Ed Jacobs, who was the head of design for the P120 Fighter, started with a clean sheet and ended with a bike that is as outrageous as it is minimalistic. Carved from 6061 aluminum, the P120 Fighter features a raw metal finish that is nothing short of epic.
A thick tubular spine defines the unique style of the bike, blending with a girder front fork and beefy double-sided swingarm out back. It rolled out of Confederate’s factory with top-shelf components, notably those BST carbon fiber wheels.
The 19” front wheel is shod with Pirelli Night Dragon rubber sized 120/70, while the 18” rear wheel features Pirelli Diablo rubber sized 240/40. Exposed carbon fiber fenders are fitted at both ends.
Brembo supplies stopping power with a four-piston front caliper and two-piston rear clamping drilled aluminum-ceramic composite rotors, sized 300 mm up front and 260 mm out back. Damping comes from Race Tech adjustable monoshocks at both ends.
Trick design aspects include the lack of a traditional fuel tank, instead the frame houses four gallons of gas and four and a half quarts of oil. Additionally, the fuel pump and majority of electrical components are concealed within the swingarm yoke.
The current, and original, owner invested some $25,000 to upgrade and improve this P120 Fighter. That includes dual, horizontal LED headlights to replace the factory halogens, Rizoma LED turn signals, a rear license plate frame with LED lighting, and heat shield under the fuel tank.
As well, a Motogadget tachometer and M-Unit Blue controller were fitted as part of this work. The 8,000-rpm tachometer features inset LED indicators and a multi-function digital display with speedometer and odometer that reads 4,768 km (2,963 mi).
The M-Unit Blue digital controller monitors and manages the P120’s vitals and enables remote control, via smartphone, of functions including the alarm, “Keyless Go”, lights, and horn.
Per the owner, there is no rust present on the bike and no history of paint or bodywork.
Power Cruiser Defined
Known for their state-of-the-art motorcycle engines, California-based JIMS supplied the 1966 cc radial twin mill that put down 160 hp and 135 lb.-ft when new. Mounted in a case cast from 8356 aluminum, it pairs to a stacked-shaft five-speed gearbox that spins the rear wheel via chain drive.
During the $25,000 service performed in 2021, a host of upgrades to the fuel, cooling, and electrical systems were completed. This included a new heavy-duty fuel pump, installation of a JIMS Black ForceFlow cylinder head fan kit, new heavy-duty starter motor, full wiring harness, and replacement switches. The oil and battery were also changed at the time.
Full-service records are available from Kreater Custom Motorcycles in Toronto, Ontario. According to the owner, there are no known issues with this P120 Fighter.
1 of 50
Located in Toronto, Ontario, this 2011 Confederate P120 Fighter Combat motorcycle was purchased new by the seller, who imported it to Canada at the time. It currently shows 4,768 original km (2,963 mi). Aside from the $25,000 in upgrades detailed above, it is an all-original example with a clean Ontario title.
It is obvious at a glance that this is a truly special bike. Hand-built, Confederate only created 50 of these beauties and today’s example is number 8 as seen in the roman numerals machined into the frame. Fast, bespoke, badass, and jaw-dropping are all fair descriptors of this exceptionally rare motorcycle. Don’t let it get away.
