BIRMINGHAM, AL – November 27, 2009 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Confederate Motorcycles, a premiere American-made luxury motorcycle manufacturing company, will unveil a new apparel line, created exclusively for Confederate by Kushitani at the Los Angeles Auto Show December 4-13.
“It’s a thrilling time to be a part of Confederate,” Matt Chambers, CEO and founder of Confederate Motors, said. “We have made some important and exciting partnerships with the world’s best creators of motorcycle apparel and helmets and it is an honor to be able to provide these items for our current and future clients.”
Chambers spent several years meeting with the world’s top clothiers before developing an exclusive line of motorcycle apparel with world-renowned Kushitani. Designed exclusively for Confederate, Kushitani will handcraft two leather jackets and a leather jean for the company.
“We were immediately impressed with the caliber of materials and hand-craftsmanship that went into the creation of our new apparel line,” Chambers said. “It’s not easy to match our sensibilities for design, style and luxury, but Kushitani rose far above the challenge and we could not be happier with the end product. We are ecstatic for the opportunity to show off the new line at the LA Auto Show.”
Also on hand at the L.A. Auto Show will be the latest Confederate creation, the P120 Fighter Combat. As with previous Confederate models, the new Fighter has caused a sensation amongst motoring connoisseurs. Incorporating a massive 120 cubic-inch motor (1966cc) into a lightweight aluminum frame, producing an astounding 145 lb-ft of torque and 160 rear wheel horsepower, the agile and powerful machine also takes Confederate’s hallmark design to new heights, resulting in a creation that can only be described as breathtaking.
