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). A symbol of style and sophistication, the all new SORA is the worlds first Luxury Electric Superbike. The SORA by LITO is a Luxury Electric Motorcycle with a host of features and performance that have never been seen in this category.
