Rule The Road On Curtiss’ Firearm-Inspired ‘Hades’ Electric Bike

If you’ve been following the industry-wide battle for electric motorcycle supremacy, it’s likely that you’ve heard of Alabama’s virtuous builders at the Curtiss Motorcycle Co. Following the company’s sumptuous Zeus build, which was revealed earlier this year, the innovative customizer has decided to reveal yet another two-wheeled powerhouse — a pistol-inspired platform known only as ‘Hades.’

The Hades cycle adds an interesting, off-kilter design to Curtiss’ impressive catalog — boasting a minimalist orientation that heavily references the architecture of a traditional firearm. On the lower half of the bike, a bullet-shaped battery pack is immediately noticeable, followed by a less-than-subtle, barrel-like frame construction and hammer-oriented seat. But, as you might expect, the Hades isn’t all show — a 16.8-kWh battery, capable of 217 horsepower and 147 lb-ft of torque, helps the bike to rocket forth. To foster the cycle’s visionary design, brand CEO Matt Chambers and prodigious project designer, TJ Nesbitt, set out to create a platform where each aspect could be used for more than one purpose. The product? A beautifully-recognized moto that’s as simple (but striking) as they come. The Hades is slated for release in 2020, with a price tag of $75,000.

Purchase: $75,000
