Futuristic P120 Fighter Combat Edition Bike by Confederate Motor Company Unleashed
Alabama-based luxury bike manufacturer Confederate Motor Company has just unleashed its new P120 Fighter Combat motorcycle at the Quail Motorsports Gathering in Carmel, California. The bike features the company’s signature “pure and direct” form with an aircraft grade aluminum frame, extended swing-arm and futuristic design that is somewhat reminiscent of the Moto-Terminators. The P120 features all high-end components, almost exclusively designed by Confederate save for a few pieces such as the brakes which are sourced from Brembo. And with a 160 hp engine, it has more than enough power to boot. As the name somewhat implies, only 120 examples of the Confederate P120 Fighter Combat motorcycle will be produced.
Confederate’s description of the motorcycle:
The Fighter clarifies opaqueness and nullifies hype with straight-forward true to concept certitude. At the source is a classic right triangle. Proportion is classically derived. Scale is middle way. Bearing exudes structural permanence. Human integration deploys yang energy, vitality, and power in the most simple, pure and direct form. Geometry is optimized for the medium and/or long disciplined journey of sensory heightened motion. Torque to weight is maximized. Engine, suspension and ergonomic luxury and ease of use is optimized. Materials utilization is the finest. Individual piece and component specification is highest and best.
Craft preparation and specification is uncompromised. The aesthetic is fresh, industrial, sculptural, holistic and honest. The saddle of the Fighter is your place for those outings which require extended time, geography, meditation and distance. Personal liberation will result!
