Video: Horex VR6 onboard

Video shot by German magazine Motorrad has revealed the distinctive sound of the new Horex VR6 Roadster. The VR6 makes 161bhp and produces 100ftlb of torque, delivered at low rpm - 66ftlb of torque is delivered at 2000rpm, while 3500rpm delivers 74ftlb of torque.

160bhp on a sit-up-and-beg bike does'nt really work. Whats it going to handle like near the limit, and if you are not planning on taking it to the limit, you don't need 160bhp on a bike like this. I think you would be better off with a 1250 Bandit and save a lot of money, unless you want to pose at your local bike meet. And what does it cost to service? Should have been shaft drive.

looking at certain areas.....

But without seeing it in the flesh. I reckon all the money went into the engine design. Is there a Price yet?

Well I just love it

Maybe it's my age - I had a cb900 from new, and had an xjr1300sp for that late 70s/early 80s image. But this thing looks and sounds wonderful. If the tank capacity allows at least a 150 mi comfy range, then I'll add it to my (dream!) list. I can see myself trying to relive the weekend dash to the bol d'or - Paul Ricard - of the past.

Nice but irrelevent

Oddly I was thinking Hesketh too as I watched the video. Rich mans plaything to sit alongside a few other toys in the select few garages, so probably largely irrelevant but the biking world is enriched by such oddities. Would be a good one in Top Trumps I'm sure!
