CAKE’s just launched their next big thing at this year’s EICMA – and considering the brand’s partnership with FIM for sustainable track management via their own units, it makes sense that the company would think….bigger.
By bigger, we mean better (seeing as the two don’t always go hand-in-hand); CAKE’s website tells us that the new series flaunts “increased motor power, optimized cargo possibilities and up to double the battery capacity.”
“It is intended to be an environmentally sustainable alternative to traditional petrol vehicles,” continues DesignBoom’s report.
“The new utility vehicles are specially designed for professional applications such as delivery drivers and craftsmen. this series addresses pollution and traffic, which are common problems of metropolitan areas.”
The series offers three machines to tout about the industry proper: The kalk, the ösa, and the makka.
The Kalk :work
The off-road Service Tool
Purported by DesignBoom to be the favorite of American record producer, rapper, singer and songwriter Pharrell Williams, the Kalk features “an off-road platform, made with light and premium components with the goal of creating the fastest and most efficient bike for remote work missions.”

The Towing Truck
“The Ösa :work is CAKE’s powerful workbench and towing truck on two wheels, with strong hauling power, optimized cargo capacity and increased range to run for longer than ever.”

With the brand claiming in the history books that they’re also gunning to create “EV motocross race series much like the FIA Formula E World Championships”, we’re intrigued to see what the brand is up to next.
