Lectric XPremium review: The most affordable, quality mid-drive electric bike that money can buy

by Micah Toll

With a powerful mid-drive motor, dual batteries, and other impressive features, it’s going to be hard for any other e-bike to compete in this space and at this price point for a long time.

Lectric XPremium Tech Specs Motor: 500W (800W peak) mid-drive motor Top speed: 45 km/h (28 mph) Range: Up to 80-160 km (50-100 mi) Battery: 48V 20.8 Ah (1,000 Wh) across two batteries Weight: 34 kg (75 lb.) Max load: 150 kg (330 lb.) Brakes: Hydraulic disc brakes on 160 mm rotors

The Lectric XPremium, on the other hand, shovels in the value with more power, more range, better parts, and an overall better experience.

It’s a heavy bike at 75 pounds, which is one of its only downsides.

But it has so many other redeeming qualities that I’ve found I can look right past the weight, especially since I don’t really need to lift it up stairs or onto a car rack.
