Confederate motors has been building ambitiously designed, hand-assembled motorcycles since 1991, but for its latest creation, the Birmingham, Ala.--based manufacturer has introduced a new platform that eliminates many of the complicated steps involved with building its earlier bikes. For the new X132 Hellcat, instead of mounting the powerplant onto the frame with bushings, the Confederate crew locks the engine's CNC-machined case directly to the frame, using it as a stressed member. Confederate, which developed the design over a three-year period with engine builder S&S, calls the architecture "X-Vault."
