Erstwhile New Orleans now Birmingham, Alabama-based Confederate Motorcycles have made a solid name for themselves designing custom bikes that drop jaws on concrete, much like their C3 X132 Hellcat. Now they’ve released images of their latest iteration — the R131 Fighter. The R131 sets itself apart from other Confederate creations via its aircraft-grade aluminum construction — making it even lighter than the X132, which was the calling card of that Hellcat. The R131 also sheds pounds via lightweight carbon fiber wheels, and stops them with 4-piston Brembo brakes. Weighing in at only 460 lbs and powered by a massive 2146 CC lump, you can expect the black beauty will be able to stretch its legs. As usual for the esteemed handbuilt manufacturer, Confederate will only make 10 R131 Fighters… at a cost of $100,000 each.
