Confederate Motorcycles Unveils The P120 Fighter Combat.

p120fighterMatt Chambers, CEO and founder of Confederate Motors, has always designed custom motorcycles representing the antithesis of mass production. His bespoke creations embody the credo “Art of Rebellion”, where as he states “preconceptions are purposefully rejected and innovation embraced in our uncompromising approach to excellence”.

The luxury motorcycle manufacturing company is introducing their new design called P120 Fighter Combat incorporating a massive 120ci motor (1966cc) into a lightweight p120fighter1aluminum frame, producing an astounding 145 foot pounds of torque and 160 rear wheel horsepower. Quite a breathtaking creation. A true representation of 2-wheel high performance and of functional art. If you want to see/hear/smell its fumes from close, your 1st chance will be at the Quail Motorsports Gathering this August during the world-renowned Pebble Beach Car Week. The seminal event will take place Friday, August 14th, on the greens of the Quail Lodge golf course in Carmel Valley, California. And if you wonder, no, Matt Chambers didn’t give me a price for the privilege of owning one of these Confederate P120 Fighter Combat. Confederate Motors

    I like it. Always been a fan of confederate & always interested in what they come up with next. Thinking outside the box in a mechanical sense is what I like the most. Seat looks unforgiving though.

    While I certainly can appreciate the time and engineering of this bike, I just don’t find it attractive. A difference in taste is all… I find more beauty in taking a complex piece of machinery and making it look clean & simple, rather than taking a machine and try to make it look even more complicated.
    There are a lot of pieces in that front end just to facilitate a few inches of up-down motion, seems overcomplicated and bulky.
    Still, very industrial looking, and I suppose that was the point.

    Industrial design has always had a following. This is certainly a great example of that. It is very “Swiss watch” like. The Patek Philippe of motorcycles! Personally, I think ID is super cool and definitely miles apart from off the shelf, cookie cut customs of today, not that there is anything wrong with the cool and affordable less expensive customs and bobbers, but if one is willing to spend the money to be different on 2 wheels, this amazing looking machine would be a great choice! Sure would like to see one on the road!

    Are you bringing this bike to Sturgis? I would love to shoot if for publication in the European Harley and custom magazines I wok for.

    The bike looks awesome!

    ironically, the engine (the heart of all things mechanical) gets “lost” with everything else going on (at least in pictures)

    It should be entered in Robin Bradley’s Sturgis show and maybe America would have awinner fora change!

    Incredible in and of itself. The fact that it’s American makes it astounding. This drives me to want to fly the Stars & Stripes with immense pride. I’ve got to believe that with design and performance like this Confederate will be bought by a European or other foreign manufacturer in the not to distant future. Regardless, pretty damn impressive.

    I own an older hellcat that I took in on trade on a chopper, I have always loved the style…….Go Confederate!

    My dream bike has always been a Hellcat. I’ll cherish my memories riding one around Daytona along with the Confererate crew. What a blast! It’s a masterpiece. This new bike is outstanding. Confederate has been the leader in so many cool custom approaches.

    As always, a really cool looking front end.

    “the engine gets “lost” with everything else going on…”

    putting the word lost in quotations infers you mean something else. people use quotation marks to distance themselves from a word or phrase or to show that they are using it ironically. what is so ironic about this bike, hank? regardless, you’ve never seen a v-twin before? why do we need to see this one? i see enough. what else is there? a transmission? a primary? who cares. dudes who ride sportbikes can’t see any of these things and they don’t care, either. why does a v-twin need neon lights all over it screaming “i have 120 cubic inches!” like it’s rotating on a stage in a titty bar?

    okay. i’m just going to start ranting now. let it go, man. ohm….

    i love confederate motorcycles and have since i first saw one in early 2000. matt chambers and his design team have come up with more incredible takes on the american v-twin than anybody has come close to achieving.

    billy lane? let’s weld more stuff on it from a 1939 ford. exile? clean parts on standard bikes. zero? same bike, different paint job. god bless them all. they’re my favorites. but confederate is better. way.

    since vincent (yes, a british bike), who has created a front end as unique as this? i want to see a dozen photos and a breakaway schematic of it now. is there a shock or is it all in the multiple connections, each taking a little of the bump as it transfers to the next connection? resistance.

    and that frame! sweet merciful lord. some have likened the fighter models to a design movement called steam punk. i disagree. steam punk design harkens back to industrial age technology and is retrospective in it’s foundation. this motorcycle is even older than that. it’s a right triangle. it’s like the pyramids. in steel. with wheels.

    and it will kick your ass.
