Headquartered in Alabama, Confederate Motorcycles follows in no other company’s tire tracks. Instead, with names like Hellcat, Fighter and Combat, its small lineup of power cruisers pays homage to the pilots of WWII. Tough, militaristic styling and bare-bones functionality positions every Confederate motorcycle model as an essential American machine. Components include an oversized engine, arched-backbone frame, brazen military-industrial design elements, and little else. The X132 Hellcat uses a billet-crankcase 2.2-liter V-twin with a unitized gearbox – stacked gear clusters inside – as a stressed frame member. Built to order, the R131 Fighter is an extreme interpretation of the minimalist formula. All black save a few shiny bits, it has a menacing look that would fit perfectly into a Terminator movie. And lastly, two extremely limited-production Combat models fly even higher with Bonneville competition heritage.
