When on August 12, 09 I introduced you to the Confederate P-120 Fighter Combat, I told you that this new pre-production machine would be on the Salts of Utah looking for a new world record. Myself and a lot of journalists, photographers, film makers spend a lot of time with the Confederate crew around its President Matt Chambers. An opportunity to admire and detail this machine that everybody seems to love for its unique design, raw power and versatility from street to show to race.
A beast that I saw running several times piloted By Jason Reddick already a World Record holder for Confederate in 2007, 2008 and 2009 with an AMA National Record of 166.459 mph. Matt Chambers and team are shooting for 167 mph + to become the new Land Speed Record in their class. Front of me, the Fighter P120 is already running at 156 mph+ and right now this beast is getting a new fine tuning (fuel delivery and change of sprocket from 43 tooth to 39).
I remind you that this new machine Confederate model incorporates a massive 120ci motor (1966cc) into a lightweight aluminum frame, producing an astounding 145 ft/lbs of torque and 160 rear wheel horsepower. Only 25 machines will be produced and delivered to their respective owners beginning November 30th at the pace of two per month, at which point the book will be closed forever. President Matt Chambers estimates that the retail cost of a Fighter Combat (#02-25) will be $75,000. Follow the progress of the bike at Confederate Motor Company
