Curtiss Zeus: the world’s first E-twin motorcycle with a monstrous 393 Nm of torque!
Because Zeus is still in prototype form, there’s not much information available about the bike.
What is known is that Curtiss worked with Zero Motorcycles to source two electric engines, join them to create that E-twin unit, and get Zeus to reach a maximum power of 170 hp and a monstrous 393 Nm of torque! The motors work on a common output shaft. All this power comes from a 14 kWh battery pack, but we still don’t know what will be the range of this electric bike.
Curtiss Motorcycles installed Beringer double rotor brakes up front, suspension comes from Race Tech shocks (both front and rear), while the wheels are closed disc type made in carbon fibre. For those who like technology, the dashboard is an iPad and all the lighting system is LED.
There’s no word on pricing yet, but if we had to guess, we would say that this is a motorcycle, that like most of the old Confederate bikes, will only be affordable to Hollywood stars. Curtiss Motorcycles plans to have the Zeus on sale by 2020.
