Retro-Modern Motorcycles

The Horex VR6 From Horex Motorcycle is a Classic Contemporary Ride

— June 20, 2010 — Autos
Although German motorcycle Horex stopped producing bikes in 1950, the Horex VR6 marks their triumphant return to the spotlight. The Horex VR6 is powered by a specially-built six-cylinder VR6 1,200 cc engine and boasts 197 bhp and 110 pounds per foot of torque.

The Horex VR6 motorcycle also features a rubber belt at the rear wheel to ensure power delivery remains smooth. The bike will initially only be available in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, but let's hope this retro-modern design also makes it over to North America.
Trend Themes
1. Retro-modern Motorcycles - The Horex VR6 from Horex Motorcycle is a perfect example of a classic contemporary ride by combining retro looks with modern technology.
2. Six-cylinder Engines - The Horex VR6's powerful six-cylinder engine could kickstart a trend in the motorcycle industry for high-performance motorcycles featuring six cylinders.
3. Rubber Belt Drive - With the Horex VR6 using a rubber belt to keep power delivery smooth, we may see more motorcycles utilizing this technology to enhance their overall riding experience.
Industry Implications
1. Motorcycle Manufacturing - Motorcycle manufacturers can capitalize on the trend of retro-modern motorcycles like the Horex VR6 to appeal to a younger market looking for unique designs and new technology.
2. Automotive Engineering - Automotive engineers can explore the potential of using six-cylinder engines in motorcycles to increase performance and power while maintaining fuel efficiency.
3. Motorcycle Accessories - The rubber belt drive on the Horex VR6 presents a new opportunity for accessory manufacturers to develop products that enhance the performance and durability of rubber belt drive systems on motorcycles.
