Maeving electric motorcycles offer antidote to Blue Monday misery

British motorcycle company Maeving has been selling bikes for just over a year with the brand-new, zero-emissions, near-silent, British-built Maeving RM1 model. With plenty of evidence linking motorcycles with improved mental health, Maeving is out to demonstrate that on January 16, which is known as Blue Monday, the ‘most miserable day of the year’.

January 16, 2023, has been pinpointed as the most miserable day of the year and dubbed Blue Monday thanks to a combination of post-Christmas blues and a long wait until the next payday for most people. Thanks to a long-running series of train strikes and winter illnesses, it’s been a tough time for commuters and workers.

As an antidote to that, Maeving is aiming to cheer up the capital and demonstrate the positive impact motorcycles can have on mental health, with a fleet of eight electric Maeving RM1s specially wrapped for Blue Monday in a bright blue colour scheme.

All eight riders will be decked out in head-to-toe bright blue riding gear. Maeving is aiming to bring a bright look to the streets of London and they’d love to be able with chat to you about the day as they spread a cheer around London.

One of the two founders of Maeving will be on hand to chat about what Maeving has to offer in terms of zero emissions and near-silent running for urban commuters. This is especially pertinent for those who have been with battling train strikes and other travel disruptions in recent months. 

Despite the tough economic times, Maeving is a British engineering and design success story. The company has a factory in Coventry that builds the bikes that have already become one of the UK’s best-selling electric bikes in class.

Removable batteries that can be charged at any UK three-pin plug allow the Maeving RM1 to work for those people who have no garage and no on-street parking. Just take the battery out and charge it at home or the office. 

The Maeving RM1 has a top speed of 45mph (72kph) and a range of 80 miles (129km). This makes it ideal for many urban commuters. What we love beyond this is just how good this modern classic bike looks. 

With a starting price of £5995, the Maeving RM1 is affordable for many and with finance available from £168 per month with just a £500 deposit. A Maeving could make for a more affordable alternative to public transport in many circumstances.
