Sustainable Electric Motorcycle From Sweden: The CAKE Kalk&

What if you could chase the streets with your bike? A sense of freedom, the wind blowing in your face, and everything around you seems quiet. A bike with features as quietness, reliability and sustainability. A bike with which you can ride on the highway and off-road. The CAKE Kalk& is the bike for everyone.

The CEO of CAKE

The founder and CEO of CAKE, the Swedish manufacturer of electric motorcycles, is Stefan Ytterborn. Ytterborn started this Swedish Company, because of his passion for gravity sports. He wanted to develop high-quality performance products that value respect and sustainability. With a clear view of the future, the development of electric motors was soon taken into account within the company. This is how the story of their latest product begins: The CAKE Kalk&.

The purpose of CAKE

CAKE wants to inspire people, to contribute to a zero-emission society, combining responsibility and excitement. How do they do that? They design a new type of electric bike: optimising the specifics of an electric driven train with an off-road chassis. They build the bikes from scratch: from frame to wheels, to components, everything is designed and produced to achieve the highest level of performance, sustainability and overall quality. The bikes are all beautiful, light and silent. All bikes are engineered to encourage performance, trail/enduro and free riding in the countryside, leaving nothing up to chance.

Why the CAKE Kalk&?

The CAKE Kalk& is the new addition to the Kalk Line by CAKE. Designed for the outback and permitted for your daily commute, Kalk& combines the best of both worlds. The purpose was to build a bike that has the ability and handling to go off-road and then be capable of riding that same bike home on the highway. And that’s what they did. They build a bike with dual usability and making the Kalk& street legal. The bike only weighs 70 kg, with a top speed up to approximately 90 kilometres per hour. The body is made from carbon fibre, a swing arm, and an aluminium extrudes tube profile with linkage. One of the advantages of carbon fibre is that it does not oxidise when it is exposed to water and oxygen. It has a lower density than steel and high tensile strength. This makes the material very suitable for bikes.

When do you use CAKE bikes?

CAKE manufactures bikes that are quiet, with respect for the environment, nature and for clients that share the love for the countryside. CAKE wants its customers to be open to sustainability, respect and be interested in this new development. Besides the love for the countryside, they also look at people who like training and racing more, especially in urban/suburban locations. You have to be able to race with it, but you also have to be ready to go home with it. Through the city or in the countryside. It is a bike for everyone. Even the inexperienced rider can get away with it.

Should you buy it?

The Kalk& seems to be a top model for bikes in the future. The new edition in the Kalk line is one of a kind: new on the market, one that is street legal. A bike that can be used off-road as well as on highways, and is completely electric, so good for the environment. But it comes with a price. The bike is almost 14,000 euros, and if you already want to pre-order it, you pay a fee of 200 euros. So yes, the bike is expensive, but you get a lot in return: he is durable, neat, made of sturdy materials and can be used for several occasions.
