The Swedish maker of premium lightweight electric motorcycles has announced the newest addition the Åik. The Åik is the utility choice for the demands of working professionals who rely on two-wheeled transportation for their livelihood or indeed for the demanding lifestyle requirements of individuals. It is a utility tool that redefines the category with an unsurpassed range and power of up to 224 miles and gross vehicle weight of 200 kg. Like the Ösa, Åik is designed around a modular aluminium frame so customers can outfit the Åik with the right types of racks, bags, trailers, baskets, passenger seats, and more to suit the job at hand.Like all CAKE names derive from the island of Gotland, the Åik comes from the local ancient language “Gutniska” and means ’big and heavy load’ referring to Åik’s hundreds of utility combinations to pull, stow and carry heavy loads.By creating a transportation solution that does not require any special license to operate, CAKE has filled a gap in the :work series. The newest member of the :work family blurs the lines between lightweight electric motorcycle and utility e-bike. For those who typically rely on motorized transportation, it opens up networks of bike lanes and paths that are off limits to motorcycles and cars. It’s also indisputably easier to find a spot to park a bicycle than it is a motor vehicle.In designing this bike, CAKE took its expertise from manufacturing high-performance electric motorcycles and applied it to e-bikes. The result is a robust bike that’s ready for the demands of commercial fleet use and everyday commuting alike.The key feature of the Åik is its battery, or batteries. One of the 750 Wh batteries can power the bike for up to 74.5 miles, but users can connect as many as three batteries to extend the range to cover more miles than most want to ride in a single day. The batteries can also power electronic devices such as temperature-controlled food boxes, electronic tools, and equipment.
