The future of transport using electric motorcycles is closer than it is thought, although many doubt it.
We don’t mean on small scooters, but on the two-wheeler with a lot of power available. This and the latest prototype, named Curtiss Zeus 2020, which shows that electricity and power can definitely go hand in hand.
Curtiss is a brand jointly founded by Zero Motorcycles and now unfortunately nonexistent, Confederate, with one goal – the production of the next generation of electric super cruisers. Zeuss is the first prototype that is said to be ready for production in 2020.
The new machine is powered by two electric motors Zero Motorcycles brand, and the final result is 170 Nm and 393 Nm of torque! That’s 260 Nm more than offered by the Kawasaki H2 and 270 Nm more than the BMW HP4 Race model. Electric vehicles are known to offer almost unbelievable numbers when it comes to torque, especially as they have it on immediately available.
Machined aluminum is used in the design, so the entire motorcycle looks like a two-wheeled artwork. The chassis brings Race Tech suspension, carbon wheels, and the Beringer high performance braking system.
Zeus is still in the prototype stage, but it is expected that by 2020 it will be ready for the production line.
