I am sure many can remember the times when a trusted adult told you not to judge a book by it’s cover. Any motorcycle to come out of the Confederate design house embodies that phrase. Many could be mistaken to pass it off as just another chopper. Something that is all style and no substance. It takes time to notice the details like carbon fiber wheels, Brembo brakes, adjustable suspension and a 131 cubic inch motor making over 160hp at the tire. The construction gives a sense of heft with all the billet work. Once again the mistake could be made that all the solid chunks of metal mean this is a heavy bike. At under 460 pounds it is not going to impress a new Ducati Superleggera for sure, but it is no heavy weight from Harley. The P120 fighter is an extremely bold motorcycle, so it can be excused if it was hard to get down to the details. Spending time pouring over the details is well rewarded though. Sight glasses for the oil and gas tanks offer an interesting view. The looks are as polarizing as the name, but these have a reputation for amazing quality and an unmatched experience on the road.
Never an inexpensive prepossession, new models routinely cross the six figure mark and it appears that owners are very loyal as many do not end up on the used market. At the time of writing the bids were over $17,000 and the reserve had not been meet. Details are limited as with anything this rare, but there have been examples selling in the $50-60,000 range. One thing is for sure, you will not see many of these out in the wild!
From the seller’s eBay listing
I am selling one the most incredible motorcycles ever built! This bike is brand new and has not been ridden since I purchased from the factory! It has been garage kept (heated during winter months) and has never seen rain! Everything is in perfect shape brand new! This bike is a Limited Edition #16 of only 50 manufactured and is the first P120 installed with a 131 ci motor from Confederate Motors. This is a very special opportunity to own a very rare bike. Look at the odometer only 530 miles!
