Most manufacturers follow a naming theme when it comes to their wares. It could be anything as long as it’s catchy and makes an impression when consumers hear or read about it. One brand is making waves right now on the all-electric motorcycle front with a stunning collection of rides. Moreover, each of their offerings immediately makes an impact by the name alone. Nevertheless, whatever they call won’t matter if the design is sub-par, but luckily this is not the case. The Curtiss Psyche is the latest member of the company’s pantheon of Greek gods that take the form of sleek rides.
So far, several of its siblings have already graced the pages of Men’s Gear. We have the Hera, Hades, and Zeus. The latter of which even comes in the Bobber and Radial V8 variations. From what we can gather, the Psyche is the marque’s attempt to steal the spotlight from Harley-Davidson’s LiveWire electric bike.
Comparing the two, you’ll note that the LiveWire sports a chunkier footprint and weighs around 549 pounds. Meanwhile, Curtiss’ latest entry is lighter at just 375 pounds. Output-wise, buyers can choose between a 48-horsepower and 96-horsepower variant.
Consumers who want a traditional look will find it on the LiveWire, but it does not mean that the Curtiss Psyche looks bad. It manages to combine unique aesthetics without looking too futuristic. The design is not yet final, but there’s no need to make drastic changes to the awesome frame. It’s difficult to choose between these two exciting electric motorcycles, but we’ll gladly go for the Psyche thanks to its 160-mile range.Discover more from Curtiss
