An electric bike startup has developed a ‘traffic crushing’ moped that can dart in and out of traffic.
A NEW “traffic-crushing” electric motorcycle has been introduced, with its makers hailing it for its “extreme utility” in allowing drivers to weave in and out of traffic.
CAKE, a Swedish electric bike startup, has introduced two new electric moped models, the Makka Flex and the Makka Range. The modular design of the CAKE sa, the company’s first electric moped, is similar to the current Makka electric moped variants at first appearance.
The Makka is a significantly smaller and thus more economical bike, described as the company’s “most agile and compact bike to date.”
“It is a commuting wonder, a lightweight, traffic crushing convenience machine with category-leading performance suited for an active and modern lifestyle,” the description added.
The Makka mopeds, like the sa, are intended to take a variety of utilitarian attachments like cargo racks, rear seats, and other mountable add-ons.
Riders can modify their electric mopeds based on the type of riding they want to do.
The Makka Flex costs just €3,800 (approximately £3,266) and has a top speed of 45 kilometers per hour (28mph).
Because of its top speed, it will be classified as a “moped class vehicle” in many states, allowing it to operate without a motorcycle license.
It is street legal and has a range of 31 miles, making it ideal for city commuting.
The Flex is an ideal, lightweight alternative to an automobile, weighing roughly 65 kilograms (including the weight of the battery).
The Makka Flex is designed for street-legal use in the United States and Europe, with a second model available to Europeans.
The Makka Range has a reduced top speed of 15 mph (25 km/h), but a range of roughly 37 miles (60 kilometers) per battery.
This speed permits the moped to be driven on bicycle lanes without a license, giving it a wide range of mobility options in any city.
The Range starts at €3,500, which is just over £3,000.

It has the same weight as the Flex and is powered by a 1.8KW battery.
Both versions have knobby tires for varied terrain riding and come standard with rear racks. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
