doesnt look to bad

styling does look slightly dated but i like that with a decent paint job it would look great as for all that power im sure it would keep most people grining all day long but i cant see it being able to compete with the rocket 3 roadster or a ducati diavel unless its cheaper and they can prove its going to be a more reliable more enjoyable bike

What more do you want, the bike has an inovative and unique engine layout. If that is not 'something new' to the table then I dont know what is!

 

Whats more thery are a tiny company. Inovation like this shames the bigger bike manufacturers.

Looks terrific

... in my opinion. Standard motorcycle looks, well proportioned, fascinating engine. As ever price and (un)availability will dictate whether this is just comic lust or a real option.

Sooo, when will the lawsuit from VW be forthcoming? Golf VR6 anyone? Unless VW/Audi have a stake in in it?

modern CBX ?

does this remind anybody else of the CBZ1000 brought up to date?

I think it looks great with a strong engine at sensible revs, nice alternative to the shaft / chain argument with a no maintenance chain.

All we need is a UK dealership and some nice bits from Wunderlich like a small screen and this should be a nice alternative

Won't need to be cheap as long as they're not silly about the pricing - I agree with earlier comment - about £15k would be about ball-park

Price at launch in early 2012 in Germany is 20,700 euros,at current exchange rates about £17,500 without splitting hairs.

Horex are currently only going to sell the bike in Germany,Austria and Switzerland they are looking at the rest of europe in 2013.
