportation for anywhere in town. Very fun, and a great investment. You won't regret it!
Frances, thank you for such a nice review. It's really appreciated.
I came across this bike through a friend and fell in love. It is well worth the price and the free gifts offered here were a bonus. The excellent service was also quite refreshing.
