Confederate Hellcat X132
CONFEDERATE Motors has launched the 2015 edition of its Hellcat X132 Speedster.
As the bike’s name suggests it is powered by a 132ci V-twin motor. The 56-degree V-twin has a 4.4in stroke and 4.4in bore and is fuelled by a single-side draft intake with a 58mm throttle body to produce a claimed 121hp and 140ft lb of torque. This is matched to a five-speed transmission with the entire package carried in a frame hand welded from 3in steel tubing.
A custom specification WP 48mm fork with adjustable rebound and compression is used at the front of the bike, while rear suspension is taken care of by a rebound and compression adjustable Race Tech coil over.
The wheel package on the latest Hellcat Confederate makes use of Blackstone Tek carbon fiber wheels with proprietary hubs. The 18 x 3.5in front and 18 x 8in rear wheels are shod with 120/70 ZR18 and 240/40 ZR18 Metzeler ME 880 Marathon tires. Braking comes courtesy of dual Beringer Aeronal floating rotors and four-piston monobloc Aerotec radial calipers at the front and a single four-piston monobloc Aerotec radial caliper at the rear, with a Brembo rotor.
Bodywork on the Hellcat, which is limited to 65 production models, is made up of carbon fiber fenders and an aerospace composite carbon fiber fuel cell with finishing details including LED lighting, a digital speedo and a Motogadget analog tacho.
