Thanks to an extensive range of accessories and configurations, CAKE is addressing a wide matrix of users and applications, including commercial use for last-mile delivery and other short-haul urban transportation. Along with numerous awards and recognitions for its design and innovative approach to mobility and other societal challenges, CAKE was identified as one of the world’s most innovative companies by Fast Company in both 2020 and 2021 and received the Time Magazine 100 most important inventions award in 2021.
CAKE’s mission is to speed up the journey towards a zero emission society, while enhancing excitement and fun.
Moving away from fossil energy to start using cleaner technologies, the transition to a zero emission society is necessary.
The global motorcycle industry produces a rough 135 million vehicles every year. Most of these run on combustion engines, leaving an ugly carbon footprint every time they are in use. This is the primary reason behind CAKE – a technology company that develops high performance off-road motorcycles that run on electricity.
