Confederate P51 Combat Fighter, Second Generation

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Confederate Motors is making some of the most intriguing and evocative custom motorcycles on the market right now, and the company’s second-generation Confederate P51 Combat Fighter is no different.

Taking some cues from the first-generation Fighter, as well as a couple nods from the Confederate X132 Hellcat, the Confederate G2 P51 Combat Fighter not only encapsulates everything good about the Confederate Motors brand, but it’s also Pierre Terblanche’s last work at the Southern company, before heading to Royal Enfield.

Confederate says that the G2 P51 Combat Fighter draws inspiration from the “1960’s rebel, anti-hero and the stripped, raw, chopper he rode.” The custom certainly is sinister in its look, especially in the blacked-out version. Oh, did we mention is boasts over 200hp at the rear wheel?

Like all Confederate machines, these P51 Combat Fighters will be bespoke to each owner, of which there will be only 61 units made. MSRP for the blonde model is is $113,900 (30 units in total), while the brunette will cost you $119,500 (31 units to be produced). More photos and details after the jump.

If you want specifics, at the heart of the new Fighter is a 132ci (2,163cc) 56° v-twin engine, with a squared bore and stroke. Confederate says the CX4 engine is good for 200hp at the rear wheel, with 170 lbs•ft of torque, all mated to a five-speed transmission.

Other interesting tidbits include the solid-disc carbon fiber rear wheel, matched to a five-spoke carbon fiber front wheel. The front suspension is a double-wishbone girder setup, while the rear is conventional. Both units use a coilover shocks that have high-speed and low-speed compression, as well as rebound damping.

The 6061-T6 billet aluminum chassis wheelbase is of 62.5 inches, with a 3.75 gallons of fuel capacity. Weight is 500 lbs, which is either light or heavy, depending on what sphere you come from.
