Curtiss Motorcycles Curtiss 1 First Pilots 2022

According to Curtiss Motorcycles

America’s leading motorcycle innovator from the internal combustion age is reborn as the world’s

exclusive luxury light electric vehicle marque.

AXIS BALANCED INNOVATION

Our patent-pending CPA (Centered Power Axis) uses the strongest part of the motorcycle, its’ massive splined hard-steel shaft, to perform two key functions:

  • To serve as the drive shaft of the powerful electric drivetrain (adding outboard-bearing support surface area), and,
  • to serve as the swingarm pivot.

CPA eliminates weak conventional stub-axle swingarm pivot design, providing strength and longevity to Curtiss motorcycles. CPA’s Axis Balanced Innovation allows the motor to be placed directly on the vertical plane of the rider and facilitates the rear suspension to pivot coaxially at this centered point. This proprietary system provides the most balanced operation ever created on two wheels, which enhances rider confidence and motorcycle fidelity.

SUPER LIGHT CORE (SLC)

SLC is the best solution possible for motorcycle construction. It has three components:

  • BACKBONE – The backbone of the SLC is the Curtiss Hex Pack, perfectly aligning the neck
    and Centered Power Axis.
  • FUSELAGE – The fuselage is made up of two machined billet aluminum chassis plates. In addition to providing fatigue and flex resistance, the fuselage plates help regulate heat and increase powertrain efficiency.
  • BULKHEADS – There are three primary bulkheads: the steering neck (which is also Curtiss 1’s coolant reservoir), the machined grill and the HVAF (High Voltage Axial Flux) motor.

SLC is 100% flex-free and fatigue-free. It is designed and engineered to last forever and is our spearhead to true sustainability. Its aircraft-inspired origin is completely contextual with our brand. It is entirely 5-axis machined from solid billet making perfect Curtiss chassis alignment repeatable. Importantly, our SLC modular architecture facilitates expression of diverse portfolio design in a better way.
