Bikonit Warthog HD750 Review: E-Bike Overview
The Bikonit Warthog HD750 is an electric fat bike designed for serious outdoor activities. Whether you’re looking to tackle backcountry trails, embark on multi-day camping adventures, or haul large game back from your tree stand, Bikonit’s HD750 has you covered.
Rolling on beefy 26″ x 4.5″ Kenda fat tires, this bike can comfortably handle sandy beaches, muddy trails, gravel, and snow with ease. The 9-speed shifting is smooth and the bike performs well in both pedal-assist and throttle mode.
As Bikonit is known for, the Warthog HD750 comes with a premium aluminum alloy frame that integrates both batteries nicely into the frame’s downtube. While there are other dual-battery fat bikes on the market, very few brands integrate both batteries into the frame. The result is a nicer-looking e-bike that definitely gives off a premium vibe.
The MD750 also features Cityway CNC pedals for sure-footed pedaling and the bike’s full color LCD display is readable in all lighting conditions. The MD750 also supports USB charging which is great news if you typically like to bring your phone and other electronic accessories along.
Depending on the battery configuration, this bike can provide a max range of anywhere from 35 to 80 miles, which is enough to take you just about anywhere you need to go. The batteries are also removable, so freh batteries can be swapped out for even greater range.
While not as heavy as Bikonit’s MD1000 and MD750 models, the Warthog HD750 is still a big bike. Weighing in at 64 pounds without the battery, the HD750 can weigh as much as 81 pounds when configured with the optional dual-battery setup. Of course, adding accessories like cargo racks, baskets, and mounts will quickly push the weight of this bike up to the 100 lbs range.
As far as the bike’s measurements go, it’s 78.5″ long with a 50.3″ wheelbase and a 45.5″ handlebar height. The standover height is 29″ and the seat height adjusts from 35.1″ to 39″.

The Bikonit Warthog HD750 is an easy bike to ride, delivering a stable, smooth ride regardless of the terrain. We’ve always been huge fans of fat tire e-bikes, and this is a nice one — providing riders with an enjoyable, trouble-free riding experience.
While not on par with the mid-drive BAFANG motors in Bikonit’s higher-priced models, the 750W rear hub motor provides plenty of get up and go. Whether climbing hills, hauling gear, or cruising around town, the HD750 has the power to get you where you need to go in a hurry.
The Bikonit HD750 is a well-built bike, and the construction quality is what you’d expect on a bike of this caliber. The componentry package is very nice and Bikonit’s frames are top-shelf.
The HD750 is an impressive-looking electric bike, and the thick frame and massive Kenda tires are guaranteed attention-getters. We love how Bikonit integrated the bike’s massive batteries into the frame and the three available color options are all nice (Sandstone, Matte Grey, and Matte Black). It’s unfortunate that Bikonit doesn’t offer a camo paint finish for this model — at the moment riders have to ante up for the brand’s flagship MD1000 model for that option.
Like Bikonit’s other electric hunting bike models, the HD750 is a fairly stripped down fat tire electric bike, missing the rear rack and fenders typically seen on competing models. While it’s easy enough to add these options on, we’d like to see at least a rear cargo rack included with the HD750, especially considering the bike’s target market.
In addition to its three electric bikes, Bikonit also sells a small range of replacement parts and accessories, including racks and baskets, fenders, covers, pannier bags, and batteries.
As far as customer support goes, Bikonit has a better reputation than most consumer-direct e-bike manufacturers. The company’s customer support department is friendly and seems to do a good job of handling customer inquiries and issues.
Bikonit can be contacted through the live chat feature on its website, via telephone, email, or through the company’s social media profiles. There’s also a helpful Bikonit owners community on Facebook that we’d recommend joining.
Bikonit provides a 1-year warranty on all of its e-bikes and there’s also a 15-day return policy to ensure that customers are satisfied. While it’s nice that the company allows returns, it should be noted that they do charge a 15% restocking fee plus return shipping costs — so returns are costly to customers. Also, there’s an additional 1% restocking fee tacked on for each mile over 10 on the odometer.

As with Bikonit’s other two e-bike models, we’re impressed with the build quality and performance of the Warthog HD750. This is a fun, durable bike that does a lot really well, and it’s a great platform for hunters, anglers, and camping enthusiasts who want to build a custom rig. Easy to customize and capable of handling a large payload capacity, the HD750 is a great choice for sportsmen who love the build quality and performance of Bikonit’s rides but need something a bit more budget-friendly than the brand’s more expensive models.
