It is probably safe to say that Europeans typically have a different perspective than Americans when it comes to v-twin customs. Italian designer Oberdan Bezzi, nevertheless, is fascinated by the designs of Confederate Motorcycles, the U.S.-based manufacturer of low volume, high priced v-twin customs.
This is Bezzi’s own take on a Confederate machine with European influence. He calls it “Breath of Satan”.

- Having just gotten rid of one XB9R and a XB12R, I have to ask – what’s
the use? I just went Triumph Speed Triple and I ain’t goin back to any
kind of HD motor in no way, shape, or form. Long live the Queen! -Trpldog
- “Breath of Satan needed one more “6”! Rick
- Show me a Hells Angel that would ride to Hell on this. Harry
- This rendering truly shows the artistry of Obiboi it almost borders on alchemy.
To be able to transform one of Confederates POS designs into a thing of beauty
is truly amazing. But seriously Mr Bezzi’s illustration depicts what a
Confederate product would look like if an actual designer was involved in the development
process. Cheers, Kevin
- this is a drawing or an actual mock up? rear drive sprocket/chain look odd – Mac
- A bikini-screen, subframe/faux tank, numberplate and some KTM Orange a ‘Satan’ bike does not make. Weak. Brett
