Spank my butt and call me a traditionalist. I respect the desire to innovate...not sure I'd choose to ride this. Wonder what it's like in a crosswind? Perhaps Confederate will bump Triumph and we'll see it in MI4? Anyway, tell us what you think.

It's pretty wild. I was at their shop in Alabama a couple months ago. Really cool guys. It is supposed to be their "entry level" bike as far as price. I don't think it's quite my style.

Yeah, I mean, "Total Respeck" and all that...at least the Hellcat still looks like a bike. I guess it's not too surprising that folks on a Triumph classics forum would show some ambivalence about the crazy Confederate bikes.

I also hate to think what the "tank" would do to you in an accident.

Rodburner and Mancha, you guys are funny.

The hellcat is ridiculously expensive, but it's my dream bike. When you sit on that beast everything feels so right. The position of the handle bars and foot pegs. The monster motor, the new speedo & tach is one unit with two needles! All that carbon fiber and machined metal is just awesome. All that for a mere 67,000. When I have tons of money there would definitely be a hellcat in my garage.

Their 'Wraith' model is my favorite. The newest B120 version has a natural aluminum colored fuselage (that's what they call it), but I like the look of the all black B91 better. Looks good no matter what color, though...







Edit: I had to replace the pictures. The site I was linking them from stopped working.
