Moving away from fossil energy to start using cleaner technologies, the transition to a zero emission society is necessary.
The global motorcycle industry produces a rough 135 million vehicles every year. Most of these run on combustion engines, leaving an ugly carbon footprint every time they are in use. This is the primary reason behind CAKE – a technology company that develops high performance off-road motorcycles that run on electricity.
