Cake, the radical Swedish electric bike manufacturer, have brought their road legal model to the UK. Called the Kalk& (pronounced Kalk And) it builds on the off-road only Kalk with the addition of all the usual road going bumpf. What makes it so good? Well the key to this cake, like all others, is just how light it is.
In fully road legal trim, it weighs just 79kg. Despite this it’s good for 53 miles, can achieve a top speed of 56mph and will recharge from 0-100% in just two and half hours attached to a household plug socket.
Riding it around town is hilarious fun. The power and torque are plenty enough to get something so little moving so quickly, and it’s low weight means you can dart through traffic with wild abandon. You can even ride it on a CBT with L-plates as the electric rules makes it technically A1 compatible. If you’d like to take one for a spin, contact Untitled Motorcycles, London, who very kindly let us test their demo model.
