Meh...

If it was Italian - it'd be dead sexy.  

IMO it looks far more German than Italian.

It's a race to see which manufacturer reaches the market first...Horex or Motus?

The Motus will take as long to get to Yurp as the Exwhore will take to get to the States, which is awesome, b/c I'd like to have both.   Bigsmile

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'd like to go buy a lotto ticket.   Lol

Horex VR6 Classic

Horex VR6 Individual

The Horex VR6 Roadster


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 will be interesting to see where they will fit and what the direction/goal will be.

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

Also - the article fails to mention the incredible price tag.

Sweet bike though.   Bigok
