Maeving: The Ideal Second Vehicle

A Maeving electric motorcycle offers freedom, practicality, and joy that a car can't provide.

Maeving: The Ideal Second Vehicle

When considering the myriad of daily journeys we embark on, whether it's a quick trip to the shops, a visit to the gym, or catching up with friends, relying solely on a car might seem convenient. However, when we reflect on the environmental impact of transporting unnecessary weight and the energy loss associated with single occupancy trips, it becomes evident that there's a need for a more practical and sustainable solution. This is where a Maeving comes into play. 

As the ideal second vehicle, Maeving offers a practical and environmentally friendly alternative to cars for independent errands and solo journeys. Let's delve into why a Maeving is the perfect addition to your vehicle collection.


A Maeving electric motorcycle is quiet, unlike a lot of vehicles on our roads, meaning you can soak up all the hustle and bustle and background noise that makes a city feel so alive. You’ll feel more connected to the road than you do in a car, and you’ll notice curious little streets and back alleys you’d never been aware of before. You’re completely free to dart down them and discover your new favourite coffee spot or perhaps a hidden gem of a bar to revisit when you’re not riding.

Riding a Maeving is a wonderful way to fall back in love with the city you live in, making everything feel as fresh as it did when you first arrived.


If you’ve ridden a motorbike in the city before, or even a bicycle for that matter, you’ll be aware that the perception of distance and time changes on two wheels. No longer does a 5-mile journey take 30 minutes, with the majority of it spent in mind numbing slow-moving traffic. Instead, you effortlessly glide past the cars, skipping traffic and cutting your commuting time in half. In fact, most Maeving riders tell us that their city feels as though it has shrunk in size since they started riding.

Being out in the open air on a nimble, lightweight, and narrow vehicle allows you to stay on top of your schedule and save a significant amount of time on the road.


Let’s face it, parking a car in a city is a nightmare. Most of the time, there’s a lack of adequate car parks, and they're usually full. Additionally, the fees, particularly in prime locations, can be exorbitant. On the other hand, being on a motorcycle makes parking effortless. Due to their narrow frame and manoeuvrability, motorcycles significantly increase the number of available spots. Better yet, there are numerous dedicated parking spots for motorcycles, often much cheaper or completely free to use.

Overall, owning a motorcycle completely transforms what it means to navigate urban environments. With the ability to swiftly manoeuvre through traffic and easily find parking, motorcycles offer unparalleled convenience and efficiency for city dwellers. So, next time you're grappling with the frustrations of city parking, consider the freedom and simplicity that comes with being on a Maeving. It might just be the solution you've been looking for.


A study presented at the Association des Constructeurs Européens de Motocycles in 2012 highlighted that a shift to one in ten cars being replaced by motorcycles would reduce emissions by 6%. The majority of this reduction was due to the lack of traffic congestion, as opposed to the type of emissions the vehicles were producing. This is an encouraging statistic, but this study was done before Maeving and electric motorcycles in general really existed on urban roads. Switching to an electric motorcycle is inevitably going to have a far greater positive environmental impact on emissions statistics, as they don’t produce any emissions during travel. 

But why choose an electric motorcycle as opposed to an electric car? Well, electric cars are great for reducing emissions but, the problem is, they don’t solve congestion issues. Electric motorcycles offer a solution to this which, if adoption rates grow, would significantly reduce both congestion and emissions. Adding an electric car to your collection might seem like a smart idea for reducing your carbon footprint. However, if you, like 60% of Britain, make the majority of your journeys independently for less than 10 miles, opting for an electric motorcycle provides a more efficient and practical solution.


We talk a lot about the practicality of a Maeving, as well as the positive environmental impact of riding electric. Yet, what may be even more important for the human soul is the joy of riding a motorcycle.

It’s the freedom to go wherever you like at your own pace, with traffic becoming nothing but seven meaningless letters. It’s rocking up to five-a-side on a motorbike with your boots in your pannier. It’s time all to yourself during which it's almost impossible to be bothered by anybody else; it's meditation and freedom combined.


Owning a Maeving as a second vehicle allows you full independence on the roads. A car is a smart choice for long, cross-country journeys that may involve ferrying several people from A to B. However, a Maeving offers total independence in urban areas. If you need to get somewhere quickly, a Maeving allows you to do so far more reliably than a car. Additionally, if you simply feel like exploring the city in your own unique way and parking just about anywhere while producing zero emissions, a Maeving allows you to do that too.

Maeving is the perfect second vehicle to add to your collection.
