Horex have unveiled their new VR6 HL ('Heritage Line'), which is available in both single-seat and classic twin-seater versions. The bike supposedly pays homage to the late-1940s Horex Regina, though it's hard to figure out a connect between that machine, which was powered by a 340cc single-cylinder engine, and the current Horex VR6, which is fitted with a 1218cc supercharged narrow-angle V6. Horex, now owned by 3C Carbon AG, plans to produce a limited number of their V6-engine bike, using high-spec components and ensuring very high standards of fit and finish. And indeed, the VR6 HL gets the obligatory Öhlins suspension and Brembo brakes. There are also other variants of the VR6, including a cafe racer, and 'classic,' 'black' and 'silver' edition bikes.

The Horex VR6 HL's V6 engine produces 168 horsepower and 138Nm of torque and the bike weighs 221 kilos, dry. The seat is upholstered in high-grade leather and there's ABS, LED headlamp and taillamp, and Bosch ABS. Looks quite interesting to us and we hope to see more of this machine in the future.
