An innovative design created for urban spaces.

Swedish motorbike manufacturer Cake produces modern, light, and eco-friendly motorcycles that are as stylish as they are innovative. The company launched its first model in 2018, the Kalk motorcycle that eventually went on to receive prestigious awards like the Red Dot Design Award and the iF Design Award. The Kalk&, Ösa+ and Ösa Lite motorbikes followed, along with Kalk INK which made its debut in March 2020, and the brand’s first racing motorbikes later that same year. Now, the company has revealed its latest innovation: the Cake Makka electric moped series. Specially designed for urban environments, this third Cake platform features state-of-the-art technology and the brand’s signature clean, contemporary design.

The Makka mopeds suit commuting as well as short-haul commercial transportation requirements. Versatile and easy to adapt to different needs, the Cake Makka series comes in eight configurations. Apart from the standard version, the mopeds can also feature passenger or child seats, racks, top boxes, rear large baskets, and more. The ultra-light but powerful mopeds come in two versions, Flex and Range. While the former puts speed first and can reach up to 28 mph, the latter provides more range – up to 35 miles, with a top speed of 15 mph.

Both versions come with a lightweight aluminum frame, motorcycle tires, a touchscreen display, and a rear cargo rack. The 3.6 kW drivetrain comes with a 1.5 kWh battery that takes around two hours to charge up to 80%. Finally, the series aims to be more accessible, as the Makka Range mopeds won’t require a motorcycle license. Manufactured with custom components in the brand’s Stockholm factory, the new series will start shipping in early 2022. Prices for the Cake Makka mopeds start at $3,500, with pre-orders open now for customers in the US and Europe. Photography© Cake.
