Light, quiet and clean - CAKE bikes put to the test

During the Micromobility Expo in Hannover the other week, we were able to test-ride varous models of CAKE’s electric two-wheelers. CAKE is a Swedish electric motorbike company that was founded in the year 2016 and is headquartered in Stockholm. Their mission is to develop high-quality, sustainable electric motorcycles that will inspire towards a zero-emission society.

CAKE bikes: e-mobility with awards

Just a few weeks ago the Swedish mobility company announced that it had received three awards at this year’s German Innovation Awards. Here products and solutions are honoured that distinguish themselves primarily by their user centricity and added value. And the Swedish company won three prizes for the electric vehicles. The electric anti-poaching motorcycle CAKE Kalk AP received a prestigious Gold, with the electric urban commuter CAKE Makka and the innovative food delivery solution Ösa x Dometic Delibox receiving additional praise from the German Design Council.

But these German Innovations Awards weren’t the only awards, as in recent years accolades included the 2019 and 2020 Red Dot Design Award, IF Design Award, Automotive Brand Contest Award and several “Best in Show” designations awarded by numerous outdoor industry publications. In May CAKE made the cover of MOTION Magazine with an inspiring project of anti-poaching with its silent motorbikes in Africa.

Light, quiet and clean to a zero-emission society

CAKE’s CEO and Founder Stefan Ytterborn told me in a recent talk about his mission for his mobility startup: “From the very start the goal was to create electric motorcycles that would combine excitement with responsibility, while inspiring the shift to a zero-emission society.”

Light, quiet and clean are the main trademarks for CAKE’s bikes today and our test rides showed exactly that. Very easy to handle and with an excellent acceleration – these bikes clearly represent the future of bike riding with a new look and a sustainable solution under the seat. This is how electric driving wins over the hearts of global bike riders.
