The demand for e-bikes continues to boom worldwide, as does the popularity of the MAGiCYCLE brand. There’s a lot to love about MAGiCYCLE e-bikes, but a model accommodating shorter riders has been absent. Enter the Ocelot Pro Cruiser!
What in the world is an ocelot, anyway? This gorgeous medium-sized e-bike is named after a gorgeous medium-sized wildcat…the ocelot. This wildcat is found in the US, Mexico, Belize, and a very few other countries. Its name is derived from an ancient Aztec word that literally means “field tiger.” Powerful, graceful, and beautiful, the ocelot is the perfect namesake for this new MAGiCYCLE.
Getting to Know the Ocelot Pro Long-Range Cruiser
The first thing to strike the eye is the new size. For the first time, MAGiCYCLE has a medium-size ride with 20″ fat tires, and it is a beauty!
Beauty is More than Skin Deep
Once you get past the great looks of this new machine, there’s even more to admire. Let’s do a little digging and see what’s different about this MAGiCYCLE beyond the new 20″ tire size.
Power to Spare
This beautiful new MAGiCYCLE Cruiser is definitely smaller in size, but not in power! The 1100 watt (peak) motor is a bit different than its predecessor. It is still the same reliable brand name motor, but it has been tweaked just enough to increase the torque by about 12 percent. Now rated at 96 nm (Neuton Meters), its torque is equal to that of an average 800 cc motorcycle. You’ll never have to worry about moving quickly across a crowded intersection. With this kind of torque, you’ll conquer even the steep hills.
Most riders will find this e-bike very comfortable to mount and ride. The Ocelot Pro accommodates riders from 4’10” to 6’2″ easily. The frame is based on the Comfort Triangle design from the MAGiCycle Design Team. Best of all for ease and convenience, the step-thru point is only 15″ above the ground. Also, the 20″ fat tires and adjustable front fork will absorb the bumps to add to your riding comfort.
Upgraded Long-Range Battery
You might think the MAGiCYCLE Design Team would simply carry over the fabulous 52 volt battery from the original cruisers. No–they have opted for a freshly designed battery to give riders even more range. Even after upping the amp hours from 15 to 20, the new battery is beautifully integrated into the frame. The 25% boost in amps means you can look forward to a range of 75-80 miles. Of course, if you tip the scales at 275 pounds and ride mostly in hilly terrain, that will reduce your range. Here’s a look at that integrated battery:
Remember all that extra hill-climbing power for the Ocelot Pro? It also has enhanced braking to get safely down the other side of those steep hills. This new mid-size cruiser comes with brand name Tektro 180mm Hydraulic Disc Brakes as standard equipment. Heat resistant and long-lasting, riders feel safe and in full control with this kind of stopping power at their fingertips.

Magicycle is not a normal e-bike company. Magicycle is one of the very few elite e-bike companies that own the factory where their e-bikes are manufactured. The MAGiCYCLE factory has been producing quality e-bikes for more than 16 years. Every Magicycle begins with the award-winning Magicycle Design Team. That’s the same team that, originated the amazing Magicycle frame design. This design makes their e-bikes both visually appealing and reliably strong.
You will never find any cheap steel in a Magicycle frame. Magicycle has chosen to use 6061 aluminum alloy. This top quality alloy provides exceptional strength, corrosion resistance, light weight, durability, and a defect-free highly pleasing appearance. All this is made possible by employing technology borrowed from the aviation industry.
The Magicycle factory uses experts in hydroforming and cataphracted weld joints…regarded as the best welding technique in the world. This means that Magicycle customers receive a high-tech frame that is strong, safe, and beautiful for unequaled riding stability and comfort.
To summarize, Magicycle has exemplary quality control over the entire bike-building process, from design to manufacture to shipping. When a Magicycle is delivered to a new owner, the box contains an e-bike that will last a very long time, giving reliable service and a safe riding experience. Quality matters — don’t buy your e-bike from a brand that does not own the factory.
E -bike Components
Because they control every aspect of design and manufacturing, Magicycle gets to very carefully select the components. Only well-known brand names are invited to supply motors, batteries, LCD displays, brakes, etc. For example, an unusually powerful 52 volt battery comes on every Magicycle. Only high-quality components go onto a Magicycle! That’s a big factor in the confidence Magicycle owners have in their e-bike.
Of course, the motor is a major component on any e-bike. Again, Magicycle selects a name brand manufacturer with a reputation for quality motors…long-lasting powerful motors with CE, ISO9000, ROHS and 3C certification. In fact, the Magicycle motor from Shengyi yields more torque than any other e-bike brand competing with Magicycle. That’s why Magicycle riders get faster starts for added safety in city traffic conditions. That’s also why the Magicycle Cruiser has such amazing hill-climbing strength.
Another important component is the LCD display, providing all the information you need to safely enjoy your ride. Many brands like to “go cheap” with their display, but not Magicycle. The Magicycle display is in easy-to-read full color (not grayscale), has a very bright screen, and many features that are customizable to the individual rider. That same quality is consistent throughout the entire list of e-bike components. The best quality at the best price is a Magicycle priority.
The Ocelot Pro is backed by the industry-leading 2-year warranty from MAGiCYCLE. Added to this exceptional warranty is the 15-day return policy for all e-bikes from MAGiCYCLE. This powerful new e-bike is expected to ship in September, so now is the time to get in line.
