Confederate Creates P51 Combat Fighter Second Generation

Confederate Motors built a second generation of the P51 Combat Fighter. The motorcycle has 200 HP and weights 226 kilograms.

Confederate Motors kept the best features from the first generation model and together with a couple of nods from the Confederate X132 Hellcat created the P51 Combat Fighter second generation. Every Confederate motorcycle is special in its own way, but this project is different. It’s unique because this bike is Pierre Terblanche’s last work at the Southern company, before heading to Royal Enfield.

Talking about this bike, Confederate says that inspiration came from the “1960’s rebel, anti-hero and the stripped, raw, chopper he rode.” Following the brand’s tradition, Confederate P51 Combat Fighter second generation will be bespoke to each owner.

Confederate P51 Combat Fighter second generation has a 2,163cc 56° v-twin engine with a squared bore and stroke. The CX4 engine is capable to produce 200 HP+ and 230,48 Nm (170 lbs-ft) of torque, all unleashed by a five-speed transmission.

Other features include a solid-disc carbon fiber rear wheel and a five-spoke carbon fiber front wheel. Together with the 6061-T6 billet aluminum chassis, the motorcycle’s weight is reduced to 226.79 kilograms (500 pounds).

The front suspension has a double-wishbone girder setup, while the rear is conventional. Coilover shocks with high-speed and low-speed compression, as well as rebound damping were used for the bike’s suspension.
