CAKE launches the Production Series of its Light, Quiet and Clean Electric Off-Road Motorbikes.
Zero emission, lightweight and quiet, the CAKE Kalk is now available for pre-order.
CAKE, the Swedish manufacturer of lightweight electric off-road performance motorcycles, today announced pre-order is now available for the production series of its first model, Kalk, after delivering the first of the Limited Edition series just last week.
Built with a purpose to inspire people to contribute to speeding up the transition towards sustainability by enhancing fun and excitement, the all-electric high-performance off-road motorcycle is designed for exploration and discovery, allowing riders to travel as far as 50 miles, and as fast as 50 miles per hour, with the single charge of its battery. First launched this past January at the Outdoor Retailer Show in Denver, the Kalk was recognized as “Best in Show” by several outdoor industry publications.
“When I first started riding electric off-road bikes a few years back, I was caught by the qualities and aspects of exploring the backcountry quietly and without pollution. I have been on a mission ever since,” says Stefan Ytterborn, founder and CEO of CAKE. ”With a clear mission to contribute speeding up the transition towards a zero emission society, CAKE aims to turn the motorized two-wheeled future upside down.”
In April, CAKE announced its partnership with Swedish all-green electricity provider Utellus to create solar installations specifically designed to charge CAKE’s electric motorcycles, known as the CAKE Solar Power Charging System. By May, CAKE was honored to receive Teknikföretagen’s Grand Award of Design, a prestigious award created to draw attention to commercial successes that have been facilitated by integrated and consistent design efforts.
“It’s somewhat unreal being at this stage,” continues Ytterborn. “The highly competent and committed people on our team have worked hard to define this new category, demonstrating what light, clean, and quiet electric performance off-road bikes can be. To see the response we’ve gotten so far, and to have the Production series available for pre-order is an amazing feeling.”
The Kalk costs $13,000 USD, and is now available now for pre-order on ridecake.com with a deposit of $1,000 USD. Bikes will be delivered from Christmas onwards.
