Confederate Motors, Inc., the premiere American luxury motorcycle manufacturing company, announced their plans to introduce their latest design, the P120 Fighter Combat, to the motoring community at the Quail Motorsports Gathering in Carmel this August during the world-renowned Pebble Beach car week.
"We are thrilled to be a part of this legendary event," said Matt Chambers, CEO and founder of Confederate Motors. "Considering the level of discerning motorsport enthusiasts gathered from around the world in one place at one time, we could not think of a better forum at which to unveil our cutting-edge Fighter Combat."
As with previous Confederate models, the new Fighter should cause a sensation. Incorporating a massive 120ci motor (1966cc) into a lightweight aluminum frame, producing an astounding 145 foot pounds of torque and 160 rear wheel horsepower, the agile and powerful machine also takes Confederate's hallmark design to new heights, resulting in a creation that can only be described as breathtaking.
The Fighter clarifies opaqueness and nullifies hype with straight-forward true to concept certitude. At the source is a classic right triangle. Proportion is classically derived. Scale is middle way. Bearing exudes structural permanence. Human integration deploys yang energy, vitality, and power in the most simple, pure and direct form. Geometry is optimized for the medium and/or long disciplined journey of sensory heightened motion. Torque to weight is maximized. Engine, suspension and ergonomic luxury and ease of use is optimized. Materials utilization is the finest. Individual piece and component specification is highest and best.
Craft preparation and specification is uncompromised. The aesthetic is fresh, industrial, sculptural, holistic and honest. The saddle of the Fighter is your place for those outings which require extended time, geography, meditation and distance. Personal liberation will result!
