In a recent interview with Stefan Ytterborn, the CEO of Cake Electric Motorcycles told us his bikes are about “inviting new people—outdoor people, mountain bikers, motorbike guys, whoever wants to get out there—to experience something new.” The 2018 Kalk Limited Edition, which is the bike we tested, is the first model in Cake’s lineup and is sold out. However, it’s essentially the same as Cake’s second bike, the Kalk OR, which is a 2019 model and is available for purchase. Cake informed us the only differences between the two are that the Kalk Limited Edition has carbon-fiber bodywork, while the Kalk OR uses injection-molded plastic. The two bikes are essentially identical. Cake brought a 2018 Kalk Limited Edition for us to conduct a one-day test, and we headed to the poppy-filled hills of Southern California to swing our leg over this eBike for the first time.
