You were never a fan of short lived trends and gadgets. Instead of spending hours on your phone, you spend most of your time in the family garage in which your grandpa started tinkering on his first scrambler in the 1960s. For you, the air-cooled, one-cyclinder, four-stroke engine in your Honda is still the best there is. But you just can’t fix those leaking gaskets and you start to think… Maybe it is time to take a look around for something new? Enter, FEDDZ, who’s name is an acronym for “Fahre Elektrisch Durch Die Zukunft” (Ride Electrically Through The Future). With that, the E-mobility brand anchors its mission statement in its name. The company has been producing motorised mountain, city and touring bikes since 2012, as well as the E-moped we’re testing here. The E-moped, manufactured for the most part with components from FEDDZ’s local area, represents a future-oriented lifestyle that aims to combine mobility and sustainability. We swapped our bike helmet for a motorbike helmet and rode the € 7,999 E-moped on the streets around Stuttgart.

FEDDZ-E-Moped in detail

Like a conventional moped, the FEDDZ E-moped is constrained by the same legislation. In contrast to the other S-pedelecs in our test, to ride the FEDDZ you need a full-on motorbike helmet and an AM class licence. Only then can you ride the 47 kg E-moped with its maximum permissible weight of 173 kg in good conscience. Before your first ride, you’ll notice the typical motorbike cockpit, which you’ll have to acquaint yourself with first. Instead of cranks and pedals, the moped accelerates by using the throttle under your right hand on the bars. Next to that, you’ll find the controls for the indicators, horn and button to select the drive mode. The ignition and display have been placed centrally on the stem. This, like many other components, such as the fork and brakes, originally come from the mountain bike sector, while the drive system parts are produced by FEDDZ themselves. Lots of cables travel from the cockpit to the frame fairing, more than any other bike, but they are well organised and routed through hoses.

The FEEDZ E-moped offers cafe-racer aesthetics with a surprisingly quiet and uncomplicated means of propulsion.

Like a fully-faired motorbike, the FEDDZ E-moped lets you guess at where the aluminium frame is hidden underneath. The ABS panelling dominates the aesthetic of the moped and lends it an aggressive and sporty look. At the centre of the frame is a custom-fitted leather cargo bag, which can also be used as a shoulder bag. It’s held in place with two buckled straps in the 23 L cargo area and can replace your gym bag or offer enough space for smaller amounts of shopping and a compact laptop. However, the latter should be kept in an additional waterproof case as the zips aren’t waterproof. Underneath, there’s a removable and almost 12 kg heavy battery – it weighs as much as the lightest bike in our group test. Before the FEDDZ can be turned on, the battery always has to be activated first. The daytime running light turns on automatically with it. The stand also has to be folded up as otherwise, the motor won’t start up.

Built on sand
The 47 kg FEDDZ E-moped rests on a stand that isn’t always up to the weight of this machine. FEDDZ, you could happily bring out the big guns here!
Blink blink factor
The LED rear light is well-integrated in the seat. The indicators have been fixed with flexible struts – if you get caught on them, they just move out of the way.
More please?
The MAGURA two-piston brakes with 180 mm rotors gave us pause for thought. Many significantly lighter and slower bikes in the test were fitted with more capable stoppers.
Smooth ride
The suspension consisting of a Manitou fork up front and steel coil shock at the rear was one of the most comfortable in the test. Of course, the inertia of the high sprung mass of the bike helps here.

Smooth as a baby’s bottom
The Schwalbe Crazy Bob semi-slick tire is intended solely for solid ground and it has no place on loose surfaces.
Black heart
The inconspicuous hub motor is where the FEDDZ produces its enormous power.
More than just the electricity bill
The FEDDZ requires a number plate and insurance. Alongside electricity, you’ll have to factor in insurance as part of your running costs.
The seat protrudes
Only in the lowest setting does the seat integrate smoothly with the fairing. Tall riders will have to deal with an unseemly gap between the extended seat and the panelling. Above 1.85 m tall, the riding position on the E-moped ends up quite compact.

