*About the 2021 Glenn H. Curtiss Founders Edition

Heritage

In 1906, Glenn H. Curtiss received an order for two air-cooled V8 engines to power an experimental aircraft. Intrigued by the possibilities of a lightweight 4000cc, 40 horsepower engine, Curtiss built an additional unit to install into a motorcycle frame.

Curtiss took this incredible machine to Ormond Beach, Florida in January 1907 and set an absolute world speed record of 136.36 miles per hour, making Glenn Curtiss the fastest man on Earth – no vehicle on land, sea or air was faster than Curtiss on that day.

Curtiss’ record-shattering V8 motorcycle today resides in the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum collection, the only motorcycle significant and precious enough to hold a spot among the Smithsonian’s priceless examples of human ingenuity.
