(Stockholm, Sweden – December 23, 2019)
CAKE, the Swedish manufacturer of lightweight electric off-road performance motorcycles, today announced that its flagship product, the Kalk OR, has been included in the Petersen Automotive Museum’s permanent collection. In April 2019, the Petersen Museum featured the Kalk OR in its exhibition, Electric Revolution. The Kalk OR now extends its presence by becoming a perennial part of the museum’s collection.
“We are honored and proud to announce that the CAKE Kalk OR is now a part of the permanent collection at the Petersen Automotive Museum. We would like to thank Bryan Stevens and everyone at the museum for recognizing our development of a new category of lightweight electric motorbikes and supporting our vision to accelerate our society toward a zero emission future,” remarks Stefan Ytterborn, Founder of CAKE.
“It’s a spectacular artifact and a fantastic representation of this moment in the history of motorized transport,” adds Bryan Stevens, Director of Exhibitions at the Petersen Automotive Museum.
The Petersen Automotive Museum, one of the world’s largest automotive museums specializing in automobile history, envisions a rapidly evolving, multi-dimensional society in which the museum thrives as a progressive, globally respected center for automotive research and collecting; the focal point for automotive history, culture and enthusiasm in the United States; and a premier educational institution in Los Angeles. The museum’s mission is to explore and present the history of the automobile and its impact on global life and culture using Los Angeles as the prime example.
