Some might have seen the X132 Hellcat before made by Confederate Motorcycles. If you have not see it nor have ever heard about it let me go over a few of the specs on it. The cost for what you see below is $50,000 bucks, yep that is the cost. It is super fast and has some serious muscle in the 132 cubic inches (2,163 cc); 56° Fuel Injected V-Twin engine. I love the aggressive styling of the gearbox and the naked exhaust. I would be worried that I would burn my leg but that is why we are supposed to wear motorcycle pants and all proper motorcycle attire. There are are many things that really impress me about this motorcycle.
Named after the legendary F6F Hellcat fighter plane of WWII, the X132 Hellcat is the result of an uncompromised design and manufacturing approach. Drawing on the first and second generation Hellcats’ distinctive drag race architecture, the third generation Confederate X132 Hellcat advances that architecture with innovative engineering and avant-garde design.
The centerpiece of this uncompromised approach is the Hellcat’s billet aluminum case. Instead of the usual casting method, the Hellcat’s case is machined from two blocks of billet 6061 aircraft grade aluminum. This new case unites America’s best V-Twin technology and America’s superior powertrain technology into a singularity. Although this material selection and craft methodology is expensive, it is simply the best approach for maximizing strength and guaranteeing permanence. Simply put, the X132 Hellcat is America’s most substantive road bike.
One thing I am really impressed with is the overall quality of the motorcycle and the work that went into it. I have started to see more motorcycles using LED or OLED lights in the headlight, brake lights and turn signals that it is really impressive to see them incorporated in on the solo seat like this.
Overall I have to rate this bobber motorcycle a 4.5 out of 5, I am impressed by the color and the bare bones look that it has to it. It just looks as though the whole motorcycle was CNC’d out of one block of metal. Would I ride this motorcycle? Oh yes I would, I just wish there was some paint on the fenders and the tank to give it a little more style.
