I got a chance to see a couple Horex's (Horii?) last year.  Sharp looking.

You know yer gettin' old when 197 hp and 6 cylinders makes you go "meh"  :D

Gimme a Norton Manx with 50 hp and a booming exhaust  :bigok:

peeerrrty bike. Think it would be nice to own if it was a tad cheaper. Wonder how much torque it puts out. Also wonder about the MPG.

OK, the new mock up looks a lot better than the previous artist's impression.

rather reminds me of a 1970s superbike with that round headlight  :)

Title: Re: New Horex
Post by: Orson on September 30, 2010, 04:03:30 pm

I think it's a new start up company that bought out the Horex name.

I think it's a new start up company that bought out the Horex name.


And funded by the German government and a major German bank.

This thing will live and breathe. And make the Speed Triple look like a complete wimp. 200BHP....

Oh, sure. Horex makes 'em for the wealthy collector crowd. We'll never see one on the road outside of a Concours d'Elegance somewhere. Still cool, though. And it appeals to me in a way that a $45k chopper never will.

Dear MFGs...

We're in the midst of a screwed up global economy. Grow your brand with affordable stuff, and dance out the swank later, when you own an appreciable bit of the already-crowded market.

Just saying.

Lovingly,

Some guy who buys bikes and won't ever buy a $30k plus "premium" bike.

Have you seen a lot of V6 bike before?  For that reason alone I find it pretty interesting.  Plus the 200hp figure.  Stylistically it is not very exciting, but that is the wolf in sheep's clothing thing.

Oh, come on.  it costs far, far more to tool up a factory full of high-speed production equipment, so you can churn out CBRs by the thousands, than it does to set up a little one-off shop dependent on expensive hand labour...believe me, most "boutique" builders would love to produce "affordable stuff" in quantity, but they can't afford to.  A good case in point: sure, Harley shut down Buell, but keep in mind that Buell actively seeked the original merger with H-D; it was H-D's money that allowed Buell to move out of a converted barn and into a proper production facility, and that allowed Buell to bring prices into line and become competetive in the market.  If Buell hadn't sold out to H-D, the company probably wouldn't have survived the 25 years it did (and it would be doing even better now, if not for a certain short-sighted, hard-nosed CEO...).

the Roadster looks like a Griso with no jugs from the back. I think they all look good.

Seems like an inline six would make a nice touring bike.

It would be nice to see a faired touring version, even though the price is a bit too high.

It's actually a very narrow 15 degree V configuration, almost inline.


The looks have definitely grown on me, though I do wish the tail section were a little less droopy looking.

Horex was founded nearly a hundred years ago.

The new bike has a very different engine/exhaust noise. I wish them well.

From the Wikipedia
"narrow-angle, six-cylinder supercharged engine"
"aluminum bridge frame with a steel steering head forms the chassis. A single swing arm controls the rear wheel, while the engine power is transferred by a belt drive system."

Hell, sounds good so far :thumbsup:
