Complete Breakdown of the Haoqi Cheetah

Motor and Power

Haoqi Cheetah: Motor And Power

The Haoqi Cheetah is equipped with a rear hub motor that’s capable of putting out up to 750 Watts of power. The motor also has a max torque output of 85 Nm.

Range

Haoqi Cheetah: Range

The Haoqi Cheetah can cover up to 90 miles (145 km) on a full charge. The bike comes in two configurations; a standard, single-battery model and a dual-battery model.

The standard model comes with a 48V 16Ah (768Wh) battery fitted into its frame while the dual-battery version is equipped with a supplementary 9Ah (for a total of 25Ah) pack bolted onto its down tube.

Speed

Haoqi Cheetah: Speed

The Haoqi Cheetah operates as a Class 2/3 electric bike. It has a top pedal-assisted speed of 28mph and a max throttle-assisted speed of 20 miles an hour.

This doesn't mean that the bike is not capable of providing electric assistance beyond 20mph. During our speed test, the Cheetah reached its max speed in just under six seconds. This was in throttle-only mode.

I’m 100% sure the Haoqi Cheetah can provide motor assistance, in full-electric mode, past 20mph. However, its controller has been programmed to restrict current flow to the motor once the bike clocks 20 mph.

Climbing Ability

Haoqi Cheetah: Climbing Ability

The Haoqi Cheetah, in my opinion, is a decent hill climber. It might get bogged down under certain conditions but it is powerful enough to comfortably travel up moderately-steep hills.

While pure-electric (throttle-only) mode might not get you up very steep inclines, tapping into the bike's natural gearing system should supplement its overall torque output (the bike comes with a Shimano 7-speed transmission).

Weight Limit and Net Weight

Haoqi Cheetah: Weight Limit and Net Weight

The standard Haoqi Cheetah (with one battery) weighs about 73 lbs (33kg). While this might sound like a lot of bulk, it's worth noting that the bike is able to support up to 350 lbs (159kg) of weight.

Portability

Haoqi Cheetah: Portability

The Haoqi Cheetah is a large electric bike. This fat-tire e-bike measures up to 73.6 inches (187cm) in length and about 43 inches in height. Its frame is also not foldable so you might not be able to fit it in small places.

Build Quality

Haoqi Cheetah: Build Quality

The Haoqi Cheetah comes with a grayscale LCD meter that displays the bike's speed, trip distance, pedal-assist level, battery consumption, wattage, etc. Riders can also charge their smart devices on the bike using the LCD’s USB port.

If you're in the market for a durable but budget-friendly electric bike, you might want to check out the Haoqi Cheetah. The bike's build quality is top notch.

The bike's components are well fastened to its frame and even its frame is made out of a strong but highly corrosion-resistant material (6061 Aluminum).

Display and Controls

Turning, Control and Balance

Haoqi Cheetah: Turning, Control and Balance

The Haoqi Cheetah is equipped with 180mm Gemma mechanical disc brakes. These brakes are very responsive, don't require frequent adjustments/maintenance, and have motor cut-off functionality.

Haoqi ships the Cheetah to customers with a lot of free accessories. The e-bike comes with a pair of fenders, a heavy-duty rack, a trapper hat, a bright headlight, and a pair of cycling gloves.

Water Resistance

Haoqi Cheetah: Water Resistance

All Haoqi electric bikes are moderately resistant to water. The Cheetah, for example, can ride under light rainy conditions and should be able to handle water sprays from all directions.

However, one thing you must never do is submerge the bike in water or hose it down with a pressure washer as its enclosures are not watertight enough to keep water from getting to its electronic components.

Suspension and Tire

Haoqi Cheetah: Suspension and Tire

The Haoqi Cheetah comes with two shock absorbers; front hydraulic forks on the front side and a coil spring shock on the rear side.

The front fork supports up to 80mm of wheel travel and it can be adjusted to reduce/increase the spring's spring rate.

It also comes with large 4-inch wide tires which increase traction and improve overall ride quality.

Upgrades and Acessories

Haoqi Cheetah: Rear Rack

Haoqi ships the Cheetah to customers with a lot of free accessories. The e-bike comes with a pair of fenders, a heavy-duty rack, a trapper hat, a bright headlight, and a pair of cycling gloves.
