Transformers The Last Knight – Mohwak

Confederate P51 Combat Fighter

Motorcycles have appeared in movies for ages and the latest movie motorcycle is the Confederate P51 Combat Fighter. This motorcycle is inspired and named after the real North American P-51 Mustang combat fighter from World War 2 although you’d have to have decent imagination to see any similarity.

The Confederate P51 Combat Fighter features in the 2017 Transformers : The Last Knight movie staring as a Decepticon Transformer called Mohawk.

Back to real life, I’ve seen Confederate motorcycles at various motor shows and admired them for their attention to detail and design, transforming normal motorcycle parts and expensive materials into something that can be described as beautiful. (See my Instagram posts for more.) Confederate motorcycles are high customised and they make them in very low numbers. That is the point of a Confederate, it is not about pace around a race circuit, it’s top speed or engine power output it is all about the exclusivity, craftsmanship, customisation and construction. That said the P51’s top speed is around 160mph, according to their press which is plenty.

The Confederate P51 Combat Fighter is priced approximately $125,000USD  depending on specification could be much more, based on Internet searches. Well worth the money if you want something completely different to the mass market and HD dominated custom market.

I honestly think the Confederate P51 it is the best custom motorcycle you can buy at the moment.

2014 Harley Davidson Project Livewire

This week’s post is on Harley first attempt at making an electric motorcycle. (Although I’m late again with the news)

Last week Harley Davidson released a rideable prototype electric motorcycle called Project Livewire.  To quote the press release: “While not for sale, Project LiveWire is specifically designed for the purpose of getting insight into rider expectations of an electric Harley-Davidson motorcycle.”

The Project Livewire electric motorcycle is different from the others I’ve seen in that it actually looks good in the sense that it is now overly big or has too many awkward lines. (Zero are you paying attention!?) However most of all it actually makes a pretty cool noise – like every Harley.  There are plenty of videos on Youtube you can check out and listen to.

While Project Livewire does not sound like the traditional and trademarked Harley Davidson sound this one sounds like the effects from any number of sci-fi movies you can recall!  It will be interesting how it progresses as the existing electric bikes are quite expensive. It is interesting to note how no other current manufacturer has equipped their electric vehicles with this type of noise!
