When we set out to design Zeus, we needed to consider several key mandates.
With the fresh, unique and ergonomic Radial V8 battery pack carried by the multi-material, handcrafted chassis and the elegantly bowed character line that leads the eye from axle to axle, we believe we have met these mandates.
When our Founder, Glenn Curtiss, began building motorcycles in the early 20th century, his intention was to brand them Hercules. The name was chosen to describe his machines’ powerful and timeless designs. This is where we find our inspiration for today's four Curtiss sub-brands (Zeus, Hades, Psyche, Eros). Zeus, god of gods, must then be our first production machine.
The idealistic dimensions of Zeus are achievable only because of Curtiss’ unique, proprietary battery packaging system, developed using the world’s most advanced combinations of raw chemistries. The eight identical cylindrical battery towers are packed with extremely power dense, high capacity cells. These battery cooling towers are easily replaceable, meaning Zeus has the opportunity to effortlessly upgrade its battery technology throughout the years. This is an important factor in creating a truly sustainable product; “fast fashion” is not sustainable. Buying a product, maintaining that same product, and allowing it to mature and become better with you is sustainable.
Zeus takes advantage of the best and finest materials the world has to offer; aluminum, titanium and carbon fiber to name a few. These premium materials are all on display here, showcased through a visually lightweight, skeletal aesthetic. The Ruler demands the very best and is unwavering in what it requires. The Ruler sits majestically and comfortably on its throne making brief, yet memorable, appearances.
Are you a Ruler?
If that isn’t you then I can’t wait for you to meet Psyche, “The Lover”, next week! Psyche is a stripped down, utilitarian machine that is youthful and energetic. Stay tuned!
