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.
