CONFEDERATE X132 HELLCAT SPEEDSTER: IN THE SIGN OF TERBLANCHE
South African Pierre Terblanche is one of the most visionary and ambitious motorcycle designers who over the years has become famous thanks to extremely innovative creations as the Ducati 999 and the Cagiva 900 Gran Canyon.
Its fame is in fact due to the long period of work spent in Italy collaborating with Cagiva, Ducati and Moto Guzzi but in 2013, after a catastrophic working relationship with the British Norton, Terblanche was hired by the American Confederate to develop a new bobber.
Called X132 Hellcat Speedster, it was based on a steel frame with an X structure and was equipped with a S&S 2.1 twin-cylinder engine with a power of 120 hp with a torque of 189 Nm managed by a five-speed gearbox.
Numerous components, such as the 11-liter tank and the BlackStone Tek rims, were made of carbon to contain the weight and WP suspensions were combined with a Beringer braking system.
Produced in a limited series of 65 specimens, it was sold at the astronomical price of 65,000 dollars due to the high build quality.
