The Fat tire ebike category is loaded with many great ebikes, some of which we’ve covered and reviewed including the Rad Power Bikes RadRover 6 Plus, Magicycle and Ariel Rider Kepler. One of our favorite fat tire ebikes to date has been the Aventon Aventure and today Aventon made an exciting announcement with the release of an updated version of the Aventure, the Aventure.2. Below are the full spec of this exciting new fat ebike. We’ve also made note of the five major upgrades between the Aventure and the new Aventure.2.
Our own Aventure.2 is in transit and as soon as we can test ride it we’ll be publishing a thorough review. Please subscribe to our Top5ebikes Youtube channel to keep tabs on Aventon Aventure.2 updates and to receive awesome ebike content all year round.

The updated version of the Aventure comes with many of the features we loved about the original version like a 750w motor, hydraulic brakes and 4” fat tires. Not to mention a beautiful design. Well one of the best fat tire ebikes we’ve ever reviewed just got a lot better and here’s why!
The 5 upgrades we love
- Torque sensor
- The older version of the Aventure comes equipped with a cadence sensor which is industry standard. However the more advanced torque sensor allows for a more natural ride since it’s measuring the force of your pedaling rather than just movement like with a cadence sensor. The motor boost is instant with a torque sensor and riders will be able to feel the difference right away. In our opinion this upgrade is the main reason you should consider buying the Aventure.2
- Includes rear rack & fenders
- In our reviews of the old Aventure, one of the negatives we pointed out was that a rear rack was not included. It seemed like a minor item that Aventon could have easily added- riders end up purchasing a rack, pushing additional cost on consumers. We’re happy to see Aventon reacting to consumer feedback by including the rear rack this time around.
- Two rear brake lights
- One of the other negatives we pointed out for the Aventure, which Aventon updated with other newer models like the Pace 350/500 Next Gen & Level.2, was only having one rear light. The Aventure.2 corrects this minor issue, significantly increasing night time visibility, by adding a second rear light. Kudos to Aventon for enhancing rider safety with this update.
- Turn signals
- The old Aventure did not include turn signals so this was another addition to this new ebike, and a welcome one. We haven’t had the opportunity to test this yet for ourselves but look forward to seeing how this new feature works.
- New Color options
- The original Aventure is beautiful and we loved those color schmes. The Aventure.2 has added vibrant NEW colors like cobalt blue and slate grey, in addition to the camouflage and black options available with the previous Aventure.
If you’re still interested in the original Aventure, which comes with a cadence sensor and many other impressive features, Aventon reduced the price of this older model to $1499. That’s an amazing value for an ebike of this caliber!
