It takes some audacity to name an electric motorcycle after the god of the underworld, but thankfully, the Curtiss Hades is appropriately hellacious.
The pistol-shaped machine was designed with the intention of creating a furious EV without wasting raw materials.
Taking inspiration from Miles Davis — who conveyed emotion using the fewest notes possible — the motorcycle’s parts are designed to perform more than one function. Case in point: its bullet-like cylinder, which houses a 399 VDC, 16.8 kWh battery connected to a 217 hp motor, while also incorporating foot pegs for the rider. Sinfully nifty.
