The Horex VR6 supercharged motorcycle

The Horex VR6 supercharged motorcycle
Is that svelt or what?
German brand Horex hasn’t made a motorcycle for 50 years – but since a new ownership team took over the brand name in 2007, plans have been afoot to change that – and at this year’s Intermot in Cologne, we got our first close-up look at what the new owners are playing at. The Horex VR6 is a modern super-naked featuring a staggered six-cylinder engine with forced induction via a belt-drive supercharger. The quick-revving motor will develop up to a meaty 200 horsepower, putting it right up with Yamaha’s 2009 V-Max in the musclebike stakes.

I just like the way that the engine has been configured to make it compact and how it manages to give the rider six cylinder smoothness and power  without the bulk and excess mass evident it machines Like Kawasaki’s z13 or Honda’s six cylinder  machines.
