Source: CAKE | CAKE launches the Bukk platform, a customizable version of the Limited Edition Bukk electric off-road machine that was initially released in November of 2022. It provides a interesting power-to-weight ratio with its electric drivetrain, solid aluminum frame and custom CAKE components; it is the lightest at 89 kilos/195 lbs. The newest “Jante” IPM (Internal Permanent Magnet) motor has a peak capability of 16 kW, and the quick swap 72V battery produces 456 Nm of torque for instant acceleration from 0-45 km/h in 2.15 seconds.
The Bukk’s design and drivetrain give riders the perfect fusion of speed and agility without compromising their environment. The Bukk is available with two power levels, Superlight (13kW) and Powerlight (16kW), as well as three different suspension sets from Öhlins, WP and Formula. Riders can choose between a purely off-road version or one that is street legal.
“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,” says Stefan Ytterborn, Founder and CEO of CAKE.
“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 (interior permanent magnet) 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 customisation 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.” continues Ytterborn.
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.
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$ / 10,270€ from April 25th on ridecake.com
