The first production Ösa motorbikes now delivering to customers in the United States
(Stockholm, Sweden – April 30, 2020) – CAKE, the Swedish manufacturer of lightweight electric off-road performance motorcycles, today announced the delivery of the first production series of its utility motorbike platform, Ösa. Delivery has started in the United States with Europe, Asia-Pacific, and other global markets starting deliver in the coming weeks.
“We are thrilled to announce that the Ösa platform is now ready for delivery to riders here in the US and, within just a few weeks, around the world,” remarked CAKE Brand Manager, Zach Clayton. “Whether it’s a restaurant delivery service doing neighborhood deliveries or a surfer looking for a low-impact way to get to the beach with their board, the Ösa models provide so many ways for people to expand enterprise opportunities and exploration.”
CAKE’s motorcycles are built with a purpose to inspire people to contribute to speeding up the journey towards a zero-emission society by combining excitement and responsibility. Apart from being a light, clean, and quiet electric motorcycle, the Ösa is derived from the diversity of work and differentiated needs of the customer. What to bring and what to carry varies greatly between the office worker and the craftsman, and the roads toward the destination include highways and trails and everything in between. As a result, CAKE’s solution was to build an electric and modular utility commuter vehicle that serves a wider range of riders with off-road capabilities.
“We’ve been anxiously awaiting the Ösa to hit the streets and we’re pleased to say we’re right on target. Our ambition has been to create a motorbike that would serve as a powerful utility, transportation, and exploration tool—a tool that not only carries an abundance of gear, but also serves as a mobile workshop and a rolling power station,” remarked Stefan Ytterborn, founder of CAKE. “So, aside from serving the need for clean and efficient urban commuting or last-mile delivery use, for most people Ösa will allow them to have off-the-grid cinema nights in the woods, backcountry live gigs, dinner parties along at the beach. Whatever comes to mind and wherever, the access to power can bring traditional pursuits to new, virgin places and create entirely new experiences.”
Heavily influenced by the workbench, the Ösa design features a large gray bar extending out from underneath the seat. This uni-bar, modular, clamp-on system serves as the heart of the Ösa, allowing users to attach baskets, bags, tools, and more to create over 1,000 different possible configurations. It also features a powerful battery with multiple outlets, meaning the Ösa doubles as a power station on wheels, enabling the rider to be completely independent, off-the-grid.
The Ösa Lite, the scooter model, has a top speed of 30 mph and starts at $6,500 USD, while the Ösa+, the motorcycle model, boasts a top speed of 60mph+ starts at $8,500 USD. Both are available for order worldwide on ridecake.com.
CAKE is a Swedish company with a clear mission to contribute to speeding up the transition towards a zero-emission society, by combining excitement and responsibility in its development of light, quiet, and clean high performance electric off-road motorcycles. Its first model, the Kalk, debuted at Denver’s OR and Munich’s ISPO shows in January 2018, and has received numerous accolades, including the 2019 and 2020 Red Dot Design Award and “Best in Show” designation by several outdoor industry publications. In 2019, CAKE launched the Kalk&, a street-legal motorcycle as well as Ösa+ and Ösa Lite, a utility platform with an integrated power station and off-road capabilities. Kalk INK debuted in March 2020 with the street-legal Kalk INK SL entering the line in April 2020.
