The Kalk AP, Ösa Flex and Makka Flex will be on display when the Electric Revolutionaries exhibition premieres on april 14th in Los Angeles, CA.

CAKE, the Swedish maker of premium lightweight, electric motorcycles, today announced that the world leading Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, CA, has selected three Cake motorcycles, one from each currently available model platform, to be on display when their upcoming exhibition – Electric Revolutionaries – opens on April 14th.

“We’re already humbled that the Petersen Automotive Museum has the Kalk OR in its permanent collection, since a couple of years. Highlighting our entire main catalog of models, and acknowledging our aim to inspire and excite towards a zero-emission society, is a great endorsement for our ambitions”, says Stefan Ytterborn, founder and CEO of Cake.


Kalk AP, Ösa Flex & Makka Flex will be on display at the Petersen Automotive Museum.

Electric solutions to real-life problems

Electric Revolutionaries follows the successful Electric Revolution exhibition of 2019. Curated by Paul d’Orleans of the Motor/Cycle Arts Foundation, the Kalk AP, Ösa Flex and Makka Flex will be on display, alongside roughly 25 other examples of electric innovation in the two-wheeled sphere.

“I’m super excited to include the new CAKE lineup at Electric Revolutionaries, especially the AP anti-poaching bike; CAKE’s concern for endangered wildlife reveals the heart of the company.  I also love the :work series, as I was a contractor for 25 years and would have loved to zip to my clients on a Makka!

This is our second exhibit at the Petersen Museum featuring CAKE, and we’re proud to feature their excellent work as Electric Revolutionaries”, comments Paul d’Orleans, guest curator of Electric Revolutionaries.

“It pleases me to see that the world is quickly embracing the electrification of two-wheeled vehicles, driven both by responsibility and the call for insightful legislation. Our bikes on display at Electric Revolutionaries perfectly demonstrate not only the incredible pace of societal change, but also how they create opportunities and offer elegant solutions to real issues.

 Such as how the rugged off-roader Kalk AP have made silent and solar-powered anti-poaching activities a reality on the African continent, or how craftsmen from all over the world have started to use the mobile workbench Ösa Flex to beat urban traffic, while hauling their gear in an emission-free, efficient way”, ends Stefan Ytterborn.

Electric Revolutionaries opens April 14th at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, CA. Learn more at www.petersen.org
