The Confederate X132 Hellcat Combat Motorcycle
The fastest big block V-twin motorcycle in the world, the Confederate X132 Hellcat Combat motorcycle is finally going into limited series production. The 172.2 mph world speed record was set by James Hoegh at the Bonneville Salts during last summer, reportedly equating the asphalt speed of 200 mph.
This stunning 2-wheeler boasts with a 2,163 cc engine which delivers a massive 160 HP, tied to a 5 speed transmission. It is, at the same time, extremely light, weighing just 500 lbs – this is in fact the reason for which the X132 is able to reach those speeds. In addition, to be able to effectively drive it to a halt, Confederate Motorcycles have also fitted it with a set of Brembo brakes at the rear and Beringer brakes at the front.
Only 136 bikes will ever go into production, sadly, but will fortunately be delivered worldwide. The price tag per unit hasn’t yet been disclosed though.
