The Kalk AP off-road electric motorcycle from Swedish e-bike maker Cake is a special edition of their Kalk e-bike. This version is developed specially for the Southern African Wildlife College, an organization that is dedicated to preventing poaching. If you haven’t figured it out yet the AP in the name stands for Anti-Poaching.
The Kalk AP is available as a limited edition of 50 bikes and are being offered as a charity combo. What this means is that for every bike sold, a similar twin bike plus a solar power station is gifted to the Southern African Wildlife College organization. The e-bikes will be used in their continuous efforts to prevent animal poaching. In the areas where the poachers operate, gasoline is hard to come by so an e-bike with a solar charger makes perfect sense. Secondly, e-bikes are virtually silent and won’t alert the poachers from miles away.
So, every time you ride on your Kalk e-bike, someone on the other side of the world is using the same bike to save animals or hunting down nasty poachers.
The e-bike is built on the CAKE Kalk platform. It has a top speed of 56 mph and the rechargeable battery is good for up to 3 – 4 hours of use in the Explore mode. When using the Excel or racing mode, expect riding time to reduce to about an hour. Fully charging the batteries takes about 3 hours.
