Curtiss Motorcycles has unveiled the latest addition to the company's electric motorcycle line-up. Instead of being a prototype, this is a design concept. The Hades Electric Bike is the latest electric motorcycle from the brand that has some high-performance features similar to the company's flagship prototype - the Zeus electric motorcycle. The Hades comes with a massive 162 kW (214 bhp) motor in a minimalistic frame and has a peak torque output of 200 Nm.
The 399 CDC battery is present in a bullet-shaped, finned enclosure at the centre of the bike, where a conventional internal combustion engine is supposed to be. The battery comes with a capacity of 16.8 kWh, which makes it one of the largest standard battery offerings on any electric motorcycle. The design of the Hades is also quite interesting, with the girder fork giving it a different look, as well as the horizontally-mounted rear suspension. The saddle has a pronounced cup and the taillights are mounted on the underside of the saddle. There's no foot pedal for a rear brake, and the Hades employs a left-hand side brake lever in place of a conventional clutch lever.
The Hades is slated to be introduced as a production model sometime in 2020, and it will be priced at around $ 75,000 (around ₹ 51. 61 lakh under current exchange rates). Currently, Curtiss Motorcycles is crowdfunding towards production and has been able to achieve its funding goal. So, it is a clear indication that the Hades, like the Zeus, will actually end up being full-fledged production models after all. But there's no denying the fact that these will be exclusive electric bikes, and the price tag will mean, only a select few will be able to afford any of these bikes.
