Maeving electric motorcycle:
No gears. No petrol. No smell. No noise.

The brief

Seb and Will came to us with a very simple brief. They wanted a retro style electric motor bike for urban living. The bike needed a top speed of 45- 50mph, could go 50 miles without recharging, and have a removable battery to recharge at work or at home. A designers dream. We probed as to why a start-up idea like this would have traction and where is the USP. They showed the comparison of sales of electric bikes across Europe and it was clear that the UK was far behind the curve. This was a growing market and we were convinced as they were that if we could produce a works like looks like prototype- they would get funding.  

The bang

To begin with, this was a straight industrial design project. We produced several sketches and ideas for sign off, and then went straight into welding together a rolling rig. Even sitting on this bent tube assembly, you could feel the riding position. Once everyone was happy the pivotable point in the project was when we had a working looks like prototype we could ride. The prototype was a mixture of welded assemblies, off the shelf parts and the main housings being 3D printed and CNC. It took a few months in the middle of Covid 2020 for Seb and Will to secure funding and we then worked with their excellent engineering team to take the product into manufacture. 

The result

Seb Inglis-Jones Co-Founder Maeving bikes. 

We are really pleased for our clients who in two years took an idea to market and have a successful business employing a team manufacturing in the UK. This project epitomises our B Corp mission; to design products that are commercially viable, whilst being technically feasible and socially and environmentally responsible. 

‘If it were not for Bang Creations’ agile way of working and lean company structure we would have been unlikely to get the project of the ground; insofar as Bang’s investment in us, and the speed of delivery, could not have been matched by the two automotive design giants we were courting simultaneously - and the quality of engineering could not have been matched by a custom bike designer/builder; given their lack of DFA/DFM consideration.’
