When it comes to unique works of art on two wheels, Confederate Motorcycles is considered one of the most important “artists” from the streets and it is pretty safe to say that its creations are true masterpieces. And there is no wonder why, because the company’s motorcycles have always impressed us in terms of looks, performances and ride and handling abilities.

The latest model launched by the company is called the X132 Hellcat Speedster and was designed by Pierre Terblanche. The motorcycle is hand built, weighs only 500 lbs and is propelled by a potent 2,163 cc, 56° fuel injected V-Twin engine with 4.4” Bore x 4.4” Stroke. The engine puts out a maximum power of 121 hp and 140 foot pounds of torque. All this power is routed to the rear wheel by means of a five speed drag racing transmission.

The new model shares many elements with the initial Hellcat roadster, but it comes with a completely fresh design and plenty of other unique features.

The bike rides on a pair of tasty looking, 18 inch, carbon fiber wheels which are wrapped in front Metzeler ME 880 Marathon 120/70 ZR18 and rear Metzeler Marathon 240/40 VR18 tires.

You also get a stylish solo seat wrapped in leather, carbon fiber fenders and LED lights.

The stopping power is handled by front dual Beringer 4 piston machined monobloc Aerotec radial calipers and rear single Beringer 4 piston machined monobloc Aerotec radial calipers.

The Confederate X132 Hellcat Speedster can be yours for no less than 65,000 USD.

Confederate Motor Company has presented to the public its third amazing example of Hollywood-worthy design and engineering in the form of the 2010 Confederate P120 Fighter. Even after the Hellcat and Wraith models, the P120 Fighter still looks like an alien rode it here from another planet. At least that’s what the crowd at the Quail Lodge seemed to be thinking this past weekend. The friends at autoblog were there and caught some nice pictures of the new bike, a 120 units Combat Edition.

Although it is scary enough from a standstill, the Confederate P120 Fighter relies on 160 hp and 145 foot-pounds of torque to keep things interesting once on its seat and it is all due to the 120-cubic-inch (1966cc) V-Twin motor. That’s the only thing that looks familiar on the bike.

Confederate Motorcycles has recently unveiled a new motorcycle model, the P120 Fighter, which is built in the same style as the Wraith model. A serious piece of motoring in the true meaning of the word, the Fighter is powered by a 1966cc V-twin motor mounted on an aluminum frame. The company was kind enough to release the performance figures and we must say that they are anything but disappointing: 160hp and 145lbs•ft of torque.

As Confederate fans already got used to, the new bike features mostly polished hard parts that make it look like one of those transformers bikes and the giant carbon front spars aren’t absent either.

The Confederate P120 Fighter can be admired/criticized at the Quail Motorsports Gathering in Carmel, California on August 14th. The price hasn’t been announced yet, so you won’t mention that in your list of amazing things about it.

Although dedicated to cars, the New York Auto Show was the proper environment in which Confederate Motor Company to exhibit three of their most recent creations that are also know as the indestructible bikes from Terminator 4. Named Fighter, Hellcat and Wraith, these bikes do look like complicated pieces of engineering, but not quite like having minds of their own or being that hard to destroy. And if it is to take in consideration the Company’s fame for providing pretty unreliable bikes, I say stick to the movie.

Looking for that perfect Christmas presents (for yourself, of course) can always turn out a little tricky, especially if you’re a demanding and ostentatious kind of person. But, if you dig deep enough and get to the Neiman Marcus Christmas book, you have all the changes to declare yourself satisfied. There, you will find that the Confederate Fighter motorcycle was produced in a limited number of 45 exemplars and, after you get out of trance, start wondering about its outrageous features.

A good thing to start with is the 1966cc 45-degree radial twin engine that is clamed to be capable of powering the bike up to 190mph. The chassis is a titanium backbone unit and it connects directly to the front and rear billet aluminum bulkheads in order to withstand at that kind of speeds.

The Confederate Fighter is also fitted with a girder-style front suspension made up of titanium as well as aluminum and carbon fiber bits. Wheelbase is 64" and seat height 27" so you’re in for low riding…that is if you can afford paying $110,000 on a motorcycle. Or better yet, if you are the kind of guy that actually invests that kind of money in its image as a whole bunch of much cheaper motorcycles can reach that kind of speeds. But they don’t make you look like a robot so what the heck.
