The Makka moped comes in two versions, the Flex and Range. Both run on an exchangeable lithium-ion battery and weigh in at about 132 pounds, including the battery. Charging that battery will take three hours to reach 100%, or 2 hours to reach 80%. The versions vary in speed and range; the Flex reaches a top speed of 28 mph with a range of 31 miles, and the Range reaches a top speed of 15 mph with a slightly longer range of 37 miles.

CAKE designed the Makka with efficient transportation in mind. As Stefan Ytterborn, CAKE CEO and Founder, explained, “With cities and urban mobility changing faster than expected with cleaner and more efficient solutions, we have been eager to share the Makka: An urban short-haul vessel, compact in size and price, reaching a wide audience in the process of deciding what their future means of transportation will be.”

With an adjustable seat, the Makka can adapt for your comfort. This zero-emission transportation option also accommodates various racks and mounts to store bags and gear. Aimed at commuters in dense, urban areas, the Makka offers a quick, unobtrusive way to get around. Want to include a passenger seat? No problem. The Makka Flex can be outfitted with a passenger seat for whoever you want to bring on an adventure with you.

Available in either white or gray and street legal in both the U.S. and Europe (though only the Flex is available in the U.S.), the Makka is part of CAKE’s mission toward “a zero-emission society.”
