Curtiss Zeus, an electric two-wheeled vehicle concept with brutal torque

As we all know, now we are entering to the era of electric-powered vehicles, and like not wanting to be left behind, the manufacturers of two-wheeled vehicles are competing to present the figure of an electric motorcycle. One of them is an American premium motorcycle manufacturer, which was originally named Confederate which later changed the name to Curtiss Motortcycles.

Yes, Curtiss Motorcycles will not produce conventional oil-fueled V-Twin motorcycles like before. Even though they had produced it once and the Curtiss Warhawk was noted as the first and last conventional V-Twins motorbike produced by this manufacturer, and only made 35 units.

After being renamed, the American exotic motorcycle manufacturer will only produce electric motorbikes. For that, they collaborated with Zero Motorcycles which later introduced a new concept motorbike and were named Curtiss Zeus.

The American company also claims that the motorcycle engine it carries is capable of spitting out power at 170 horsepower and producing 290 lb.ft of torque. And the braking system uses a Beringer's double-rotor brake.

Later, the Zeus suspension is sourced from Race Tech, applying a cantilever mono-shock center on the back and balanced with a four-link mono-shock front girder. While the rim is made of carbon fiber.
