ENGWE Engine Pro Review: Powerful Full-Suspension Folding Ebike

Jordan Grimez
eBicycles score

The Engwe Engine Pro is an affordable folding electric bike with a similar design to the brand’s flagship EP-2 Pro.

This e-bike has a unique combination of characteristics that make it an attractive choice in this price range. Fat all-terrain tires, full suspension, a folding frame, and a powerful motor mean this bike can handle most surfaces.

That said, a high weight of 83 lb, folding-style geometry, and telescoping handlebars mean you should avoid technical off-road tracks.

Bikes like the Engine Pro are ideal for mixed-terrain commuters, delivery drivers, or for taking on camping trips. Engwe ensures it’s ready for urban living out of the box by including a rack, fenders, and lights.

Our Engwe Engine Pro 750W review will examine the specs and performance to see how this bike stacks up against the competition so you can decide if it’s a good choice for your needs and preferences.

ENGWE Engine Pro 750W Review: Full Suspension and a Folding Frame at an Affordable Price

The ENGWE Engine Pro electric bike is slightly over the top. The brand squeezed in as many features as possible. While this creates a unique and highly-functional machine, it adds a lot of mechanical complexity and weight, which may be a hindrance long term.

Four-inch tires, upright geometry, and dual suspension give the Engine Pro an ultra-comfortable ride quality on pavement and light off-road terrain. In addition, you can be confident in maintaining traction on soft surfaces and in wet weather thanks to these wide, knobbly tires.

Again, with a folding frame and urban-centric geometry, the Engine Pro is best suited to city riding. For this purpose, ENGWE added a rack, fenders, and lights. The electronics are also quite impressive for this price, providing more than enough power and range for the average urban rider.

The Engwe Engine Pro combines robust features and urban utility in a folding e-bike, offering diverse surface adaptability but its weight and complex design may challenge portability and maintenance.

All things considered, for just $1,500, you’re getting a lot of bang for your buck with the Engine Pro, especially if you want a bike with this set of features. However, if you don’t need a folding frame or you feel that full suspension is excessive, there are more practical options at the same price or less, such as the Rad Power Bikes RadExpand 5 or Lectric XP 3.0.

ENGWE Engine Pro E-Bike Pros and Cons


  • A peak power output of 1000W is enough
    for most hills.
  • The 8-speed gearing is more than average
    for this type of bike.
  • Hydraulic disc brakes provide solid
    stopping power.
  • An affordable price tag for the range of features.
  • Large color display.
  • The full-suspension, fat-tire combination provides more than enough comfort.
  • A rack, fenders, and lights are all included.
  • I-ERS system restores energy to the battery when pedaling on PAS 0.
  • ENGWE Engine Pro assembly is straightforward.


  • This bike is heavy, weighing roughly 83lb.
  • Low-quality components in some areas of the bike.
  • The stated max range is exaggerated.
  • A mechanically complex design will result in more maintenance.

A Full-Suspension Folding Frame With Upright Geometry

The ENGWE Engine Pro’s aluminum frame folds into roughly half its unfolded size, making it ideal for those living in apartments with limited space or who want to take it along on camping or road trips.

Be warned that the 83 lb total weight (before adding accessories) limits the portability. If you need to carry your bike upstairs to your apartment or lift it into your trunk regularly, be sure you’re comfortable lifting that weight first.

ENGWE chose a 61 mm non-branded suspension fork and a 42 mm HLT-100 rear shock to provide extra comfort on rough terrain. However, these add a lot of weight and could be considered unnecessary given the shock-absorbing characteristics of the 4″ tires. In contrast, the Lectric XP 3.0 only has a suspension fork and weighs 64 lb, while the RadExpand 5 is completely rigid and weighs 62.5 lb.

The Engine Pro’s telescoping handlebars create an upright ride position suited to urban riding and off-roading on non-technical trails. This handlebar design and a saddle with almost nine inches of adjustability mean the bike fits heights from 5’3″ to 6’5″. Additionally, the Engine Pro can support up to 330 lb, which is more than enough for this type of bike.

Impressive Power, Solid Range, and a User-Friendly Color Display

The ENGWE Engine Pro 750W motor provides plenty of kick. A peak power output of 1000W and 750W of continuous means you can easily take on steep inclines with a loaded bike.

While a 750W motor is standard for this type of bike, the Engine Pro has a couple of extra features that make it stand out.

Firstly, cruise control mode allows you to set and maintain the same speed by pushing the throttle to the open position. In addition, if you set the motor to PAS level 0 and continue to pedal, you will restore energy to the battery through the I-ERS energy-restoring system.

The Engine Pro has a 768 Wh removable battery which makes charging convenient. While ENGWE market this bike as having a range of 75 miles, this is unrealistic given the high weight, fat tires, and full suspension. However, they also mention that it will return an average of 22 miles on ‘Sport Mode.’ This is similar to the XP 3.0 Long-Range (65 miles) and better than the RadExpand 5 (45 miles max).

The ENGWE Engine Pro offers a powerful 750W motor with unique features, a sizable removable battery, and a large color display, though its heavy design overstates its 75-mile range.

Finally, the large color display is impressive at this price. It shows all the relevant ride metrics and has a Wattmeter that tells you how much power the motor is providing in real time.

Cheap Components Yet Feature-Rich

The Engine Pro has several features that give it broad functionality in urban environments. Likewise, the components chosen mean it’s capable of tackling mixed-terrain. However, the long-term durability is questionable, given the quality of the build kit. By trying to squeeze so much into $1,500, ENGWE had to make a few sacrifices.

You get unbranded 20″ x 4″ tires, cheap spokeless wheels, and off-brand suspension components. However, the Shimano Acera 8-speed drivetrain is a solid inclusion, better than the 7-speed microSHIFT and Shimano Tourney drivetrains used on the RadExpand 5 and Lectric XP 3.0.

Likewise, the Logan hydraulic disc brakes are cheap but offer better performance than mechanical disc brakes, commonly found at this price point.

Overall, ENGWE did well with most of the components, but the cheap suspension parts are likely to cause issues, so that’s the main downside.

Our Verdict: Ride or Pass?

A balance of comfort, urban functionality, power, and range make this a fun and practical bike to ride and own.

That said, it can be overkill for the needs of many e-bikers out there. Simply put, the full suspension and fat tire combination is unnecessary, especially on an ebike that’s best suited to urban riding.

All things considered, the ENGWE Engine Pro e-bike is a solid option if you’re looking for a heavy-duty folding e-bike that can handle mixed terrains. At $1,500, there are few options as feature-rich. For that reason, it gets a ‘ride’ verdict from us.
