CURTISS ANNOUNCES V8 BATTERY-POWERED ELECTRIC MOTORCYCLE
Curtiss Motorcycles announces Hera, Goddess of Electric Motorcycles.
Alabama-based Curtiss Motorcycles has announced that they will make the Hera, a hot rod electric motorcycle inspired by Glenn Curtiss’ 1907 V8 motorcycle, which he used to set the speed record and become the fastest man on earth, at 136.3 mph.
Curtiss hasn’t released specs, but says it features “the world’s first V8 battery architecture, an ultra-powerful, yet refined, E-Twin motor, and a 66-inch wheelbase, Hera will occupy a class all her own.” according to Curtiss CEO Matt Chambers when the bike was unveiled at Pebble Beach this week.
Hera promises to deliver even greater speed than its record-setting predecessor, but in a far more luxurious package. Hera’s long wheelbase and low stance give her a classic and sensual proportion, a deliberate nod to the proportion of the original golden age of American motorcycling.| | | Next → | Single Page
