Engine looks cool...  I see its a S&S..  Anyone know if its based on anything, or just their own design? Im used to seeing them offer the custom HD stuff.

The perfect gift for the poser who has way too much of everything except brains or common sense.  As a one-off design exercise, I think it is interesting.  As something to buy - see first sentence.

Even if I won the lottery it would not make my garage. But I am sure there are some who like it.

That is one ugly bike.  I'm not sure why anyone would want a bike like this.

At least they are trying different stuff. The Guzzi's stagnation model releasing the same old bike with bold new colors is as boring as a bowl of cornflakes.

$10k to anodize the frame & fork. That tells you all you need to know. A dumb concept wrapped up in an ugly package with a big $150k dollar pricetag as a bow. Ridiculous. Needs 200% more skulls. Lol 'Combat Motors' what a joke. Motorcycling is a fun diversion hobby ~or~ a utilitarian tool for simple and cost effective transportation. Rolling up to a bike show on your COMBAT motorcycle in your tacticool urban camo riding gear is the height of lame.

I am a Confederate owner. I stopped dead in my tracks when i saw one for the first time, had to have one. I would not even look twice at their bikes now. Matt Chambers and his design team must be fans of the Tron movies.  My bike is a2001 Hellcat fast and great handling machine.

The pre-modern era girder front end reeks of the same designer - he calls himself an engineer - who "did" the Motus. The same guy who cut part of his hand off with a band saw.

I wonder if the hydraulic clutch line is routed so close to the cylinders that it boils the clutch fluid ala Motus. That would necessitate a clutch bleed before every ride also ala Motus.

Beware of poorly engineered, hyper-expensive "designer" motorcycles.

According to the page, "The new 2021 Combat Wraith will have a limited run of no more than 21 units."

Whew!  Though that may still be 21 units too many...

The saddest thing is that I predict that all 21 will be sold, if they haven't been already.

You all miss the point. It was never built to actually ride. It's a wealthy persons statement " look at me I can drop 155K on a pointless next to un-rideable motorcycle"  OCC with some "engineering"

Yes, you are right, lucky phil...I missed the point... :rolleyes: :shocked: :huh: 

Imagine if someone gave you $155,000 and said: 

Go ahead, buy a motorcycle or three that you really like!!

But if someone "gave" you $155,000 to spend on a motorcycle how much did you pay for it?

Sorry, not actually aimed at you personally. If I was given $155kUS and had to spend it on bike/s that thing wouldn't even make the long list. Nor would any perceived "classic" bikes which are totally overvalued these days. I'd go for a few modern classics which will hold their value and or improve and are light years better engineering and better as a motorcycle in every respect.
