Leading off a busy week of announcements from the EICMA motorcycle show in Milan, Italy, Curtiss Motorcycles unveiled two new versions of their all-electric Zeus motorcycle. Set in both Cafe and Bobber configurations, the two new models (slated for production in 2020) showcase an evolved design and technology package based on the company’s newly-formed Advanced Powertrain Division, led by Paul Ogilvie.

“We are excited to showcase what we believe is the best technology in the industry,” Ogilvie said. “By utilizing cutting-edge energy storage systems to balance power and range, we aim to deliver a range of 280 miles (450km), 145 foot-pounds of torque, and a 0 to 60 time of 2.1 seconds, all with a 140Kw motor.”

“Our original Zeus concept prototype featured obsolete battery and motor technology that was as graceful as a cinder block,” said Curtiss Design Director, Jordan Cornille. “This made it difficult for our team to engineer the machine we all aspired to create. With our new Advanced Technology division, we are developing new battery, motor, and control system technologies that enable us to deliver on our clean, modern aesthetic vision.”

With the announcement, Curtiss continues its aggressive push into the growing electric motorcycle space. These production Zeus models are expected to compete head-on with Harley-Davidson’s upcoming all-electric LiveWire. Curtiss will announce pricing, detailed specifications and reservation details later this year.
