Confederate Motors Inc. recently unveiled their latest machine – the P120 Fighter Combat – at the Quail motorsports gathering in Carmel, during the Pebble Beach car week. Why unveil a motorcycle at what’s essentially a car event? ‘Considering the level of discerning motorsport enthusiasts gathered from around the world in one place at one time, we could not think of a better forum at which to unveil our cutting-edge Fighter Combat,’ says Matt Chambers, CEO and founder, Confederate Motors. Oh, well...

The Confederate P120 Fighter Combat – only 120 units of which will be built – is fitted with a 1,966cc twin-cylinder engine that produces 160 horsepower (measured at the rear wheel) and 182Nm of torque. The bike’s monocoque chassis is made of aircraft-grade aluminium and the P120 weighs 207kg.

The gearbox is a close-ratio five-speed unit and the suspension is comprised of a double wishbone setup at the front and fully adjustable monoshock at the back. Brakes are from Brembo, with carbon-ceramic discs and radial-mount four-piston callipers. The bike rides on 19-inch (front) and 18-inch (rear) wheels, and the top speed... ...probably doesn't matter.
