A DC motor can run as a generator, but needs separate control of the field winding to do it properly, which means a separately excited (SepEx) motor instead of the very common series-wound motor.

Series motors can regen too.

Regenerative Braking has been around a very long time.

But the controller looks like its VERY overpriced , I wouldn't pay more than $300 for it.
