After a two year development period, Canadian manufacturer Lito Green Motion proposed its electric bike called 'Sora'. The bike’s energy source is a 12 kWh lithium-polymer battery, which, the manufacturer claims, is good for a range of 190 miles (300 kms). A powerful electric motor provides a top speed of 120 mph (190 km/h) without the driver having to switch gear like on most normal motor bikes.

 

Lito Green Motion say the Sora was designed for “ultimate efficiency, power and performance”. Some of its features and benefits include:

  • An energy storing, integrated charge management system. Ride for up to 190 miles on a single charge thanks to the top-of-the-line, high-density battery — built to last for the life of the bike

  • A powerful electric motor and CVT transmission mean zero clutch and phenomenal torque

  • An advanced communication and power management unit developed by LITO and designed to convert every watt of power efficiently to minimize energy loss

  • A patented Safe Range System™ to accurately manage the amount of energy as you set your destination

  • State-of-the-art integrated GPS system and touch screen.

  • The world's first ever electric motorbike seat allows ride handling on the fly

  • High-quality front fork and rear suspension and top-of-the-line braking

  • An on-board charging port and sealed lockable storage compartment.

  • Patented email notification when the SORA charge is complete

  • A regenerative braking system. Energy lost during braking is used to recharge the battery, so you can travel further in a single charge.

  • Lightweight carbon fiber fairing and aluminum chassis.

 

Lito has announced a first demonstration of the Sora at the Montreal Forumla-1 races in June 2011. The Sora is expected to come with a price tag of around 45,000 dollars.
