Description

Additional photos of this Curtiss Zeus concept are available here for your perusal.

In 2017, Confederate Motorcycles made the dramatic change of renaming themselves to Curtiss. Then they made an even bigger change: they announced that they were switching from gigantic V-Twin engines (did you see Adam’s Sunday Ride video of his time on a Confederate P51 Combat Fighter?) to electric motorcycles.

Their prototype to show the world what they had in store was the Zeus, a concept that was awarded the “Innovation Award” at the 2018 Quail Motorcycle Gathering.

Curtiss built three prototypes, one of which was also featured at the “Electric Revolution” exhibit at the Petersen Automotive Museum.

The prototypes were created to launch the brand and help build excitement for their initial fundraising efforts to build “a unique electric packaging platform of the future.” The platform has since evolved into a model called the “ONE“, however this prototype marks an interesting transitional point in the brand’s history as it blends some new features with certain design elements from their Confederate days.

Please note that this is a non-running prototype built for display purposes only. The internals of the battery pack and motor are empty as specifications had not been finalized at that time.

With that said, the prototype still shows off several high-end components that were in the plan, such as a 6061-T6 aluminum chassis, fully adjustable girder front suspension with Race Tech shock, Kineo wheels, and Beringer 4D floating cast iron brakes with radially mounted calipers.

It has been on display since it was at the Petersen, and it remains in excellent cosmetic condition except for surface rust on the chain.

The tires date codes are 2817 and 3717.

Currently located at our facility in Santa Monica, California (please make an appointment for an inspection), this Curtiss is offered on a Bill of Sale.
