A vital component of any eBike is the motor. Both the Juggernaut Ultra Duo 2 and the Bakcou Mule come with a Bafang M620 1000W mid-drive motor, which provides excellent performance. with its combination cadence and torque-sensing pedal assist drive mode.

How about batteries? The Juggernaut Ultra Duo 2 comes out on top with a 52V 17.5Ah 910Wh battery that’s been tested to provide up to 45 miles of range per charge. Combining a range extender battery amplifies the Ultra Duo’s estimated range up to a whopping 90 miles. In comparison, the Bakcou Mule's 840Wh battery offers slightly less power and range. If you’re planning longer rides and reliable power delivery is important to you, the Juggernaut Ultra Duo 2 is the better option.

The Juggernaut Ultra Duo’s step-over frame also has a higher payload capacity of 380 lbs, making it a suitable choice for heavier riders or those carrying or towing cargo. In comparison, the Bakcou Mule has a payload capacity of 300 lbs, which is still a decent capacity but not as high as the Juggernaut Ultra Duo 2.

Heading to the scales, both eBikes weigh in on the heavier side. The Juggernaut Ultra Duo 2 at 75 lbs and the Bakcou Mule at 77 lbs. However, the slight difference in weight is unlikely to have a significant impact on your riding experience. It’s also worth considering that upgrading or adding batteries will increase an eBike’s overall weight (though the additional power capacity usually makes up for it!).

When it comes to customization, the Juggernaut Ultra Duo 2 is available in three frame sizes and two tire sizes while the Bakcou Mule is available in only one frame size and wheelset. Biktrix also offers more additional component options, such as headlight and brake upgrades. If you don’t fit into the “one-size-fits-all” body type, the Juggernaut Ultra Duo 2 may be the better option.

Pros and Cons of the Juggernaut Ultra Duo 2:

Pros:

  • Extended range with 52V 17.5Ah 910Wh battery (up to 90 miles with dual batteries)
  • Higher payload capacity of 380 lbs
  • Available in multiple configurations to suit a variety of riders

Cons:

  • Dual-battery configuration is heavier than a standard battery

(is that even a con? With these specs in mind, it’s a struggle to think of much to include on this list. I suppose one might argue “Juggernaut Ultra Duo 2” is more of a mouthful, but you’re allowed to nickname yours whatever you like)

Pros and Cons of the Bakcou Mule:

Pros:

  • Decent battery life with 48V 17.5Ah 840Wh battery
  • Payload capacity of 300 lbs

Cons:

  • Only available in one frame size
  • Lower range and payload capacity compared to the Juggernaut Ultra Duo 2

Final Recommendation

Both the Juggernaut Ultra Duo 2 and the Bakcou Mule offer excellent features and capabilities, but the Juggernaut Ultra Duo 2 comes out on top in terms of battery and weight capacity. With its smooth and natural ride experience, extended range, and higher payload, the Juggernaut Ultra Duo 2 is the better option for those looking for a high-performance eBike. Therefore, we recommend the Juggernaut Ultra Duo 2 as the better choice between the two models.
