is excited to share some updates on the assembly of our three beta
We are making significant progress
on the final assembly, with the chassis together while we wait for the
final round of carbon fibre parts to finish the suspension
sub-assemblies. We have been experimenting with mixing and matching
colours, mixing black with raw aluminum components, as well as
different finishes on the battery casings.
You’ll notice on the black
monocoque we have prototyped our concept for interchangeable insert
panels; these are simple flat metal panels that are secured within the
negative spaces milled into the frame and will allow us to offer a
variety of colour and material choices to clients who wish to
personalize their Curtiss
1. And they are easily exchanged if the client wishes
to change the combination; as they are simple flat panels, we can offer
them in different metals, different finishes, or even different
materials. How about leather, or fabric, or carbon fibre, or copper?
Anything our clients can dream up can be accomplished!
battery supplier CIE Solutions is making progress on our battery
modules. There are five modules stacked in each Curtiss 1Power Pak. One
module is 1.5 kw-h, for a total of 7.5 kw-h in the Power Pak. We
calculate the nominal maximum capacity at 6.6
kw-h, using approximately 90% state of charge.
Something important to note is
that Curtiss is the first EV motorcycle company to employ a liquid
cooled battery pack. The pack is fully submerged in a dielectric
coolant, which is circulated through the battery casing, inverter and
motor via a small electric pump. No other motorcycle uses a liquid
cooled battery – all our competition uses air cooled packs, even if
they employ a liquid cooled motor.
Curtiss’ liquid cooled solution is safer and more efficient, and will
show the way forward for EV motorcycle design.
