MS Dhoni’s New and Unusual Bike - Confederate X132 Hellcat

MS Dhoni’s love for bikes is no secret. According to reports, the Indian captain owns fourteen bikes and he has recently posted pictures of his new ‘unusual bike’ on Twitter. Well, no suspense here. It’s a Confederate X132 Hellcat and he paid a whopping Rs. 28 lakh to own it. Other superheroes who own the same super bike are Brad Pitt, David Beckham and Tom Cruise.

More About the Bike:

Named after the legendary F6F Hellcat fighter plane of WWII, the X132 Hellcat is the result of an uncompromised design and manufacturing approach. Drawing on the first and second generation Hellcats distinctive drag race architecture, the third generation Confederate X132 Hellcat advances that architecture with innovative engineering and avant-garde design.

The centerpiece of this uncompromised approach is the Hellcat's billet aluminum case. Instead of the usual casting method, the Hellcat's case is machined from two blocks of billet 6061 aircraft grade aluminum. This new case unites America's best V-Twin technology and America's superior powertrain technology into a singularity.

Although this material selection and craft methodology is expensive, it is simply the best approach for maximizing strength and guaranteeing permanence. Simply put, the X132 Hellcat is America's most substantive road bike.

Engine Specs: X132 Copperhead; 132 cubic inches (2,163 cc); 56° Fuel Injected V-Twin; 4.4” Bore x 4.4” Stroke; One-piece Forged Crank; Journal Bearing Design. The engine delivers a whopping 132 BHP and 150 lbft of torque.
