The essence of design

The revolutionary SORA features the best design elements of Bobber and Café Racer/Street Fighter bikes, combined in one innovative, zero-compromise electric superbike. The Bobber influence can be seen in the rear fender that is fixed to the wheel, while the Street Fighter influence can be seen in the dynamics of the front of the bike. The result? A unique style of motorcycle that is part custom, part sport bike — combined in one supermachine.

Evolutionary dynamics

The SORA features the world's first electric seat on a motorcycle, allowing the driver to completely change the driving dynamics of the bike at the simple push of a button. Drive comfortably in a low seat position when you're cruising on the highway, then shift the seat higher for city driving to recreate that Street Fighter feel.

Ergonometric specs:

The SORA's wheel base offers drivers maximum agility on the urban circuit and comfort on highways. With the electrical seat system, drivers of all shapes and sizes can enjoy superior comfort and balance. And because the motor has almost no moving parts, the SORA vibrates way less than conventional motorcycles.

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 200 km in city and ovrer 100 km on highway 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. Experience the power of going almost 200 km/h with zero clutch and phenomenal torque that makes you feel like you're flying on the road
  • 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™. With this revolutionary application you will never experience range anxiety. Just set your destination the Sora will manage the amount of energy to get you there
  • State-of-the-art integrated GPS system and touch screen. Stay connected to your bike in a new way never before possible
  • The world's first ever electric motorbike seat. Change your ride handling on the fly
  • High-quality front fork and rear suspension and top-of-the-line braking, designed to let you stop faster than on almost any other superbike
  • An on-board charging port and sealed storage compartment. Keep you gear dry and secure
  • A regenerative braking system. Energy lost during braking is used to recharge the battery, so you can travel further in a single charge. The system also minimizes impact on the brake pad, which means less maintenance
  • Lightweight carbon fiber fairing and aluminum chassis. Aircraft grade materials, stronger, lighter, faster.

LITO Innovations

LITO is the first company in the motorcycle industry to develop a bike that combines electric motorization, sport-like performance and adjustable driving dynamics (the bike features an electrical seat that allows you to shift between "custom" and "sport" handling as you ride).

In addition to the SORA, LITO provides sub-systems and design services for powerful, eco-efficient vehicles of various sizes. As these vehicles demand high performance as well as sufficient battery-storage space, and LITO can now offer solutions to meet this need.

We are proud to offer to OEM products and services that will:

  • Reduce cost and development time
  • Reduce vehicle weight
  • Maximize power
  • Minimize environmental pollutants
  • Reduce fossil fuel consumption.

LITO offers three key technological solutions:

1

A turnkey Electric Vehicle Propulsion System

2

An automatic Safe Range System™

3

An adjustable driving position mechanism.
