One Hell of a bike…
Curtiss Motorcycle Co. just one-upped the strikingly skeletal Zeus e-bike unveiled days ago with a pistol-shaped model that’s truly hellacious.
In fact, it’s even called “Hades.” Designer JT Nesbitt, who’s perhaps best known for conjuring the Wraith and Hellcat motorcycles when the company was operating under the Confederate moniker, collaborated with Curtiss team member Jordan Cornille to create an explosive EV without wasting raw materials.
“Our goal with Hades is to build the least wasteful machine possible. This not only applies to how the motorcycle operates, but also how it is constructed,” Nesbitt said in a press release.
“Most of the parts on the machine serve more than one purpose. Like Miles Davis, we’re playing the fewest possible notes to convey the emotion. That’s minimalism.”
Eyes are naturally drawn to the Hades’ bullet-inspired battery case, which houses a massive 16.8 kWH power pack. The rear suspension’s extraordinarily long linkage is connected to an element that looks like the cylinder on a revolver.
