By Motorcycle.Com Staff, Oct. 05, 2010
The Horex VR6-powered roadster prototype made its public debut, appearing at the 2010 INTERMOT show in Cologne, Germany.

The Horex brand took another step torwards its resurrection with the presentation of the roadster in Germany. The new Horex motorcycle uses a VR6 engine using technology developed by Volkswagen.

After pictures of our new roadster appeared exclusively in the media, we were looking forward to seeing how bike fans would react to our baby at the trade show, says Clemens Neese, Horex chief executive officer. We were pleased to see how interested visitors were in the bike's technical details and VR6 engine.

VR6 engine configuration uses two rows of three cylinders in a 15 degree V configuration.

According to Horex, the roadster is now in its final engineering phase with the team working on optimizing the configuration of the intake system and electronics to get ready for initial road tests.
