190 mph for only $110K
Don’t expect to see the 2009 Confederate Fighter parked next to you at the next red light. In fact, unless you’re willing to fork over the cash (and you have some great connections) odds are you’ll never get to see one up close. And too bad, for this is a street-legal sci-fi dream come true.
You must know you have something special when you have even non-bike enthusiasts drooling. The Fighter joins the first 31 BMW 7 Series models and is featured in limited edition in the Neiman Marcus Christmas book.
And when they say limited edition, they mean it. There will be 45 created and then there will be no more.
The basic premise of the bike is similar in principle to the rest of the brand’s wares, but the details really make this one stand out. Like the Wraith, the Confederate Fighter uses a front suspension made up of titanium, aluminum and carbon fiber bits and a 120ci 45-degree air-cooled V-Twin.
The company claims a top speed of 190 miles per hour, but that may be just a tad optimistic considering that the Wraith managed a land-speed record of just a tad over 166mph at the Bonneville Salt Flats.
But for the price of a foreclosed home, you’d expect a little more protection for your nether regions (look at that seat!). I can only imagine the fall-out should you hit a big pothole on this beast.
