LITO SORA History
LITO Motorcycles was founded under the name LITO Green Motion in Montreal in 2009 by Jean-Pierre Legris, who had an early vision of electrification expanding to motorcycles. He wanted to build the best electric motorcycle based on five guiding principles: leading-edge innovation, award-winning design, superior quality, best-in-class performance and exclusivity. In 2011, the concept was awarded the prestigious RedDot Design Award.
In 2014, LITO introduced the very exclusive limited-edition SORA. It was hailed by the media as the first electric superbike, a new exotic segment in the electric motorcycle category.
Quail Motorcycle Gathering is an event held annually since 2009 at Quail Lodge & Golf Club in Carmel, California, and attended by more than 3,000 guests. The Concours d’Elegance features more than 300 motorcycles in classes such as American, British, Japanese, Antique, and other featured classes.
