Combat Motors shows off its hand-built Wraith cruiser.

The new Combat Wraith will have a limited run of no more than 21 units.

Combat Motors’ unmistakable style is on full display with its new 2021 Combat Wraith, highlighted by elements like thick girder forks and fully exposed internals. Only 21 cruisers will be produced, in either raw machined aluminum ($155,000) or with a black anodized finish ($165,000). Production has already commended on the initial units, with the first deliveries expected this July.

Editor’s note: Previously known as Confederate Motorcycles, last year the Birmingham, Alabama company changed its name to Combat Motors.

Dropping that kind of cash is going to get you a fully hand-built, USA-made motorcycle with a 2,163cc S&S Cycle V-twin engine which provides 145 hp at 5,100 rpm and 160 pound-feet torque at 2,000 rpm. It’s equipped with a proprietary five-speed gearbox and Bandit Machine Works hydraulically actuated dry clutch.

The raw aluminum Combat Wraith will be $10,000 less expensive than the black anodized version.

The engine serves as a stressed member of the machined aluminum monocoque frame. The girder setup at the front utilizes CNC-machined struts and a fully adjustable Race Tech shock. At the rear, the CNC-machined aluminum swingarm is connected to a cantilever Race Tech shock with adjustable compression and rebound damping. You’ll roll on 19-inch front and 17-inch rear carbon wheels wrapped in Pirelli Diablo Rosso III rubber. The 560-pound machine cuts speed with dual Beringer floating Aeronal cast iron discs and radially mounted Beringer Aerotec calipers at the front and an Aeronal disc, two-piston Beringer caliper setup at the rear.

Interlinked forward-mount and rear-mount foot controls allow riders to switch on the fly.

The design of the bike calls back to the company’s original 2008 Wraith, not only by its front suspension configuration but also with its arched, 4.5-gallon fuel tank spine. It’s not all old business though, as a new interlinked foot control setup makes its debut allowing the rider the option to switch between forward-mount or rear-mount foot controls at any time.

The signature girder front end is a hallmark element of most Combat Motors machines.

The build process will be a little different this time around though, as buyers will now have the chance to watch their machine take shape. Combat Motors plans to film master builder Jason Reddick hand-assembling each of the machines so future Combat Wraith owners get the chance to see a time-lapse of the birth of their motorcycle.
