Here are five reasons why a life lived on two wheels is a good life and why the Maeving RM1 is the perfect companion.
Two-wheeled modes of transport are fast becoming the obvious choice for those living in urban centres. The movement towards cleaner, greener cities has given rise to an exponential increase in their popularity, with push bikes, e-bicycles, e-scooters, and motorcycles beginning to dominate city streets. Yet these options come with limitations – limitations that we knew we could solve. Enter the Maeving RM1: a quality, affordable electric motorcycle with a fully removable battery that you can charge at any regular 3-pin socket.
No more wasting time
The average worker in the UK spends 125 hours a year commuting, a time sacrifice that is not paid for, and often not even acknowledged. Long commutes have been shown to have a directly proportional negative impact on a person’s satisfaction with work and life.
Waiting for stand-still traffic, already jam-packed trains, delayed public transport, or taxis during peak hours: they can all be a thing of the past. As with bicycles and scooters, riding the RM1 enables you to skip to the head of the queues; but with its greater capacity for speed, you’ll easily outstrip other vehicles. It’s also more substantial and more noticeable to other road users, making it a safer option. It’s an extremely light and manoeuvrable motorcycle, and its torque is gentle off the starting block, increasing as you pick up pace to overtake and stream ahead. These features give you maximum control as you weave through traffic.
Don’t let your life be dictated by the restrictions of cars, taxis, and public transport; regain control of your time.
Good Vibes Only
Make moving through the place you call home something that brings you joy. There’s a reason why, like so many people, we are passionate about motorcycling – it’s enormous fun. There really is nothing like zipping through the streets on a machine that responds to every subtle command. Riding the Maeving RM1 is so simple that it can’t be anything but fun. Experience the pleasure of being the master of a feat of exceptional engineering.
Being above ground and out in the open air, you become a part of the city itself. You’re immersed in its views, its people, its quirks, its changes. You have the freedom to decide where you go and when. This allows you to be spontaneous and endlessly curious. Discovering hidden gems down small side streets, and new routes you never knew existed, you can revel in the variety that a place has to offer. Our electric motorcycle enables you to do this with zero emissions.
Reimagine what urban travel means to you. Travelling on two wheels requires focus, encouraging you to be fully present in your surroundings, responding to them moment by moment.
On public transport, your attention is occupied by your phone or other passengers. In a car, you’re pulled towards fiddling with the heating, the sound system, or trying to get ahead in the traffic. Because the Maeving RM1’s removable battery can be charged anywhere, you can forget about range anxiety and searching for charging stations. Whether you're an experienced rider or totally new to motorcycling, the Maeving RM1 is designed for everyone. The Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) is quick ad easy to secure and the bike has no gears: simply twist the throttle and go. Additionally, a no combustion engine means no intrusive noise.
By eliminating all of these distractions, the Maeving RM1 provides you with the space and quiet to travel with mindful awareness. You have time to yourself.
We're passionate about bikers
At Maeving, we love motorcycles, and we love what they have to offer in terms of an improved quality of life. Our focus is therefore on the needs of the rider (in particular, needs specific to travelling in an urban environment). We’re not concerned with unnecessary, showy features or superfluous specs. Unlike most mainstream manufacturers, we prioritse practicality, affordability, and accessibility. That’s why we’ve made the Maeving RM1 easy to charge, simple to operate, light and maneuverable, and, most importantly, a joy to ride.
We know the bliss of moving seamlessly through a city, the feeling of liberation as you travel door-to-door, in charge of your own schedule. It’s our mission to make this available to as many people as possible. With user-friendly features that satisfy the numerous demands of city life, the Maeving RM1 appeals to a uniquely wide range of motorcyclists, from the novice to the experienced.
We know heritage
We believe electric motorcycles should be additive to the world of motorcycling, not a challenge to it. With this vision front of mind, we built the Maeving RM1 to generate a fantastic user experience, whilst retaining all of the classic design cues that make motorcycles so appealing. This currently unmatched marriage of cutting-edge technology and traditional automotive design techniques set it apart from its peers and makes it particularly desirable.
Favouring elegant, clean styling and quality of finish, we make motorcycles that are as beautiful as they are functional. The Maeving RM1 is a celebration of craftsmanship, and we have refined every detail: from the circular LED headlight to the analogue speedometer, from the bar-end mirrors to the clutter-free handlebars, from the pleasing lines of the frame to the carefully proportioned body. Even the battery is a sight to behold, with its brushed aluminum casing, bamboo trim, and smoothly integrated carry-handle.
WE Keep it convenient
With a Maeving, zero emissions doesn’t mean compromising on comfort or ease. In striving to fulfill this mandate, Maeving has achieved a number of “firsts” in the motorcycle industry.
We have developed a Dual Battery Control Module that allows the Maeving RM1 to engage either a single battery, or two batteries running in parallel. The rider has the benefit of choice, either travelling on a single battery, giving them up to 40 miles of range, or using two batteries to double the range to up to 80 miles. We have also developed the first drop-in connector, which connects the batteries automatically when inserted into the Maeving RM1. No hassle from connection cables or fiddly attachments.
One of the key advantages of riding a motorcycle is being able to weave through traffic. Our design optimises for effortless overtaking and skipping to the head of the queue. With one battery fitted, the Maeving RM1 weighs just 111kg, making it agile and manoeuvrable. The simple twist-and-go throttle gives gentle torque off the starting block, allowing for maximum control when moving amongst other vehicles on the road.
FOR PEOPLE, COMMUNITIES AND THE PLANET
We set out to create a transport alternative that would improve the lives of urban commuters, while remaining committed to being part of the solution to the greatest challenge of our lifetime: the climate crisis.
With growth and expansion comes heavier demands on a city’s infrastructure, one of the results of which is traffic congestion. This plight of the modern world increases carbon emissions, air pollution levels, commuting times, road accidents, noise pollution, and emergency response times. In this way, congestion severely compromises the physical and mental wellbeing of individuals and communities, as well as the health of the natural environment of which we are a part.
Two-wheeled transport is a far more efficient use of the space and resources available for urban travel. When more road users choose this option, cities and their citizens become healthier.
If we are to re-define city travel, and set electric motorcycling at its heart, our vehicles need to harmonise with their urban environment, not be at odds with it. We built the Maeving RM1 from the ground up to be beautiful, practical and sustainable. We intend for it to help cities evolve into the beautiful, practical and sustainable spaces that they can and should be.
Petrol price hikes, the expansion of low-emission and pedestrian-only zones, numerous additional charges, and increasingly limited parking make owning and using a car more trouble than it’s worth. Unlike cars, motorcycles are exempt from the congestion charge and almost all parking is free. Because the Maeving RM1 is electric, it’s also exempt from road tax and the ULEZ charge.
To charge our custom Maeving battery from zero to hero takes under four hours, and it costs just 73p - even at current energy prices. On a full charge, you can travel up to 40 miles. The Maeving RM1 can accommodate two batteries, giving you a total of up to 80 miles. Covering the UK’s average commute distance of 11.4 miles per day, will set you back a mere £4.20 per month in battery charging costs. This makes our bike one of the most economical transport options out there, substantially cheaper than travelling by car or public transport.
