If you’ve got $41,000 lying around and you want a made-in-Canada street-legal electric bike, your dreams could come true very shortly.

The seat height is electronically adjustable - high for maximum control in town, low for minimal drag on the highway.

According to CNET, Quebec-based Lito Green Motion has been certified by Transport Canada as a motorcycle manufacturer, and they’re planning to release their Sora electric superbike soon.

They’ve been working on this design for a while now, and the machine has some impressive specs; they’re claiming a range just under 300 kms, which puts it on equal footing or even ahead of its battery bike competitors.

It’s powered by a 12 kWh lithium polymer battery, which is charged through a conventional plug. Recharge time is 8 hours, or 90 minutes with a quick charger. Top speed is claimed to over 190 kph.

With a price tag of $41,000, this obviously isn’t a bike for the masses. It has many trick features that should appeal to the well-heeled buyer, though. Along with its custom styling (supposedly inspired by bobbers, streetfighters and the like), the Sora has an electronically adjustable seat, a GPS with 14.2-cm screen integrated into dash, keyless start, and a CVT transmission.
