The brand we used to know as Confederate Motorcycles has just dropped a bike-shaped bomb on the motorcycle community….literally. They’re calling it the Bomber, based off of the original FA-13 unit – and heads up, the cost of this particular piece of power floats just north of £100k / $123,579 USD.
Let’s get into it.
Combat Motors is known for its aesthetically extreme, US-centric bikes. Back when we covered the debut of the Wraith – a gorgeous machine with a limited run of 21 units costing no less than $155,000 USD – the sheer commitment to quality and attention to detail blew us away.
Now, the all-new Bomber – an homage to the company’s OG FA-13 Bomber – is taking the front-and-center stage for the company’s 2022 lineup as “complet[ing] the package with a new, laid-back seat angle coupled with forward controls to make this bike the cruiser to lead all cruisers,” according to MCN’s coverage.
Perks of the Bomber include the S&S air-cooled V-twin, as well as the unique, handmade (aluminum) monocoque chassis that shows off a Hossack-style front-end.
(Norman Hugh Hossack, in case you didn’t know, is a Scottish inventor and engineer that invented the patented Hossack front suspension system, which Wikipedia states is still used on some BMW Motorrad K series motorcycles to this day.)
It’s a novel system, with the end result of Combat’s integration being a rolling work of art that guarantees (harder than any bike brand I know) that you won’t be a cruising wallflower with this one.
The Bomber is available in raw aluminum – yum – or all-black, with the other members of the lineup (the “long-popular Wraith, F117 Fighter, and P51 Fighter”) striking the perfect balance between raw beauty and aggression.
