Despite its young age, Confederate was probably one of the best representatives of American talent at making impressive and extraordinary bikes. Yes, Harley Davidson and Indian represent American motorcycle history but Confederate really put America’s best technology, industrial, and crafting skills at work. Among the gems created by the brand, the Fighter model is probably one of the most monumental.
The Fighter, like most of Confederate’s bikes, was a power-cruiser. The aluminum monocoque is brought to life thanks to a 1,965cc V-Twin developing 160hp, powering a total weight of 460 lbs. Heavy for a sportbike, but a featherweight compared to the usual American cruiser. Head Designer Ed Jacob explains that the goal of the bike was to create a straight line from the handlebar to the swingarm pivot with a full aluminum chassis integrating the engine as a stressed member. With Race Tech shocks, Brembo radial brakes, and even Motogadget electrical components, Confederate did not leave any part of the bike un-perfected.
