OH Yes Horex are Back Again

German motorcycle manufacturer Horex have started producing two versions of their VR6 powered road bikes. Once a famous global brand, Horex started building bikes in 1923 and in the mid-1950s they were one of the global leaders with the 350 Regina model. But like so many once prestigious brands, they fell on hard times. After a previous failed comeback, the company are now owned by 3C Carbon, who took over in 2015. Thanks to investment, Horex are now building two redeveloped bikes, a heritage model called the Classic and a sportier Café Racer.

Both use Horex’s VR6 engine, which has a very narrow 15-degree V angle, making it appear to be almost a square six, with a capacity of 1218cc and peak power of 163bhp. Both bikes have fully self-supporting carbon subframes and the Café Racer also has a carbon trellis frame, which mounts directly to the engine. The Classic has a tubular steel frame. With Öhlins suspension, Brembo brakes and a single sided swingarm, both models are no-expense-spared designs, and are tailored to each rider via a variety of bar and pegs positions as well as colours and seat options. But this comes at a cost. The Classic is 42,500 Euros while the Café Racer will cost 46,500. Horex are planning to build several hundred bikes a year, and started production on September 1.
