CONFEDERATE Motorcycles have announced it is to add three new bikes to the existing line-up and a new production facility in Birmingham, Alabama.

The brand, once thought to have been lost forever, has announced it is to add the Hellcat, Hellcat Speedster, and Wraith are the new machines to be built at the new Alabama facility. The Hellcat and Hellcat Speedster are also the most interesting new bikes Confederate has released in recent years.

The new FXDR-based Hellcat is Confederates cheapest bike yet at $45,000

Both of those machines use the Harley-Davidson FXDR as a base, utilising that machines frame, suspension and Screaming Eagle 117 Engine, they would stand to be the first confederate machines able to officially hit the UK’s shores. Orders for those bikes are currently being taken ready for delivery in July.

The Confederate Hellcat Speedster is again based on the Harley-Davidson FXDR and will set you back $75,000

Speaking about the new FXDR-based machines, Ernest Lee, owner of Confederate Motorcycles said:

“The Hellcat and the Hellcat Speedster are two new 2020 Confederates built on the Harley Davidson FDXR frame with the Screaming Eagle 117 cubic inch Milwaukee Eight Engine. Because these two Confederate motorcycles are built on a Harley Davidson platform, the new Hellcat and Hellcat Speedster are also the first of the Confederate Motorcycles to be homologated for worldwide delivery."

Confederate will also continue to manufacture the F-117 Fighter, P-51 Combat Fighter and FA-13 Combat Bomber and begin building a newly redesigned Confederate Wraith at the new location. Each of these bikes is built upon the Confederate CX-4 frame, feature an S&S X-Wedge 117 or 132 cubic inch engine, BST wheels, RaceTech suspension, Beringer Brakes, Motogadget electronics, a Bandit clutch and have a frame carved entirely from solid billet blocks of aircraft-grade 6061 and 7075 aluminum built by 3D Systems, resulting in the most robust, fatigue-resistant motorcycle possible.
