Canada does not want to be left out of the electric motorcycle revolution, and they are bringing a wonderful electric muscle bike into the game.

Made by Lito Green Motion Open Lito Green Motion in a new window, their first electric motorcycle is called Sora.

Sora

Sora looks like the love child of a Confederate Motorcycle and a Triumph Rocket III. In other words, it looks powerful, and surprise, surprise; it is powerful. It looks like a traditional motorcycle, but it's totally electric with its high-density lithium polymer batteries.

Sora

The Sora will accelerate from 0 to 100 kph in just 4 seconds, and it will top the speed scales at 200 kph. As far as range goes, it's a very respectable 300 kilometers (but at what speed?).

Sora Dash Board

Like most electric motorcycles, there's no clutch, so no shifting. The bike has an integrated GPS and a touchscreen, allowing you to adjust the bike's parameters.

It's hooked up into the internet, so that when you plug in your Sora for a charge, when it's ready, Sora will send you an email saying it's done. Imagine an email coming to your smartphone that says "from Sora: You can come and ride me again".... priceless.

Sora

Your saddle is electrically operated, it changes according to your driving style. It goes between 750 and 850 mm (29.5 to 33.5 in.). The whole motorcycle weighs 240 kilos (529.2 lbs), but that's both dry and wet weight, since you don't take on any fuel.

It's an interesting concept, but it is, like most electric motorcycles, not going to come cheap. But at the end of the day, when you add up all the bills, over the life span of the bike, it will end up cheaper than gasoline powered ones. No gasoline, very little maintenance and no CO2.

Sora

I for one am looking forward to seeing more of this muscle electric motorcycle.

Have a look at the introduction video below (you can hear the electric motorcycle here);
