The Confederate X132 Hellcat Speedster Motorcycle

Named after the legendary F6F Hellcat fighter plane of WWII, the X-132 Hellcat is the result of an uncompromised design and manufacturing approach.

The centerpiece of this uncompromised approach is the Hellcat’s billet aluminum case. Instead of the usual casting method, the Hellcat’s case is machined from two blocks of billet 6061 aircraft grade aluminum.

The motorcycle is hand built, weighs only 500 lbs and is propelled by a potent 2,163 cc, 56° fuel injected V-Twin engine with 4.4” Bore x 4.4” Stroke.The engine puts out a maximum power of 121 hp and 140 foot pounds of torque.

All this power is routed to the rear wheel by means of a five speed drag racing transmission.The shift action of the five-speed Confederate X132 Hellcat Speedster’s gearbox is quite positive, swapping ratios smoothly, except from second to first when there’s a big clunk each time you go through neutral while downshifting.

The new model shares many elements with the initial Hellcat roadster, but it comes with a completely fresh design and plenty of other unique features.Chassis highlights include the 48mm WP fork, Beringer four-piston monoblock brake calipers with dual floating rotors, and BlackStone Tek carbon-fiber wheels. Only 65 units will be produced.
