2012 Confederate X132 Hellcat Review: See Me, Hear Me, Feel Me

Confederate Black Flag Review

What if your motorcycle budget swelled to $54,450?

Would you snag a couple of CVOs? Maybe splurge on a fleet of five crotch rockets? Or would you go for one crown jewel like Confederate's X132 Hellcat with its carbon fiber wheels, minimal steel frame, and hulking 2,163cc v-twin powerplant that starts life as a 400 pound block of aircraft grade aluminum before it's reduced to 37 pounds of billet goodness?

If you're looking for an excuse to opt for the latter, you may just get swayed by my 2012 Confederate X132 Hellcat Review: See Me, Hear Me, Feel Me.

That’s WAY out of most people’s budget and frankly I think it’s kind of ugly. All of that empty space behind the incredibly tiny seat makes it look “unfinished” somehow. That gap ruins the lines and look of the bike. If I had $54,000 to blow I buy a 2013 Ninja 1400 and a decked out BMW touring bike and I’d have enough left to fill them both with 106 octane premium!

I’m still paying a mortgage in Manhattan, but I’m thinking of my future and ginormous cash flow when I can get out of this place. Something like this looks like fun.

I do agree, it’s silly, especially now when my fellow New Yorkers need a hand.

What Kev said.
If I was rolling in cash, despite the fact it is kind of cool in a Milwaukee 1966 kind of way, I have a list toys that would move this to a distant 30th or 40th place.
The workmanship looks to be above absolutely first class.
