Soriano Motori Makes Its First Electric Motorcycle with Twin Motors

2021 Soriano

Arranged in a Boxer Fashion

Soriano Motori is an Italian motorcycle company, and it now hs its first electric motorcycle. The bike features two electric motors that are situated in a boxer orientation. The unveiling will happen at EICMA 2020, but since that’s still a ways off, some details are coming out now, including the price.

The bike will be called the Soriano EV Giaguaro. It will come in three trim levels: V1R, V1S, and V1 Gara. All three will have the company’s special duo-flex electric motor (the boxer design) and three gears. The two motors can operate independently or together to deliver power, according to Soriano Design and Product Development Director Sergio Moroni told Motorbike Writer.

The bike will have a 93-mile range or more. The top speed will be 111.8 mph. I would assume the various trim levels will get different levels of performance and range. On the company’s website, the V1R is listed for 25,500 Euros, the V1S has a price of 30,500 Euros, and the top-dog V1 Gara has a price tag of 32,500 Euros. 

The company will build a limited-edition series of 100 motorcycles that will be numbered and signed. Customers can pre-order them and they should take delivery in Q1 of 2021. You can pre-order the bikes now on the company’s website.

  1. With prices like that, the graves of dinosaurs will continue to be raided by motorcyclists, including ones who would really like to have an emoto.

    1. It is a legacy asset. More of an investment for a long term return, but it is their 3 gears and double engine that intrigues me the most

  2. Those are very strange specs o.O Two motors, thereby giving a short 98 mile range (makes sense, 2 motors drawing power) yet only 111.8MPH top speed for all that complexity?

    2 small motors in a boxer configuration does not seem, from the specs, to give much benefit. 2 large motors would seem to be the purpose of creating such a design in the first place, combining the power of 2, but 111.8MPH does not seem to reflect a large, 2-motor design.

    So, we’re left with a quandary.

    1. not if you seen the specs I have on it. I will test it in Italy this Nov. You can sign uo for it online with them. This is more than a regular bike.

  3. All electrics have three glaring problems.

    1. Range. At 100 miles that’s 50 out and back. On a good day. That’s not going to get any love from any rider.

    2. Batteries explode. Until there are batteries that don’t, I’ll stick with ICE.

    3. Charging times. Tesla doesn’t seem to get it… it’s not so much range, even 200 is fine, IF it only takes 5 min or less to recharge fully AND there are plenty of chargers around to accommodate all who want one.

    Glad to see there are suckers out there who will drive the tech; I’m just not one of them. But stick with it. Those problems will someday resolve.

    1. I just wanted to comment that I find it pretty funny that you use “batteries explode” as a knock against electric tech despite the fact that ICE vehicles explode much more frequently than their electric counterparts. Nevermind the fact that you literally sit on top of a bunch of explosive liquid while careening down roadways at high speeds.
