THE name may not be familiar, but the styling of the bike is eerily reminiscent – to those of a certain age. The Meaving RM1 is a classically styled retro that is going to arrive in two versions.
Available in two versions – when it hits the market – riders can either opt for 30mph or 45mph versions. While both aren’t really fit for the dual-carriageway, the RM1 is being touted as the perfect bike for cool kids to buzz around the city.
The bike is powered by a Samsung battery pack that weighs in at about 11kg and Meaving is quoting a range of around 40-miles, although that’s heavily dependant on the riding style employed! For those looking for a quicker turn-around when it comes to recharging, the firm is offering early adopters the chance to bag a second battery for the bike at the price of £995, a saving of around £100 over its usual retail price.
With one battery included, the Meaving RM1 is being reported to be retailing for £4,995 and includes free delivery in the UK by a trained technician to help talk you through the finer details of the bike.
The description of the bike on the Meaving website states:
Engineered by a team responsible for some of Britain’s greatest motorcycles, the Maeving RM1 has been designed for urban travel. It’s hand-built in Coventry and uses a next-generation powertrain developed in collaboration with Bosch.
It is lightweight, manoeuvrable, and is powered by removable batteries that can be charged at any plug socket.
