Cake, the Swedish manufacturer of lightweight electric off-road performance motorcycles, today announced that Alex Bogusky, co-founder and Chief Creative Engineer at Crispin Porter + Bogusky, is the first customer in North America to receive the Cake Kalk Limited Edition bike.

Built with a purpose to inspire people to contribute to speeding up the journey towards a zero emission society by combining excitement and responsibility, the all-electric high-performance off-road motorbike brand is designed for exploration and discovery. First launched this past January at the Outdoor Retailer Show in Denver, the first model – the Kalk – was recognized as “Best in Show” by several outdoor industry publications and has received numerous accolades since. With a focus on design, performance and innovation, every single component of the Kalk had to be custom built, resulting in numerous patents pending. The CAKE Kalk proves electric vehicles can still be aesthetically pleasing while being eco-friendly.

The Cake Kalk bike, built for light off-road performance, uses an industrial standard IPM motor, customized for Cake and made in Europe. It’s a 15 kW mid motor, powered by a 51.8 Volt, 50Ah battery for torque and range, conducted by specifically developed and tuned software, for the controller and dynamic performance. With the intention of simplicity, promoting easiness in terms of riding as well as maintenance, it’s a light bike weighing in at sub 70 kilos, using a single pivot direct drive, reducing the number of heavy and moving parts.
