Curtiss Charges After Harley And Introduces $30k Psyche

Curtiss Charges After Harley And Introduces $30k Psyche After the Zeus and the Hades, Curtiss introduces the Goddess of the soul. For the past year or so, Curtiss Motorcycles’ main focus has been on pushing out crazy electric motorcycle designs. As out there as the array of silhouette may seem, put together, they are starting to give the brand a visual signature—a crucial step in earning recognition. Until now, price and costs haven’t been an obstacle to the team’s creativity. Both models listed on the company’s site, the Zeus and the Hades, are priced at a very premium $75,000.

The new breed of electric motorcycles may be quiet, but they aren’t always weak or limited to short ranges. Motorcycles were dangerous , complicated machines people were too intimidated to try. But after WWII money was tight and people needed more affordable modes of transportation.

Electric motorcycles , on the other hand, have really only started poking their heads into the mainstream in the last 10 years or so. Newron (a quirky name that fuses "neuron" and " Newton ") has been through accelerator programs with Dassault Systems and more recently Advans Group in

A Dangerous Beauty: Newron's New Wooden Electric Motorcycle

It's pretty and electric: two things that don't usually go together.

Electric motorcycles are taking a little time to come into their own. Motorcycle design has always been strictly dictated by their power train, which means finding a spot for a gas tank, routing the appropriate fueling and breathing capacity, and transferring power to the rear wheel from a crankshaft. What happens when designers don’t have to account for all of that mechanical accoutrement, though?

This innovative electric motorcycle from French company Newron is among the first to break the traditional motorcycle design trend. The first thing you’ll notice is that quite a lot of it is made out of wood. That alone is a radical departure from typical motorcycle design, but one that will not catch on where there is any kind of weather. The second thing you’ll notice is that pillar of wood right at the front of the seat. Stop too hard and that thing will be all up in your business, and not in a good way.

Motorcycles Will Not Take Part in the 2020 Pikes Peak Hillclimb

Motorcycles Will Not Take Part in the 2020 Pikes Peak Hillclimb The decision comes after the death of four-time motorcycle champion Carlin Dunne at this year's event. The Pikes Peak International Hillclimb issued a statement over the weekend declaring that motorcycles will not take part in the racing event for 2020. The announcement comes after four-time motorcycle champion Carlin Dunne was killed contesting the 2019 title. Pictured above, Dunne on his way to victory at Pikes Peak in 2012. According to, the event's board of directors convened shortly after the incident to review options.

A motorcycle by definition needs two wheels in the same plane and a seat somewhere in the middle. Electric motors are getting more powerful, and batteries are gaining capacity; all of this tech is likewise getting smaller. Motorcycles powered by electricity don’t need gas tanks, and their flow of electrons are neither aided nor hindered by gravity. All of this means that motorcycle design is about to take a hard turn away from what we all know as the classic “motorcycle” look. We’re at the very forefront of electric vehicle design, and while right now we see a lot of electric motorcycles that look just like their gasoline-fueled counterparts, mark my words: we’re going to see a whole lot more unusual designs. The constraints created by an internal combustion engine are evaporating.

Ramble On – Riding a Motorcycle Will Make You a Better Driver

Ramble On – Riding a Motorcycle Will Make You a Better Driver I recently had the opportunity to visit the Colton Rider Education Center, run by Honda Powersports, where I took the Motorcyclist Training Course. I’ve ridden motorcycles in the past, but it’s been several years, so I thought a refresher was in order before I got my ’77 Kawasaki project back on the road. Registered for a two-day course at the Rider Education Center, about 10 other prospective riders and I began by learning the basics and physics of motorcycling.

Zero Motorcycles offers an entire model line, and each model and variation has a different range. At present, the longest range in the lineup goes to the Range varies in electric motorcycles similarly to how it varies in gas motorcycles . However, the big difference between electric and gas is that

The result is a DIY electric motorcycle capable of more than 70 mph and a range of 60 miles. Judging from the pics and the videos of the bike in action, the kid' s got talent to spare. With only a semester to burn on the project, Miceli got straight to designing.

Newron’s bike is quite a bit different from early, boxy electric motorcycle designs and not just because pieces of it are wooden. The battery itself, instead of being hidden, is adorned with subtle LED lighting and small ports that make the whole thing reminiscent of a jet engine. Everywhere else, the bike has incredibly clean lines and a swooping architecture that would make a fan of mid-century modern design absolutely swoon.

Newron is partnering with French firms Dassault Systems and Advans to build the bikes. There will only be twelve of them produced and offered for sale, and those will be available, briefly, next year. There’s no word on the price, but the look of the thing screams “if you have to ask, you can’t afford it.” Power, capacity, charge times are all a big mystery at the moment. That said, It’s awful pretty, isn’t it?
