    A 185-mile range and top speed of 120mph. Is this the future?

    THIS is the Lito Sora, a new electric motorcycle made in Canada.

    Lito specialise in electrial drive systems and electrical energy storage and the Sora is their first motorcycle.

    The Sor has a claimed range of 185 miles from one charge and has a top speed of 120mph. It hs a clever 'Safe Range' system that ensures you won't run out of power - you tell the bike how far you have to travel and it will manage your power, so you don't blast long at 100mph and run out of juice 5 miles down the road.

      This has been around a while. Have they actually started selling them yet? I see a price in the article, but nothing to say that you can actually get one. And since the price is in pounds it suggests that they might be available in Europe.

      I just sent a request for a test ride. We'll see how real they are.

      Remember to document, when and if that ride happens.

      They've had CAD models for a while - these are the first pictures of a prototype I've seen. That's progress.

      It's a Canadian company - I think the price is in pounds because Visordown is a UK magaznie. If that price is correct, it's a $41,000 motorcycle. :0

      I've seen pictures of it before, not just CAD models.

      Well, here's what I just got:

      Thank you for your interest in Lito GREEN MOTION. Sorry for the delay in my reply. We are currently planning tests drive in Canada and US. Because the demand is high, we might add date in EU. We will keep you informed of dates in the coming weeks. We are also taking reservation for the SORA, still delivery opportunities for May 2012.

      Thank you very much!

      Jean-Pierre Legris

      CEO
      Lito Green Motion Inc.


      I'm underwhelmed...
