Curtiss Motorcycle Co.
The company was created in 2017 by Matt Chambers, previous founder of Confederate Motors. The new venture was named in honor of pioneering motorcyclist and aviator Glenn Curtiss. The company's P-40 "Warhawk" motorcycle, already in production, was given a Curtiss nameplate and "Final Edition" moniker.
Curtiss now uses electric motors built by Zero Motorcycles exclusively. Its line-up of design-forward prototypes are named for Greek deities, inspired by the "Hercules" 8-cylinder motorcycle on which Curtiss set a motorcycle land speed record in 1903.
