Curtiss Zeus bobber and cafe racer are e-bikes from a dystopian future

Two more marvels in the growing list of electric motorbikes that will hit the market in the next few years.

Curtiss Motorcycle Company has created two new electric motorbikes that would look great in a sci-fi dystopian movie. They’re called Zeus bobber and Zeus cafe racer, as they draw inspiration from the respective motorbike category with a futuristic interpretation of their historical design elements. Although what we’re seeing here is a carefully rendered concept missing some of the elements needed in any street-legal motorbike (such as mirrors, padded seats, for example) Curtiss says the Zeus is production-ready and will hit the road sometimes in 2020. The company hasn’t finalized the specifics but is hoping to get up to 280 miles of battery range and a 0-60 mph time of 2.1 seconds, thanks to a 140-kilowatt motor (190 horsepower) and 145 pound-feet of torque. The specs goals are as impressive as the price, though: $60.000. Curtiss has already opened pre-orders on its website, with a reservation prepayment of $6000.
