Swedish e-motorcycle manufacturer Cake have released their limited-edition trail and track focused Bukk producing over 300lbft of claimed rear-wheel torque.

Named using the ancient language of Sweden’s largest island, Gotland, the Bukk translates as Thunder Cloud and certainly packs a punch.

Weighing just 85kg the bike can reach speeds over 62mph thanks to its 16kW motor, powered by a 72v lithium-ion battery transferred through and all new drive train. Both are seated in a newly designed aluminium frame.

A 19-inch front and 18-inch rear aluminium wheel complete the rider to ground transition booted with 70/100-19 mx and 3.00-18 mx tyres respectively.
