Curtiss Rolls Out Zeus Radial “V8” Electric

It’s hard to picture this thing actually rolling down the road but the Curtiss Motorcycles Zeus Radial is a functioning—and super-fast—motorbike powered by an electric motor designed in a cool “V8” configuration. The look of the “engine” is actually 8 cylindrical batteries that make up the “V” formation. The YASA P400 R Series electric motor produces 217 horsepower and 147 lb. ft. of torque. If those numbers don’t mean much to you, we’ll translate: it’s scary fast.
