CAKE Unveils Full Bukk Electric Motorcycle Platform

The Bukk comes in two categories: the Bukk Superlight and the Bukk Powerlight.

Back in November, CAKE, the Swedish maker of premium, lightweight, electric motorcycles, rolled out its newest off-road machine, the Bukk Limited Edition. Only 50 were produced, and they were sold within two weeks. Now, CAKE has unveiled the full Bukk platform, a highly customizable version of the limited edition Bukk electric off-road performance motorcycle that was launched in November last year.

CAKE continues to deliver a category-leading power-to-weight ratio with its electric drivetrain, forged aluminum frame and CAKE designed components; the lightest configuration is 195 pounds. With “Jante,” CAKE’s newly developed internal permanent magnet (IPM) motor maxing at 16 kilowatts, and the quick-swap 72-volt battery, the Bukk delivers 456 newton-meters of instant torque accelerating from 0 to 45 in 2.15 seconds.

Between its distinctive design and its light, but powerful drivetrain, riders of the Bukk can expect unmatched agility, flight and speed in the ambience of nature without polluting their surroundings. The Bukk comes in two
categories: the Bukk Superlight being an A1 (13 kilowatt) and the Bukk Powerlight being an A2 (16 kilowatt). There is also a trio of suspension combos — from Öhlins, WP and Formula — to choose from as well as the choice between pure off-road or street-legal versions.

“With the Bukk platform, CAKE is bringing unmatched, light electric performance to where you want to ride it. Take it on the road to lead you to the trail or the track,” said Stefan Ytterborn, CAKE founder and CEO. “Our goal of pairing responsibility to the environment with designing and manufacturing the highest quality and most innovative electric off-road performance motorcycles is what inspired the Bukk.

“After years of development, we have accomplished the truly most optimized IPM motor with radial flux for efficiency and power. The result is the most advanced air-cooled drivetrain in the industry, providing innovation in performance, low maintenance and user experience, all to maximize performance in light off-road vehicles. The Bukk Limited Edition had an incredible reception and sold out after just a week when it launched, and with this new model, we are continuing to promote the extended life cycles and sustainability of our electric platforms. Like everything we do at CAKE, purpose and inclusion drives us, and the depth of customization offered by the Bukk allows riders to configure it for their own purpose. We learn and develop with each CAKE product, instilling durability in every component to keep them running in peak condition while respecting our environment.”

The Bukk is the latest example of CAKE’s commitment to combine riding pleasure with responsibility in the drive towards a zero-emission society. The Bukk is easily configured pre-purchase via ridecake.com or post-purchase via the CAKE Connect app. In addition, the Bukk is equipped with advanced connectivity features that allow for upgrades for new features and global remote support, making the Bukk an even more versatile and future-proof electric motorcycle. With this technology, the bike can be tracked or even disabled if stolen.

The name Bukk means Thunder Cloud in the ancient language from the island of Gotland, CAKE’s testing ground and inspiration for the naming of all its products. The Bukk is available to order at a starting price of $10,270 from April 25 on ridecake.com.
