AddMotor M-340 review: A fat-tire electric trike that can do burnouts!

by Micah Toll

It recently received some nice upgrades, so we decided to put the newest version of the e-trike to the test.

AddMotor M-340 Tech Specs Motor: 750W front-geared hub motor Top speed: 20 mph (32 km/h) Range: Up to 85 miles (137 km) Battery: 48V 20Ah (960 Wh) Max rider weight: 350 lb (158 kg) Rear rack max load: 100 lb (45 kg) Brakes: Mechanical disc brakes on 180 mm rotors (three total)

AddMotor M-340 Tech Specs (Cont'd) Front tire: 24″x4″ Rear tires: 20″x4″ Price: $2,999 Extras: LCD display, integrated head/tail/brake LED lighting with rear turn signals, bell, electric horn, half-twist throttle, included front and rear baskets, comfortable two-part saddle with adjustable back rest, wooden footrest

The front is a 24-inch wheel that provides better obstacle climbing than smaller wheels, while the rear uses 20-inch wheels that sacrifice some marginal ride quality in exchange for a lower rear end.

To be honest, though, you don’t lose much ride quality with the smaller wheels since you’ve got a combination of fat tires with plenty of squishy air volume and also a front suspension fork to soak up the front bumps.

In fact, this is one of the few e-trikes available in the US that actually comes with front suspension, marking another key differentiator.
