Video released by new German manufacturer Horex shows their V6-engined VR6 on the road in what appears to be showroom-ready form.

The video gives the first glimpse at the sound of the unique 1218cc narrow-angle V6.

The all-new VR6 Roadster has a series of innovations including a clever and compact 1218cc six-cylinder engine. The bike will have 161bhp and a thumping 100ftlb of torque which comes in some impressively low rpm slugs. The six-cylinder engine delivers 66ftlb of torque at 2000rpm, increasing to 74ftlb at 3500rpm.

The performance figures in the lower engine speed range are topped by a maximum 100ftlb of torque at 7000rpm.
