The F-131 Hellcat
The Hellcat Combat model is a limited edition variant of the second Hellcat series, featuring hand-ported and polished cylinder heads, increased compression ratio, special camshafts and a re-tuned intake system, contributing to a 12% gain in rear wheel horsepower and a 4% increase in torque. Altered suspension compression and rebound damping rates make for superior handling, enhanced feedback and increased rider control, while a new sports seat and Combat-specific finish completes the machine. The result is an exotic balance of power and beauty.
AHEAD OF IT'S TIME
Like the Wraith, this Hellcat is powered by a 45-degree v-twin engine (a ‘radial twin’) that uses a balancer shaft to reduce vibration to the level of a 90-degree v-twin engine. Displacing 131ci (2,147cc), the Hellcat power plant delivers 137bhp at the rear wheel via belt primary drive and a five-speed gearbox.
Unlike the ultra-radical Wraith however, the Hellcat models utilise a conventional welded tubular frame, albeit one optimised for torsional stiffness with the aim of keeping the steering head properly aligned with the swinging arm pivot at all times. Unusually, Confederate chose to make the engine a stressed part of the chassis structure and were awarded an engineering patent for the mounting design. The swinging arm pivot is concentric with the gearbox output shaft, while – uniquely – the exhaust system is routed through the arm’s right-hand leg. Confederate's reputation for ‘no-expense-spared’ approach to motorcycle design is reflected in the choice of running gear: Marzocchi usd forks, Penske shocks, ISR six-pot radial front brake calipers and Blackstone carbon fiber wheels all being part of the package.
The "F"architecture of this Hellcat is very simple, yet incredibly rigid and light. It is the only backbone downtube, cradle based chassis to utilize the powerplant as a stressed member. It is also the last architecture for a crafted series built machine designed entirely by analogue methodology. to a monocoque frame made from 100 percent military-spec billet and a stealth-matte anodized finish.
This particular Confederate Hellcat has been on display in Canada and ridden approximately 600 miles since it was built in 2007.
Recently serviced and ready for delivery to your home! This bike is one of a very few Confederate motorcycles located in Canada and will therefore be most desirable for a new Canadian home.
Since making its trip to the land of the Maple Leaf, the headlight on this rare gem has been replaced, the seat has been lowered and adjusted rearward and the turn signals have been upgraded.
Recently serviced at Calgary Harley Davidson, the bike has new tires, fresh fluids and is ready for some summer fun! This machine is definitely a collector motorcycle that can be ridden, and ridden fast!
