Motorcycle review: Confederate Motor's P120 Fighter



mics are part of a scene others like the p120 fighter are the scene cranking 160 horsepower from it's 120 cubic inch radial twin Confederate motors latest not only guns it and runs it it blazes a distinct and stylized path and American motorcycling this is the Black Flag version of the P 120 fighter and clearly it doesn't look like anything else out there on the road what's cool about Confederate from a design point of view is that they really challenged every single piece on the bike and think of why does it even have to look the way it does why does it have to go where it does it takes 120 hours to assemble the 480 parts on the fighter and many of those parts aren't found in the usual places the underslung dual exhaust puffs onto the riders gear shifting foot the oil tank is a canister just below the handlebars with Windows on either side that show the 2050 oil the p120 fighter has a hot rod esque 63 inch wheelbase and a 240 millimeter balloon for a back tire but it's rake and trail are well proportioned so while it didn't exactly corner like a Ducati it didn't send me into oncoming traffic either there's a level of menace to the p120 fighter the transmission drive belt is exposed and good very well if chew off my boots at the pegs weren't placed properly this seat looks like your butt could be stuck in a bear trap but is actually pretty comfortable this is not a bike for the arthritic the clutch is stiff Confederates inspiration for the p120 fighter was the outlaw motorcycle clubs of the 60s outlaw motorcycling being born from world war ii fighter pilots it follows that confederate would look to aircraft for some of the p120 fighters inspiration such as is riveted monocoque backbone bulkhead and fuselage side plate construction which are all made from aircraft grade aluminum the squishy rubber buttons and silver toggle switches that operate the turn signals horn ignition and high beams are more likely to be found in the cockpit of a Piper Cub than a motorcycle starting at 72 grams the p120 fighter isn't cheap nor is it common just 63 will be produced making the p1 20 fighter the perfect level yell for the rich for the los angeles times i'm susan carpenter

  1. The bike looks great, but the way the rider looks when he sits on it reminds me of the It bike from Southpark

  2. Motor cycles fall only under EPA rules so build what you want for instance a 72k pos like this

  3. from what I saw in the video, there were actually many parts that are machined on a CNC mill. It may look sort of thrown together, but the many parts seem to be quite expensive to manufacture, especially if you only produce a few bikes per year.

  14. I have much more respect for a guy with a $400 bike, gets it running and does his own maintenance and rides for the fun and passion of riding. Ride hard, ride safe.
