CEO & Chairman of the Board @ Curtiss Motorcycles
A New Golden Age for the Electric Motorcyclist II
Part 2: Timeless Proportion
As the fiercely American road bike brand of the future, Curtiss is all business about understanding where we are and why. We know that centralization of our food industry results in us over consuming and being disproportionate. We know that 911 and its aftermath made our vehicles swollen and tank like (think sedans with more metal and scale; the SUV from which to extract more for less). On two wheels it is the neverending quest for power, even though on a proper road bike on public streets you cannot sanely and rationally deploy much of it. Bottom line; motorcycles are bloated. This includes my previous work. However, I did make three proto 96 cubic inch V-Twins that were de-stroked and one inch under stock in 1999 that were the best V-twins I ever rode. (Also, much more proportionate due to mere 1 inch reduction in bottom to top girth).
So, on a very personal level, it is all about the new golden age of ideal proportion coming around again, this time with the highest level best in the world powertrain technology, geometry, materials specification, suspension, brakes, wheels, suspension engineering and chassis engineering. From their cradle to their tallest point, Zeus and Hades measure 23 inches. This is the money spec. All that performance packaged just right. Uber ground clearance that provides a negative space backdrop that looks the business while maintaining low centered mass and a low seat height. This is the mandatory starting point necessary for designing the most beautiful motorcycles.
This is the aspect of Curtiss that makes me feel the most lucky. When you experience this idyllic proportion in person you will be blown away, I promise you. It is so attractive and inviting. Quite the counterpoint to the bloated scary monsters that are mass produced all around us.

Curious how well the companies have done? Or how many raised follow-on financing?
Some fine print: 1) These numbers include startups currently live on Wefunder if they pass their minimum target. 2) Some startups use two different laws at the same time (i.e., Regulation D and Regulation Crowdfunding).
