Greenworks Launches Line Of E-Bikes, A Go-Kart, And A UTV

greenworks micromobility products

Greenworks started in 2002 to bring electric lawn & garden equipment to market. Their first product was a battery-powered string trimmer, then they got into mowers, chainsaws, and many other related products. They now have pressure washers, riding mowers, fully autonomous robot mowers, and more. Everything is made here in the good ol’ U.S. of A, in Morristown, Tennessee.

They’ve decided to expand their line, using their knowledge of getting the most out of battery-powered technology, into some really exciting products, including bikes, a scooter, a UTV, and even a go-kart! I’m itching to try the go-kart of all of them. All these were teased last fall, but they’ll be available early this year.

They all use existing Greenworks batteries, which are designed to charge quickly, and are fairly inexpensive to buy. This is a good system, but read on and you’ll see how they’re large batteries with low capacity.

Whereas their other tools are made in the U.S., the e-transportation line is manufactured in China and Vietnam. Most bicycles are manufactured in Asia, and there’s nothing wrong with that, there’s a lot of expertise there.


60V Stealth Series Electric Mini-Bike

The first bike is called the 60V Stealth Series Electric Mini-Bike. Very appropriate, since the mini-bikes of the 70s used a lawnmower engine to power them, so why not have an electric motorcycle made by an electric lawnmower company? 


The Stealth Mini-bike comes with two 60V, 8Ah (480Wh) batteries and a dual-port rapid charger that can charge the batteries in 50 minutes or less at 10A. It has a 1000W rear hub drive, and in Eco mode it will go up to 20 mph. In Sport mode it will go up to 25 mph. Not especially quick, and that’s a tiny difference between Edo and Sport modes. They claim the range is up to 20 miles using both batteries, and it has a max rider weight of 220 lbs. Recharge time is 50 minutes.

With the fat, knobby tires it’s made to cruise through farmland, mud, sand, gravel, and more. It has full suspension and hydraulic brakes, as well as anti-skidding 19” all-terrain tires.

  • 25mph top speed
  • up to 20 mile range
  • 50 minute charge time
  • $1499

80V Venture Series 26” Fat Tire Electric Mountain Bike

Next up is the 80V Venture Series 26” Fat Tire Electric Mountain Bike. It’s street-legal, with a 750W rear hub motor, with a 20 mph top speed (class 2, both pedal and throttle assist). The 80V Venture Series is a fat bike, so that means two things. It’s made for all-terrain riding, and it’s bloody heavy. In fact, without the battery inserted, it’s still 77 lbs. Keep that in mind if you’ll be putting it on a bike rack to transport it or if you have to carry it up stairs. 

Speaking of, this bike doesn’t come with a battery. You’ll need an 80V, 4.0A battery to fit the case. The case does offer an IPX4 rating to keep water out if it rains. IPX4 protects from splashing water in any direction, but don’t drop it in a creek. For that, you’d need IPX7 or above.


The great thing about fat bikes is that you can vary the tire pressure depending on the surface you’re riding on. They recommend 5-30 psi, 5 for dry sand and 30 for pavement. It doesn’t have to be smooth pavement, either, the bike has a suspension fork in the front, and a suspension seatpost to take the shock out of bumps and potholes. 

There’s a Shimano 7-speed drivetrain that will definitely help move this beast in any kind of incline/decline. It can handle a rider weight of up to 300 lbs. It has mechanical disc brakes, not hydraulic, which helps keep the cost down. But with this big and heavy of a bike, hydraulic would be better. The brakes do have motor cutoff switches, which means that as soon as you start applying the brakes, the motor’s power is cut to help stop or slow quicker. 

  • 20 mph top speed
  • Up to 22 mile range
  • 40 minute charge time
  • $2099.99

80V Venture Series 20” Fat Tire Electric Utility Bike

For those that like the Super73-style mini-bike, there’s the 80V Venture Series 20” Fat Tire bike

There are two versions of this bike. The bike is the same, one comes with a battery and charger. The other comes with no battery or charger, saving you about $300. Perfect if you already have a Greenworks 80V snow blower, riding lawn mower, push mower, or similar.


