Curtiss Motorcycle Co is named after motorcycle and aviation pioneer Glenn Curtiss, who is often credited with inventing the V-twin motorcycle engine in 1903 and is known as the father of naval aviation. The P40 Warhawk gets its name from the Curtiss P-40 Warhawk plane from World War II. The P40 Warhawk motorcycle has a massive 2163cc V-twin engine that makes 150-horsepower and 160 pound-feet of torque and has a claimed top speed of 165-plus mph.

“The American V-twin is undoubtedly the most iconic and revered powertrain in motorcycle history,” said Chambers in a press release. “As we prepare to lead an all-new golden age of electrified motorcycles, this Curtiss Warhawk represents the best and final chapter in American V-Twin power and refinement. We’re building a handful of these Warhawks in honor of Mr. Curtiss and as a bequeathment from the brand of yesterday to the brand of tomorrow.”
