Bikonit MD750 Review: E-Bike Overview
The Bikonit Warthog MD750 is an incredibly versatile fat tire e-bike that packs a serious punch. A well-built, fully-featured electric bike that’s great for both around-town commutes and off-road adventures, the MD750 excels in virtually all conditions, including snow, mud, sand, and gravel.
The Warthog MD750 has a great looking frame that’s made from top-notch, corrosion-resistant 6061 aluminum alloy. Bikonit offers the MD750 in a single or double battery configuration, and the company has done a beautiful job of integrating the massive LG batteries into the downtube of the frame.
Powered by a 750W BAFANG G510 CANBUS mid-drive motor that puts out 160Nm of torque, the MD750 delivers 500 lbs of towing capacity and 1500W of peak output. As far as max range goes, the MD750 can cruise for 35-100 miles per charge, depending on the battery setup.
While this bike packs a serious amount of power, it’s also very refined and provides riders with a smooth and comfortable riding experience. The chunky 26″ x 4.5″ Kenda Juggernaut tires offer outstanding stability and off-road handling, and the front air suspension performs very well when tackling rough terrain.
While Bikonit doesn’t ship its bikes out with cargo racks, the Warthog MD750 can be easily customized with racks, cargo baskets, mounts, and even a trailer for hauling camping supplies or large game.
Shifting is smooth, thanks to the bike’s SRAM X5 setup and the included 203mm Tektro hydraulic disc brakes deliver next-level stopping power.
As you’d expect from one of Bikonit’s all-terrain fat tire bikes, the Warthog MD750 is a big bike. Weighing in at 70 pounds without batteries (87 pounds when loaded with the max dual-battery option), the MD750 is 78.5″ long with a 50.3″ wheelbase. The bike’s standover height is 29″ and the handlebar height is 45.5″.
If the weight of the MD750 is a deal-breaker, we highly recommend checking out the entry-level Bikonit Warthog HD750 which shaves off about 6 pounds and features a BAFANG 750W rear hub motor.

As mentioned, the ride quality of the Bikonit MD750 is excellent. An easy to ride bike that delivers a comfortable, stable ride in bumpy conditions, the MD750 inspires confidence in the rider and it’s capable of handling whatever is thrown at it. Packing plenty of speed and the power needed to pull large loads and climb big hills with ease, the MD750 is one of those bikes that you’ll want to bring along on your most challenging outdoor adventures.
Bikonit is known for building great bikes, and the Warthog MD750 doesn’t disappoint. The frame of the bike is extremely well-constructed with nice welds and integrated batteries. Unlike most other dual-battery e-bikes, the company did a great job of integrating not one, but both of the MD750’s large batteries, adding to the premium look and feel of this model.
Bikonit also didn’t cut corners on the component package, and the brand name parts used for the build are of excellent quality.
As mentioned, we really love the frame design on this bike and it definitely gives off a premium vibe. This is a massive bike and one that’s guaranteed to turn heads everywhere you go. From the beefy frame to the huge Kenda fat tires, one look at the MD750 tells you that this e-bike means business.
As with Bikonit’s other two models, the Warthog MD750 is available in a few different colors, including Sandstone, Matte Black, and Matte Grey.
While the MD750 is a great platform for serious customization, the bike doesn’t ship with any accessories. Unlike many other fat tire e-bikes that include add-ons like fenders and cargo racks, Bikonit ships the bike in a stripped-down, minimalist configuration and leaves it up to customers to accessorize their bikes, as-needed.
At the bare minimum, we’d love to see Bikonit include a rear rack with the MD750, especially considering the fact that this bike is geared towards the hunting, fishing, and camping crowd. Perhaps that’s something that the brand will consider doing going forward.
Bikonit enjoys an excellent reputation for the level of customer support it provides its customers, and the company is easy to contact. Currently, the company can be reached via email, phone, live chat, and through its social media accounts.
The Warthog MD750 comes with a 1-year warranty and a 15-day return policy. Having said that, the company does charge a hefty 15% restocking fee on returns made during the 15-day window and the returned bike must have fewer than 10 miles on the odometer. If the mileage exceeds 10 miles, an additional 1% restocking fee is added for each mile. In addition to the restocking fee, customers are also required to cover the cost of return shipping.

Pros and Cons
- Beautifully-designed frame with nicely integrated batteries
- 750W BAFANG mid-drive motor packs a serious amount of power and torque
- Impressive range, especially when fitted with the dual-battery upgrade
- Air suspension and 26" x 4.5" Kenda Juggernaut fat tires provide a stable, comfortable ride
- Extremely versatile bike that can handle the beach, trails, snow, gravel, and more
- Included Tektro hydraulic disc brakes deliver serious stopping power which is important with a bike of this size
- 500 lbs of towing capacity is perfect for hauling large game and camping gear
- Rock-solid 1-year warranty

Yet another impressive offering from Bikonit, the Warthog MD750 provides avid outdoorsmen with a rugged, all-terrain platform that’s easy to customize to each rider’s specific use case. A bike that’s capable of doing it all, the MD750 gets high marks for versatility and is a lot of fun for around-town commutes, trails, and backwoods adventuring.
Overall, this is a nicely-equipped e-bike and the componentry is a good match for this ride. Riders who want a bump in power and the zero-maintenance perks of a Gates Carbon drive belt-based setup should check out the Bikonit Warthog MD1000 (although this top-of-the-line model is significantly higher-priced)
The only real downsides of the MD750 that we feel are worth mentioning are the bike’s heft (87 lbs when fully loaded with twin batteries) and the fact that Bikonit doesn’t include a cargo rack. The weight is to be expected on a bike of this type, but were surprised that the company doesn’t ship the MD750 with a rear rack which is a standard add-on that’s included with many fat tire e-bikes.
Bottom line — if you’re shopping around for a high-quality fat tire electric bicycle that’s dependable and extremely capable, the Bikonit MD750 is a model that we feel should be on your shortlist.
