The 49 other bikes will be shipped during the summer and fall.
Pre order the next generation of Kalk production series, will be available from June 26, 2018.
“The level of precision and detailing is beyond anything I have seen. It’s a gem. I’m leaving town right away to explore the woods on this bike,” says Fredrik Moberg, the first customer.
CAKE, the Swedish manufacturer of lightweight electric off-road performance motorcycles, today announced that the first customer received the first-ever CAKE Kalk Limited Edition bike, 1/50, at 1200 CET by the Stockholm City Hall in Sweden.
“It’s somewhat unreal being at this stage,” says Stefan Ytterborn, founder and CEO of CAKE.
First launched this past January at the Outdoor Retailer Show in Denver, CAKE is a Swedish company with a purpose to inspire people to contribute to speeding up the transition towards sustainability, by enhancing fun and excitement, and developing light, clean and quiet, electric performance off-road motorbikes.
“When I first started riding electric off-road bikes a few years back, I was caught by the qualities and aspects of exploring the backcountry quietly and without pollution. I have been on a mission ever since,” continues Ytterborn.
While announcing its first model, the Kalk, at the Outdoor Retailer Show, CAKE opened up pre-orders for a Limited Edition bike at the same time. Inventory sold out in less than two and a half weeks to customers from 15 countries around the world.
“The highly competent and committed people on our team have worked hard to define this new category, demonstrating what light, clean, and quiet electric performance off-road bikes can be. We turned over every stone until we realized that we had to start from scratch. Everything, besides the chain, foot pegs, rubber handles, and brake levers is uniquely designed and engineered to maximize intended performance.
Stubbornly striving in head wind: Patience, fighting spirit and a great comradery, together with amazing manufacturers, all played different roles in getting here.
Yes!” exclaims Ytterborn.
CAKE will continue to deliver the Limited Edition bikes throughout the summer, leading into manufacturing of the production series Kalk this fall, with deliveries from Christmas onwards.
Pre-order for the production series will open June 26, 2018.
