CAKE announces first shipments of street-legal bikes | News
CAKE, the Swedish manufacturer of electric off-road motorcycles has announced it is now shipping its road-legal model, the Kalk&, to customers across North America and Europe.
That’s not a typo, CAKE’S road-legal electric bike is called the Kalk& (and). It costs 14,000 EUR or $22,937 AUD, roughly the same price as a new Hyundai i30 Hatch. But hey, that includes free worldwide shipping! CAKE bikes are made to order so a deposit of 200 EUR is required at time of purchase then the remaining 13,800 EUR must be paid before CAKE will ship your bike.
The Kalk& (and) is powered by a 10kW electric motor that’s good for a top speed of 90kmh and a range of 86 kilometres depending on how you ride. Charging from 0-100% takes about 2.5 hours from a standard outlet.
It weighs Dry 62kg + battery 17kg and has a seat height of 910mm. The suspension is an Öhlins developed 38mm fork with 204mm travel and an Öhlins TTX22 shock with CAKE internals with 205mm of travel.
