Gates belts generated big buzz at Europe's most important motorcycle show, where Cake introduced a new electric two-wheeler and eMobility took center stage.
The launch of the Ösa electric motorcycle from Swedish brand Cake was a media highlight from the International Motorcycle and Accessories Exhibition (EICMA) in Milan, Italy. Publications including Cycle Volta, Electrek, Popular Mechanics and Car and Driver wrote about the new belt driven two-wheeler, which is designed to be a sustainable method of electric transportation and a mobile work station that can power electric tools, instruments or electronics.
The Ösa and its unique design illustrate the innovation that is rapidly transforming electric micromobility – and how Gates is helping to speed this transition by offering a quiet, grease-free, durable alternative to chains. “Our belt drive systems are ideal for both consumers and manufacturers across many performance metrics including noise, total cost of ownership, durability, and maintenance,” says Joe Menzel, General Manager of Gates Global Mobility Business.
