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.
