We don’t overstate in describing the Bezior XF200 as a beast on the road or off-road, to be exact. One of Gogobest’s latest eMTB offerings, it didn’t take long for it to start piquing everyone’s interest in the e-bike sphere. Let’s take a closer look at why this is so with this review.

A bonafide power behemoth
Power in e-bike terms can be interpreted in more ways than one. The Bezior XF200, it’s safe to say, has all forms of it.
First, is the more obvious power that you can enjoy from its high-octane 1,000W motor. It’s the kind of incredible torque output (67 Nm, to be exact) that allows it to still manage to negotiate tricky inclines and rugged hills even if you’re on the heavy side. With a 25mph (40 kmh) top speed, it’s a perfect companion for the speed demon at heart.
Power and versatility also brim from its imposing (in a good way) fat tires (with exact specs of 20″ X 4.0″ 60 TPI). They’re extra grippy, allowing you to not worry about riding on rougher terrains – all the more so in paved, urban ones.
What’s sure is that we tested it on capital-D Difficult terrain, and it performed spectacularly, to say the least. The tires are verified to be puncture resistant, too, which only adds the cherry on top.
Coupled with the dual shock absorbers (a rear wheel and a spring-loaded fork) and the 7-speed transmission, it’s certainly able to deliver the smooth ride that any rider wants when mountain biking on difficult paths. The 7-speed transmission pretty much highlights Gogobest’s understanding of how its models can deliver a smooth riding experience despite riding through varying terrains.
Thirdly, power also characterizes the hydraulic disc brakes. You can’t settle for anything mediocre when it comes to stopping power, especially on a hardcore eMTB. Both the front and rear brakes have the right sensitivity to stop at the right moment.
It delivers all of these different kinds of power without going overboard with the weight. 27kg (53 pounds) is fairly manageable and acceptable in e-bike terms. It’s further offset by the 204kg (550 pounds) weight capacity. Again, if you like mountain biking and can’t seem to find a product that suits your heavier build, then this is one option you should surely consider.

Generous riding range and battery capacity
The 35 to 80 miles (55 to 130 km) of riding range you can get leaves nothing to be desired. You can’t fault 35 miles of effortless riding with the help of the Pure Power Mode. With pedal assist, you can stretch that to 80 miles, so it definitely imparts better control over that essential aspect in that regard.
It definitely stands out from other e-bikes and scooters out there that can’t hold their battery lives for the life of them. We once took this out on a test ride where we rode it for an hour with Pure Power mode followed by a mix of pedal assist and Normal mode, and it only ate one bar. That should tell you how much of a power-saver it is.
The last mode is Normal mode, which lets it function like a conventional (though heavier) bike – great for those who want that experience from time to time or beginners transitioning from standard bikes to e-bikes.
All of that couldn’t have been possible without its 15Ah 48V lithium battery. It comes with a key lock, so you can remove and secure it with relative ease. And, yes, it’s chargeable even if it’s no longer attached to the frame. Despite its generous capacity, it takes only 6 hours to charge, making it a perfect choice for those who simply can’t get enough fun biking daily.

Laudable bells and whistles
You can’t expect to have too many accessories in an eMTB. The Bezior XF200 only provides everything that you need to aid and improve your e-mountain biking experience. For one, the multi-functional LCD display shows all the fundamentals like current battery level, distance, speed, and current riding mode.
The LED front lights are adequately bright to maintain night-riding safety and visibility. The horn on the handlebar is a nice added touch for more safety.
Great value for money
As of this writing, the Bezior XF200 sells for $1,400 (Take this price down to 1330 with 5% off by using F7WQ68 promo code, or save 100 USD when you buy BEZIOR XF200, Bezior XF200 Battery and BEZIOR Rear Rack). Considering everything it manages to deliver in that price range, it definitely gives you that coveted bang for your buck. That’s not to mention the lifetime warranty it comes with, which says a lot about the quality you’re getting for such comparatively low costs.
Without a doubt, it gives pricier competitors a run for their money, especially those that fail in comparison to its specs but cost twice or thrice more.
There may be flaws here and there, such as the fact that you can’t shift pedal assist levels from 1 to 5 immediately, but they’re not deal breakers.

A few words in conclusion
Overall, it’s fairly apparent why this Gogobest offering has been receiving rave reviews. It’s breaking the belief that better-specced e-bikes should cost thousands of dollars. It only goes to show that e-bikes are, indeed, becoming cheaper and proves the prediction that e-bike prices will stabilize over time has some weight to it.
