Rebranded in 2018 from the former Confederate Motorcycles, Curtiss Motorcycles is now back producing electric motorcycles after issuing its last combustion engined motorcycle, the Curtiss Warhawk. There are three models on offer, the Zeus in Bobber and Cafe Racer styling and the retro-styled Hera, named after the Greek god of women and queen of Mount Olympus.

Pricing for the Zeus begins at $60,000 USD (RM248,324) while expressions of interest are being taken for the Hera. Styling on the Curtiss e-bikes follows flat tracker style with flat seat and battery pack where an engine is located on a standard motorcycle.

Power comes from an electric motor mounted under the seat and while Curtiss does not provide any specifications, it does say the Zeus produces the equivalent of 190 hp and 195 Nm of torque with an estimated range of 450 km on a single charge.

Driven by a belt to the 240/45 rear solid disc wheel, the Zeus uses a fully-adjustable girder fork assembly at the front while the back end is propped by a monoshock. Everything is tied together with a chassis machined out of 6061-T6 aluminium, clad in carbon-fibre bodywork.

Braking is done with twin Beringer 4D four-piston calipers clamping 230 mm floating cast iron discs and a single Beringer Aerotec caliper is used at the back. Curtiss claims the Zeus weighs in at 215 kg and seat height is set at 724 mm.
