On November 8, 2022, Swedish electrical bike maker CAKE formally unveiled its all-new Bukk enduro bike to the world at EICMA. A few years in the past, the OEM began its CAKE World Race one-make motocross collection for all the standard causes an organization goes racing, together with its significance in bike growth. The Bukk, it appears, is the primary results of that analysis.
To kick issues off, CAKE opted to supply its latest platform in a limited-edition run of simply 50 machines. Moreover, it introduced that preorders have been already open as of EICMA, so hopeful prospects desirous to get their fingers on what CAKE says is its strongest off-road machine but might purchase one immediately.
As of November 17, 2022, CAKE introduced that each one 50 limited-edition Bukks have already bought out. Every of those bikes will probably be individually numbered, and deliveries are anticipated to start in March, 2023, on the finish of Q1 of the yr. Talking of that first quarter, that’s additionally when CAKE plans to disclose extra details about the Bukk platform and its future plans there.
“The Bukk launch jogs my memory very a lot of the Kalk Restricted Version launch 4 years in the past, with a tremendous welcome and pleasure from the market. This time the restricted version Bukk bought out in lower than every week, with a large response from across the globe. We’re tremendous excited to share the following phases of the Bukk platform,” CAKE founder and CEO Stefan Ytterborn stated in an announcement.
Does this imply we are able to anticipate to see the CAKE Bukk take part within the 2023 spherical of the CAKE World Race? That’s not clear at this level—and, actually, up to now, no particulars in regards to the subsequent spherical of the collection have been revealed simply but. Nonetheless, it will likely be fascinating to see what early adopters of the brand new platform should say about it as soon as Bukks begin rolling out early subsequent yr. If we do get to see them at future CAKE MX occasions, a lot the higher.
If the rollout runs alongside the identical trajectory because the Kalk’s rollout did, we are able to doubtless anticipate to see a number of Bukk variants geared toward barely completely different off-road eventualities within the not-too-distant future. Because the identify Bukk interprets to “Buck” in English, we are able to’t say that we gained’t get a bit of giggle out of an anti-poaching Bukk version, ought to CAKE choose to go that route sooner or later.
