CAKE's ösa electric motorcycle doubles as a customizable workbench on wheels

CAKE has launched a new electric motorcycle platform that doubles up as a mobile power station and customizable worktop. known as the cake ösa, the modular design comes with over 1,000 possible combinations to power various on- and off-grid pursuits.

the CAKE ösa comes in two different builds with higher and lower speed/power options. this includes two battery options: either a lean 1.5kwh or a 2.6kwh, the latter offering a range of up to 63 mi (100 km).

 

the CAKE ösa+ uses a 10 kW peak motor, drives a gates carbon belt drive, and features a double crown suspension fork and motorcycle-grade rims. meanwhile, the lower speed cake ösa LITE, which is designed to be registered as a moped, tops out at 30mph.

 

 

what sets the ösa aside from other electric motorcycles is its customizable frame that doubles as a workbench. each model is designed with a custom central spine that uses a locking clamp to attach a wide range of accessories depending on the user’s needs. one or two seats can slide atop the frame, as well as worktops, baskets and racks.

 

 

 

using its battery pack as a mobile power station CAKE imagines an array of different scenarios in which the ösa can be of use: off-road adventures, delivery services, and even using the motorcycle as a base for cooking.

 

users can charger the ösa using standard 110/220 v wall outlets with a full charge from 0-100% taking approximately 3 hours. a small TFT screen at the center of the handlebars display speed and remaining battery power.

 

the CAKE ösa+ will retail in the US for $8,000 and the LITE will retail for $6,000. CAKE will begin making deliveries in the US and EU in late march 2020.
