The newly renamed Curtiss Motorcycles, formerly known as Confederate, is entering the electric motorcycle market with their radical Zeus Bobber, which looks part Tron bike and part Star Wars First Order Special Forces Tie Fighter and amounts to what might be one of the quickest electric bikes around. The hulking black bike has a strong and light aluminum monocoque frame, solid carbon wheels in front and back, a fully adjustable suspension that can toe between commuting and racing, and a 190 horsepower electric motor with a lithium-ion battery pack for juice and an incredibly practical 280-mile range. The thing weighs in at a mere 475 pounds, which gives it a crazy power-to-weight ratio that should make it frighteningly quick (0-62 mph in 2.1 seconds), and it has powerful brakes to ensure rapid speed scrubbing to match the bike’s oomph factor. We just wonder what kind of saddle sores you’ll get from the minimalist seat. It also comes in a Cafe Racer style bike that’s less visually intimidating but no less cool in terms of futuristic style and radical power are concerned. Curtiss is now taking reservations on its site.
