Curtiss Hera Electric Motorcycle

Published By

The coming two years might go down as the time when the electric motorcycle really took off. Harley Davidson announced plans to release an all-electric contender in 2019 and while we don’t know much about that bike, we do know a bit about a bike from another American motorcycle company, Curtiss. The Alabama-based company announced the 2020 release of Hera, an all-electric, super luxury bike that looks a lot like the bike of the future.

With an aggressively long wheelbase (66 inches), a low boneline, and glossed-out black and chrome everywhere it looks like it should have a button that makes it take flight. The design takes cues from the bike made famous by the company’s namesake, Glenn Curtiss. In 1907 he rode a V8 motorcycle to set the land speed record of 136.6 miles an hour — and they’re saying Hera will go even faster.

For the all-electric version of the bike, the eight “cylinders” are now eight high-density lithium ion batteries. The bike also features proprietary battery and electronics architecture. Look for it flying by on a road near you in the future. The very near future. – Learn More
