Post-Sale Update: After being relisted, this Confederate P120 Fighter Combat sold for $70,000 on eBay.
Ever since we started Bike-urious, we’ve been waiting to feature this bike. We all love the Confederate Fighter an inordinate amount – in fact one of our staff members finally decided to get a bike after seeing this picture:
The all-aluminum, all-American bodywork is incredibly distinctive, and incredibly fast. Weighing a relatively svelte 460 pounds, the Fighter is powered by a 1966cc radial twin engine that produces 160 horsepower at the rear wheel. There’s no tank, per se, though four gallons of fuel and 4.5 quarts of oil are hidden away in the frame.
Confederate made two versions of the Fighter – the P120 and the R131. The seller confuses us by calling his bike a P131, so we’re not 100% sure which model he’s actually offering. The frame says P120, yet the engine says R131. There’s a big difference: the P120 (only 120 were built in 2011) had a MSRP of $72,000, while the R131 sold for $100,000, and was a limited edition – only 10 silver and 10 black examples were sold of the R131 in 2011.
This specific Confederate Fighter has just 109 miles and looks to be in excellent shape. Confusingly, the seller says it has not been ridden since he purchased it from the factory. We don’t understand how it got 109 miles from the factory, but that’s a question for potential buyers to ask. It seems that this bike it’s basically brand new, so you’re just going to have to adopt it and give it the life it deserves on the road.

We can’t say we like this bike nearly as much as the Fighter, but the seller is also offering a 2013 Confederate Hellcat X132 . Post-Sale Update: After being relisted, this Hellcat did not meet reserve at $39,100.
