The Lito Sora — the baddest electric motorcycle in

The Lito Sora — bad, and battery powered.

Gallery (12 images) google_protectAndRun(render_ads.js::google_render_ad, google_render_ad);Montreal’s Lito has thrown its hat the ring with a new electric that makes some outrageous claims. A full 12 worth of onboard lithium batteries gives the Sora a 300 km range – that’s 185 miles charges. Or you can choose to wrap the on and scream up to a top speed of 200 km/h mph).

With chopper/fighter bad boy and some interesting and innovative like in-dash touch GPS and electronically adjustable ergonomics, the looks like an absolute of a machine. You can’t help but that if it had an accessible pricetag, it look very tempting to the biker.

Zero Motorcycles has light weight and low cost as its strategy to get the electric motorcycle started in the US – we assume both considerations have gone out the at Lito.

But then, dropping weight as a priority opens the to some things that couldn’t fit on the Zero S. The Sora regenerative braking, for example, is inefficient on lightweight machines but a tool on heavier bikes this 240 kg (530 lb) beast. It packs a CV transmission, in a segment most bikes avoid altogether – which keeps the output efficient at a broader of speeds and enables the Sora’s 125 mph top

A higher weight ceiling opens the door for more cells – in this case, three times the power of the Zero S at 12 kWh. That there’s more power to whether you choose to spend it on longer range, or more on massive acceleration and high

The downsides to such a huge pack are equally compelling; the takes a whopping 8 hours to from empty (although it have the nifty feature of you an email when it’s to go). Also, battery are still stupendously expensive. So 12 hours’ worth of lithium will cost around as as a new Japanese superbike, or maybe

One interesting innovation on the Sora is the way the GPS system is integrated with the management system. Punch in destination, and the Sora will how much power it needs to get you – and it will adjust your power along the journey to sure you get there with to spare. It’s a very feature designed to eliminate the anxiety you tend to feel on an knowing that your is dwindling and it’ll take up to several hours to get it charged up.

Another new touch is the idea of adjustable ergonomics – the Sora’s seat unit can move as as 10 cm (4-inches) up and down to completely the feel and handling of the bike. it down for a relaxed, cruisy position, crank it up for extra and a more aggressive sporting It’ll be fascinating to see what of difference that system to the feel of the bike.

The Sora is than just a concept – has built at least one of these and in the flesh it looks, well, 80% as tough as something Confederate make. Which is TOUGH- The downward slope of the aluminum quickly becomes familiar to the the front end is clean and muscular, and the back end looks absolutely The flared battery cells are an substitute for a big lump of engine below, the belt drive and look techno-amazing and the overall is one hell of a … bike.

There’s no price listed for beauty, but it’s going to be The batteries alone will it pretty high up the list of prices – and then there’s the aircraft-grade chassis, the carbon fairings, the CVT, the GPS, the software, the Elka suspension … we to think what the final will be.

But by Odin we’d love to it.