The motor concept of the FEDDZ

The heart of this E-moped isn’t inside the frame but the rear hub. The hub motor delivers a nominal 3 kW output, with peaks of up to 4.8 kW. That makes the FEDDZ the most powerful bike in the test. Likewise, the 1,900 Wh battery has the largest capacity in the entire test field. Of course, that makes sense as soon as you become aware of the fact that the moped draws all of its energy from the battery. Rest your feet comfortably on the footrests during your ride and the moped takes over all the work. The motor offers four different modes: mode 1 is push assist which can only be activated at a standstill. Before you use it to get the moped up a flight of steps, make sure you are familiar with how it works in an empty car park. With a hearty twist of the throttle, the moped quickly accelerates to 8 km/h and could easily slip out of your hands. In Eco mode, the maximum torque is limited and the speed reduced to 35 km/h.

Rather than sweating with effort, you’ll be sweating in fear if you give it too much gas out of the corner.

The middle Touring mode makes a compromise between power and efficiency. In the strongest Sport mode, the E-moped accelerates with full force to the 45 km/h limit and will deliver the most fun to experienced riders. However, newbies should also make sure to test it out in a suitably clear area. Thanks to the design of the hub motor, the FEDDZ has an energy recovery mode that is activated automatically when braking to let you win back a few percentage points of charge. All motor data is shown on a large display with predefined rubrics, with all the charm of a Casio watch from the 80s and offering no more functionality than a good speedometer. Underneath the display, there are two large buttons with which you can scroll between readouts like daily distance, total distance or battery range, as well as resetting trip data. The readout can be mirrored on your phone display with the EV Emerge app, but the app provides no other functionality.

FEDDZ E-moped on test

For our commuter bike group test, we had to adapt our route planning for the FEDDZ. With its classification as a moped, routes that take in cycle paths and many forest roads aren’t allowed, nor do the Schwalbe Crazy Bob semi-slick tires deal well with loose surfaces. Nonetheless, this E-moped with its 80 mm Manitou suspension fork, adjustable coil shock at the rear and wide motorbike seat, offers enough comfort to be taken on rougher terrain. The riding position of the FEDDZ is pleasant and as you don’t have to do any pedalling, it’s not very tiring and well-suited to long distances. Size adjustment is made possible by changing the height of the seat. However, if you’re taller than 1.85 m you’ll have to get used to the compact riding position, ending up with bent legs even with the seat fully raised. By contrast, the thought-through motorbike geometry ensures that you can get a foot on the ground easily at traffic lights to avoid the E-moped toppling over when you come to a stop.

Tuning tip: Leather one-piece and helmet in stealth black

Despite the longer routes you’ll have to account for, not being able to take shortcuts on bike paths, you can travel quickly and will usually be first at the destination. Even in comparison to the other S-pedelecs, the FEDDZ plays in a different league thanks to its motor power. It accelerates effortlessly to the 45 km/h limit and can maintain its speed effectively. Solely on inclines above 10% will the speed drop a little for people heavier than 95 kg. If you know what you’re doing, you can have a lot of fun through long corners by leaning into them at speed and accelerating out of them at full throttle. However, that enjoyment loses its shine over bumps: here the bags and stand of the otherwise silent E-moped produce a noisy ride. When braking hard, the soft and indirect front end combined with the comparatively limited grip of the rear wheel result in reduced trust. At low speeds, the long wheelbase of the E-moped limits its manoeuvrability and leads to unusual techniques being employed to get the E-moped into a bike stand.

FEDDZ E-moped conclusion

Motorbike fans who want to cover long distances effortlessly or want to get their kicks from high-speed cornering on asphalt will get an E-moped with a distinct look with the FEDDZ. The cargo bag also makes it suited for the transport of non-bulky items. Tours off marked roads aren’t possible and the E-moped spoils short outings with its awkward handling.
