Are the Deutsche developing the same disease that makes Americans resurrect defunct names like Indian?

Cool looking concept. Get with me in 2012 when Duke can get his hands on one for a test. Right now they look a little heavy (VR6 and supercharger).

They revived the brand so they'd be able to say "I mounted my HoreX and rode all night."

Cool engine though. And supercharged. Woohoo!

I always thought the VR6 would make for a great motorcycle mill, I'm glad someone else thinks so too.

Is the supercharger really necessary? I'd think it would produce plenty enough power in a normally aspirated state, and be lighter too. Very cool, though.

I like it better than the BMW Six concept of last year.

The infamous Red Porsche Killer was powered by 4 Horex twins, and ridden by comic strip character Werner.

It was pretty famous in Europe.
