CAKE, the Swedish manufacturer of lightweight electric off-road performance motorcycles, today announced that Alex Bogusky, co-founder and Chief Creative Engineer at Crispin Porter + Bogusky, is the first customer in North America to receive the CAKE Kalk Limited Edition bike. The bike was delivered Thursday morning at the Crispin Porter + Bogusky offices in Boulder, Colorado.
“Total game changer. I’ve been drooling over these ultra-lightweight electric off-road bikes from CAKE since I first spotted them at the Outdoor Retailer Show, earlier this year. I had to have one and now I’m proud to have the first Limited Edition CAKE Kalk on US soil. Amazing performance, light, quiet, clean, easy to ride, and no tinkering. This will disrupt the industry and bring entirely new people into the market. Can’t wait to get out,” exclaimed Bogusky.
While announcing its first model, the Kalk, CAKE opened up pre-orders for a Limited Edition bike at the same time. Inventory sold out in less than two and a half weeks to customers from 15 countries around the world.
“It’s somewhat unreal being at this stage,” says Stefan Ytterborn, founder and CEO of CAKE. “To have these motorbikes in the hands of customers is a stage we’re all proud to be at. Our next important step is to continue deliveries in both the U.S. and around the world.”
CAKE will continue to deliver the Limited Edition bikes throughout the fall, leading into deliveries of the production series Kalk this January. The Kalk costs $13,000 USD, and is now available now for order on ridecake.com with a deposit of $1,000 USD.
