It’s a motorcycle most of us might never get to see on the road. Made like its hugely successful predecessor the Confederate X132 Hellcat, this new Confederate G2 P51 Combat Fighter is inspired by the 1960’s rebel and anti-hero Hunter S Thompson and the stripped, raw, chopper he rode. This second-generation Combat Fighter rides on a brand new CX4 architecture, a lighter, tougher evolution of Confederate’s patented, drag racing derived powertrain and powertrain mounting system.
This exercise in muscle bike purity is built entirely of 6061 aerospace billet aluminum, right down to the unitized engine block and heads. Overbuilt machined fuselage plates located by machined bulkheads form a proprietary monocoque that is claimed to be the stiffest, most fatigue-resistant and lightest chassis capable of housing the greatest amount of torque as a percentage of weight ever achieved in all of motordom. It looks like no expense was spared in the design and creative process, adhering to Confederate’s mandate of only developing the best and finest achievable.
Confederate leveraged the talents of original P51 head designer Jon Kasse, who facilitated the second generation model’s all new head design and induction system. The result is the achievement of a goal that the company has sought since its inception: 200 big-block, air-cooled, push-rod, V-twin horsepower.
The new bike’s chassis incorporates a structural intake box that ties directly into a CNC billet aluminum structural downdraft intake manifold, an industry first. The fuel tank is structural; huge billet blocks are machined and masterfully welded to create the bridge that connects the induction system to the massive swing arm pivot machined into the unitized billet engine cases. Each front suspension girder and the rear swing arm are hewn from huge blocks of solid, as well, via five axis machining technology, to optimize structural integrity and fatigue resistance while minimizing un-sprung weight.
A total of 61 Confederate G2 P51 Combat Fighter Special Editions are scheduled to be crafted: 31 will be designated blonde and presented as raw machined billet; 30 will be designated black and presented as raw machined billet anodized black.
MSRP for the blonde is $113,900 USD (AED 418,253); MSRP for the black is $119,500 USD (AED 438,817).
