In a world increasingly focused on sustainability and eco-friendly means of transportation, the E-bike is steadily gaining importance as a practical and emission-free alternative to traditional cars.

In this blog post, we’ll take a close look at the Engwe EP-2 Pro E-Bike. We’ll delve into the technical specifications, design, and everything else that makes this vehicle interesting. From my initial impressions to practical aspects like battery performance, portability, safety, and maintenance, I’ll explore all facets. Join me on this discovery journey to find out if this innovative E-Bike truly delivers the complete package of style, power, and versatility as promised.

Technical Specifications of the E-Bike

Before diving into the details, let’s take a look at the technical specifications of the Engwe EP-2 Pro. This E-Bike impresses with its unique specifications. Powered by a 750-watt motor (250-watt motor in the EU version) cleverly built into the rear wheel, it promises powerful acceleration and effortless mobility. The 20-inch diameter wheels with a width of 4 inches not only provide a robust appearance but also excellent riding comfort. With a total weight of 32 kilograms and a foldable middle part and handlebars, the Engwe EP-2 Pro proves surprisingly portable despite its size.

The 48V battery with 13 cells delivers a solid 13Ah and enables a range of 120 kilometers. This is not only convenient for longer trips but also environmentally friendly. The on-board computer provides information on current speed, trip distance, motor activation, and maximum speed – all at a glance. A solid foundation on which we will closely examine the many advantages of this E-Bike.

A special highlight is the extra-wide tires, which not only create a cool look but also provide additional grip and riding stability. Additionally, the Engwe EP-2 Pro is certified according to EN15194 (only the EU version).

Unboxing and Assembly

The Engwe EP-2 Pro is delivered in a box, with a total weight of about 35 kg. Some assembly work is required, such as attaching the handlebars, saddle, front and rear tires, and lighting. Fortunately, a YouTube tutorial by Engwe significantly facilitates assembly, allowing even less tech-savvy individuals to assemble the bike in about an hour.

First Impression and Design

The bicycle is definitely an eye-catcher, with bold tires that not only stand out visually but also promise stable riding comfort. Despite its weight of 32 kilograms, the E-Bike feels surprisingly agile. The foldable design makes it relatively portable despite its size, which is practical for those who want to take it on vacation or transport it on public transportation.

Design and Build Quality

The Engwe EP-2 Pro impresses not only with a robust and functional design that exudes a sense of adventure but also offers the opportunity to express your personal style, thanks to a color choice in Orange, Black, and Gray. The 4-inch wide tires and sturdy frame emphasize that this E-Bike was specifically designed for challenging terrains such as mud or sand. The consistently good build quality is evident in precise welds, while the durable paintwork underscores its resilience to the challenges of off-road riding.

Fahrkomfort und Ergonomie

The riding comfort of the Engwe EP-2 Pro remains noticeably pleasant even after extended bike rides, thanks to its ergonomic features. The saddle, not only adjustable in height but also equipped with suspension, provides a comfortable cushioning during the ride. Similarly, the handlebar can be individually adjusted in height to ensure an optimal ergonomic position for every rider. This makes every ride comfortable, whether it’s a short city trip or an extensive tour.

Drive System and Gear Shifting

The heart of the E-Bike is its powerful 750-watt motor (or 250W in the EU version), which, combined with a responsive gear shifting system, turns every ride into a pleasure. The 7-speed gearbox proved to be extremely reliable during my rides, shifting smoothly without any issues. Although the performance was convincing, I personally would prefer a few more gears. However, the motor consistently delivers ample power. The standard 5-level adjustments in assistance seemed a bit coarse to me. Fortunately, there’s a helpful guide on YouTube on how to fine-tune these adjustments more precisely through the on-board computer. The pedals of the Engwe EP-2 Pro give a solid impression, providing a stable riding feel. They contribute to an overall secure and stable riding experience.

Suspension and Brakes

Safety is a top priority for the Engwe EP-2 Pro. High-quality disc brakes (160 mm front and rear with cable pull) ensure reliable deceleration in all situations. Despite the initial squeaking of the brakes, I was able to successfully resolve the issue thanks to the guide from rebike. Additionally, the E-Bike offers an adjustable front suspension fork for even more comfort and control. The wide 20×4.0 inch tires (replacement tires) not only contribute to a stable riding feel but also enhance ride stability, significantly reducing the risk of falls.

Display and Controls

The display features three buttons: a power switch for the E-Bike, a power switch for the lighting (the display even dims), and a button for navigating through the onboard computer. The E-Bike is equipped with a lighting system that enhances visibility in traffic, and reflectors that improve safety in low-light conditions. The rear light not only functions as a taillight in darkness but also signals braking to following traffic. A standard bell is also installed, adding to road safety.

Practical Aspects

Battery Performance and Range

A crucial aspect of E-Bikes is undoubtedly battery performance, and the Engwe EP-2 Pro impresses in this regard with a capacity that allows for extensive tours or multiple short rides between charges. The lockable battery with ignition lock offers three positions: On, Off, and Lock, enhancing both security and control over the E-Bike’s power supply.

The battery itself is a 48V 13-cell model from Guangzhou Liteneng New Energy Co. Ltd. A compatible replacement battery is available on According to the manufacturer, this battery can achieve an impressive range of 120 km. While I haven’t fully tested the entire range, the battery held up well after a 20 km ride, tackling 602 meters of elevation with an average speed of 10.8 km/h on very muddy terrain.

Unfortunately, there is no battery indicator on the battery itself. To determine the charge status, the battery must be in the E-Bike.

Another practical aspect is that the battery is located within the frame and can be charged through a lockable opening in the frame. Alternatively, the battery can be removed, but for this, the frame has to be folded. However, those who need to charge their battery separately from the E-Bike will face a struggle each time.

Folding Mechanism and Portability

The folding mechanism of the Engwe EP-2 Pro is a clever feature that remarkably enhances the mobility of this heavy E-Bike. The frame can be easily folded, along with the handlebars, facilitating storage and transport in tight spaces. Even the pedals can be folded, further reducing the overall size of the bike. This is especially beneficial for owners with limited space in communal bike storage or for those who need to store the E-Bike indoors.

Despite these well-thought-out folding features, it should be noted that carrying the E-Bike is not as easy due to its high weight. The folding mechanism plays a crucial role in storage and transportation, making it convenient and space-saving to store the Engwe EP2 despite its weight.
