The all-electric Hot Rod God!


Your daily selection of the hottest trending tech news!

According to Yanko Design

Designed with some rather unbeatable specs and an aesthetic that I can only describe as unusual, the Zeus from Curtiss Bikes is well worthy of the title of the “Most Innovative Motorcycle of the Year” given to it by the Quail Motorcycle Gathering.

The Zeus is an all-powerful, all-electric hot rod concept prototype with an estimated output of around 170 horsepower and 290 lb-ft of torque, which could make it one of the most powerful e-Bikes to ever roll of the line if it hits production. This is achieved by the fact that the bike uses two electric motors to drive a single shaft, something the company calls e-twin technology.

As powerful as the electric bike may be, it is, however, the aesthetic that grabbed my eye, with its redistribution of bulk and its use of basic geometry that one fails to notice at first glance, given how stunning the bike looks. Keeping things bottom heavy, the bike comes with all the mass near one’s feet as the area where one would expect a fuel tank, remains relatively empty. Even the seat itself is a slim horizontal member, ending well before the rear wheel which sports a monoshock suspension.

According to the makers, the Curtiss Motorcycle Company, Zeus represents the first of many all-electric American hot rod motorcycles the company plans to introduce over the next several years. Owing to its conceptual prototype status, details are scant at this point, but if the final model looks anything like the concept prototype before us, it’s surely an eye-catcher!
