about Kalk&

The focus on developing the Kalk models has been off-road performance and innovation.


As there wasn’t anything off-the shelf to support the new category of Light Electric Off Road Motorbikes (L.E.Os), every single component had to be developed from an empty sheet, to support the intended level of quality and durability:


The suspension is specifically developed, by Öhlins supporting the category of high-performance at minimum weight. Everything from the rims, hubs, stems to the custom Öhlins suspension is engineered and dimensioned, specific for the Kalk and the new category; lightweight electric motorbikes.

The light and snappy ride, with its focus on off and on trail riding, in the outback, means that its main character is about torque and acceleration, while providing a quiet gliding and surfy experience. Thanks to its digital pre setting, serving for 3 different riding modes, it will let anyone fly at their own level.
