Founders: Seb Inglis-Jones and Will Stirrup
At Maeving we are driven by two things: the desire to make the best electric motorcycles possible, and the belief that this is most readily achieved by harnessing Britain’s heritage in motorcycle engineering.
Our product team earned their stripes among the ranks of the great British motorcycle manufacturers and, with over a century of experience between them, have been responsible for some of the most revered bikes on the road today.
Add to that a determination to do right by the planet by drawing more riders on to zero-emission transport, and a move away from motorcycle dealerships towards doorstep delivery and servicing, and you have a movement that can be summed up by one word: progress.
Maeving was co-founded by Seb Inglis-Jones and Will Stirrup. The pair met while studying at Durham University, quickly becoming good friends with a shared interest in entrepreneurship. Inglis-Jones and Stirrup were passionate about starting a business which would be committed to being part of the solution to the greatest challenge of our lifetime: the climate crisis. And, with a love for motorcycles and a belief that the future of urban travel is on two wheels, the pair founded Maeving in 2018.
On April 20th 2022, the Maeving RM1 was launched. A beautiful, ‘old-meets-new’ motorcycle that has the appearance of a mid-twentieth century British Cafe racer, and the power of tomorrow. The Maeving RM1 features two fully removable batteries that can be charged from any 3-pin socket – just like your phone or laptop. This takes range anxiety and meticulous planning for charging stations out of the question. The bike is built to impeccable standards in Coventry, UK. For the uninitiated, Coventry, and the Midlands more generally, is the beating heart of the British motorcycle industry.
Since its launch, the Maeving RM1 has been the number one selling electric motorcycle in the UK, according to MCIA registration data. We’re incredibly proud of this, and are thrilled to be a core part of the resurgence of the British motorcycling industry.
The road ahead looks good on a Maeving.
