Confederate X132 Hellcat
Confederate Motorcycles are among the most exclusive two-wheeled vehicles on the planet. Their low production numbers, coupled with their hefty price tags, make them the preserve of only the very wealthiest motorcycle aficionados. Now Confederate have unveiled their latest offering. It’s the third generation of their Hellcat model. The Confederate X132 Hellcat, named after the F6F Hellcat fighter plane of WWII, now features an engine which is made entirely in-house.
The 2,200 cc (132 cu.in.) V-twin engine produces 132 horsepower and 150 ft-lbs of torque. It features a machined 6061 Aircraft-Grade billet aluminium case, and is mated to a Confederate-patented close-ratio 5-speed transmission.

Confederate Motorcycle’s founder and CEO, H. Matthew Chambers, described the X132 Hellcat by saying, “This is the motorcycle we were conceived to execute when I founded the company 21 years ago. I have every confidence that we have delivered all we ever dreamed of giving.” Confederate’s lead designer, Edward Jacobs, added, “We’ve always dreamed of designing the core of the machine. For the first time in our 21 year history, we’ve been able to do that with the unitized case of this new Hellcat. The result is the first pure and undiluted Confederate.”
