2010 Confederate P120 Fighter Combat

[ad#MotoBanner]

Confederate Motorcycles, the Louisiana-based maker of extremely high-end motorcycles, is all set to publicly unveil their newest model, on August 14th at “The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering” in Carmel, CA.  The new P-120 Fighter Combat is powered by a 1966cc V-Twin engine, that puts out 160HP and 145lb-ft of torque.  As you can see from the pictures below, this model proves once again that Confederate is not…um…enslaved to conventional concepts of motorcycle design.

It’s very…shiny.

No word from  Confederate on what the production number will be.  They have production runs of anywhere from 35 bikes to 150 bikes per model, but whatever the number is, it’s going to be a very small number.  And the price tag will be a very large number, i.e. in the 6-digit range.

Hmmm.  You’d think that when you shell out 100 grand for a motorcycle, you’d at least get wheels matched to the design of the bike, wouldn’t you?  Heck, for that kind of money, you’d kind of expect the motorcycle to have a rear brake, too.

Well, you’d be wrong.

  1. I love Confederate Motorcycles!  They’d be one of my top choices if I was in the market for abstract motorcycle art!  However, if I’m spending that kinda cash on a bike, it better damn well run circles around everything on the track and in the twisties!   For now, I think I’ll save the 50 large, buy a Troy Bayliss Duc and have a bike that is not only art, but actually functions!
    When Confederate can build a bike that can hang with my Ducati — or even an SV650 for that matter — then I’ll be very  impressed.  Until then, I’ll enjoy Confederate Motorcycles as an exercise in machine shop and carbon fiber fabrication art only!

  2. Not only will my Hellcat F131 Combat hang with your Ducati, it’ll kick its sissy ass. Promise.
