The notion of an electric has been thought of, ridiculed and for ages now. A handful of though, could see the potential of an motor that could Goliathan torque right the word ‘Go’. Meet Mr.

Pierre Legris, a Mechanical from Montreal who is one such

Having worked for Honda in for over 2 years on the design of a V6 and then moving to France on panoramic sliding glass for Peugeot-Citroën, Legris has a good of the process of development of an automobile. He out by gathering a team of reputed competent in their specialization. also understood the need to to the consumer an electric superbike, styling as one of its biggest priorities.

design cues from and cafe racers, Martin President, The Creative Unit, the lines for this motorcycle. first step in the right has worked well for LITO, orders pouring in from all the world.

This was also helped the stand out from the other superbikes that were off the shelf, some of them victories at the TTXGP under belt.

As easy as it would been for the team behind the to build a more generic like a scooter, or a commuter Legris knew that the kind of expertise the team they would be better off a niche market like of the electric superbike.

When the specs of the SORA, Jean-Pierre realized the need to ensure the be chosen so that homologation, a task for any small manufacturer, be as smooth in various parts of the specifically the US, Canada and Europe.

The has a number of firsts to its credit. We delve into each of

First electric motorcycle transmission

Most automobiles electric propulsion have the motors integrated in the wheels or have a single speed setup. The SORA stakes to being the first electric to have CVT. This efficient utilization of the power by the motor.

Having a CVT means a top of 200 km/h without compromising the 0-100 km/h time of  4

Integrated Touchscreen GPS Power System

The SORA has a touchscreen GPS mounted up front, a world’s on a motorcycle LITO claims. sets this GPS apart the crowd is that, it is also to the SORA’s power control which optimizes power from the motor to ensure you enough juice in the battery to the destination set in the GPS system. This Green Motion’s patented Range System™.

First with electrically adjustable

The guys at LITO Green suggest you raise the seat, of course, while riding in the for the ‘street-fighter’ feel and better and lower the seat while on the highways for the relaxed riding

Pretty cool that the specifications of the bike detail height as “750 to 850mm” .

“Keyless” motorcycle

I have been excited by key less a concept that always me befuddled. How can you trade in the the comfort of the action of slotting in the key and twisting it to and hearing all the electronics going before thumbing the starter, for the convenience of key less starting?

I though, others would and would simply love the of getting on the bike, thumbing the the SORA then detects if key is in proximity and then she roars, er. to life!

Battery, Charging Range

The SORA uses 12 kWh lithium-polymer modules with integrated Management System housed up and covered by the carbon fibre

On an external fast charge it should take around two to charge it fully, and using the charger it should take 8 Another patent LITO here is an email notification that lets you know your motorcycle is fully

The SORA has a specified range of on a single charge, with the disclaimer that its valid when ridden at ‘urban The faster you go, which you are probably to considering the tempting 200kph top the sooner you’re going to to end your ride.

The SORA a USB port inside the storage allowing you to choose different profiles (acceleration curves, braking, etc.).

The SORA good use of LITO’s advanced that controls power of the motor. There are also  3 modes. performance, eco, range.

The SORA also has regenerative as every energy efficient should. Under braking, the energy of the SORA, instead of lost as heat is fed back the motor via the transmission belt, the acts as a generator at this and produces electricity that is to charge the battery.

The SORA is engineered with the high suspension and braking, without the of a test ride yet, we can hope all the engineering makes it as a handling machine as its combustion counterparts.

Jean-Pierre Legris has tried to source all the components on the locally. Nearly 90% of the components on the come from suppliers in Legris seems to have what he set out to do. “Be the first Canadian to develop and market an electrically motorcycle without compromising

Where does this us, the enthusiasts? Would you shell out to 42,399 Canadian Dollars for an superbike when you get some Italian exotics for much What happens though, a couple of years down the petrol (ah, gasoline) so expensive that it will no be affordable for the common man?

Wouldn’t the enthusiast who bet on the SORA the last laugh? More so you consider Legris assures us this motorcycle has been to last, maintenance free for at thirty years?
