Swedish manufacturer of electric motorcycles Cake introduced a new model Cake Kalk INK. Based on the same technology as the Kalk OR (Cake’s legendary electric dirt bike), the new model is a specially prepared all-terrain motorcycle that stands out for its relatively low price.
The Cake Kalk INK comes equipped with an 11 kW motor producing 42 Nm peak torque on shaft / 280 Nm of torque at the wheel at 3,000 rpm that offers a top speed of over 80 km/h (50 mph). The model offers 3 hours of continuous field entertainment between charges with its 2.6 kWh removable battery pack, of course, depending on rider style. 0-80% takes 1.5 hours to charge in a standard outlet, while the 100% charging takes around 2.5 hours.
Besides, the e-motorcycle offers three riding modes. The Explore mode limits the bike speed to 45 km/h, which enables the battery range of over four hours. Then the second, Excite mode mostly for Enduro or active trail riding, provides the riders 1-2 hours of riding time between charges. And the last, Excel mode opens the door to the motorcycle’s maximal torque and speed while limiting the riding time up to 1 hour. The electric dirt bike is a lighter option than many others with its weight of 55 kg (121 lbs) + battery 17 kg (37 lbs).
The body, which is made of aluminum, is highly resistant to impacts and sits on 19-inch off-road tires. Additionally, it comes with the 80-tooth rear sprocket, non-linkage rear suspension with 205 mm of travel, and upside down MX spring forks with 200 mm of travel and has the ground clearance of 300 mm.
Importantly, the use of less high-end components allowing its price to drop to $9,500, or $4,500 less than the Kalk OR, whose sale price starts from $13,000. It is already possible to pre-order the model on the manufacturer’s website for the first payment of $200, with the worldwide deliveries starts from June 1st and onwards.
