2015 Montreal Motorcycle Show - A Brief Overview

The last time I was at the Montreal Motorcycle Show I was there working on behalf of Moto-Sport Newman as a sales rep for Kawasaki Motorcycles. Thinking back, really the only memorable motorcycle that I can recall at the time was Quebec's Lito Green Motion (LGM) The Sora. An electric motorcycle (pictured left) that is available via luxury automobile dealerships. Yes, you read that correctly. At $42, 399 per bike, The Sora is Sorta Expensive and probably wouldn't be too well received amongst its two wheeled brethren, not least of all when you have far more affordable and real world electric bikes with similar range like Zero Motorcycles and Brammo Motorcycles. Nevertheless, this year's motorcycle show had promised to be exciting as it featured some of the newest and most interesting motorcycles to have come out in a long time. I was fortunate enough as well to be accompanied by Percy Hart, cigar box guitarist extraordinaire and all around nicest fella this side of Planet Earth!
