Ant now into the future with Cake and Design by Hookie Co.

ANT now into the future

As a huge fan of innovative ideas to invent the motorcycle themselves, Cake was one of the brands who make their own foot steps. Back in 2019 they released the new ÖSA platform and it was the right thing – combining fun with urban mobility. In early 2020 we did a test ride with the beautiful bikes from Cake and we were more than hooked from the ÖSA. The benefits are clear – it’s a bike which can everything. A urban commuter with the potential to go through the woods for a quick spin, or to clear your mind in a city stroll. The feedback on the ÖSA was mixed, but the look made it very noticeable and we had a lot of good talks about the future of motorcycling. This was one of the reasons why we totally trust in this electric movement and our very first Electric Custombike which is based on a ÖSA+ and Ösa Lite. 
After a lot of fun rides and tests with our own ÖSA’s we started with a different concept. The briefing was simple, we wanted to build a ÖSA which doesn’t look like a conventional motorcycle. We didn’t even think about adding a fake fuel tank or fake pipes. We wanted to give the ÖSA a sporty, young and artsy look. 

Together everyone achieves more = Team

The platform with the straight main frame bar was perfect to play around with shapes and forms. After all different concepts we found the perfect character for it: This tiny thing, with so much power and potential reminded us of an ANT. For us the ÖSA has the same DNA and strength like an ANT and you can do everything with it especially with a lot of power. It’s a platform which allows you to carry your backpack, to add a tent, a blanket, your jacket, a bag for groceries, or even a basketball … and it allows you to express yourself even more than ever! And as an important sidenote; ANT’s are Teamplayers … just like us! 

Combining fun with mobility

The new main body is mounted with some newly developed 3d printed clamps directly to the main frame of the ÖSA. It has different spots to add luggage in the front area and it allows you to change your seat position swiftly. We’ve also updated the ergonomics al little bit – we developed a plate with the footrest system which allows you to change the footrests on different positions and the seat of the ANT is almost 1cm lower now than the stock seat. To carry all necessary items for a day we teamed up with HEIMPLANET and added some rucksacks to the ANT. Just one hook and you can easily mount it on your bike. It’s up to you if you run with two rucksacks, one or none. Carry your friends stuff too? Furthermore we created a nice little basket which is located directly on the battery pack  This basket is perfect for some clothes or boxes. With an included rubber band you can tighten everything up nicely. 
The new main body is also our canvas for unlimited design options. It is made out of 3mm Aluminum and offers a lot of design opportunities. It’s the main piece to express feelings and values! One of our ANT’s is painted by Nico himself with some dirty typography. It says “whenever things get complicated, ride and play hookie”.
The other ANT has a white powder coated body panel and is wrapped with some colored shapes. Changed were also made to the complete light setup. A new headlight bracket which is directly mounted on the front nose of the ÖSA and holds a KOSO Thunderbolt Headlight.
Some Hookie Rapid Signals are sticked on the handlebar and 2 new LED rearlights are placed directly in the rear end of the main frame. To give our ANT’s more offroad/onroad capability we changed the tire setup to some Bridgestone 14×5.4 REC tires. They fits perfectly into the ÖSA frame and we had no issues with rubbing or the chain line. Our ANT’s will be available as complete bikes and also as branded bikes for companies and of course as a Moto-Kit.
