Confederate Motorcycles will collaborate with Zero Motorcycles and they have set up a concept named as Hercules that uses battery power. President of Confederate Motorcycles, Matt Chambers, said the company has taken a transformative step.

The company is partnered with Zero Motorcycles which has produced electric street bikes. Hercules will be driven by a Zero Zero electric motor and produce 175 horsepower and 290 pound-feet of torque.

Chambers also said the company is now named Curtiss Motorcycles to commemorate Glenn Curtiss who made motorcycle speed records in the early 1900s. The first motorcycle will likely be made at the Zero's Scotts Valley facility.
