We have written about the Horex brand as it tries to re-establish itself with the production of an unusual six-cylinder machine. Recently, reader Tom Barber wrote an excellent analysis of the engine powering these good looking (in the author’s opinion) bikes.
The financial pressures, and obstacles, faced by a new motorcycle manufacturer must be immense. Horex is selling bikes, but according to news reports it has recently entered insolvency proceedings to protect itself from creditors as it struggles to get off the ground.
Horex is apparently keeping its employees paid while it looks for new capital, and continues to produce the three versions of its VR6, including the Roadster, Classic and Cafe Racer.
