SORA Electric Superbike

Another company named LITO, this one based in Quebec, Canada is investing in a new  generation of electric motorcycle and launched the SORA, a quite sleek state-of-the-art Superbike offering some interesting features. It features a Constantly Variable Transmission (CVT) allowing you to reach a top speed of 200 km/h (about 125 miles per hour) without compromising the bike’s powerful acceleration capabilities: 0-100 km/h (about 65 miles per hour) in just 4 seconds.

A “Safe Range System™ function let you you enter your destination in the GPS and its software automatically sets the power to ensure the motor has enough battery power to get you to your destination. Via a push button located on the right-hand controls the seat can be activated and adjusted safely while you ride or while you are stationary. With the SORA’s keyless system, all you have to do is push the start button and the bike will detect the proximity of the key card in your pocket. A light and a small beeping sound will signal that the bike is ready to run. Price is Canadian $42,399 with 1 year unlimited milage warranty. You can reserve a test drive by jumping to LITO Green Motion.

    It looks really impressive, some real thought has gone into this – a serious top speed and a 300km range make it very usable. It’s the first electric bike I can see me riding but Its a lot of cash though!

    Electric and motorcycle should never be in the same sentence together, especially not adjacent!

    Sounds like a great machine, too bad the price is so high.

    I have an electric bike already (vectrix) and although technically its a maxi – scooter ala suzuki bergman i’ve ridden it for 3500 km and i’m totally converted. Suddenly you realise how the electric bike can go – heaps of torque – almost silent and after riding bikes for 20 years – i’ve lost the jaded feeling i was getting with petrol engines. If you ever get a chance to ride electric, remember to try to not let your ‘loud pipes’ mentality get in the way and to keep an open mind. Remember in this world change is constant.
