Meet The Zeus: An Electric Motorcycle From The Future
April 22nd, 2019 by Erika Clugston
Gearheads and sci-fi lovers alike will ooh and ahh over Curtiss Motorcycles’ Zeus Bobber: a futuristic-looking electric motorcycle harkening back to the ancient Greek king of gods. Actually, they can do more than admire it – they can now preorder “the all-electric hot rod god,” as the company describes it on their website, for delivery in 2020.
The Zeus Bobber is sleek, minimalistic, and looks like something that Batman would drool over. It weighs 475 pounds, can go from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 2.1 seconds, and boasts an electric motor that generates 190 horsepower. The bike’s target range is 280 miles, powered by a lithium-ion battery pack and a maximum torque of 145 pound-feet. As Curtiss forges ahead in the realm of electric motorcycles, the company sees both the Zeus models (the Bobber and Cafe) as the perfect motorcycles to challenge Harley-Davidson and its upcoming all-electric LiveWire.
For interested buyers, you can preorder both Zeus models today. The price is a hefty $60,000 USD, with a reservation payment of 10% ($6,000) and delivery in 2020. That’s a sizeable amount, and far more than the LiveWire, which will have a price tag of $29,799, or even the Zero S, which is available for $10,995. But maybe you just want to feel like a sci-fi inspired god? Then perhaps the Zeus is your hot rod.
