Speaking to motoring enthusiasts and media at a hangar in Monterey,
Curtiss Chairman and CEO Matt Chambers said, "With Hera, we set out to
create the world's most luxurious motorcycle. Featuring the world's
first V8 battery architecture, an ultra-powerful, yet refined, E-Twin
motor, and a 66-inch wheelbase, Hera will occupy a class all her own."

According to Curtiss Design Director Jordan Cornille, Hera is inspired
by Glenn Curtiss' land speed record-setting 1907 V8 motorcycle, the
iconic machine which earned Glenn Curtiss the title "Fastest Man on
Earth" when on January 23, 1907, he reached 136.3mph on Ormond Beach in
Florida.

Utilizing a proprietary battery and electronics architecture, Hera pays
homage to the iconic 1907 Curtiss V8 by reimagining the machine it in an
all-electric form, complete with eight "cylinders" of high-density
lithium-ion batteries.

Hera promises to deliver even greater speed than its record-setting
predecessor, but in a far more luxurious package. Hera's long wheelbase
and low stance give her a classic and sensual proportion, a deliberate
nod to the proportion of the original golden age of American
motorcycling.

With the announcement of Hera, Curtiss continues to ratchet up the heat
in the growing electric motorcycle space. The news comes on the heels of
Harley-Davidson's recent signaling of their own upcoming electric model.
With both brands set to release bikes over the next 18-24 months, the
stage is set for an all-electric all-American motorcycle showdown
between two brands with deep roots in American motorcycle history.
Detailed specifications and pricing for the Curtiss Zeus have not yet
been released.

Based in Birmingham, Alabama, Curtiss Motorcycle Company (OTC:CMOT) is
on a mission to lead an all-new golden age of sustainable motorcycles by
designing and crafting the world's best and finest electric motorcycles.
