Lito Green Motion Sora

Electric moto: Sora by Lito Green Motion
I’m ambivalent about electric motorcycles. The head says yes, but the heart says no. But I like the look of the Sora, which comes from Canadian company Lito Green Motion. It’s due to be unveiled next month, with deliveries beginning in October. Top speed is given as 200 kph (120 mph), and there are novelties like an electric seat—so you can change the riding position from sportbike to cruiser-style—and an integrated GPS system. The $44,000 Sora is designed to be ridden for up to 300 km on a single charge and it also sports a CVT transmission. Unlike most electric motos, this one seems to have an emotive design philosophy behind it: LGM wanted to take “the best design elements of bobber and café racer/streetfighter bikes” to create “a unique style of motorcycle that is part custom, part sport bike.” Now that sounds like they’re on the right track.
