limited to just 35 models, the curtiss motorcycle co.’s ‘warhawk’ is said to be a machined aluminum monster. with the brand formerly known as confederate motorcycles and now named after the inventor of the american V-twin engine, glenn curtiss, the design is in fact the first curtiss motorcycle in 105 years. the special edition looks to perfect the original invention, while building upon the designer’s flared industrial aesthetic.
