The Maeving RM1’s range is 40 miles per battery. You can fit two batteries in total to the Maeving RM1 to get up to 80 miles of range.

The Maeving RM1’s top speed is 45 miles per hour.

The three ride modes on the Maeving RM1 (Range, Speed and Balanced) allow you to optimise your ride between speed and range.

We would strongly advise against pressure washing your Maeving RM1. A sponge, water and some motorcycle-appropriate cleaning soap will be enough to keep your RM1 looking fresh.

A sponge, water and some motorcycle-appropriate cleaning soap will be enough to keep your RM1 looking fresh.

By a Bosch hub motor

A hub motor means that the power is delivered directly to the rear wheel. No chain, no belt, nothing between the power and the wheel. This provides great torque and immediate power delivery, but also massively simplifies servicing.

Temperature, incline and the weight of the rider all factor into the range that the bike delivers. Adding a second battery doubles your range.

The principle factor affecting the speed of the bike is the ride mode which you select. For example, ‘Speed’ mode will take you all the way up to 45mph, at the expense of range, but ‘Range’ mode limits top speed to 20mph to get you further.

The Maeving RM1 is built right here in the UK, in Coventry to be specific. We’re proud to design and build all our bikes in the UK.

Yes, you can use your Maeving RM1 in the rain just like any other motorcycle.

The Maeving RM1 is designed to hold one rider. If you have a CBT license, you’re only licensed to carry one person anyway!

The space in the storage tank (provided the second battery isn’t in there) is approximately 10L.

There are two reasons why customers may wish to order a restricted power version. The first is in the case that the customer is aged 16. 16 year old customers may ride a Restricted Power version of a Maeving RM1 if they have passed a CBT. The other key reason is if you a) passed your test before 1st February 2001 AND b) do not wish to do a CBT.

Yes, but you will need to return the bike to us so we can make the necessary changes. We need to update three separate pieces of software and then re-register the bike for you under its new power class. Please contact if you would like us to quote you for this service.


Just slot it in. Unlike other manufacturers, we’ve designed the Maeving RM1’s battery to be extremely simple to use – you don’t need to connect a cable once the battery is inserted, you just need to drop it in and the battery will automatically connect.

There are two ways to charge – with the dock, or without. If you’d like to use the dock, you can clip the charging terminal into the dock, drop the battery in, and wait for charging to complete. If you want to use the charger without the dock, you simply attach the charging terminal to the battery. The terminal is angled so that you can store the battery upright  and drop the battery ‘on’ to the charging terminal, even without a dock fitted.

Try and keep your battery as full as possible. Deep-cycling (frequently and consistently taking the battery from 100% to 0%) affects the life of the battery – better to top it up when you can. If you’re not going to be using your battery for a while, store it indoors.

In normal conditions, the Maeving RM1 Battery charges from 0-100% in under 4 hours. To go from 50-100% is 2 hours, and 20-80% is just over 2 hours.


The Maeving RM1 is a British electric motorcycle with removable batteries.

The Maeving RM1 is available only through the website – you’re in the right place.

YES you can buy the Maeving RM1 now by placing a £500 deposit. Just head over to the bike page and select the bike you'd and pay your deposit. The bike page has details of what delivery estimates are currently looking like.


Yes, you need a CBT License.

CBT or Compulsory Basic Training is a one-day course designed for new motorbike riders to learn how to drive a scooter or motorcycle. Once you have completed the course you will receive a license to drive a scooter or motorcycle up to 125cc or 11kw in power (i.e. a Maeving). The license will be valid for two years, at which point you can renew it for another two years or upgrade to a full license.

If you’re 17 or above you’re allowed to ride up to a 125 cc or 11Kw scooter or motorcycle

At 16 you are restricted to riding a 50 cc scooter or motorcycle with a speed restriction of 28 mph

Ride on dual carriageways

Technically you’re allowed to drive a geared bike even if you did your CBT on an automatic bike however this is not recommended.

Drive on motorways

Drive with passengers

Drive without L plates

The correct license card: UK driving, UK provisional or EU licence with UK counterpart

Read a registration plate from 20.5 metres

Speak and understand English, and have an understanding of the Highway code

Ride an adult-sized bicycle

Wear suitable clothing including thick trousers (such as jeans) and leather boots

Have your National Insurance number in case of a license check

Most CBT centres will provide a bike, helmet and other safety equipment – please check this when you book your CBT.

Between £140 – £160 depending on where you book.

Technically you cannot fail a CBT but you can be asked to re-book and come back for further training. This is very rare as the session is meant to be a training day and not a test.

Not yet, however, we will arrange for your Maeving to be ready for you to drive home once you’ve completed your test, if you’re doing a CBT with us.

If you’re London based we recommend booking with Universal Motorcycle Training at the London Motorcycle Centre. Please note when you’re booking we recommend you choose the: Universal Motorcycle Training - AlpertonWembley Location.

Maeving is also offering to complete CBT applications for Universal Motorcycle Training for London customers who have purchased a bike. This will be done directly via email post purchase.


Yes, you need to insure your Maeving RM1 to a minimum cover of 'Third Party' before you can ride it legally on the road.

Vehicle tax

You do need to go through the tax process on after your first year, but the fee due to the taxman will be £0.


Yes, you need to service your Maeving after three months or 600 miles, whichever comes first and then every 12 months or 3000 miles, whichever comes first.

We recommend you buy a Maeving service plan when you purchase your bike. If you choose not to do this, you can either book a service with the Maeving workshop or with one of our Maeving-approved service partners.

The Maeving RM1 is the electric equivalent of a 125cc motorcycle.

In France, you must hold at least a valid Permis A1 lincence to ride the Maeving RM1. Of course, you can ride our motorcycle with a Permis A2 or a full motorcycle licence.

While all Maeving RM1s have space for two batteries, you can choose to buy a bike with only one battery. With one battery, you can travel up to 65 kilomtres. If you add a second battery, you double the range to 130 kilometres. With two batteries, there is also a power increase, from 70 Amps to 100 Amps. 

If you purchase the single battery version and later discover you’d like more range, you can place an order for a second battery. 

If you choose to ride with a single battery, the tank compartment offers approximately 10L of secure storage space. It’s big enough to accommodate a chain lock, a change of shoes or jacket, and a few other small items.

The range of the bike is, of course, dependant on how many batteries are in use. With a single battery, you can travel up to 65 kilometres (130 kilometres with dual batteries). Other factors that affect range include hills, extreme temperatures, wind, the weight of the rider and time spent at top speed vs cruising. 

Similarly, extreme temperatures, wind, incline and rider weight will affect the speed of the Maeving RM1. The motorcycle has 3 Driving Modes: 

-Driving Mode 1 allows you to go top speed (72 km/h) 
-Driving Mode 2 limits you to 45 km/h
-Driving Mode 3 limits you to 32 km/h.  

If you cruise in Driving Mode 2 or 3, you will extend the range of the Maeving RM1.

No, we will provide an adapter when the bike is delivered.

Unfortunately, because the weight of a second passenger significantly impacts the range of a removable battery, the Maeving RM1 can only accommodate a single passenger.

While our team of experienced engineers are constantly working away in the UK, for the time being we are focusing our attention on the Maeving RM1.
