Been saving up or just got a bonus? Our list of the best eBikes under $2000 is perfect for those with a slightly bigger budget. We’ve compiled a collection of the best commuter, folding, fat-tire, cruiser & mountain eBike models – alongside our all-around top choice.
Throughout this list, we’ve prioritized models with torque sensors. This is an ingenious system which measures rider output & determines the appropriate amount of power to propel the eBike. Such designs are perfect for those who enjoy cycling as both a hobby and as a method of transport.
So, let’s begin our list of the best eBikes under $2,000, starting with the Decathlon RockRider E-ST 900 eMTB:
Decathlon Rockrider E-ST 900 – Best Electric Mountain Bike
Decathlon is a renowned, industry-leading brand in the cycling scene. We found it no surprise that the Rockrider E-ST 900 pushed the limits without exceeding our $2000 price limit. With a RockShox JUDY hydraulic/pneumatic front fork, the ride remains comfortable across a number of terrains and environments.
It’s also one of the only eMTB models with a torque sensor, which is very rare at this price point. We were particularly impressed with its incredibly lightweight body, totalling just 22.1 kg. Perhaps best of all is the 36-mile range (~58 km), which is significant considering the battery size.
It seems that Decathlon has stopped producing the E-ST 900, so we recommend grabbing one if you can. Check out the full specs & features of the Rockrider E-ST 900 below:
If you’re looking for a top option for any commuter eBike, the Ride Scoozy Torque 1 is, well… “the one” for you! It offers outstanding performance and a great level of torque for the price. We’re especially impressed with its superlight weight of just 17.2 kg. Like almost every entry on our list, the Scoozy Torque 1 features a torque sensor in place of cadence.
We feel the Torque 1 is well worth it for this price point, with seemingly no sacrifice in quality. In fact, this model can support weights of up to 240 lbs, which should be strong enough for any commuter. The “comfort steel” front fork also enhances the durability of the Torque 1, soaking up any harsh hits and aiding in a smoother ride. Plus, it charges in just 4-5 hours!
We highly recommend seeing the Ride Scoozy Torque 1 for yourself. This commuter eBike is CURRENTLY ON SALE – Buy it for yourself now and save up to $400.
The Fiido M21 is a fully folding fat-tire eBike with a built-in torque sensor. We wouldn’t normally opt for a folding fat-tire, the frame is more than big & sturdy enough to fit its purpose. Alongside this, it’s also surprisingly affordable, which is unusual for such a versatile vehicle. The performance is great, boasting a top speed of 24.8 miles and a range of up to 62 miles per charge!
To see so much offered from a fat-tire eBike is a treat, especially one with a folding frame. And, much like most other models on our list, the Fiido M21 claims front & rear disc brakes, allowing for sharp and sudden stops in a matter of seconds. With a charge time of 7 hours, it could also make an appropriate alternative for commuters.
If you’re in the market for a fat-tire OR folding eBike, the Fiido M21 is your best bet. Check out its key specs & features below:
Another Fiido folding eBike, this time it’s the Fiido D21. The design of this model is clearly geared towards the city, or for roadside use. It has a much sleeker design that looks most suitable for a relaxing ride or a short commute. Of course, the D21 opts for a torque sensor over cadence, meaning that the eBike will suitably assess, match or exceed your physical input.
Whilst the Fiido D21 claims a slightly small motor output of ~250W, it still offers an incredible range of 49.7-62 miles (80-100 km) – with all components claiming an IP54 waterproof rating. This is quite the feat for a fully folding eBike, made possible by its 36V 11.6 aH lithium-ion battery. Amazingly, this beefy battery takes only 7 hours to charge from empty!
See the specs of the Fiido D21 below, and get ready for the Ride1Up ROADSTER V2, up next:
The 1Up Roadster V2 is an overhaul on their original roadster design—this time with a fully integrated (and very well concealed) battery & motor. Honestly, this design is so low-key, most people would think they’re looking at a traditional bicycle!
With a nearly full set of 5-star customer reviews (285), the Roadster V2 has quickly become the obvious choice for anyone in the eBike market. Although this model opts for a cadence sensor over torque, it was simply too good to not award the title of best road eBike. What we found most impressive was its 14.9 kg net weight, surprisingly low for a full-frame model!
See the full specs and features behind the 1Up Roadster V2 below, followed by our top pick for the best cruiser eBike under $2,000:
Introducing our top pick for the best electric cruiser bike, the “Simi Step Thru”. Riders can choose from 3 levels of pedal assist, each offering its own results regarding range, top speed and acceleration. The actual components behind this eBike are top quality, especially the Suntour Li-ion battery, Shimano gear indexing & Hi-Ten front fork suspension.
Perhaps most interestingly is the inclusion of cadence, torque, AND speed sensors, one of the very few eBike models we have seen to include this. All of this is packed into a fairly lightweight frame of ~24.5 kg, easy enough for most to carry. The low, walk-through frame is perfect for anyone who struggles to mount a traditional bicycle or has mobility issues.

AddMotor MOTAN M-70 Retro Fat-Tire eBike: All-Around Best
Introducing the AddMotor MOTAN M-70, our first choice for the “best cruiser eBike”. However, when we saw how full of features it is, along with its top-tier performance, we couldn’t resist!
Truly a design dripping with personality and attitude, the MOTAN M-70 packs a powerful 750W hub motor—allowing for top speeds of up to 25 mp/h for a maximum range of up to 55 miles!
It features 20″ fat tires, a comfortable “banana” seat, water-resistant connectors/wiring, an adjustable handlebar and integrated lighting. On top of everything, it charges in just 5-6 hours, very impressive considering the size of its Panasonic li-ion battery. Although it claims a cadence sensor over torque, we couldn’t resist placing this delightful design as our overall best eBike for under $2,000.
It’s like a lightweight mini-moped, but even more comfortable and responsive. With a record 4.8/5-star reviews from customers, it’s clear that the MOTAN M-70 delivers on all of its promises. Don’t delay, the M-70 is CURRENTLY ON SALE for $1,699 (save $200)!
