limited to just 50 editions, the cake ‘KALK’ motorcycle races on to the off-road scene with an all-mastering, all-electrified performance. it is powered by a 15 kW mid-motor and 1.8 volt, 50 Ah battery that propels it to a top speed of 50 mph, while travelling up to 50 miles on a single charge. whether on dirt or snow, the two-wheeler truly showcases its combined focus on off-road performance and innovation.

with orders set to be delivered in june 2018, each cake ‘KALK’ motorcycle will be numbered and signed to mark its exclusiveness. this is no wonder though, as nearly every single component had to be developed from scratch in order to meet its intended level of quality and durability. claiming to have such an advanced design that the bike defines a new category, much of its engineering – axles, hubs, rims, cockpit and suspension – have led to numerous patent requests. these unique features include an array of CNC-machined alloy parts, together with ultra lightweight and strong carbon fiber components.

  • Very nice — efficient simplicity. (belt rather than chain tho’)

  • “Limited edition cake KALK motorcycle is an electrified off-road conquerer”, so far the above stated headline…
    Should this subliminally gesture to the conclusion, that mere shift from one energy to another one, from oil to electro-driven is the single and only horizont for sustainability? This looks doubtful, therefore the question for the author of such a tempting headline is following: The whole complex of impacts of “leisure activities” such as motorized off-road biking is fully negligible, e. g. erosion of land-covering surfaces, soil erosion and the subsequent phenomena are mere externalities, when compared with a joy of the two wheeled motorized sport-folks…
