The two companies will share technology and co-develop a new motorcycle engine mounting system. The first product from the new alliance will be the C3 X132 Hellcat, with deliveries set to begin Oct. 31 at Confederate Motors’ new facilities in New Orleans.
Under the new partnership, Confederate will initially sell its motorcycles through a factory direct plan while developing dealer and S&S service networks in the second half of 2010.
“We are combining the strengths of the number-one motorcycle power plant manufacturer with those of the premium motorcycle manufacturer to deliver heirloom product solutions for our customers,” says Matt Chambers, founder and chief executive officer of Confederate Motors. “This alliance will permit both companies to extend our customer bases and provide profitable growth.”
