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

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.
