We previously featured the amazing Confederate third generation Hellcat, but bike-building maestros Confederate Motorcycles have notched another feather in their mechanical cap with the launch of the awesome X132 Hellcat Combat.
In August, Confederate Motorcycles collector James Hoegh set a record when he drove the X132 prototype at an average top speed of 172.211mph on the Salts of Bonneville, which makes it the world’s fastest big block V-twin.
Confederate Motorcycles have created a limited edition production line of the X132 prototype. Its appearance makes a statement without uttering a syllable. It looks like it is ready to storm the Bastille at the drop of the hat. A mash-up of an apocalyptic demeanour and post-modernistic flair suggests an exclamation mark of unquestionable original innovation. Confederate Motorcycles have unleashed the beast… 36 units of this beast to be precise
This monster has a 2163cc, 160bhp engine that will get you to some intense moments and up to 200mph on the road. It weighs 500lbs and has the bite to back up the looks. It also features carbon fibre five-spoke wheels and stops on a dime thanks to the rear Brembo and front Beringer brakes. At $72 000, it ain’t no cheapy but it is one heck of a bike and buying one puts you in a position to own a piece of history.