Again, it’s a 320Wh battery, very large for what it is, but also very affordable to buy one or two as spares. And, not factoring in shipping costs (there are places you can go to buy these, there’s a dealer locator on their website), the battery costs $229 (but the charger is another $100), vs $300 for the model with the battery and charger so if you already have another tool that uses the same battery, the battery-less model may be a good choice.

  • 20 mph top speed
  • Up to 22 mile range
  • 40 minute charge time
  • $1899.99 or $2199.99

80V Venture Series 27.5” Electric Commuter Bike

The Venture Series commuter bike in this lineup is interesting. It also uses the 80V, 4Ah (320Wh) battery. It has everything you’d expect in a commuter—27.5” wheels, an adjustable suspension fork and suspension seatpost, and a 500W rear hub motor. There are 3 levels of pedal-assist and a 7-speed Shimano shifter. It does have an IPX4 rating, so you’re fine in the rain and through puddles. The 80V Venture Series has a high-intensity LED headlight, good for night rides and daytime visibility. 


It has a torque sensor, so the harder you pedal, the more power the motor puts out, resulting in a very natural feel when pedaling. It also has mechanical disc brakes and a maximum riding load of 300 lbs.

  • 20 mph top speed
  • Up to 22 mile range
  • 40 minute charge time
  • $1899.99

Beyond Bikes

Greenworks makes more than bikes to get you away from the yard work. They also have some fun other stuff with two or four wheels.


24V Stealth Series Electric Scooter

Their Stealth Series electric scooter isn’t too different from others on the market, but it is powered by their 24V batteries. They have over 125 different tools, from lawnmowers to leaf blowers to chainsaws, all of which use their 24V batteries. 


The scooter uses two batteries at once, can handle riders up to 265 lbs, and has a 350W rear hub motor. It can reach a top speed of 18.6 mph, and has a claimed range of 14 miles. The handle folds down to make it compact for carrying or storage. 

  • 18.6 mph top speed
  • Up to 14 mile range
  • 40 minute charge time
  • $649.99

60V Stealth Series All-Terrain 2-seat Electric Youth Go-Kart

The go-kart looks like a riot. It uses two batteries and can go up to 20 miles on a full charge. It’ll go 15 mph in Eco mode and 25 mph in Sport mode. That’s not fast for a car, but when you’re essentially sitting on the ground, it feels pretty quick! It uses two Stealth brushless dual-hub motors that offer 2400W peak output.


It can handle two riders totaling up to 275 lbs. It’s designed not just for pavement, the 16” tires offer good performance on dirt, mud, sand, and gravel. The whole shebang is IPX4 rated, so water and mud won’t damage it. It has a hydraulic front brake and a rear electric brake. It also has a harness for each rider and a full roll cage in case things get really out of hand.

  • 25 mph in Sport mode and 15 mph in Eco
  • Up to 20 mile range with 2 batteries
  • 90 minute charge time
  • $1999.99

60V Stealth Series Electric Utility Task Vehicle (UTV)

Last but not least is their new UTV. It’s built for work, able to haul up to 550 lbs between rider and dump-bed, with a 20-mile range and 15mph top speed. It has a roll cage for safety. The Stealth Series Electric Utility Task Vehicle requires 6 of the 60V batteries to run, they fit in a box under the seat. The batteries and an on-board charger are included. 


Large turf tires offer great traction over rough terrain, and it has 8.5” ground clearance. It has a pair of cup holders that fit most insulated cups. 

  • 15 mph
  • Up to 20 mile range 
  • 550 lb payload
  • $12,999.99

As I said above, the low capacity of the batteries may be a dealbreaker for some. You could always buy spares, they’re not expensive compared to other lithium-ion batteries, and if you already own Greenworks equipment, you’d be set up well to get anything that matches your current tools for batteries. They have a tool on the website to see compatible products. It is U.S.-made, all come with a 1-year warranty on the bike and 4 years on the battery.
