CAKE launches the Jante

A new high performance electric IPM motor for lightweight electric motorcycles.

CAKE, the Swedish maker of premium lightweight, electric motorcycles, is proud to announce the introduction of its new high performance electric IPM motor - the Jante.

CAKE is dedicated to designing and manufacturing the most innovative electric off-road performance motorcycles at the highest quality, driven to inspire and accelerate towards a zero emission society. By constantly pushing the boundaries of technology with the most optimized solutions, CAKE is speeding up the process of making combustion engines a thing of the past.

Designed from the ground up and utilizing the latest Internal Permanent Magnet (IPM) motor technology, the Jante delivers unprecedented efficiency, power and reliability that aims to revolutionize performance standards of lightweight electric motorcycles. With a lightweight but robust construction, featuring an aircraft-grade aluminum housing and dual-bearing shaft, the Jante motor is designed for optimized performance in lightweight electric vehicles. Allowing low and high voltage drivetrains to hit speeds over 100km/h and torque numbers over 500Nm on the rear wheel.

The Jante’s innovative design makes it CAKE’s most optimized IPM motor with radial flux for efficiency and power, low cogging that allows smooth acceleration and precision handling at low speeds, and its air-cooled system allows high torque at high RPM. The motor is rated at IP67 and allows it to operate in any condition.

As the new standard of the exceptional power-to-weight ratio of CAKE’s lightweight electric motorcycles, the Jante motor is designed to utilize CAKE’s uniquely designed frame, suspension, and components, enhancing it for unmatched agility and control. The CAKE battery features fast-swapping technology that allows an easy exchange of batteries in sub 30-seconds without the need for tools, a significant benefit for racing activities. The Software in the Battery Management System (BMS) and Motor Driver meticulously ensures optimal efficiency as well as driver experience for both the battery and drivetrain.

"We are very excited to introduce our new high performance Jante Drivetrain," says Stefan Ytterborn, CAKE CEO and Founder. "The Jante represents a significant advancement in CAKE’s electric motor design, providing our customers with a superior product that meets their needs for performance, efficiency, and reliability.”

“The biggest reason for our in-house developed motor is to take major steps forward, increasing performance for the category of lightweight electric motorcycles. At the heart of our vehicles everything is based on CAKE components that together deliver performance to the next level. We are happy to see our drivetrain technology being used in a number of bold projects. CAKE battery controller algorithms and more are already in other builds, and the new Jante is a significant addition to our drivetrain technology." continues Ytterborn.

The new Jante offers several key benefits, including:

  • New IPM motor technology
  • Higher torque at high RPM
  • Improved durability and reliability due to dual-bearing shaft
    and aircraft-grade aluminum housing, rated at IP67
  • Low cogging for smooth acceleration and precise handling at low speeds
  • Compact and lightweight design for easy integration into a
    wide range of applications

    CAKE is committed to delivering innovative solutions that meet the evolving needs of its customers. The products based on the CAKE components have several design registrations and pending registrations and are the most design and innovation-awarded technology in the two-wheeled electric vehicle industry.

Jante - Silent & Powerful

The Law of Jante, or "Jantelagen" in Swedish, is a set of informal, social norms that have been assumed and observed by people in the Nordic countries. These norms emphasize modesty, humility, and the idea that no individual is more important than the collective group.
