New 2011 Confederate C3 X132 Hellcat

The bike will be available in ‘Fighter’ and ‘Roadster’ versi  Other bits on the 2011 Confederate C3 X132 Hellcat include Brembo brakes with carbon-ceramic rotors and four-piston monobloc callipers, 17-inch carbonfibre wheels, high-intensity discharge (HID) headlamp and LED taillamp. There’s a 50mm fork at the front and Racetech monoshock at the back, both ends being fully adjustable for low- and high-speed compression and rebound damping. The powertrain casing is carved from a single-piece, 180-kilo block of aircraft-grade aluminium, the transmission is a five-speed close ratio unit and final drive is via chain. You get a bike that’s fitted with a 2,200cc twin-cylinder S&S Cycle engine that produces 197Nm of torque and “sufficient” (yep, that’s what they claim) horsepower.

What, exactly, do you get for your $45,000? Only 150 units of this machine will be built and 22 of those have already been booked, so your time starts now. An upfront payment of US$2,250 will secure a C3 X132 for your garage and your bike will be delivered by no later than the end of December 2011.  For those with US$45,000 to blow on a high-tech, beautifully made, super-exclusive muscle-cruiser, you can now line up outside Confederate Motorcycles’ office and place an order for the new C3 X132 Hellcat.
