BIRMINGHAM, Ala.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--As the rebranding from Confederate Motors Inc. to Curtiss Motorcycle Company, Inc. continues, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) announced today that the company’s common stock symbol has changed from CFED to CMOT. Common stock shares in the company are publicly traded on the U.S. OTC Market.
Today’s FINRA announcement comes on the heels of the company’s unveiling of the Curtiss Warhawk, the first new Curtiss Motorcycle released in over 100 years. Sharing a name with its famous World War II fighter plane ancestor, the new Warhawk pays homage to the man who invented the first American V-Twin motorcycle – Glenn Curtiss.

In addition to being the first Curtiss Motorcycle released in over a century, the announcement also marks the last motorcycle of its kind that the company will produce as it transitions from internal combustion to electric propulsion.
“The American V-twin is undoubtedly the most iconic and revered powertrain in motorcycle history,” says Curtiss CEO Matt Chambers. “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.”
