Horex VR6 Cafe Racer 33 ltd. unveiled


At 33,333 euros, it certainly isn't cheap, but the Horex Cafe Racer's VR6 engine is unique in the world of motorcycling 

Horex have announced a new variant of their 1200cc six-cylinder motorcycle - the VR6 Cafe Racer 33 ltd. "The bike's purist design and cafe racer styling feature simple lines with high-energy ergonomics. The VR6 Cafe Racer 33 ltd. brings the 'Roaring 60s' era of sportbikes to life," says a press release from Horex, which adds that only 33 units of this cafe racer will be built.

With its 126-horsepower and 120Nm six-cylinder engine (more details of the 'VR' layout here), fully adjustable Öhlins 43mm FGRT upside-down fork and TTX 36 monoshock, milled-from-alloy clip-on handlebars, rearset footrests, covered tailpiece, black-anodized spoked wheels from Kineo and brown-silver paintwork, we think the Horex VR6 Cafe Racer 33 ltd. looks quite cool. The bike weighs 249 kilos dry, has a claimed top speed of 250km/h and carries a price tag of 33,333 euros.
