Curtiss Motorcycles, the company formerly known as Confederate, delivered a first look the world’s first “E-Twin” electric motorcycle last year.
It turns out that the futuristic Curtiss Zeus is even more powerful than originally promised. The company now claims that its revolutionary power plant produces not 170, but 190 hp.
ncreased output translates to mind-blowing acceleration: the e-bike will hit 62 mph in just 2.1 seconds. That’s just 0.2 seconds slower than the Tesla Roadster, which is set to become the world’s fastest EV at launch.
Dare we say that the Zeus looks even cooler than in early renderings. The e-bike will be offered as a bobber with an anodized black finish or a black-and-white cafe racer. Both boast sleek curves, a glossy finish and solid carbon wheels like look like it just pulled out of the Batcave, especially in the blacked-out version.
The sleek chassis boasts a machined aluminum monocoque, carbon fiber fuselage, and a clamshell vault that houses a battery with a 280-mile range. There’s a girder-style suspension in the front and the typical swingarm in the rear. Both can be adjusted for high-speed riding.
The Curtiss Zeus can will retail for $60,000 when it arrives in early 2020, and you can reserve one now online for a prepayment of $6,000.
