    Really cool to actually see the bike take the step from 3D rendering. Kinda sucks that Lito had to have so many custom engineered parts, jacking up the price.. The rear suspension is very novel though.

    A behind the scenes video with commentary by the founder/president. Their marketing approach sounds very much like Tesla's. Maybe they should team-up?

    Just looking through their gallery today. It seems they have a Quig charger and 6 EIG (or similiar pouch cells) modules in there. It also has a Perm PMS 156 motor that they are driving a little bit past its limits it seems. This thing is very close to a Mission R design the way it is packaged and designed

    Something like a 28s6p would give about 12.2kWh (of 20Ah EIG) for that bike. Looks like also a Sevcon Gen4 Size 6 maybe, that works out perfect with 28*4.15V= 116.2V. Just under the Sevcon max 118V limit. The sizing across the frame also works out. I love this stuff haha

    The Sora reminds me of the Brutus bike in looks anyway. Saw the Sora on Tech Toys last night...think it was a repeat. Dont think too many people will put down 40k for it!!

    I had the occasion last summer to try the Sora at Montreal circuit Gille Villneuve. I was really amazed by the quality of the product and power it have! I was sceptic about the CVT but after the try i can conclude it's really working well ! The LiTo founder is also a nice guy. I discussed with him few hours.

    Haven't seen much press about the Lito Sora recently, but looks like production is nearing. According to the following newcast, the Lito Sora will be on the road next Spring. Price for the Sora, with its carbon shell, aluminum frame and 12 kWh lithium-polymer battery modules, is reported as C$46,000 ($43,326.76 USD). Would love to see a side by side comparison of this and the Brutus 2.
