CAKE has unveiled Ösa, a clean and efficient utility vehicle with integrated power station and off-road capabilities. Apart from being a light, clean and quiet electric motorcycle, the Ösa is derived from the diversity of work and differentiated needs of the customer, while simultaneously serving a new means of transportation to accelerate toward a zero emission future.
Heavily influenced by the workbench, the Ösa design features a large gray bar extending out from underneath the seat. This uni-bar, modular clamp-on, system serves as the heart of the Ösa, allowing users to attach baskets, bags, tools and more to create over 1,000 different possible configurations.
"To avoid an environmental meltdown, there is an obligation to change that is shared by everyone. Transportation is one of the more evident changes. We're seeing combustion vehicles being replaced by electric, gasoline and diesel are being banned, and cars will soon be excluded from the urban landscape," commented Stefan Ytterborn, founder and CEO of CAKE. "The Ösa is our next offering -- it provides a viable platform for that change as it so capably meets the diverse needs and priorities of our customers."
While designing the Ösa, CAKE found that the variety of work and commuting in today's society has never been greater. What to bring and what to carry varies greatly between the office worker and the craftsman, and the roads toward the destination include highways and trails and everything in between.
CAKE's solution was to build an electric and modular utility commuter vehicle with off-road capabilities and integrated power station. Thanks to the powerful battery with multiple outlets, the Ösa doubles as a power station on wheels, enabling the rider to be completely independent, off-the-grid.
The Ösa will come in 2 versions: the Ösa Lite and Ösa+. The Ösa Lite (priced at $6,500 with Battery Lean) operates as a moped with top speeds of 30mph and the Ösa+ (priced at $8,500 with Battery Lean) operates as a motorcycle with top speeds of 63mph.
