With a design gestalt inspired by fierce individualism and an aesthetic approach referred to as “skeletal minimalism,” Louisiana-based Confederate Motorcycles laid siege to the competition with the debut of its G2 P51 Combat Fighter last year. Designed by Jon Kaase (who was responsible for the original P51 Fighter from 2009), the second-generation Combat version is 25-percent more powerful and 12.5-percent lighter than its predecessor.
Featuring the company’s proprietary monocoque construction made completely of 6061 aerospace billet aluminum, the 500-pound road warrior comes armed with a big-block V-twin engine firing off 200 ft lbs of torque and more than 200 hp. Only 17 of the 61 examples planned to be produced (one at a time) are still available and are priced at $125,000 displayed in raw aluminum and $130,000 in anodized black. (confederate.com)
