Swedish motorbike company CAKE has launched Ösa, an electric utility motorcycle with off-road capabilities and a uni-bar extending from the back of the bike. The company offers a modular clamp-on system with baskets that attach to this bar, enabling owers to transport a variety of gear. The company specifically demonstrates Ösa as useful for photographers, describing the bike as a ‘mobile studio.’
Ösa was first introduced in late 2019 as CAKE’s second model following its Kalk platform. The new electric utility motorcycle is designed to function as a ‘power station on wheels,’ according to CAKE; it features a top speed of 100 km/h (63mph), range up to 100km (63mi), 65kg (143lb) weight, 6061 aluminum frame, 7050 aluminum handlebars and both medium and large battery options to suit different user needs. The full bike specs are available on CAKE’s website.
Buyers can get Ösa with an optional power converter that enables them to power lights, speakers, laptops, and other electronic items with the motorcycle’s battery. The converter supports 110/220V devices and offers standard US and EU power outlets. The bike itself is charged using standard 110/220V wall outlets and takes around three hours to go from zero to 100% charged.
In addition to the outlets for powering larger equipment, the motorcycle also features a built-in 5V outlet for charging smaller items like phones and a single 12V outlet for ‘medium duty’ items.
CAKE is currently accepting $200 deposits on Ösa with the remainder of the $8,500 price (or higher, depending on configuration) to be paid when the customer’s order ships. The company will start shipping the bikes on a first-come, first-serve basis in March. DPReview has inquired about getting a review unit, but we can’t promise we’ll get our hands on one.
