The geometry and ergonomics are classic as well, empowering the rider with effortless control, speed, handling, and comfort. Curtiss suspension is all-new and “state-of-the-art” states the new Curtiss company. A breakthrough in transparency, accuracy, and quality of information between the tarmac and the Curtiss rider is promised.

    I wonder if the Curtiss estate is cool with all of this.

    Interesting. Does “twin engine power train supplied by Zero” mean this bike has two electric motors? Could be fun.

    I wonder how this is effecting Confederate stock (Symbol: CFED), since they offered up 8,000,000 shares in late 2014.

    Let me guess, “Curtiss since 1902”

    A Confederate E bike should be a rocket ship. I wish they had the intestinal fortitude to keep the old name.

    It’d be good to see an upscale Tesla-model bike for the wealthy.
    They need more cool things to buy.

    One question. Is the above darkened picture just a partial look at the Hercules exhaust? If so, then the bike probably isn’t electric.

    If the reference is the legendary innovator Glenn H. Curtiss, they have some very big shoes to fill…

    Two-wheel drive bike or two electric motors for the rear wheel?

    Curtiss electric motorcycles could this be the tesla of the motorcycle world? I wonder if they are public could be worth getting some stock before the may launch timeframe. hopefully they will be nice likeable design like the tesla, the confederates were always a bit too weird for me. hopefully it is a nice city bike which would be totally different from what they’ve done before well see how different the products are other than the power plant. the motorcycle industry could use a brand that changes the world by creating a goodlooking city bike that you would see all over the big cities all over the world hopefully there will be more teasr images soon!

    @Chief Waldo, will the curtiss company have a new stock name different from CFED for confederate or is it the same? would rather buy curtiss stock over confederate stock but that might be just me

    Gutless change of name. I wouldn’t buy their weird azz motorcycles even if I had the bread. I won’t by zero crap either
